Jaguar E-Pace promises to be one of the most successful models in the brands’ lineup
There are so many different crossovers these days and the Jaguar E-Pace is the new face out there. It is basically a compact SUV with aggressive styling. The E-Pace focuses not so much on practicality but rather on being yet another fashion instrument for rich people.
The tech behind
The Jaguar E-Pace is a compact sport utility vehicle (compact SUV) produced by the British car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover (JLR). It was officially revealed on 13 July 2017.
The car is built in Graz, Austria, by Magna Steyr and from 2018 is also scheduled to be built by Chery Jaguar Land Rover, JLR’s joint venture with partner Chery, in Changshu, China.
Designed under the direction of Jaguar chief designer Ian Callum, the car is based on a modified version of the JLR D8 platform as used by the Range Rover Evoque and the Land Rover Discovery Sport.
The car dimensions are: length 4,411 mm (173.7 in), width (mirrors folded) 1,984 mm (78.1 in), width (mirrors unfolded) 2,088 mm (82.2 in), height 1,649 mm (64.9 in) and wheelbase 2,681 mm (105.6 in).
Jaguar E-Pace has a transverse front engine and is available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions.
