- Jaguar has registered the new C-Pace moniker with the EUIPO
- It is most likely a new addition in Jaguar’s growing SUV portfolio.
- The C-Pace is rumoured to be a coupe-SUV version of the F-Pace.
Jaguar is expanding its SUV portfolio since the introduction of their first-ever SUV – the F-Pace. Within a year of introduction of the F-Pace, the British carmaker introduced the E-Pace. And more recently, the I-Pace became its first all-electric product from Coventry. There are reports of a full-size flagship SUV called the J-Pace which will arrive sometime in 2021. Now, the JLR has trademarked a new C-Pace moniker with the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office).
The all-new C-Pace would be a new member in the Jaguar’s growing SUV line-up. But,where it will be positioned in the SUV portfolio is still anybody’s guess. After all, the E-Pace is an entry-level crossover and the F-Pace is the mid-size executive SUV. According to reports, the C-Pace could be a coupe version of the F-Pace, but even that is uncertain at the moment.
The C-Pace moniker is registered under multiple classifications which include classifications for computers, autonomous technology, motor vehicles and maintenance, repair and servicing. It might be based on the same Range Rover platform and sharing most of its powertrain with the F-Pace. A hybrid powertrain has not been ruled out either. Jaguar might introduce the new C-Pace in the Chinese market first where there has been a huge demand for the SUVs lately. The new off-roader might even be manufactured in China to keep the cost competitive. There is no other information available at the moment and we’ll have to wait for official word from the British carmaker.
