Jaguar C-Pace Speculation


Model

At this point, what the C-Pace could be is anyone's best guess and quite a few automotive publications tried to connect the dots with few leads to go on. One possibility is another electric crossover, a rumor supported by no ICE platforms with JLR currently to support the other vehicle it could be, a coupe styled compact crossover. Offering any bigger product is unlikely with the F-Pace taking top spot and the E-Pace falling right under in a lucrative segment. Another important fact to consider is the brands new naming scheme that has been honored with all new models and no attempt to break it.

Quote:
The electric I-Pace bucks the Jaguar naming scheme, so could the C-Pace be another electric crossover? Perhaps one that’s smaller and more affordable? It would be surprising if the C-Pace were bigger than the F-Pace since that space is unofficially reserved for the name J-Pace to match up with the full-size XJ.

Quite where the new potential new model might fit into the Jaguar range isn't clear. The British marque currently fields two traditional crossover models: the F-Pace and the E-Pace.
Quote:
Another possibility is a "coupe SUV" based on either the E-Pace or F-Pace. While this would seemingly break the neat relationship in the brand's naming scheme — with the XE seemingly related to the E-Pace, and the F-Pace paired with the XF — things are already a little muddled up thanks to the all-electric I-Pace, which is smaller but more exclusive than F-Pace.

There have also been rumours of a new range-topping crossover based on the full-size Range Rover, although this car is widely expected to be christened J-Pace to line it up logically with the XJ.

If we had to guess, we’d say the C-Pace will be a coupe version of the F-Pace with a rearward sloping roofline and narrow, sporty-looking greenhouse. We’re only making an educated guess, though. We’ll have to wait for Jag’s official announcement (if that ever comes) to truly know what the C-Pace could be.

Platforms

A fundamental part about figuring out what type of Jaguar model the C-Pace could be comes down to platforms. Once figured out, often the rest can be figured out with ease. Except in this case, any direction is possible with the current lack of information. A "coupe SUV" riding on the same platform underpinning the E-Pace/Evoque, the one under the XE/XF/F-Pace or even an entirely new platform are all up for grabs. The latter is a long shot because other JLR products would be required which at this moment, there are none. At best we can figure out the next sound financial move for Jaguar to make, especially as Tata Motors reports a 52-week low with slow November 2018 sales for Jaguar.

Quote:
It's possible the C-Pace could be a new entry-level model for the Jaguar brand, but the wider Jaguar Land Rover stable currently doesn't have a platform smaller than the Evoque's to work with, and isn't clear if the 'D8' platform can be scaled down a class.

But where would the C-Pace fit in with the current lineup? Jaguar’s current crossover naming scheme matches its sedans with the E-Pace being related to the XE and the F-Pace sharing a platform with the XF. Since there’s no Jaguar XC, it’s pretty open to speculation where the C-Pace could potentially land.
Quote:
It’s possible that the C-Pace will just be a subcompact luxury SUV slotted below the E-Pace. It’s a quickly growing segment with little luxury utes like the Mercedes-Benz GLA and BMW X1 hogging all the market share. If that were the case, the C-Pace would likely be based on a new platform since Jaguar and Land Rover don’t make anything that small.

Quote:
One classification in particular, Nice Classification 9, is typically used for systems related to autonomous driving. This may imply that the C-Pace could utilize self-driving features. Nothing else about the trademark is known, so we are left to speculate what the C-Pace could be. Based on the name alone, the C-Pace could be a sub-compact SUV below the E-Pace, which would compete against models like the Audi Q2. Another option is a SUV-coupe model, which would use the E-Pace or F-Pace platform with a more coupe-like body style on it - like the BMW X4 and X6.

Trademark Application

Of course all of this comes back to the vague trademark filing placed around Q2 of 2018. It didn't provide a clear indication of what we can expect, being in three different classifications of goods and services that varies from it being a car to technology and components, thus leaving Jaguar enthusiasts only with their best guess. Fortunately major automotive industry shows and events have kicked off, some of the biggest are yet to come and present another opportunity to put the pieces together. Currently Jaguar is "looking at the effectiveness of each motor show individually," mentioned in a statement to AutoCar, after announcing they will not be attending the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.

Quote:
Jaguar has just filed an application to trademark the name “C-Pace” with the E.U. Intellectual Property Office according to CarAdvice. Since Jaguar uses the “Pace” moniker for all of its crossovers, it’s reasonable to assume that the C-Pace will be some sort of SUV.

But where would the C-Pace fit in with the current lineup? Jaguar’s current crossover naming scheme matches its sedans with the E-Pace being related to the XE and the F-Pace sharing a platform with the XF. Since there’s no Jaguar XC, it’s pretty open to speculation where the C-Pace could potentially land.

As we note with all trademark filings, this application doesn't necessarily mean there will be a C-Pace production or concept model in the future.
Quote:
The application was filed just a few days ago, and covers three classes of goods and services, which encompass everything from cars, car modification and automotive parts through to pieces of technology, software, buildings, and charging stations.

I always thought there was a need for something along the lines of a Lexus UX and Infiniti QX30 rival from Jaguar.

Yeah the E-Pace sort of does it, but not directly. Slowly that segment is growing and Jaguar will need to compete 1 to 1.

Sorry to be a bit off topic but that teaser of the upcoming refreshed Defender peaked my interest. G-Wagons are too rich for my blood with a base of $120k USD.
Starting at 2/3 of that, the Defender will be set to attract folks like me.

I'm having a hard time finding concrete information beyond what this article gathered. Only thing I can add is "C" in the Jaguar name structure denotes a small vehicle.

Most reports about anything to do with the C-Pace point to an emphasis on the European market. Europe loves SUV/CUV/Crossovers especially the coupe types, so much that they get options that other markets don't.
From that analysis I'd say there's a 75% chance this is a coupe-SUV.

I'm also wondering if Jaguar's new model will be given some form of electrification. I know JLR has a plug in hybrid of the Evoque in development and I think they should also consider something under the Jaguar badge.

They would really benefit from some kind of hybrid system in the XE and XF models, because sales have really been slowing on them. Seems like the only market where JLR sales have increased is in India.

Hybridized version of the XE should have happened by now. Jaguar takes too long to adjust.

turns out that is in the works for 2019-2020 but we won't be hearing any more until Q1 of this year.


British marque Jaguar are coming into 2019 with a full schedule at hand it seems, with its smallest (and most affordable) model, the XE, is set to receive a mid-life facelift. But rather than limiting the revision to just the aesthetics, Jaguar intends to go a little further and have a little play with what’s going on under the skin too.

However, Jaguar seems to be preparing to offer the XE for the first time with a mild-hybrid powertrain, much like the ones fitted to the Range Rover Evoque, which basically involves the fitment of a belt-driven alternator-starter to an existing Ingenium engine, and a small lithium-ion battery tucked away somewhere into the architecture. With the 48V electrical system, the XE will benefit in terms of overall fuel economy & CO2 emissions, which is always a good thing.

2020 is looking to be a big model year for the XE so this could be the pivotal moment we also see refreshed powetrains.
