After throwing itself over a selection of facelifted models in 2021, Britain’s leaping cat luxury brand will take a break in 2022 – and possibly until the middle of the decade.
While brands like Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen have detailed expansive model rollouts for 2022, Jaguar has not yet confirmed any new model launch for 2022 (from the release).
In fact, according to a report from French publication The world at the end of November 2021, Jaguar will not launch any new models until 2025, when its new range of all-electric vehicles arrives, ready to run on a dedicated battery-electric platform and focus on Bentley and Aston Martin (instead for BMW, Volvo or Audi).
But the report merely refers to “new models”, suggesting that further updates or facelifts may be on the way for Jaguar’s existing portfolio, which will be one of the oldest in the industry by the middle of the decade – led by the XE sedan , launched in 2015.
Rumors suggest that an updated I-Pace may be on its way to the 2023 model year, following patent photos released in late 2020 – though such a model has not yet been confirmed.
The sister brand Land Rover will experience 2022 becoming more eventful, led by the launch of the all-new Range Rover luxury SUV in June – with additional variants to follow before the end of the year – and the unveiling of the new generation Range Rover Sport, expected at the end of 2022 for model year 2023.
In 2021, Jaguar launched facelifted versions of almost all of its models – the XE, XF, F-Pace and E-Pace – followed by a new P450 version of its F-Type sports car, replacing the existing four-cylinder and V6 engines.
