The game is changing and at an accelerating rate. Firstly JLR now sell more vehicles in China than in North America. Y'all can keep buying those big V8 trucks, but for highly urbanised, congested cities full ICEs will soon be legislated out of the centre of town. It's already happening with older diesels.
Many, if not even most of the luxury executive class of cars (S-class, 7 series, A8, XJ, Range Rover etc) spend their working lives in these city environments, driving maybe 50 miles per day, tops.
Jaguar aren't looking to outsell the S, just grab a lucrative share of the market with a niche product.

again, you make no sense.

Car ownership is changing, from where we are now, to Transportation-as-a-Service. Some places will still require you own your own car, but for those of us in an urban setting, ownership is a burden. Why buy a cow when you can get milk delivered to your door?
Manufacturers are aware of this and are planning for it. What we are starting to see now are milestones along that road.

No. You're just incapable of comprehending sarcasm. Your response is typical of people who feel frustration that they don't get the joke; they lash out.
