The F-pace crossover raised the popularity of Jaguar crossovers. Now, the company is already developing an all-electric I-Pace. Also, the carmaker is ready to hit the showrooms with 2019 Jaguar E-Pace. This would be the smallest SUV in the family. Versatility, fuel economy, comfort… are just a few advantages we expect from a new arrival.
The Jaguar E-Pace is a compact five-seater crossover with glorious design and performance. This model is going to be a combination of a sporty and spacious vehicle, with all-wheel drive configuration. First of all, the design is almost copied from a larger brother, the F-Pace SUV. But that’s not all since Jaguar also picked up all the good things from vehicles in other classes. The British company really created something special with E-Pace.
2019 Jaguar E-Pace Interior and Exterior
The interior is adapted to the driver and its needs. With a spacious cabin, the 2019 Jaguar E-Pace becomes a real car for daily enjoy and in an occasional escape into the wild. The crossover is based on the D8 platform, used already by Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport.
The vehicle is 65 inches high, 173 inches long and 82 inches wide. The wheelbase is 106 inches, while the ground clearance is 8 inches. Although it uses a lot of aluminum and carbon fiber, the vehicle is not so light. E-Pace has the technology to configure the driving dynamics through the control settings, the gas response and the operation of the gearbox. The Active Driveline system and torque vectoring contribute to good driving performance.
The outer design of the E-Pace model represents a blend of the sporty look and convenience of an SUV. The result of this combination is the four-wheel drive crossover that should attract new customers, and therefore boost competition in the segment of compact SUV models. Short body parts in front of and behind the rear axle have made wheels look like they are on every corner of the car. Also, tear-shaped LEDs from the F-Type give a more aggressive look for 2019 Jaguar E-Pace.
2019 Jaguar E-Pace Specs
Buyers will be able to choose between diesel engines of 150, 180 and 240 horsepower. Also, one of the options is a turbocharged petrol unit with an output of 250 and 300 horsepower. The fastest model accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 5.9 seconds. For now, there is no indication of any form of electrification of this model. If fans are looking for a hybrid, then I-Pace would be the good solution.
The technology includes state-of-the-art driver assistive devices. There are features such as a blind spot monitoring system, traffic monitoring, adjustable light beams, parking assist, and many more.
2019 Jaguar E-Pace Expectations
The 2019 Jaguar E-Pace is one of those vehicles that have great chances to achieve success. If we take the fact that Jaguar, despite the success, kept the prices, we can conclude that E-Pace can become the property of ordinary people.
Still, it will not be easy for Jaguar E-Pace to conquer the entire segment. Competition in the compact crossover class is tough. Almost all manufacturers have representatives, so it remains to see how 2019 E-Pace will fit in.
