Produced by the British car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover, the new Jaguar E-PACE made its officially debut in a big way when it set an official Guinness World Records title by leaping into the record books with a 15.3 metre-long jump complete with a 270-degree ‘barrel roll’. During the big reveal, which took place in July at the London ExCel centre, stunt driver Terry Grant who currently holds 21 Guinness World Records titles was filmed performing the gravity-defying jump while behind the wheels of the compact performance SUV:
Described as a combination between a powerful sports car and a practical all-wheel-drive vehicle, the new Jaguar E-PACE is sure to turn heads on the streets. The design of the exterior pays subtle homage to the Jaguar F-TYPE sports car which includes the distinctive Jaguar grille, muscular proportions, short overhangs and powerful haunches that give it a bold and purposeful stance. Other additional details to watch out for include the fast sweep of the roofline and the distinctive side window graphic.
Available variants of the E-PACE include a range of powerful and efficient Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, while drivers looking for the ultimate efficiency can opt for the front-wheel drive 150PS Ingenium diesel that delivers CO2 emissions of 124g/km. The vehicle also comes equipped with the Configurable Dynamics system that offers individual settings for the throttle, automatic transmission, steering, and (where fitted) Adaptive Dynamics — a special suspension system for improved roll control and agility in all conditions.
Inside this spacious five seater, passengers will have access to several high-tech features that allow them to stay connected while on the go. Digital connectivity can be found throughout the cabin where up to four 12-volt charging points and five USB connections are offered as well as a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices. The vehicle also comes with a 10-inch touchscreen as a standard which comes packed with several popular apps including Spotify. Most impressive of all would be the handy InControl system that allows users to keep track of the vehicle at all times via smartphone. Besides locating the vehicle, this high-tech system can also be used to automatically send alerts to emergency services in case of an accident; allow users to keep tabs on fuel levels as well as mileage via a smartphone or smartwatch; maintain interior temperatures at a comfortable level and to start the vehicle remotely.
