Jaguar J-Pace Flagship SUV Might Arrive In Two Years, Get PHEV Powertrain

Rumors about a possible Jaguar flagship SUV first emerged a couple of years ago, and if the latest report is correct, it’s expected in 2021, probably as a BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, Audi Q8 and Porsche Cayenne Coupe rival.

Unofficially named the J-Pace, it’s believed to be based on JLR’s MLA platform and could get a plug-in hybrid powertrain, says Autocar, with a turbo-six petrol engine powering the front wheels and an electric motor used for the rear axle. In the EV driving mode, it should cover at least 50 miles (80 km).

Jaguar might also launch a more affordable version of the rumored flagship SUV, with a four-cylinder engine, and if there is enough demand, then they could green light an all-electric variant as well.

Eliminating the traditional mechanical connection to the rear wheels will allow for a cleverer packaging for the battery pack. It will also improve space inside, as there won’t be a transmission tunnel. However, rear headroom will be affected by the rumored sloping roofline, unlike the next-gen Range Rover, which will utilize the same architecture.

Size wise, the J-Pace, which will sit above the E-Pace and F-Pace, is said to be roughly 4.9 meters (16 ft) long and should enjoy at least 650 liters (23 cu-ft) of boot space, or about the same as the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. Inside, it’s thought to use OLED screens, like the facelifted XE.
