200 I-PACES FOR HEATHROW CHAUFFEUR WORK

Passengers flying to and from Heathrow Airport will have access to up to 200 Jaguar I-Pace chauffeur cars starting this summer, thanks to a new deal that’ll create the UK’s largest EV chauffeur fleet.

The deal between Jaguar and travel services company We Know Group will initially put 50 cars to work, with the option to add another 150 in the next 12 months.

Heathrow said the electric fleet would support up to 1000 journeys to and from its terminals per day, reducing the airport’s annual output of nitrogen oxide by eight tonnes.

The I-Pace is Jaguar’s first all-electric model. It uses a 90kWh lithium-ion battery that’s capable of up to 298 miles of range per charge, according to the latest WLTP cycle. The average chauffeur-driven car in Britain travels 114 miles per day.

Jaguar Land Rover UK boss Jeremy Hicks said the deal with We Know Group, which has long used Jaguars on its fleet, was an example of customers’ confidence in Jagaur’s first all-electric car.

“What we have created in the Jaguar I-Pace is utterly revolutionary; a desirable, luxurious and state-of-the-art electric vehicle that’s practical for genuine everyday use, including the tough life of an airport luxury chauffeur car,” he said.

TOP OF THE LINE E-PACE – OUR TEST

Today was a public holiday where we are, as it is in Britain.

So our Road Test Editor and former racer, Tristan Hughes, came face to face and up close to the HSE E-Pace modern classic Jaguar model.

It is brand new, and to be sure, not many of this model will be built.

It is smaller than the F-Pace, built in steel and shadows the F-Type in its sporting aspects – so what did Tristan think of it?

Well, I can tell you he drives his family in a similar sized Nissan Qashqai – so the comparison is direct and interesting!

JAGUAR LAND ROVER EXPANDS CLASSIC WORKS TO GERMANY

Jaguar Land Rover Classic has opened a brand-new Classic Centre in Essen, Germany – the first facility of its kind outside the UK. It’s directly operated by Jaguar Land Rover Classic, to provide factory-level service in Germany.

The new 4500 sq m Jaguar Land Rover Classic Centre Germany at Essen Kettwig is overseen by Dr Ralf Klasen, head of Jaguar Land Rover Classic Germany. It follows the same format as the Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works in Coventry, UK, which opened in June 2017, offering owners and enthusiasts a wide range of authentic Jaguar and Land Rover classic cars, services, parts and experiences.

Jaguar Land Rover Classic Director, Tim Hannig, said: ‘The opening of Classic Works in Coventry last year gave our team the opportunity to deliver world-class vehicle services to a rapidly-increasing number of enthusiasts.

‘As the most mature classic car market in Europe, Germany is the logical first step for the global expansion of Jaguar Land Rover Classic. This new site gives us an excellent platform to cater for the needs of classic Jaguar and Land Rover owners on the continent.’

Classic Works-inspired workshop facilities enable comprehensive vehicle health checks, servicing and repairs – including engine rebuilds. Secure storage for clients’ cars is also offered, including maintenance to ensure that the cars are always ready to drive.

Both the UK and German sites are also now offering pre-owned ‘Works Legends’ classic Jaguars and Land Rovers for sale, ranging from usable daily drivers to concours-standard show cars, or rare vehicles with unique historical significance. All have to pass a 125-point healthcheck and are sold with a manufacturer-backed 12-month warranty.

The company is also introducing a new online service to support the Works Legends cars for sale at www.jaguarlandroverclassic.com/workslegends.

F-PACE GETS UPGRADES – SVO SUPERCHARGED V8 INCLUDED

  • Five-star Euro NCAP-rated Jaguar F-PACE gains Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist
  • Touch Pro infotainment with 10-inch touchscreen now fitted as standard to Jaguar’s best-selling car
  • Enhanced cabin quality with optional new slimline sports seats, suedecloth headlining and illuminated treadplates
  • 404kW F-PACE SVR joins the 2019 model year line-up after debut at New York Auto Show
  • High performance SVR completes 0-100km/h sprint in just 4.3 seconds and features bespoke aerodynamic package, uprated brakes, SVR-tuned suspension and slimline sports seats

Jaguar has announced a series of improvements to its award-winning F-PACE performance SUV. The best-selling Jaguar delivers interior enhancements, the latest safety technology and additional consumer convenience features.

Joining the suite of driver assistance systems, Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist operates between 0-180km/h and uses the existing Adaptive Cruise Control functionality with Lane Centring to steer the vehicle within its lane as it maintains a set distance from the vehicle in front.

Other features include Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go that allows the driver to follow a vehicle to a smooth stop and resume from stationary when the driver prompts the system by tapping the accelerator pedal.

The radar-based High-Speed Emergency Braking enables enhanced forward collision detection. The system works between 10-160km/h and is able to detect an imminent collision, alerting the driver and applying the brakes if the driver fails to respond.

Inside the F-PACE, Jaguar’s Touch Pro infotainment with a 10-inch touchscreen is fitted as standard, while new optional slimline sports seats featuring 14-way adjustment, adjustable bolsters and slimmer seatbacks are available.

The attention to detail continues with the frameless rear view mirror, illuminated metal treadplates with Jaguar script, bright metal pedals, premium carpet mats, suedecloth headlining, chrome seat switches on the 10-way adjustable seats and carbon fibre door finishes.**

For enhanced customer convenience, petrol derivatives of the 2019 model year F-PACE benefit from a larger 82-litre fuel tank (up from 63-litres).

“The F-PACE has been critically acclaimed across the world and our performance SUV has more than 70 international awards to its name. We have updated our best-selling SUV with improved safety technology, additional convenience features and enhanced interior comfort. All of these changes deliver the experience our customers expect from a Jaguar.” Nick Collins, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar Land Rover

The F-PACE SVR made its debut at the New York International Auto Show and joins the F-PACE line-up for 2019 model year. The SVR features a 404kW, 680Nm 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine and is capable of 0-100km/h in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 283km/h.

Engineered by Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), the SVR features bespoke suspension, aerodynamic enhancements and new lightweight 21 and 22-inch alloy wheels to accommodate the uprated brakes. A Variable Valve Active Exhaust system ensures the supercharged V8 engine delivers a soundtrack to match its performance. Inside, the F-PACE SVR gets slimline sports seats featuring the SVR logo while the Sport Shift Selector underlines the SUV’s sports car character.
