Jaguar posts largest quarterly loss ever

Tata Motors has posted their biggest quarterly loss in corporate history of about $4 billion. This is a result of both slumping sales in China, which are half of that they used to be and that demand for diesels in Europe continues to drop. Brexit could only make things worse for this struggling automaker. https://jalopnik.com/jaguar-land-rov...wit-1832406598

Times are really tough for JLR and they need a serious revamp strategy if they hope to stay competitive in the industry. With the cuts they are making at various manufacturing plants, we are probably going to see lower volumes of their models being made.

Reliability issues are still holding them back and its one major barrier to owning any european vehicle for most people.
Its only solved by offering features you can't get elsewhere and to an extent JLR does that but clearly not enough under Jaguar.

That's really one of the key issues with their products. They don't offer anything that can't be found elsewhere, and a lot of the time competing brands do it for cheaper. You can expect a radically different lineup to start in the next few years.

Design wise Jaguar can do something unique like what they have in the past. This goes all the way back to their early motorsports days that seen revolutionary models and even more importantly, models that influenced other automakers to launch vehicles inspired by Jaguars accomplishments.
The E-Type was one of them for anyone who remembers and a favorite of mine till this day.

They'll be making big cuts to their sedan lineup and will be doubling down on crossovers and SUV's. Unless of course they plan on expanding their number of electric variants, which could breathe new life into their dwindling XF and XE models. Less working capital could also put the Project 9 at risk.

the next step for anyone one of us interested the next Jaguar sedan will be looking out for the new platform

Quote:
Along with considering merging the XE and XF sedans’ platform, Jaguar is also evaluating a single flexible platform for its mainstream range.
Quote:
JLR will be going the hybrid or electric route with a number of models including the upcoming all-new XJ electric sedan. In a presentation made last year by JLR’s executive director of corporate and strategy, Hanno Kirner, plans to launch a number of mid-height vehicles in the future (possibly the rumoured Road Rover series) were in the works, along with more vehicles with a small frontal area, as aerodynamic efficiency for range becomes more important. At the same presentation, he also hinted at a platform for the future I-Pace that will be shared with a sporty model, claiming an eventual replacement for the F-Type, which may be badged as the I-Type.

I've read that the Jaguar XJ EV could have upwards of 1,000lb-ft of torque. It will share its platform with the I-Pace but will use electric motors at each wheel rather than one on each axel, essentially doubling the outputs we see on that model.
