It seems the success of Tesla Motors does not give rest to the main German producers of luxury cars, each of which is planning for the future product that could compete with mega car company from Silicon valley.
Jaguar also decided to throw their forces on electric cars. She made the decision to abandon development of a new supercar and be developing two EV models.
One of the electrical innovations of "Jaguar" will be "pachydermata". What is exactly the body type she will receive is still unknown: the head of the company Ralph Shpet considers this to be a sedan, then as chief designer of the brand Ian Kollam insists on the big "four-door coupe" (in fact, liftback). Future electric cars will subsequently replace the flagship Jaguar XJ sedan, build it on a completely new platform. See the light machine by 2019.
After the sedan or liftback Jaguar will release electrocreaser. In the next two years the company plans to release an electric version of the SUV F-Pace, which, according to rumors, will be called E-Pace. However, in this case we are talking about a completely different car. It is anticipated that it will be offered with rear or all-wheel drive and batteries in three versions capacity.
The expected volume of sedan/liftback – 20 thousand cars a year, crossover – 30-50 thousand units.
P. S. And remember, only by changing their consumption — together we change the world! ©
