Jaguar recently unveiled their aluminum monocoque iQ[Al] platform and new details are starting to emerge about the models that will use it.

The company has already confirmed the architecture will underpin their 2015 "mid-size premium" vehicle, but The Detroit Bureau spoke to Jaguar Vehicle Line Director Kevin Stride who said “We’re planning to use this architecture to span quite a range of products" in a "breadth of segments … and sizes."

Stride declined to go into specifics but confirmed the platform is highly flexible and can be used to support vehicles of different lengths, widths and heights. It can also handle rear- and all-wheel drive as well as electrical drive systems.

A production version of the C-X17 concept is virtually a given but speculation suggests the company could also use the architecture to underpin a BMW 1-Series / Mercedes A-Class competitor.

There's no word on when the additional models will be introduced but Stride hinted the company wants to  build "more great Jaguars quickly."
