Jaguar E-PACE - "The Kitty"

Why the Jaguar E-Pace has “The Kitty” nickname?


So, the Jaguar E-PACE is a compact SUV that also bears the Jag`s DNA. The E-PACE is smaller than the Jaguar F-PACE and that’s the reason I called it “The Kitty”.





The new Jaguar E-PACE is 4395 mm (173 in) long; 1984 mm (77.11 in) wide with folded mirrors and 2088 mm (82.21 in) wing mirrors out. The E-PACE is 1649 mm (64.92 in) high and its wheelbase is 2681 mm (105.55 in).

The All-New Jaguar E-Pace Comes With Diesel And Petrol Ingenium Engines.


The first engine for the Jaguar E-PACE is D150 FWD. It uses 2.0 L 4-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine with 150 PS (147.89 hp/ 110 kW) and its max torque is 380 Nm (280.27 lb-ft). The engine is mated to 6-speed manual gearbox and it has Front-Wheel-Drive. The Jaguar E-PACE with this engine goes from 0-60 mph/0-100 km/h for 9.5/10.1 seconds. The D150 AWD is an All-Wheel-Drive version of the same engine. It runs the E-PACE from 0-60 mph/0-100 km/h for 10.1/10.7 seconds. The D150 AWD is available either with manual transmission or an automatic 9-speed ZF transmission.

The Jaguar E-PACE diesel engine has 5 version with power from 147.89 hp to 236.62 hp. The diesel version aren't available in USA.

The Jaguar E-PACE D180 AWD version is available only with all-wheel-drive. You can also choose between manual or automatic transmission.  The D180 AWD has a 2.0 L Ingenium diesel engine with 180 PS/177.47 HP/132 kW its max torque is 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft). With this unit, the Jaguar E-PACE goes from 0-60 mph/0-100 km/h for 9.4/9.9 seconds with a manual gearbox and for 8.7/9.3 seconds with an automatic gearbox.




The most powerful diesel version of the new Jaguar E-PACE is D240 AWD. It’s available only with an all-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox. Its engine produces 240 PS/236.62 HP/177 kW its max torque is 500 Nm (368.78 lb-ft). Using the D240 AWD version the E-PACE goes from 0-60 mph/0-100 km/h for 7/7.4 seconds.




The diesel version of the Jaguar E-PACE isn’t available in the USA. So, there are only gasoline versions for that market.

The Jaguar E-PACE is available with two gasoline/petrol engines with 246.48 hp or 295.78 hp.

The Jaguar E-PACE has two Ingenium petrol/gasoline versions: P250 AWD and P300 AWD. Both versions have 2.0 L 4-cylinder Ingenium petrol/gasoline engines with all-wheel-drive and only an automatic gearbox.

A brochure of the Jaguar E-PACE drivetrain explained by Jaguar: The Active Driveline can shift all of the rear axle torque to the outside wheel during cornering, ensuring stability in all conditions. The Active Driveline analyses driving and road conditions, calculating the optimum torque for every wheel every 10 milliseconds. The Active Driveline as an all-wheel-drive system offers you the best of both worlds - shifting the engine's torque to the rear axle to provide you with the benefits of a rear-wheel-drive car, or to the front axle to boost the fuel efficiency. Adaptive Dynamics - Continuously variable damper technology give the perfect mix of handling response and body control damping force every 0.01 seconds.

The Jaguar E-PACE has a MacPherson strut with a lower control arm, coil spring, passive dampers, and passive anti-roll bar front suspension. The rear suspension is based on the F-PACE version but it’s smaller: Integral multi-link with coil springs, passive dampers, and passive anti-roll bar.

The main idea about the Jaguar E-PACE is to be for active people. People who dare to live out of the box. The Jaguar E-PACE isn’t just a compact SUV. It’s more than to drive to work and back home. The Jaguar E-PACE wants to be driven to the place where nobody has been there. It’s not a regular car. It bears the charisma of the wild cat. The Jaguar E-PACE is going to change your life. If you’re looking for a reason to change the life you live here it is The Jaguar E-PACE “The Kitty”.




