Jaguar unveils E-Pace
Digital connectivity can be found throughout the cabin, ready for every need of the modern family. There are up to four 12-volt charging points and five USB connections as well as a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices.
The E-Pace has exceptional interior space for a vehicle in this class. The compact SUV is 4,395mm long with short front and rear overhangs of 882mm and 832mm respectively. Its 2,681mm wheelbase seats five in comfort and yields a generous rear legroom of 892mm while the large luggage capacity of 577 litres is made possible by the car’s sophisticated Integral Link rear suspension.
Standard wheel and tyresize is 17-inch wheels with 225/65 R17 tyres.
New chassis hardware developed for the E-Pace maximises interior space while also providing the strong foundations for the vehicle’s impressive all-surface dynamic capabilities. The Integral Link rear suspension layout has allowed Jaguar’s engineers to deliver the responsiveness and agility required without compromising ride comfort.
Configurable Dynamics gives the driver even more control with individual settings for the throttle, automatic transmission, steering and, where fitted, the Adaptive Dynamics suspension system. The Adaptive Dynamics set-up senses driver input, body and wheel movements and pre-emptively loads the suspension and chassis and adjusts the damping for improved roll control and agility in all conditions. As a result, the E-Pace delivers all the space young families need with all the character of a true Jaguar sports car.
Under the bonnet, E-Pace features a choice of efficient yet powerful Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. The 300PS Ingenium petrol turbo engine powers E-Pace from 0-60mph in just 5.9 seconds before reaching an electronically-limited top speed of 151mph. For customers who want the ultimate efficiency, the front-wheel drive 150PS Ingenium diesel delivers CO 2 emissions of 124g/km.
Petrol 200PS engine added to E-Pace line-up
The E-Pace is now available with Jaguar Land Rover’s 200PS 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbocharged Ingenium petrol engine for the first time, priced from £33,260.
The 200PS model does 0-60mph in 7.7 seconds, delivering official fuel economy of 34.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 186 g/km.
The E-Pace also now features Jaguar’s self-learning technology, Smart Settings. This learns the driver’s habits and anticipates their needs to make their life easier.
The Jaguar E-Pace recognises the approaching driver, based on both a key fob and smartphone Bluetooth signal. The vehicle will then adjust the seat, climate and infotainment system based on the driver’s normal preference.
Over time, algorithms tailor settings based on time, location, weather and behaviour patterns – for example, pre-heating the steering wheel and seats on a cold day, or changing the media source on a particular day of the week or time of day. Up to eight profiles can be set up on the Jaguar E-PACE, making it a worthwhile offering for fleets users and those who share their vehicle.
The Intelligent Phone Reminder function will also tell the driver if they forget their smartphone, while the Predictive Call List learns patterns of phone use to cue up popular contacts at the appropriate time.
