New Jaguar E-Pace breaks barrel roll jump world record

It was launched at London’s ExCel centre with stunt driver terry Grant performing a world record “barrell roll” jump, recreating a stunt from James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun. The launch of Jaguar E-Pace has been one of the most riskiest vehicle launches ever and this riskiest auto launches of the Jaguar E-Pace has bagged the vehicle its first award at the launch itself.

Jaguar E-Pace has been unveiled globally, it is the smallest SUV that Jaguar has produced.

The E-Pace comes packed with tech, with digital displays, a waterproof wearable Activity Key that allows you to connect to your smart watch, 4G Wi-Fi hotspots, and several USB points; as well as the kind of space SUVs afford – in this case 1,234 litres of luggage space (with rear seats folded), plus other compartments throughout the cabin for you to keep whatever you want.

It’s just 48 hours since the new Jaguar E-Pace was revealed, but Jaguar are wasting no time reaching out to buyers, with the E-Pace configurator already live on Jaguar’s website.

First deliveries are expected in 2017 and observers are confident that the vehicle will become the brand’s best-selling model, taking on the Audi Q3 and BMW X1. The sturdy and robust E-Pace is expected to become Jaguar’s most-selling model.

According to the company most of the features will be high across most of the variants.

While we can also expect the E-PACE to be offered in Australia S, SE and HSE model grades.

But that headline starting price will only buy you the entry-level E-PAce D150 manual with front-wheel drive. The 297 bhp petrol variant is capable of hitting 0-100 kmph in 5.9 seconds.

These range from the 110kW diesel to the 221kW petrol.