The first significant point about the active character of the E-PACE is its Jaguar Activity Key. It’s a wristband that enables you to leave the original key lock in the car and to go do outdoors. The wristband is waterproof and also shockproof. So, no need to worry about the key.

A brochure of the Jaguar E-PACE interior space as Jaugar says: Becasue your essential are exactly that, the main luggage area can accommodate your golf clubs or pram or six carry-on flight suitcases. There's a total of 577 litters with the seats uo, or a spacious 1,234 liters with 60/40 split-rear seats folded. At 8.5 liters the centre console is designed to fit two, one-litre bottles lying flat - with room to spare. There's more than 40 litres of storage inside overall, includung a 10 litre glovebox.

The Jaguar E-PACE allows you to load all equipment you need. Its trunk space is 577 liters but if you fold down the rear seats the space becomes 1,234 litter. This gives you to load 1.6-meter-long objects. The rear seats can be split in a 40:60 ratio. You can open/close the tail door of the Jaguar E-PACE with a gesture of your leg.

Having a lot of space for a lot of stuff you can go wherever you want. The Jaguar E-PACE will serve you. If you choose any of the all-wheel-drive versions of the E-PACE I am sure that there isn’t a place where you can’t go. The Jaguar E-PACE has been tested on the most extreme driving around the globe. The conditions where the Jaguar did their test of the new E-PACE are:

The stability in cornering is very important. That’s why the Jaguar E-PACE has Active Driveline. It can shift all of the rear axle torque to the outside wheel, ensuring stability in all conditions. The Active Driveline analyses driving and road condition, calculate the optimum torque for each wheel on every 10 milliseconds. So, this means that you can go whatever you want but don’t get stuck anywhere. Another feature of the Active Driveline is that in steady driving the meaning drive is supplied to the front wheels only. Thus eradicating friction losses and boosting fuel efficiency. Re-coupling occurs in 300 milliseconds.


The Active Driveline s created especially for the Jaguar E-PACE. You have the option to configure the Dynamics and you can set the throttle and steering response, transmission shift speed, and if fitted, Adaptive Dynamics suspension on your own.



The Adaptive Dynamics can adjust the damper of the Jaguar E-PACE settings every 10 milliseconds. Thus prepare the E-PACE as soon as a change in condition is detected for poor or no-road usage.


The Jaguar E-PACE has highly automated All Surface Progress Control. It has to help you in all cases where your E-PACE loses traction.

The Jaguar E-PACE interior looks very tidy. Although the steering wheel has a variety of buttons, they are surrounded by a chrome frame. Behind the steering wheel, the E-PACE has a 12.3” high definition full-color display which allows you to see the map in 3D. Above the instrument cluster, the Jaguar offers a full-color head-up display.

The middle console of the Jaguar E-PACE starts with air vents, followed by a 10-inch touchscreen and some buttons. The design of rotary ventilation dials is inspired by a 35 mm camera lens. On the bottom of the middle console is placed the gear stick. The dashboard of the new Jaguar E-PACE is separated on two by line. It starts on the middle of the dashboard with a chicane curve. That chicane curve has to represent the sporty character of the E-PACE. A similar chicane line could be found in the design of the taillights. However, that line becomes into a frame that finishes at the bottom part of the middle console. This gives the feeling that the interior is oriented to the driver.

Does the Jaguar E-PACE have an R-Dynamic version or not?


It has two types of front and rear bumpers. The R-Dynamic bumpers are more sporty and have a more aggressive design. The differences are that the E-PACE R-Dynamic has additional lines between headlights and air intakes. On the bottom part of the front bumper, the Jaguar E-PACE R-Dynamic has fog lights. Only the middle part of the rear bumpers is different. The R-Dynamic versions have been framed on the middle part where the standard E-PACE version is solid.
