Jaguar Will Cease Constructing Its Fuel-Powered Vehicles in June in Preparation for Its 2025 Electrical Revamp

Jaguar is going SUV-only. At least for a little bit.

The storied British marque will stop building cars in the coming months in preparation for its all-electric revamp, according to Autocar. The company will continue to build its current crop of crossovers and SUVs through the end of the year.

The automaker currently builds three cars, including its one sports car, the F-Type, and two saloons, the XE and XF (the XE hasn’t been sold in the U.S. since 2020). All three models, which each come with traditional gas-powered engines, will cease to be built at the automaker’s Castle Bromwich factory this June, according to the publication. The XF and F-Type can still be ordered as of today in the U.S., but are reportedly only being built to set specifications. That means that customers will be limited in the ways they can customize the models.

Jaguar’s current generation of cars may be heading for retirement, but their SUV counterparts still have a little more life in them. The company plans to continue building the E-Pace, F-Pace, and its first all-electric model, the I-Pace, through the end of 2024. While production of all six vehicles is winding down, Joe Eberhardt, parent company JLR’s North American president and CEO, told the publication there will be enough stock available to last until its next waves of EVs are ready to hit the market in Europe and the U.S.

“We’re trying to time it so we have enough volume to take us through to the launch of the new product and have a clean handover,” the executive said. “Whether it will be as perfectly planned as that, we’ll see—maybe we’ll sell out more quickly, or maybe it will take a little longer to sell through the current inventory.“

Representatives for Jaguar did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Robb Report.

Next year will see the debut of an new all-electric Jaguar. The first vehicle of the is expected to be a battery-powered grand tourer with over 575 hp and a 400-plus-mile range. It will be followed in 2026 by an SUV and a saloon that will both fall firmly in the luxury category, according to Autocar. Little is known about the trio of battery-powered vehicles except that they will be built on the Jaguar’s new JEA electric platform and be completely different from the I-Pace and other current models.
