If you look at the segment it seems the norm to offer a coupe derivative alongside the sedan. Consider 3/4 series, ATS sedan/Coupe, Lexus IS/RC, Audi A4/A5. The only notable missing is mercedes, and they may very well be planning a C coupe of the redesigned sedan...

So if Jag is looking to be serious in this segment should we expect to see an XE Coupe?

There will be a XEC, XECC and XESB, there IS a Mercedes C-Class Coupe, and a new one is undergoing testing now,
Coupe and Convertible you say... I suppose the F-Type is priced far enough out of range that cannibalization is not much of a concern? In all honesty its the sport back i lust for :D

XE coupe will be another good move if the sedan proves to be great, people will demand it and likely Jaguar will build it

A lot of models, a lot of great ways to use this platform, probably the only way to go about this and to really make it worth it and make the brand really expand

Logically I believe the XE HAS to be built int hose guises. Especially when you consider BMW offers 3 series in coupe and cabrio (4 series), and the aport back wagon, not to mention the fecking ugly as virtue GT model. Then Audi as well with the A4 Avant and the A5 coupe/cabrio...

I'll say it again XE Sport Back, yes I'll sign the dotted line :D:D

Sport Back XE will be epic but Jaguar needs to make the lines more sharper for that although they do come up with some great rounded body lines

I think that they will make an XE Coupe. Everybody else seems to be making cars like that, and I've been reading that coupe styled sedans sell better than regular sedans. SO all signs seem to point to yes.

Just can't wait to see more info, solid info on them making an XE coupe. Once that happens there will be a lot of hype around it, i can see people jumping on it like crazy.

XEC has already been agreed. along with XECC, XESB, CX-17 and one other yet to be confirmed model.
one unconfirmed within the XE range or one unconfirmed for the architecture.

If its unconfirmed for the XE range I'd say perhaps sedan coupe that is quixotic in my opinion. If its the architecture I thought there were rumours that XF would be migrating?
