E-PACE ACHIEVES 5-STAR ANCAP SAFETY RATING

All variants of the new Jaguar E-PACE have achieved an industry-recognised 5 star ANCAP safety rating.

Jaguar’s first compact SUV has been tested to provide the highest standard of safety, with high scores of 86% for adult occupant protection, 87% for child occupant protection and 77% for pedestrian protection.

The E-PACE performed well in the side and frontal test for both adult and child occupants. In the pedestrian tests, E-PACE scored highly, particularly for the protection of a pedestrian’s head in the event of a collision.

The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) is Australasia’s leading independent vehicle safety advocate. ANCAP recommends 5 star rated cars.

“The Jaguar E-PACE scored well across all assessment areas and features a ‘pop-up’ bonnet and external airbag to improve head protection for struck pedestrians,” said ANCAP Chief Executive, Mr James Goodwin.

E-PACE features a comprehensive suite of standard safety systems, including Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. The advanced technology is able to detect a collision risk with cars or pedestrians in the road ahead and automatically apply the brakes.

In safety assist tests, E-PACE performed well with a score of 72%. The Autonomous Emergency Braking system demonstrated its high reliability when tested at highway speeds of 80km/h.

Jaguar Land Rover Australia Managing Director, Matthew Wiesner, said: “Safety is one of our core customer principles and so we’re thrilled that the Jaguar E-PACE has been recognised by ANCAP for its five-star safety credentials. The all-new Jaguar E-PACE compact SUV will bring many new customers to the Jaguar brand in Australia, particularly young families, so safety is an absolute priority.”

By pairing advanced crash protection with active safety systems, E-PACE helps prevent accidents while providing superior passenger safety in the event of a collision.

Advanced driver assistance systems available on the Jaguar E-PACE include:

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection: provides an audible forward collision warning and should the driver not take action, applies the brakes to help reduce the severity of a collision or prevent it
  • Matrix-Laser LED headlights: use Intelligent High Beam Assist (IHBA) and Adaptive Front Lighting (AFL) to split the main beam into imperceptible vertical strips that maximise the light around oncoming traffic while casting a shadow in front of oncoming vehicles to prevent dazzling
  • Lane Keep Assist: detects unintentional lane drift and applies corrective counter-steering to maintain lane position
  • Driver Condition Monitor: senses driver fatigue by monitoring steering, brake and accelerator inputs to provide alerts when tiredness is detected
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist: automatically reduces speed should the vehicle ahead slow down and, once the road ahead is clear, will resume its pre-set speed
  • Pedestrian Airbag: deploys an exterior airbag in the event of a collision to protect pedestrians and cyclists from contact with the bonnet and windscreen
  • Reverse Traffic Monitor: warns the driver of vehicles, pedestrians or other hazards approaching from either side of the vehicle, providing audio and visual alerts
  • Blind Spot Assist: alerts the driver to vehicles in, or fast approaching, the blind spot with a flashing warning light and will guide the car safely away if the vehicle begins to change lanes

WATCH JAGUAR LAUNCH THE I-PACE – LIVE VIEW FRIDAY

Jaguar will livestream the global premiere of its first electric vehicle (EV), the I-PACE, at 05:00 AEDT Friday 2nd March (19:00 CET on Thursday 1 March).

Thousands of prospective customers have already pressed the ‘I want one’ button to register their interest in the hotly anticipated electric performance SUV, and Jaguar is responding by throwing the doors to its live-reveal wide open by hosting an online broadcast on its social channels.

Full pricing and specifications will be announced and order books opened for full configurations immediately following the reveal.

The I-PACE is Jaguar’s newest member of the PACE family and is the EV drivers have been waiting for, delivering sustainable sports car performance, all-wheel-drive agility and five-seat SUV practicality.

Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, said:“Since revealing the I-PACE Concept in 2016, we have been counting down to this moment. The all-electric I-PACE is not only a pioneer within our business, it promises to revolutionise the industry. Never before have I been so excited for a launch – the world is watching with great anticipation and I cannot wait for the world to see everything we have achieved with this car.”

The I-PACE will be capable of rapid charging from zero to 80 per cent in 45 minutes* and has been rigorously tested across extremes of terrain and temperatures from -40°C to 40°C.

With over 1.5 million test miles and a further 11,000 hours of rig simulations completed by more than 200 production prototypes, Jaguar’s design and engineering teams have created a world-class all-electric SUV.

The official public debut of I-PACE will be at the Geneva Motor Show on 6 March.

JAGUAR MAGAZINE TOUR 2018 – JOIN US ON A ‘BUCKET LIST’ SPECIAL EVENT

A specialised Jaguar dream tour, hosted by our editor, is about to happen.  It will take in everything Jaguar and fun-wise that we can fit into three weeks in Europe and Britain.

From August 21 this year until September 11 we will be hosting our seventh Jaguar Magazine Tour to Europe.  With a limit of just 44 people, we have several places still open.

 

We have made it as reasonably priced as possible, while maintaining good hotels and meals etc., and include airfares, accommodation, entry to most venues and events, all breakfasts, selected main meals, coach travel, transfers including train from Paris to London using the ‘Chunnel’ and a night out in Paris etc.

It is not just for the ‘boys’ and the ladies are catered for.

Will take in exciting places including the Porsche and Mercedes-Benz Museums, champagne cellars in Reims, touring the famous abandoned racing track just out of Reims where countless French GPs were held and where Jaguar scored victories with their C and D-Types.

