Jaguar global brand director Steven de Ploey has announced the F-Pace will be officially unveiled at Frankfurt Motor Show set for September.

British marque is currently putting the finishing touches on their first ever crossover which will be commercialized starting next year with the much criticized "F-Pace" moniker. The model has already been caught on camera several times and Jaguar has also released a teaser pic to build up hype before the full reveal in Germany.

It will basically be a production version of the C-X17 concept introduced in September 2013 at the Frankfurt Motor Show and will have a lot in common with the XE and XF models from where it will inherit the iQ[Al] platform as well as the Ingenium four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines. Jaguar is likely cooking up an F-Pace S which will get a supercharged V6 3.0-liter engine pushing out 340 bhp (253 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) while a V8-powered range-topping SVR version is likely on the agenda as well with a supercharged V8 5.0-liter rated at 550 bhp (410 kW) and 502 lb-ft (680 Nm) like in the Range Rover Sport SVR.

There are also talks about a fully electric derivative set to join the lineup later on during the car's lifespan with a maximum range of around 300 miles (483 km). The electrified F-Type will allegedly be out for the 2018 model year and is expected to share the hardware setup with an unknown Range Rover-badged EV.
