Jaguar's rumored E-Pace smaller crossover has been digitally interpreted ahead of a possible launch prior to the end of the decade.

Jaguar's rumored E-Pace smaller crossover has been digitally interpreted ahead of a possible launch prior to the end of the decade.

The first ever crossover to wear the Jaguar badge is just about ready to be unveiled as the F-Pace will debut next month at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Word on the street says it will be joined by 2020 by two other models, a bigger J-Pace and this smaller E-Pace. The latter is expected to be made in Austria at a factory in Graz, following Jaguar's recently signed agreement with Magna Steyr. It is believed the larger Range Rover-based J-Pace will also come to life at the same assembly plant, but nothing if official at this point.

The E-Pace (name not confirmed) will apparently ride on the same D8 platform which has underpinned the Discovery Sport. Although initially the plan was to position it as a BMW X3 rival, Land Rover is apparently thinking of making it a competitor for the X1 in order to avoid cannibalizing sales of the next-gen Range Rover Evoque which will use the same platform.

As far as the design is concerned, don't be too surprised if it will look like a downsized F-Pace which in return will be an evolution of the very promising C-X17 concepts.
