"The C-X17 sports crossover represents an exciting new direction for Jaguar,” said Jaguar director Adrian Hallmark. “Its purpose is to highlight our all-new aluminum architecture. With this technical foundation, we will dramatically expand Jaguar's product offering, market potential and customer appeal. This new philosophy will bring technology from our top-of-the-range products into new growing premium segments, and when combined with our new ultra-efficient engines, we will set a global standard. Add to these rational values, the class-leading dynamics, and the beauty and purity of form that Jaguar is renowned for, and we have the formula for a monumental leap forward."
Expect the first new member of Jaguar's growing family to reach European showrooms in 2015, before arriving in North America in 2016.
