The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo is just a "study" for now, but expect a production version to follow.

The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo is one of the big hits of this year’s Geneva Motor Show and while officially a concept vehicle, the battery-electric crossover is expected to soon follow into production the Mission E coupe launching next year.

Both cars will ride on a specially developed platform, dubbed J1. Meanwhile, sibling brand Audi’s upcoming E-tron Quattro battery-car will use the same MLB architecture as its more mainstream models, like the A4, as well as the new Bentley Bentayga SUV.

Electrifying News!

But, going forward, Those three luxury brands are partnering up to develop an entirely new and unique platform they will share for all future electric vehicles, according to a senior company official. Codenamed PPE, for Premium Platform Electric, it will go into all Audi, Bentley and Porsche electric vehicles from 2022 on.


Jaguar I-Pace Pricing Undercuts Tesla Model X

British EV SUV will match base range but falls short on acceleration.

by on Mar.07, 2018

Jaguar now has three SUVs in its line-up, though only the I-Pace is electrified.

Jaguar’s first-ever battery-electric vehicle will start at $70,495 – including delivery charges — when it reaches U.S. showrooms later this year, about $9,000 less than the Tesla Model S.

The British maker is giving the public a first close look at its first-ever battery-electric vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show this week. The I-Pace will soon join Jaguar’s expanding list of sport-utility vehicles which also includes the conventionally powered F-Pace and E-Pace models.

New Product News!

“We set out with a clean sheet approach to harness new battery electric technology with an architecture engineered from the outset to optimize EV performance, aerodynamics and interior space. The result is the I-PACE – a true Jaguar and a truly driver-focused EV,” Ian Hoban, Jaguar’s Vehicle Line Director, said during a media preview last week.


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.

Beyond the Headlines!

Now, Jaguar is hoping to pull off a similar feat with the launch of its second utility vehicle, the smaller E-Pace, which it rolled out for a sedate U.S. debut on Thursday after a much more spectacular unveiling in London two months ago. A third ute, the I-Pace, will feature a pure battery-electric drivetrain, will come to market late next year.

Jaguar's I-Pace race car version will find life as the maker plans to participate in Formula E.

Jaguar Land Rover is plugging into battery power in a big way. It plans to not only launch electrified drivetrain options for every vehicle in its line-up but is making a big push into electric racing.

Already one of the growing list of manufacturers competing in the Formula E series, the Jaguar side of the British automaker this week announced the world’s first production battery-electric vehicle race series.

News You Can Trust!

The 10-event series will showcase JLR’s first battery-electric model, the I-Pace eTrophy to serve as a support series for Formula E. The program will be opened to anyone “holding the relevant international race license,” the automaker announced, though there will be a “VIP driver” at every race, as well. (more…)

Jaguar Land Rover Electrifying Entire Line-Up

All models will offer hybrid or full electric options starting in 2020.

by on Sep.07, 2017

The shape of things to come? The Jaguar Future-Type is a battery-electric autonomous concept.

Even before its first battery-electric vehicle hits market, Jaguar Land Rover says it will adopt an all-electric strategy starting in 2020, making it the third European brand to plan offering some form of battery-based option for all of its vehicles.

The process will begin late next year with the roll-out of the fully electric Jaguar I-Pace SUV. In 2020, the British-based, Indian-owned automaker says every Jaguar and Land Rover model will be offered with a hybrid, plug-in hybrid or pure battery-electric vehicle – or HEV, PHEV and BEV – option.

“We will introduce a portfolio of electrified products across our model range, embracing fully electric, plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid vehicles,” Chief Executive Ralf Speth said during the company’s “Tech Fest” event in London.

Breaking News!

Automakers are coming under increasing pressure to electrify their product lines as governments around the world enact tougher emissions and mileage mandates. Britain, Norway, France and India are among those countries who have or expect to formally ban sales of new vehicles using internal combustion engines. Others, including Germany, are considering similar bans, while a number of cities in China have put in place restrictions meant to encourage sales of zero-emissions vehicles.


Jaguar Set to Reveal 2nd SUV

New Jaguar E-Pace to make world premiere on July 13 in London.

by on Jun.21, 2017

The new Jaguar E-Pace will compete with compact SUVs like the Audi Q3.

Jaguar is adding a second utility vehicle to its line-up, the compact E-Pace set to make its debut in London next month, with sales set to start in early 2018.

The compact performance utility vehicle will complement the bigger F-Pace which has already become the British marque’s best-seller since going on sale last year. Meanwhile, Jaguar is working up a third ute, the battery-powered I-Pace that is still more than a year from coming to market.

2018 Product News!

While Jaguar is saving a number of details for the London debut on July 13 it has already confirmed that the E-Pace will carry a base price of $38,600 – delivery fees – or about $3,000 less than the starting price for the 2017 F-Pace.


I-Pace Just First Step in Jaguar Electrification Plans

As much as 40 to 50% of its models could soon be battery-based.

by on Nov.16, 2016

Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover CEO, estimates that as much as 50% of Jaguar Land Rover's sales will be battery electric vehicles.

It took only a matter of minutes for the first buyer to reserve one of the new Jaguar I-Pace battery-electric vehicles, clicking on the “I Want” button added to the British maker’s website following the debut of a concept version at the Los Angeles Auto Show this week.

That was reassuring news for Jaguar’s top management team which authorized the costly development project that will see the production version of the I-Pace roll into showrooms in 2018. And the electric SUV is likely to be only the first in a wave of new battery-based models for both Jaguar and its sibling Land Rover brand, according to CEO Ralf Speth.

As much as “40 to 50%” of the Jaguar Land Rover line-up could use hybrid, plug-in or full battery-electric propulsion by 2020, Speth hinted during a conversation with a handful of journalists at the L.A. Auto Show. And while he declined to discuss specific plans, he acknowledged that the company did not develop the unique platform underpinning the I-Pace just for one product. (more…)

Jaguar I-Pace Concept Delivers Range, Performance

Production model set to reach showrooms by 2018.

by on Nov.15, 2016

The Jaguar I-Pace concept borrows from Tesla's design that pushes the battery packs into the floor to save space and improve handling.

Jaguar has been shaking things up since being sold to India’s Tata a few years back. The 2017 model-year brings the debut of the F-Pace, the British marque’s first sport-utility vehicle. And it won’t be the last, though the Jaguar I-Pace will push a very different boundary.

Making its official debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show this week, the Jaguar concept is a thinly disguised version of its first battery-electric vehicle, a long-range, high-performance SUV set to reach showrooms in late 2018.

Tech News!

The British marque isn’t simply stuffing batteries and electric motors into an existing platform, however. The Jaguar I-Pace Concept reveals a distinctive, cab-forward design meant to maximize the benefits of battery propulsion. That means neck-snapping acceleration as well as “class-above” passenger and cargo space. (more…)
