The new Jaguar J-Pace will be built on the new MLA platform that will also underpin Land Rover's upcoming luxury SUVs. Jaguar Land Rover is one of the well-known luxury car manufacturers in the world.

Jaguar produces some of the best luxury and performance sedans and coupes while Land Rover is known for their SUVs, right from the Defender to the flagship Range Rover. In 2015 though, Jaguar made history by announcing that it would for the first time produce an SUV.

Jaguar finally unveiled the F-Pace at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show and the SUV went into production in 2016. The F-Pace has since then been one of Jaguar's best-selling vehicles. Following the success of the F-Pace, Jaguar launched the I-Pace in 2018.

The I-Pace is an all-electric 5-door SUV and has been doing reasonably well. However, it seems like the well-known sports car manufacturer can't resist the thought of more SUVs in its line-up. Jaguar has now revealed that it is working on the J-Pace.

The J-Pace as mentioned earlier will be positioned higher than the F-Pace. It will also be sold with a variety of powertrain options, including electric powertrain. Jaguar Land Rover had earlier announced that every new model line that will be introduced from 2020 will have at least one electric variant.

The upcoming Jaguar J-Pace too would be developed keeping this in mind. The ultimate aim and result is to have pure electric cars. However, it would take time to get there and Jaguar Land Rover is taking baby steps, by introducing electric variants alongside its petrol and diesel counterparts.

Of these, the XJ will be launched first, bringing in the much-awaited all-electric Jaguar XJ. The new models will also come with a brand-new design language. At the moment though, details are scarce.
