The facelifted Jaguar E-Pace has debuted in South Africa. Apart from the updated E-Pace featuring a number of exterior and interior upgrades, Jaguar Land Rover South Africa has added a new, PHEV derivative to the line-up, the P300e. See pricing below…

The revised E-Pace range features four engine options. The aforementioned model – the P300e – is equipped with the British firm’s “advanced” 1,5-litre three-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine which integrates plug-in hybrid technology. The P300e’s PHEV powertrain’s 147 kW internal combustion engine and 80 kW electric rear axle drive (ERAD) electric motor delivers a combined 227 kW and 540 N.m. The P300e, Jaguar claims, accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 6,5 seconds. According to the Coventry manufacturer, the all-wheel-drive PHEV’s 15 kWh lithium-ion battery provides 55 km of all-electric range when fully charged.

Four engine options are on offer. Powering the 300 Sport model (seen here), the P300 powerplant produces 221 kW and 400 N.m.

The second and third engine options are Jaguar Land Rover’s next-generation turbocharged 2,0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel and latest 2,0-litre four-cylinder petrol engines. The D200 derivative is powered by the former, which produces 147 kW and 430 N.m. Both the E-Pace P250 and 300 Sport are equipped with the turbocharged 2,0-litre petrol powertrain, though with different engine outputs.
