Jaguar may build a second crossover at Magna Steyr that would be larger than the F-Pace shown here.

Its own manufacturing capacity stretched to the limits, Jaguar Land Rover will turn to a contract manufacturer Magna Steyr to build a new crossover vehicle for the Jaguar brand.

Based in Graz, Austria, Magna Steyr has produced vehicles for a wide variety of manufacturers and brands over the years, a list currently including Mercedes-Benz, Peugeot and Mini. For Jaguar, the new partnership will create additional capacity needed to support future growth plans, according to Ralf Speth, JLR’s chief executive officer.

Jaguar will add its first crossover in 2016.

Jaguar wants to keep pace with the fast-changing global luxury market, and that means it will debut its first crossover-utility vehicle, the F-Pace, at this week’s North American International Auto Show.

The new model is part of a broad array of changes planned for the luxury maker and its British sibling, Land Rover, both of which will also launch a new generation of high-mileage clean diesel options across their product lines.

The F-Pace, which will join the Jaguar family next year, is the production version of the C-X17 concept vehicle first shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2013. It marks a dramatic shift in strategy at a brand that long debated even adding a station wagon to its line-up.

British maker continues to expand its reach.

Jaguar will reveal the C-X17 concept at Frankfurt - but could the production version be far behind?

Jaguar could be ready to make a major shift in direction, at least if the C-X17 concept vehicle it plans to unleash at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show is any indication.

The British automaker has long restricted itself to a narrow niche of luxury sedans, coupes and sports cars, only reluctantly adding a pair of wagons over the previous decade.  But the Jaguar C-X17 suggests that a new crossover-utility vehicle may finally be in the works, a belated concession that the highline automotive market has rapidly transformed itself in recent years, bigger competitors such as Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz racing to fill in every possible niche.

According to a terse release accompanying this teaser image, “The C-X17 has been created as a design study to introduce Jaguar’s new, highly-advanced, modular aluminum architecture.  The concept illustrates the diversity of vehicles that could be produced using this architecture, which underpins the innovative future of the Jaguar brand.”

British brands plan to shift from niche to mainstream.

by on May.03, 2011

A production version of the striking C-X75 concept would push the number of new Jaguar models and variants to 41.

It has been a roller-coaster ride for Jaguar over the last 15 years, but now part of the ambitious Indian Tata Motors, the British automaker has some ambitious plans in the work along with its sibling Land Rover brand.

Senior company officials tell TheDetroitBureau.com that the two brands will jointly be launching a major product assault over the next five years with the goal of lifting Jaguar and Land Rover out of their low-volume niches and planting them much more firmly in the luxury mainstream.

“We’ll be launching 40 new cars, derivatives and (major) technologies from Jaguar/Land Rover in the next five years,” said Adrian Hallmark, who joined Jaguar as its Global Brand Director last October.

The list of new programs breaks down into three categories: (more…)
