Jaguar Land Rover has filed a trademark for a new nameplate in the US and Europe. The new "EV-Type" trademark likely signals a brand new model for Jaguar.

There isn't much information on the details of the new car, but the "type" suffix means that it will likely be a new Jaguar model. With the name and the recent trend of alternative fuel sports cars, this new model could very well be hybrid-electric sports car. This EV sports car could help JLR meet CAFE regulations.

Jaguar hasn't said anything official about a hybrid version of the F-Type yet. In LA Jaguar will debut an AWD version of the F-Type that also has a manual transmission option.

I knew this was coming, either that we'd see a vehicle from jag get EV power or see something built as only an EV. Good move on their part, now to figure out what exactly it could be.

Do you think it will look much different from the F-Type? I could see it having really minor differences from the F-Type, but I don't think it is going to be a totally different vehicle.

This article basically stopped at saying it will be sports car so for all we know it could be an XE coupe or what I believe a lot of us including myself would want to see which is an F-Type EV, preferably the coupe version.

An electric F-Type would be awesome. I'm just sad because I won't be able to afford that. I'm sure it will cost an arm and a leg.
