With the F-Pace proving such a success for Jaguar since it was launched (it boosted sales by over 80 per cent last year) it isn’t a surprise that the carmaker is keen to produce more family haulers and oh look what just dropped into our inbox – a teaser image of the upcoming E-Pace SUV!
The newbie which Jaguar says will be a “compact performance SUV” is set to combine sportscar design and agility with everyday SUV practicality. It’ll have its world premiere on July 13 but we’re sure more teasers will flood the net before then. What we know so far about the E-Pace is that it will feature four-wheel drive along with a range of Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. And it’ll be loaded with tech and safety features.
Ian Callum, director of design at Jaguar, said: “The combination of sportscar looks with Jaguar performance will ensure that the E-Pace stands out. Every Jaguar is designed to excite the senses, and we think the E-Pace will do just that, albeit with its own individual character.”
It looks a bit like the F-Pace and features similar looking taillights but it’ll be smaller than it and cheaper too starting at around the Dh140,000 mark and could overtake the popular F-Pace in sales. It will battle the likes of the BMW X1 and Audi Q3 and with the electric I-Pace to follow (2018), Jaguar might just have a stronger SUV range than Porsche and Audi! Er, actually, forget the last one…
