“Q1” from Jaguar in Cyprus
It has been reported that Jaguar is in the process of producing an SUV family in addition to their F-Pace cars which are available in Cyprus as well as other countries in the world.
Jaguar started the production of small SUVs instead of developing smaller cars because they believed that individuals in Cyprus would prefer smaller SUVs to smaller sedan cars. It is in line with these reports that Jaguar would produce a small model SUV which will look very similar to the Audi Q1. This claim was also reported by Autocar.
For those not familiar with the Audi Q1, the Audi Q1 is a new brand of mini SUVs which would be available commercially in 2016. The Audi Q1 has a dimension of 4,250 mm X 1,900 mm X1, 500 mm. It is also reported to have a 2,550 mm wheelbase.
The CEO of Audi, Rupert Stadler, believed that the Audi Q1 would appeal to a number of new customers as well as owners of Audi A1 who might want to upgrade. He further stated that over 70 per cent of the buyers of Audi A1 were women. Audi is thus, hoping that the Audi Q1 would attract a lot of male buyers too.
The reason why Jaguar is delving into smaller SUVs is because they believe that car users prefer a car with good premium quality that is not too big. This is the motivation for the creation of the smaller SUV family. They thus believe that the smaller SUVs would rake in a lot of customers and profit for their company.
Other contradicting reports have also surfaced which have stated that Jaguar would no longer be building the small SUV cars but would be developing SUVs which would consist of three rows and would be bigger than F-Pace. The motor producer based in Britain was said to be concentrating on sporty family cars as reported by this contradictory reports.
Normally, the division of the company on Special Vehicle Operations has been stated to have started preparing packages with high performance which will bear the SVR and R badges. An SUV which runs on electricity alone is also being produced to compete directly with Tesla Model X.
There were initial reports that 2 of the smaller SUVs would be available in commercial quantity before the year 2020. These smaller SUVs would be perfect for Cyprus city roads including Paphos, Nicosia and Larnaca.
Let’s see when the models arrive finally to Cyprus.
