Bollore previously admitted a fully electric sports car, such as an F-Type successor, is also not a high priority. The brand’s only current EV, the I-Pace, has not been a strong seller. Dealers are now wondering what will be left to sell without a robust SUV lineup. The next-generation all-electric XJ sedan has been canceled and the XE is no longer sold stateside, leaving just the XF.
A couple of dealers who spoke on condition of anonymity following Bollore’s presentation came away with very different predictions about what’s in store. One thinks Jaguar is finished while the second believes it’ll thrive with EVs, especially with Gerry McGovern in charge of the brand. McGovern leads JLR’s UK design studio with decades of industry experience.
