IT’S THE ‘PACE FAMILY’ – INCLUDING E-PACE – OFFICIALLY

jaguar

There is no guessing what the forthcoming E-Pace looks like – because here it is in an official image from Jaguar – included with F-Pace and I-Pace.

Very few expected the E-Pace to be revealed this soon, but with the I-Pace also due next year Jaguar has a family of SUV ‘Pace’ vehicles soon arriving in its worldwide Jaguar Land Rover showrooms.

We are impressed how quickly Jaguar and Land Rover is expanding its range of vehicles, and also the speed with which they are developed ready for sale.

Exciting times.

WHATCAR? REVEALS THE FULL E-PACE AND DETAILS

3210d5698340aaae2cf49e323993686e39f33dea

Jaguar may have been very late to enter the SUV market, but its first effort, the F-Pace, has since been responsible for more than half of all the brand’s sales. It’s hardly surprising, then, that it is now planning a further three SUVs, starting with the smaller Jaguar E-Pace.

This new model will be unveiled in London on 13 July, but ahead of that, Jaguar has released a teaser image that reveals the design of the car’s rear lights. They closely resemble those of the electric Jaguar I-Pace concept, which was shown at the 2016 Los Angeles motor show.

The E-Pace will cost from about £28,500 (under AUD$50,000 and US$32,000) when it goes on sale later this year, meaning it will go head-to-head with the likes of the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA.

That entry price will buy you a front-wheel drive car with a six-speed manual gearbox, but most versions of the E-Pace are likely to have four-wheel drive and an eight-speed auto ‘box. Power, meanwhile, will come from a range of turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines already found in other Jaguars.

Under the skin, the E-Pace is closely related to sister brand Land Rover’s Discovery Sport – a former What Car? Award winner. However, Jaguar is promising that the E-Pace will combine everyday SUV practicality with ‘sports car design and agility’, which suggests it will have sharper handling than the Land Rover.

IT’S THE NEW E-PACE – DEBUT NEXT MONTH

jaguar

Jaguar introduces its new compact performance SUV, the Jaguar E-PACE.

Joining Jaguar’s PACE family of performance SUVs, the E-PACE follows on from the successful F-PACE, which helped boost Jaguar’s sales by 83 per cent last year, and the all-electric I-PACE Concept which will go into production in 2018.

Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar, said: “The combination of sports car looks with Jaguar performance will ensure that the E-PACE stands out. Every Jaguar is designed to excite the senses, and we think E-PACE will do just that, albeit with its own individual character.”

The Jaguar E-PACE features sports car-derived AWD technology and an all-Ingenium line-up of petrol and diesel engines, as well as a suite of connected technology and safety features.

The compact performance SUV will be revealed to the world on 13 July.
