Meanwhile in America, we don't really care!
According to Jaguar's design chief Ian Callum, the brand may cease offering wagon variants of its sedan models. "The [wagon] market is massively shrinking. I'm very sad about it but it's a very difficult market to justify," Callum told Automotive News Europe. Europe was the only big market left for the wagon as demand has strongly shifted to SUVs and crossovers in the United States. Callum says the "the world's biggest wagon market is Germany. And what do Germans buy? They buy German cars."
The second biggest market, Britain, has seen dwindling demand for wagons as well. Wagon accounted for around 30% of the large luxury market in Europe, but SUVs have global appeal. Jaguar expects the new F-Pace SUV to be the brand's best selling car ever, beating out the X-Type and XJ. Jaguar may even be planning a smaller SUV called the E-Pace to sit below the F-Pace. It may be sad that Jaguar won't be making beautiful wagons like the XFR-S Sportbrake anymore. However, after seeing how amazing the F-Pace is, should we really care? We never even got the Jaguar wagons in the US anyway, so why should we miss them?
