A NEW MODEL, A NEW CATEGORY
The Ford’s management years have been important though quite uncertain for the historic British multinational luxury car manufacturer, Jaguar.
Since 2008, in the Tata Motors era, the company seems to have started a new happy season of its history. And it celebrated this sort of rebirth with another new model. After many sport cars and big sedans, Jaguar has recently launched the E-Pace, the British brand’s second SUV.
THE E-PACE, SO FAR JAGUAR’S SMALLEST SUV
According to the specialized press, especially the British one, this E-Pace SUV could easily become the company’s best-selling creation, because it perfectly answers to many requirements and desires expressed today by the market.
This E-Pace D180 AWD R-Dynamic costs £34,800. Measuring only 4,39 metres long, it is endowed with a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine and a turbocharged diesel Power. Its top speed is, according to the British company, 127mph and it can go from 0 to 62mph in only 9.3 seconds.
A PROMISING COMMERCIAL FUTURE
Its larger predecessor, the sharp and successful Jaguar F-Pace, (34 centimeters longer that this last model) is today the British automotive maker’s best-seller, it has actually rapidly become the fastest-selling model in the brand’s 94-year history. And the E-Pace will probably also fulfill all the company’s commercial expectations.
It is already considered a very elegant, good-looking and stylish car. Moreover, the car’s interiors are comfortable, cozy and endowed with a clean and beautiful layout. It offers abundant rear leg space for adult passengers.
Therefore this not wholly classic Jaguar is already considered an appropriate alternative choice to other four-star models of its segment, the spacious Audi Q3, the Bmw X1, but also the muscular Mercedes GLA and the sophisticated Range Rover Evoque.
However, Jaguar will not rest on its laurels with this promising baby luxury SUV. Capitalizing on its strong recent success, the British brand will soon launch its fully electric I-Pace SUV but also, probably not before 2019, a bigger version of the company’s traditional SUVs, the J-Pace.
