PRODUCTION E-PACE FOR LA MOTOR SHOW – motor1.com

2018-jaguar-i-pace-render

The real deal will debut in just a few months.

While some concepts are just too outlandish to ever morph into production cars Jaguar decided to keep its I-Pace closer to reality for its debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. That’s why attempting to see into the future of the road-going model shouldn’t be that hard as the concept’s design was already feasible for a production car. Jag’s Design Chief, Ian Callum, even said the vehicle from L.A. had approximately 80 percent of the final look.

Recent spy shots have shown the road-going model will indeed echo the design of the showcar from the City of Angels, so this digital design exercise coming from our Italian colleagues at OmniAuto was an easy task to accomplish.

Jaguar will host the world premiere of the Tesla Model X-fighting I-Pace at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, but we might see it on the World Wide Web a few weeks sooner.

JAGUAR COULD USE HYBRID POWER IN SPORTS CARS – Autocrat

xj

Jaguar could use hybrid power trains in future sports cars, according to its chief product engineer, Jaguar sports cars, Erol Mustafa.

While he said there were no current plans to implement hybrid power to help with performance or emissions, Mustafa said he “wouldn’t rule out hybrid performance” in the future.

He added: “We always look at ways of improving the car but it’s got to be the right application for a sports car.”

However, with other models in the Jaguar range more focused on achieving good emissions figures, Mustafa said there was “no pressure on him” to implement a powertrain that wouldn’t suit the F-Type.

When asked about a possible diesel F-Type, as recently spied by Autocar, Mustafa said he could not comment.

Mustafa was talking at the reveal of the new entry-level F-Type at the New York motor show, which uses its 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium engine, already announced for the XE and XF saloons. While it is the cheapest F-Type on sale, Mustafa said it had its own character, differentiating it from the V8 and V6 models.

F-PACE AND OTHERS CLONED IN CHINA – Autocar

The Chinese motor industry have caused quite the stir with some of their copycat creations, so take a look at the best examples which were on stands at this year’s show.
This one’s a double whammy; not only does it halfheartedly ape the Jaguar F-Pace’s styling, but it’s got a fetching blue prancing horse badge up front.

 It’s hardly a surprise; the F-Pace is one of the suavest of SUVs, but the EV is more of a clumsy copycat.

TESTING THE NEWEST XJ-R AND 25 YEARS OF ‘R’

jaguar 1

Meet the bold and in your face newest XJ-R.  We picked it up with less than 300 kilometres on the clock, and will bring you our extensive report in the coming edition after putting it through its paces.  It is exciting though I can already promise.

jaguar 2

More than that though, we fittingly also commemorate 25 years of Jaguar’s R models, and stack the new supercharged V8 X351 alongside the first ever supercharged Jaguar, the X300 six cylinder classic for a comparison.

It’s all happening next.
