Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is set to roll out a new naming structure for its model portfolio, using the numbered format first seen with the new Range Rover Velar.

Reported by the UK's Evo, a reader of the British publication noticed a new Jaguar F-Type wearing a 'P380' badge on its rump - signifying the amount of metric horsepower (PS) the engine makes, as the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 of that particular F-Type develops 380PS (280kW).

Meanwhile, the letter that precedes the number, a 'P' in this case, refers to the type of engine used - a petrol unit. On the recently-launched Range Rover Velar range, there's a combination of 'P'-branded petrol engines and 'D'-named turbo-diesel engines.

According to Evo, the upcoming Jaguar I-Pace is expected to wear the 'E400' name, as its all-electric powertrain pumps out 400PS (294kW).

However, it's unknown what letter will denote plug-in hybrid variants, with the current Range Rover and Range Rover Sport PHEVs wearing 'HEV' badges (hybrid electric vehicle).

It's expected the changes will be implemented gradually from next year.