We will enjoy days of leisure in Paris, before a rail adventure to London where the enormously prestigious Royal Automobile Club (RAC) in Pall Mall will host our group (this is a massive privilege), we will take in the fabulous and spectacular Concours d’Elegance at King Henry VIII’s historic Hampton Court Palace, and tour the Williams F1 team HQ who also prepare Panasonic Jaguar’s Formula E team.

From there we head up to the Midlands, home of Britain’s car industry and home to Jaguar Cars since 1927.

Over three days we will inspect the main Jaguar assembly plant at Castle Bromwich on the outskirts of Birmingham, and tour the new Jaguar Classic Jaguar and Land Rover base also in Coventry.

We will visit the Coventry Museum of Road Transport where many famous factory Jaguars and Daimlers are displayed, and also the British Heritage Motor Museum at Gaydon where the majority of Jaguar’s Heritage Collection cars are stored and displayed.

We also have a number of surprises planned, and the chance for a night out in Stratford-On-Avon with all that offers, including a tour of Shakespeare’s birthplace.

 

From there we go to the world’s first permanent motor racing circuit, the evocative Brooklands, home of aviation and motor racing pre-WW2.

Then there are three days of the world-renowned Goodwood Festival of Speed with all sorts of options.  We will be based in Southampton while there, and that is close to the renowned Beaulieu Place and Motor Museum in the New Forest.

LISTER STORM CONCEPT – WITH 8 LITRE V12 JAGUAR ENGINE!!!

The Lister Motor Company was revived back in 2014, and since then the British company’s boss, Lawrence Whittaker, has made no secret of his desire to see the company produce a hypercar capable of taking on the likes of McLaren, Pagani and Koenigsegg. It now appears those plans may finally be coming to fruition after the automaker’s CEO revealed a sketch of a sleek two-door sports car, accompanied on social media by the words: “A glimpse into the future of Lister… the Storm II.”

Lister resumed vehicle production in the last few years with a track-only recreation of its most iconic creation, the Lister Jaguar “Knobbly” D-Type. That was followed by the Thunder, which is a road-legal 208mph sports car based on the current Jaguar F-Type. Both of those models attracted strong early interest, and that seems to have bolstered the company’s confidence about what it can achieve in the future.

 UK motoring publication Autocar has reported in the past about the willingness and eagerness of the company’s CEO to develop the company’s own all-new Lister model. Lister has already looked for investors to help with the development of such a car, which it’s believed could utilise a Jaguar-derived 7.8-litre V12 engine producing somewhere in the region of 1,000 bhp.

The original Storm was in production during the mid-1990s by a previous incarnation of the Lister Motor Company. Under the bonnet of that one was a 7.0-litre V-12 Jaguar engine that meant it was regarded at the time as the fastest four-seat GT available.

To be considered in the same class as the models Lister wants to rival with the new car, the Storm II would need to deliver a zero-to-60mph time of less than three seconds, and a top speed heading towards the 250mph mark. Both road-going and track-only variants would be offered, although production of both is likely to be extremely limited, to say the least. That could mean as few as six cars produced each year by the company, although that’s probably only to be expected as prices are likely to be in the region of £2 million each.

PANASONIC JAGUAR – SEASON MOVES TO MEXICO

Panasonic Jaguar Racing are ready to continue their fight for points in the fifth E-Prix of the 2017/18 ABB FIA Formula E Championship in Mexico City.

The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez Circuit is 2,500m above sea level placing greater physical exertion on the drivers and provides a new environment to test the key components of the Jaguar I-TYPE 2. Panasonic Jaguar Racing have shown significant improvement this season and hope to follow-up on their double point-scoring finish in the previous round in Santiago.

Last season Mitch Evans took fourth place in a dramatic Mexico City E-Prix – the Jaguar team’s best result of season three. This season at least one driver has consistently finished in the points and the British team have risen to fourth in the team standings. The team are hopeful that they can deliver another points finish at the only permanent racetrack in the series.

Mitch Evans, #20: “Mexico last year was a fantastic moment for the team. It was the first and only race both drivers finished in the points. So far this season we have made huge improvements on our race strategy and the Jaguar I-TYPE 2 has proved it is a fast race car. Santiago was one of my best performances in Formula E to start in last place and finish seventh was amazing. I’m hoping we can build on that in Mexico City and bring home more points.”

Nelson Piquet Jr, #3:In the last four races we’ve been consistently scoring points on a variety of tracks, both traditional street circuits like in Santiago and semi-street like Marrakesh, so we are hoping we will perform just as well on the traditional circuit in Mexico. Our Jaguar racecars have speed and with every race we get closer and closer to the front of the field. We will push again in Mexico and keep learning and improving as we compete for vital championship points.”

Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s continued success on track has run in parallel with the development of the all new Jaguar I-PACE, Jaguar’s first all-electric performance SUV, which will be launched on 1 March while the race team are in Mexico City.

James Barclay, Team Director, Panasonic Jaguar Racing: “The launch of the new Jaguar I-PACE is a very exciting moment for Jaguar Land Rover and a proud time for our race team. Jaguar joined Formula E as the first premium manufacturer to accelerate our learnings and develop innovative technologies faster and more efficiently than ever before. Electric street racing solidifies our Race to Innovate mission, and marks a new chapter in our move towards electrification. Mexico City was our best race in our first season and we look forward to another strong performance from the team.”
