The E-Pace sits on JLR's LR-MS platform which now underpins the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque. The crossover and SUV space is the main point of growth in the auto industry right now, far more popular than the sedan and relative niche coupe and convertible spaces that Jaguar traditionally played in.
The E-Pace and F-Pace are expected to be joined by the all-electric I-Pace and a larger seven-seat SUV in coming years, and it seems likely both launches will be marked with a similar vehicular stunt.
He said the E-Pace may be a family's only vehicle and that it has been created to cater to those who value connectivity. The E-PACE S will be $41,500, while the E-PACE SE will be $44,300.
Jaguar Land Rover's full range of turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and diesel Ingenium engines will be offered in the E-Pace. And with all wheel drive on some models it can go off-road capably too, if you need it too. "We wanted everyone to know that this is related to the original F-Pace in many ways and it is not a bad thing afterall", comments lead designer Ian Callum.
The I-Pace, along with the F-Pace and E-Pace, seem to position the British brand on solid footing.
Customer order are now open in the United Kingdom and the E-Pace is priced from £28,500. Powered by the base 246-horsepower engine, the First Edition rides on 20-inch satin finish split-spoke alloy wheels. Unlike the F-Pace which is classified as a midsize, the E-Pace takes the proportions of a compact crossover that will go against the ranks of the Audi Q3, BMW X1, and the Mercedes GLA.
The Jaguar E-Pace will be available starting later this year. The least we can say is that it made quite a remarkable entrance! Jaguar promises that the Jaguar E-Pace will blend the driving dynamics from is sedan range but will offer the practicality of a small SUV. E-Pace rides on a modified version of the platform that underpins the Range Rover Evoque. Styled to look as much like an SUV version of the F-Type as possible, it more or less blows any and all other compact SUVs out of the water for looks. Jaguar has used the same Integral Link rear suspension design already seen in the F-Pace and Land Rover Discovery Sport, which liberates ridiculous boot space. The E-Pace will also be manufactured in China for the Chinese market at a later date.
The 8.42-litre centre console compartment can house four large water bottles, as well as configurable cupholders and trays; the lockable glovebox is 10-litres, while the front door bins are 10.56-litres with 8.26-litres in the rear. "The taillights will be a Jaguar signature", he said.
Jaguar reckons that worldwide, about 80 per cent of E-Pace customers will be new to the brand which will only add to the extraordinary success of the F-Pace, which was largely responsible for the brand lifting sales by a staggering 83 per cent in the last 12 months.
Despite the heavy weight, the Jaguar E-Pace is fairly good at keeping Carbon dioxide emissions low.
