Editor's note: The platform planned for the Jaguar E-Pace was misidentified in an earlier version of this story.
Jaguar confirmed late Tuesday that the E-Pace compact crossover will become the brand's second utility vehicle next year. A third crossover, the battery-powered I-Pace, will join Jaguar's lineup after the E-Pace, but also next year.
Porsche created the successful template for high-performance utility vehicles with the Cayenne and Macan. The F-Pace crossover, launched last year, has been one of the hottest-selling vehicles in Jaguar's history.
