Jaguar has introduced a series of updates for the E-PACE range, including a refreshed exterior, enhanced interior, the latest Pivi Pro infotainment, new vehicle architecture and a choice of engines that includes a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) powertrain.
The new P300e PHEV powertrain combines a 197 bhp 1.5-litre three-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine and a 108 bhp (80kW) Electric Rear Axle Drive (ERAD) motor. It provides the ability to drive up to 34 miles in zero emissions EV mode, with combined CO2 emissions of 44g/km and fuel economy up to 141mpg (2.0 l/100km) (WLTP TEH combined).
Inside, customers benefit from the latest Pivi Pro infotainment, which provides intuitive control of the vehicle systems with simplified menus and enhanced connectivity, including Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) updates.
Julian Thomson, Design Director, Jaguar said: “New E-PACE features key design elements from across the Jaguar family, enhancing the exterior and introducing beautiful new details to the interior. All this ensures the latest model has a more grown-up appeal while retaining its compact performance SUV sensibilities.”
Plug-in power and performance
An advanced 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine is the latest member of the modular, flexible Ingenium engine family, and is available in the E-PACE with PHEV technology.
The lightweight new aluminium engine – 33kg lighter than the four-cylinder – delivers strong performance and refinement with low levels of friction which contribute to excellent efficiency and fuel consumption. The exhaust manifold is integrated into the aluminium cylinder head, this contributes to the rapid warm-up times and minimises the distance from the exhaust ports to the turbocharger’s turbine wheel for improved responses.
The new P300e PHEV powertrain combines the 197 bhp 1.5-litre three-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine and a 108 bhp (80kW) Electric Rear Axle Drive (ERAD) motor. This delivers 0-60mph in 6.1seconds (0-100km/h in 6.5 seconds), CO2 emissions of 44g/km and fuel economy up to 141mpg (2.0 l/100km) (WLTP TEH combined).
The compact ERAD motor is powered by a 15kWh lithium-ion battery located under the boot floor. When fully charged it provides up to 34 miles of all-electric range, enabling the new E-PACE PHEV to complete the average UK daily commute, to and from work, of 18.8 miles in EV mode without requiring a recharge***.
Dirk Lorenz, Chief Product Engineer, Jaguar, said: “The new Jaguar E-PACE is available with a comprehensive choice of powertrains to suit any requirement while the new Premium Transverse Architecture ensures the exceptional performance, ride, handling and comfort expected from a Jaguar.”
