Jaguar is reportedly working on a crossover even smaller than the F-Pace.
Jaguar Land Rover has announced a partnership with Magna Steyr to build current and future models for the British brand in Graz, Austria. While JLR wouldn’t specifcy which models these would be, Auto Express is reporting that the first new model to be built at the plant will be a compact crossover that will fit in under the new F-Pace (seen above).

The new baby F-Pace, possibly called the E-Pace, will be even smaller then the Range Rover Evoque, and should arrive by 2020. The small E-Pace along with a large SUV and a crossover coupe are all in the plans at JLR, which is working to bolster sales by adding to its crossover and SUV lineup.
JLR says that the agreement includes 50 “new product actions” in the coming five years, though the brand isn’t taking anything away from its UK-based manufacturing. “The UK remains at the centre of our design, engineering and manufacturing capabilities. Partnerships such as this will complement our UK operations and engineering,” said Dr Ralf Speth, JLR CEO.
