The wait to have the best Jaguar SUV has been long, really long that buyers almost lost their hope but the automobile brand had surprised them with multiple launches.
The E-Pace SUV was launched today in a style that wowed the entire world because they also set a new world record with it.
The big SUV F-Pace was launched one year ago and the next in the lineup is the Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV concept. Even though, it is yet to enter production phase, the concept was very promising and allowed visitors at the Los Angeles auto show to get a good idea of the type of car to expect. The I-Pace will be available in showrooms in the first half of 2018. A surprise entry is the Jaguar E-Pace SUV which has been launched in style at a high profile event. The car is priced at £28,500 in the United Kingdom.
For the first time in history, the newly launched car ushers in a lot of unique new changes including the fact that it is being produced at a plant located in Grant, Austria. Jaguar follows a tradition of manufacturing their vehicles in the country they are sold and it is usually carried out in UK but this time a new location has been chosen for undisclosed reasons. The car features a front wheel drive setup which is another first time since the time of the X-Type.
The designers have ensured that the overall design of the vehicle is unique yet familiar so that people relate it with the baby version of the F-Pace. They are going for a completely innovative design language and within the team, it is known as the cub. The team seems to have taken this claim seriously because you can actually spot a graphic image of a large Jaguar being followed by its small cub on the windscreen. “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.
In the front fascia, the newly launched E-Pace SUV sports a bold, large grille giving it a boxy look combined with a row of LED front lights. The designer added that they were aiming to achieve a more practical finish for the new SUV rather than make it sporty which might alienate a lot of buyers. Callum says the team has achieved the right balance between performance and usability. The overall size of the newly launched Jaguar E-Pace is 4.4 meters long bringing it on par with the Audi Q3 model.
