The f-pace is already in the wild, a nice CUV/SUV platform with an ICE in it. Then they introduced the i-pace concept which is all electric. Now they introduce the E-pace which is a compact CUV with an icer. Talk about confusing branding.

The E/F PACE are current gassers, the I PACE is still listed under concepts on Jaguar's site. My guess is E was already in the pipeline.

I do like the looks of their CUVs, might go a long way reinventing Jag.

Confusing for all the people who don't know or think Jaguar and might assume E for electric. But they had the E Type a long time again. The I-Type was their electric concept.

No, I-type is their formula E race car. I-pace is their ev concept car.

I'm keeping my eye on the Volvo XC90. If they could get it's all electric range above 50 miles I'd be tempted to sell both my 2017 GMC Acadia and Volt and could easily live with that ONE vehicle.

But for the price of the XC90, just a little more and you could get a model X. But I much prefer the Volvo over the X, but for silly reasons. The model X scares me with all that glass above the driver and passenger, then the falcon wing doors which are poised to let all sorts of snow into the cabin area after a heavy snowstorm.

The next 5 years will be interesting. I've had my volt for 4 years and really, not much has changed. Still waiting for this onstaught of electrified vehicles.

Maybe it's their "internet" car. :)

I think it's OK naming. The Germans and now Cadillac have gone with letters and numbers. It does make is simpler. This is a riff in that the last four letters gives you the body style. Granted you have to know what the beginning letter stands for, which is not ideal, but the convention isn't devoid of reason or impossible to follow.

I can see the attraction of getting rid of a vehicle. Perhaps the Cadillac XT4 will be large enough? The electric range should be low 30s. Supposedly it's not that much smaller than the XT5.

Nothing confusing about it. It's pretty straightforward to me.
