  • 2017 Jaguar E-Pace

The little brother to the successful F-Pace SUV, the E-Pace is a smaller, but no less pretty crossover SUV shocked the world with its unconventional introduction.

Jaguar teased the E-Pace earlier in July.

A Guinness World Records adjudicator was on hand to observe and certify the jump as the longest corkscrew jump for any production vehicle.

Some of the E-Pace's design cues, such as the headlights and fascia, were taken from the F-Type sports auto.

Jaguar has the luxury of eschewing the boxy look seeing as it has sister company Land Rover to cover-off the more conventionally off-road end of the design spectrum.

The E-Pace sits on JLR's LR-MS platform which now underpins the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque.

The Jaguar E-PACE will be also be manufactured at Chery Jaguar Land Rover's state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Changshu.

While the judge is granting Hirano access to see the baby, he holds firm that only "dramatic new evidence " would change his mind. His parents appealed all the way to the Supreme Court but lost but on July 7 GOSH applied for a fresh hearing at the High Court.

Though which engines will make it to our shores isn't yet finalized, all of the diesel and petrol engines are 2.0-litre turbo units.

Magna will also produce the firm's previously announced first electric model, the I-PACE, from 2018, although JLR has said it wants to build low-emissions vehicles in Britain if certain conditions are met. Jaguar claims a 0-100 kmph time of 7 seconds and a top speed of 230kmph. This is because the United Kingdom plant is running at capacity and won't be able to churn out the expected six-figure annual production run of the E-Pace. The most notable change in the stance over the F-Pace is the short overhangs. With a boot capacity of 577 litres, the E-Pace will be quite practical too, especially with the rear seats foldable. A family with one or two kids should get by nicely.

The E-Pace will also be the first front-wheel-drive Jaguar to go on sale since the X-Type saloon, that ceased production in 2009.

The Jaguar XE was billed as the auto which would see Jaguar's sales soar in the way Land Rover's have in recent years, but it's being outsold by the F-Pace SUV. A First Edition model will be exclusively available for the first year, priced at £47,500, available with either the 178bhp diesel or 246bhp petrol engine and based on the R-Dynamic SE specification pack.

"Inside, the dash is clearly influenced by the F-Type, with a 10.2" infotainment touchscreen, optional 12.3" digital instrument panel, Jaguar's inControl Apps, HVAC screens and a proper gear stick rather than a rotary knob.

Among the options list is an outdoor activity key, which is basically a water and shock-proof transponder allowing vehicle access after energetic outings while leaving the main key locked in the vehicle.

During an worldwide launch event in London yesterday, the driver took the all-new compact SUV for a 270-degree corkscrew-like spin, careened off a dirt hump, and safely landed.
