Cape Town – Jaguar’s new compact SUV, the E- E-Pace, has arrived in South Africa. Designed and engineered to introduce new fans to the brand, the E-Pace will retail from R598 500.

Despite Jaguar officially launching its new SUV on March 7, the E-Pace has already racked-up 32 units in local sales during February.

The E-Pace is the newest member of Jaguar’s SUV family, joining the World Car of the Year-winning F-Pace performance SUV, and Jaguar’s first all-electric SUV, the I-Pace Concept.

The local E-Pace range comprises 38 AWD derivatives.

Its exterior design is inspired by the F-Type sports car and characterised by the distinctive Jaguar grille, muscular proportions, short overhangs and powerful haunches. 

Optional 21” alloy wheels give the E-Pace a bold and purposeful stance, instantly communicating dynamic agility. Jaguar sports car DNA is also evident in the fast sweep of the roofline and the distinctive side window graphic.

The E-Pace is one of the most connected and intelligent vehicles in its class. The next-generation touchscreen infotainment system connects customers to their favourite apps, such as Spotify through Jaguar Land Rover’s InControl apps. Digital connectivity can be found throughout its cabin, providing modern families with up to four 12-volt charging points and five USB connections, as well as a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices.

All E-Pace derivates in South Africa will offer All-Wheel Drive as standard, using Jaguar’s Active Driveline technology to deliver optimal stability, driving engagement and fuel efficiency in all conditions. Under the bonnet,  buyers have a choice of five efficient yet powerful Ingenium engines: from an ultra-efficient 110kW Ingenium diesel engine that delivers consumption of 5.6 litres/100km to high-performance turbo petrol that will power E-Pace from 0-100km/h in just 6.4 seconds.

Customers can specify the engine when configuring their E-Pace or E-Pace R-Dynamic, and Jaguar offers a choice of four trim levels; Standard, S, SE and HSE. A flagship E-Pace First Edition model is also available to order.

All new Jaguar cars come with the Jaguar Five-year Care Plan: a five-year/100 000km service plan, a five-year/100 000km maintenance plan and a five-year/100 000km warranty, as standard.
