Jaguar has reported their biggest loss ever, totaling roughly £3.4 billion from the last quarter of 2018. This marks the third consecutive quarterly loss for the automaker, which they are attributing to slower sales in China and weakening demand for diesels throughout Europe. The only models in their lineup that have seen increased sales are the I-Pace, E-Pace, Range Rover, and Range Rover Sport. https://carbuzz.com/news/jaguar-land-rover-faces-huge-financial-loss

I heard they're planning to reduce the current sedan lineup to just one, unfortunate but crossovers are what consumers want.

The shift away from diesel is something they should have been planning on for years. With China serving as the hub for all new EV's, that's going to be the new big market there.

PHEV's and other hybrid types are just preparing to go into full swing with EV's set to take its current place.
Never realized before but even pick up truck makers are planning to launch Hybrids and its a segment that'll face the most resistance.

The 2019 Range Rover Sport is getting a mild hybrid system and that could preview what will come to future Jaguar models. They are replacing the supercharged V6 with a hybrid turbocharged inline six. The new configuration raises the price between $1100 and $2050 over the 2018 models.
