Is the C-Pace a Europe-only Model?

This might turn out to be sad news for Americans as so Jaguar hasn't filed trademarks with a U.S. intellectual property office, so far that has only been in Europe. Its segment is also known to be a strong seller in Europe but is seeing growth state side. Similar speculation on availability happened with the Audi Q2 that long establish itself in Europe. Fortunately BMW and Mercedes took the plunge to make it happen.

Even without even the slightest of insight, it I think Jaguar's moves to launch the E-Paces soon after the F-Pace shows some potential for yet another utility vehicle.
What do you guys think the odds are it'll show up? If it doesn't, what are your alternatives?

Jaguar is running a risk here by offering so many similar sized and priced SUVs. I'm not quite sure how they plan on preventing internal competition and the cannibalizing of their flagship F Pace sales. Restricting it to key markets to gauge consumer interest might be the safest route.

On the aggressive end of the scale we have brands like Lexus that pushed to launch what would rival the C-Pace, Toyota/Lexus is a big player and often makes smart moves.
Now car makers have more tools to improve sales, subscription services and car sharing services can greatly help, its a different consumer mindset.

I think Lexus has done a fantastic job with the new UX, though I'm still not very interested in anything with a CVT. I know efforts have been made to make acceleration a bit more linear, but you can only do so much with simulated gear changes.

I don't think its wise for Jaguar to make region specific models, especially during a period in which their sales have been declining. Imo it might be wise for them to pull out of China altogether, at least until something changes with the on going trade war.

Done in the form of special edition vehicles should help them get more people buying but I wouldn't suggest going any further.

Most automakers have slowly been moving towards more global platforms, at least with vehicles where its cost effective to do so. With China being the biggest market, there is no way that Jaguar can afford to remove themselves from it.

Jaguar might just have to let the big boys go first before deciding to grab a piece of the pie, its the safest bet they can place unless Tata wants to be generous with cash flow.

They've got a big restructuring plan in place and you can expect that unsuccessful models will be put on the chopping block and reworked. Eventually everything is going to be cut down to just a few key modular platforms.

that's going to take a lot of work to the point we'll have to see self driving cars in the masses before that happens
