Coming in early 2018: Jaguar E-Pace that is priced below $40,000

Article by Christian A., on June 24, 2017

The new Jaguar E-Pace crossover will soon hold its official launch on July 13 and is expected to arrive at the showrooms by early next year. It couldn’t have come at a better time since its larger version, the F-Pace already outsells the British manufacturer’s other models within its first year in the market. With a sticker price of only $38,600, the more compact E-Pace will surely help in maintaining Jaguar’s thrust in the crossover and SUV segment.

While what we have is a lone teaser image of the crossover, Jaguar at least stated that the E-Pace will be offered not only with an all-Ingenium range of petrol and diesel engines, but with the standard all-wheel drive set up as well. Also, there will be a long list of connected technology and convenient features to look forward to once Jaguar formally launches the E-Pace next month.

Though small, the E-Pace bears the leaping cat’s powerful performance and the looks of a sports car. Put them altogether and it will definitely stand out in a crowded segment just how the F-Pace has done so in the past several months. For 38,600 USD, the E-Pace is cheaper by 3,465 USD than its larger sibling which of course has more space to offer than its newest entry.

Notably, both the F-Type Sports car and the F-Pace nearly look the same on side view. The new model on the other hand seems to have been inspired by the same as we can see in the sole image they have provided. At the very least, it is likely to come with a sporty front bumper with a spoiler mounted at the tailgate.

Momentarily, the E-Pace’s complete list of specs features will be out within the next coming weeks. It won’t be too far ahead until we can see Jaguar’s new compact crossover in full view since more photos are sure to arrive after its premiere.

In related news, Jaguar’s all-electric crossover (I-Pace) will come into production sometime within next year. The new EV is the third in the British marque’s current utility vehicle lineup. According to Karl Freidrich Stracke, Magna Steyr’s head for technology and engineering, the I-Pace has faster acceleration than a Tesla after having had the chance to test drive the pre-production model very recently.

Stracke could be merely exaggerating the point here but assuming it is true, we can expect a vehicle that accelerates from zero to 60 miles per hour in less than 6 seconds. At any rate, the production model of the Jaguar I-Pace is slated to go on sale in the middle of next year. There are no prices yet but it is estimated to cost somewhere around 70,000 USD.

Press Release

JAGUAR ANNOUNCES A NEW COMPACT PERFORMANCE SUV, THE ALL-NEW JAGUAR E-PACE WILL JOIN THE LINEUP IN 2018

Today, Jaguar announces a new compact performance SUV, the Jaguar E-PACE, will expand the Jaguar model lineup as the 2nd performance SUV in the ‘PACE’ line-up.

The E-PACE will be the third new Jaguar nameplate recently added to the Jaguar model portfolio following the introduction of the Jaguar XE sports sedan and Jaguar F-PACE performance SUV which have contributed to a 44 percent sales growth for the Jaguar brand in the U.S. through May 2017, and the all-electric I-PACE Concept which will go into production in 2018.

Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar, said, “The combination of sports car looks with Jaguar performance will ensure that the E-PACE stands out. Every Jaguar is designed to excite the senses, and we think E-PACE will do just that, albeit with its own individual character.”

The Jaguar E-PACE features standard all-wheel drive technology and an all-Ingenium line-up of petrol engines, as well as a suite of connected technology and convenience features.

The compact performance SUV will be revealed to the world on July 13, 2017.
