Editor's note: The platform planned for the Jaguar E-Pace was misidentified in an earlier version of this story.
Jaguar confirmed that the E-Pace compact model will become the brand's second SUV/crossover next year, joining the larger F-Pace. A third crossover, the battery-powered I-Pace, will be added to Jaguar's lineup, also next year.
It's unclear what platform the E-Pace will ride on. But like the Macan, the E-Pace will be a high-performance crossover, Jaguar says. It will compete against cars such as the BMW X1.
"The combination of sports car looks with Jaguar performance will ensure that the E-Pace stands out," Ian Callum, Jaguar director of design, said in a statement.
Technical details are few, but Jaguar says the E-Pace will be available with the company's Ingenium gasoline and diesel engines. The E-Pace will come standard with all-wheel drive.
Jaguar will officially introduce the E-Pace in London on July 13.
The E-Pace, like the I-Pace, will be built by the Austrian contract manufacturer Magna Steyr at its plant in Graz, the magazine Automobil Produktion reported on Wednesday, citing company sources.
