Jaguar entered the compact crossover and sedan segments last year to build volume and bring in conquests.
The newcomers -- the F-Pace crossover and XE sedan -- are expected to drive Jaguar's sales in 2017, a year when no major launches are expected.
The production version of the I-Pace electric crossover will be unveiled this year, and sales will begin in 2018. The I-Pace uses Jaguar's new electric platform, which the company says can be easily adopted by a broad range of vehicles. The U.S. will be the biggest market for the I-Pace and is expected to account for about half of global sales.
Jaguar previewed the EV with the I-Pace Concept shown in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The I-Pace, a coupelike crossover, is the second of what could be a growing range of Jaguar crossovers. The models are being designed with more of an on-road vs. off-road feel so they don't compete with sister brand Land Rover.
The F-Type sports car likely will be freshened this year, but not in time for the Detroit auto show, where Jaguar and Land Rover will be absent.
