Jaguar XE selling well?

I have my doubts:
http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/new...rt-40-10400012

Land Rovers disco sport is doing the kind of volume is expect of Jaguar...

Hope this is nothing to worry about for Jaguar

The XE still hasn't reched all markets. the XF is being replaced with the gen 2 and the F-Pace comes out early 2016. What are you worrying about?

I wouldn't be too worried, JLR have spread the development cost risks over 3 cars, f-pace, xf and xe.

If the XE doesnt succeed then rover is always there, i'd quite like a Jag XE badged as a Rover 400
Iain and galley.r25 like this.

I've started seeing quite a few XEs now, they are hard to spot at first compared to the XF.

Sales of XE are well above target with the saloon hitting the numbers of all variants, once the next three models appear, sales will be way above initially targets.

No more XE body variants planned, just XE saloon, E Pace, XF saloon, F pace, XJ & F-Type, plus an electric SUV that nobody's talking about.

Annual XE/Epace, XF/Fpace sales need to top 400k before anything new is given the green light (including a replacement XF SB)

not sure where you got that from, but it is wrong, there is not going to be a sport brake XF, and never was, as the XE will have the estate, the Coupe and Cabrio are already on the drawing board near to completion (seen the design sketches of these and they look amazing), the E-Pace too is in final stages of design, along with New XJ, there will not be any further body styles on XF, and NO XJC.

There has been talk at Whitely about a LWB F-Pace, but they fear it will impact on Range Rover sales so are not actively pursuing this model.

An XE Estate is the only Jag I'd buy. Fingers crossed they do bring one out.

Including a convertible

I am seeing quite a few XE's in the Home Counties now though. Business must be picking up.

in the UK XE sales are poor, which is annoying as it SHOULD be selling more than the BMW 3 series as its the better car but we all know what the british public are like, German is best. But I think foreign markets they sell allot. the F pace I think will be a huge success, the catalyst for Jaguar cars...could spawn more Jaguar SUVs.

Not sure there will be more Jaguar SUVs, they are limited because they can't compete with Land Rover's range.

There's no harm in a little internal competition - just look a the VAG portfolio. A range of heavily road-biased Jaguar sports crossovers will enable Land Rover to maintain its more rugged stance and off-road bias.

Confirmed today by none other than Ian Callum, there is no XE Sportbrake planned, however it looks as though a new XF Sportbrake is back on the cards.

There's no XE Coupe or Cabrio either, I just haven't found anything in the public domain to post yet.

NO sport-brake at all - this has now been confirmed, cabrio and convertible are still on going evaluation, pictures are doing the rounds at the dealers, however, it is now confirmed that a whole host of previously planned models are now canned including the small SUV - which is stupid. and leaves Jaguar hanging in the balance. things change day by day, and who knows, tomorrow, everything might be back on plan, or they cancel the the entire refresh, either way, there are some serious cost cutting going on at JLR, and it seems like they are currently favouring Land Rover, as there has been no cuts there.

There are some serious big cars coming, a big Range Rover, and new small Rangie, Discovery 5 Discovery Sport XL, Evoque XL, at least five new Defender models and that does not cover and other models launched under SVR, they seems to have run out of steam with Jaguar, but there is so much more they could do and should do, a small Jag, new Smaller and larger SUV, we know that there is going to be an EV in bother saloon and SUV, i-Pace and i-Type and the XJ is going into an area it is not that familiar with, making it a technology filled tour de Force.

But, like i said, what happens today does not necessarily mean it is happing tomorrow, they are changing heir minds so often these days.

Jaguar needs to prove itself with the XE new XF and F-Pace as Land Rover is currently the cash generator for the group.

Still think a Rover range based on a longer wheelbase XE would sell. I wish JLR would bow to my Rover fantasies, a modern range like what was sporn of the 200/400 wedge range would make my year. and a small hatch for 200 replacement and then a XJ based crazy flagship. Oh and a sterling couple replacement on a stretched f-type.

I think slightly differently. Rover should be used for a smaller range of cars like BMW uses the Mini brand. I think Rover would be far more flexible in terms of growth as the model range expands. BMW is hampered by the fact that Mini is just thought of as small cars.

Rover is dead. It has a terminal image problem as an unreliable old mans car.
