The Jaguar XE Sportbrake has been speculatively rendered prior to a probable official introduction in the second half of the year.

Shortly after the Jaguar XE Sedan came out in October 2014 at the Paris Motor Show we heard the car's program director Nick Miller the company is considering a plethora of derivatives, including a wagon which will likely get the Sportbrake moniker. The longer overhang will likely boost the XE's cargo capacity from the sedan's 455 liters to around 500 liters while the styling will likely have a lot in common with the attached render.

Aside from launching a Sportbrake version, Jaguar is also thinking about turning the XE into a convertible and a coupe while a long wheelbase sedan is also being considered. Jaguar has already downplayed the possibility of coming out with a "four-door coupe", but did say all-wheel drive and V8-powered variants are being analyzed.
