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.
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.
The P250 produces 184 kW and 365 N.m. This model, Jaguar says, is capable of accelerating from zero to 100 km/h in 7,5 seconds. Exclusively powering the range-topping E-Pace – the 300 Sport – the P300 engine produces 221 kW and 400 N.m for a zero to 100 km/h acceleration time of 6,9 seconds and maximum speed of 241 km/h.
The upgraded interior features an array of JLR’s latest technologies. The facelifted E-Pace is equipped with an 11,4-inch curved touchscreen, incorporating the manufacturer’s new Pivi Pro infotainment system. The anti-glare glass display, JLR says, resists fingerprints. The configurable HD digital driver’s display measures 12,3 inches and features enhanced graphics. JLR’s ClearSight rear-view mirror, 3D surround camera and Jaguar’s driver condition monitor system are among the other interior technologies.
Exterior revisions include a new grille design, new all-LED headlamps with integrated “double J” daytime running lights. Pixel LED technology is available as an option. The rear bumper features a mesh insert, which sits between the integrated tailpipes.
