Jaguar Busting Stereotypes to Build Sales

Three SUVs, with more likely. Now add batteries.

Design Director Ian Callum gives the 2018 Jaguar E-Pace its U.S. preview.

Say the name, Jaguar, and you’re likely to picture a sleek sports car like the F-Type or a sexy sports sedan, like the big XJ. But reality for the British automaker is starting to look quite different.

Sure, it’s getting ready to roll out the $187,500 XE SV Project 8, at 592 horsepower the most powerful street-legal model it has ever produced. But when it comes to moving the sales needle, you need to look in the other direction, starting with the F-Pace, the British maker’s first sport-utility vehicle. After a long, downward spiral it almost single-handedly transformed Jaguar into the world’s fastest-growing automotive brand in 2016.

Jaguar is hoping that buyers will also flip for its new E-Pace SUV. The stunt earned a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Jaguar is hoping buyers will flip for the company’s new SUV, so it decided to have the E-Pace turn head-over-heels during a splashy London debut today. What’s clear is that the 50-foot jump, complete with a 270-degree barrel roll has earned Jaguar’s second SUV a Guinness World Record.

The E-Pace makes its appearance barely two years after the debut of the F-Pace, the larger utility vehicle now Jaguar’s best-selling offering – and together they reflect the dramatic shift in the global automotive market. In the U.S., in particular, utility models now account for more than 40% of overall vehicle sales, and they’re rapidly gaining traction in the luxury segment.

The five-seat compact SUV is based on a shortened version of the Lightweight Aluminum Architecture used for the F-Pace, as well as the 2016 Jaguar XF and the XE compact luxury sedan. The British maker has already revealed that it will reach showrooms early next year at a base price of $38,600 plus $995 delivery charges. (more…)
