Wednesday 19 May 2021, Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Jaguar has enhanced the E-PACE range with the introduction of the sophisticated R-Dynamic Black Edition, and updated connectivity features. The new R-Dynamic Black Edition elevates the compact SUV’s dynamic design and visual appeal with a bespoke choice of exterior elements.

The R-Dynamic Black Edition expands the E-PACE range, which features Jaguar’s advanced Premium Transverse Architecture, a choice of efficient Ingenium powertrains – including Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) and Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technologies – state-of-the-art connectivity and luxurious interiors.

New technologies, including wireless Apple CarPlay® will provide added convenience and connectivity*. Wireless Android Auto™ will also become available at the same time*, making E-PACE ownership more connected than ever.

New E-PACE R-Dynamic Black Edition

The distinctive new R-Dynamic Black Edition is based on the E-PACE R-Dynamic S. It offers customers specially selected design elements that give E-PACE an even more dynamic and sophisticated presence.

The design includes Gloss Black door mirror caps and Gloss Black detailing to the front bumper and lower grille surround, main grille surround and grille tips. The side window surround and side vent – complete with the Jaguar leaper – also feature a Gloss Black finish, along with the Jaguar script and rear badging. Distinctive 19-inch Satin Grey alloy wheels with contrasting red brake calipers, privacy glass and a panoramic roof complete the exterior.

E-PACE R-DYNAMIC BLACK EDITION

The R-Dynamic Black Edition is available with all E-PACE exterior colours, including new Ostuni White. The distinctive finish has greater depth and substance, and perfectly complements E-PACE’s contemporary exterior design.

The latest addition to the E-PACE family is available with a choice of 2.0-litre Ingenium MHEV powertrains, ranging from the efficient D165 and D200 diesels to the smooth and powerful P200 and P250 petrols – all with a nine-speed automatic transmission and All-Wheel Drive as standard.

Advanced All-Wheel Drive (AWD) makes use of second-generation ‘Standard Driveline’ technology that automatically distributes torque between the front and rear wheels to ensure optimum traction. This AWD system utilises Driveline Disconnect technology that intelligently disengages AWD to optimise efficiency – for example when cruising at constant speeds.

Enhanced E-PACE specification

The latest E-PACE comes with even greater technology and connectivity options, with wireless Apple CarPlay® becoming available soon as standard*. Wireless  Android Auto™ will also become available as standard at the same time,* with both available via a SOTA update for all Pivi and Pivi Pro equipped E-PACE models – seamlessly replicating the customer’s smartphone display on the central touchscreen and giving drivers multiple methods of controlling infotainment and phone functions. The E-PACE is also available with wireless device charging.

E-PACE R-DYNAMIC BLACK EDITION

Jaguar’s advanced Pivi Pro infotainment system has a range of embedded apps, fast start-up from its own dedicated power source and dual-SIM technology so you can stream media and download updates simultaneously.

Pivi Pro technology is complemented by the 12.3-inch HD Interactive Driver Display that features enhanced graphics, a fully configurable layout with digital dials, media information, phone functions or full-screen mapping for the navigation system. With the optional Head-Up Display, the E-PACE’s interior technology ensures the driver is provided with numerous ways of configuring the set-up in the most convenient way possible.

The Cabin Air Purification system improves interior air quality through Nanoe technology, which removes allergens and unpleasant odours. The advanced system features PM2.5 filtration, which captures ultra-fine particles – including PM2.5 particulates – to improve occupant health and wellbeing and is activated by pressing the ‘Purify’ button within the central touchscreen.

The latest enhancements ensure Auto High Beam Assist is fitted as standard on E-PACE S models, previously standard on SE and HSE derivatives, while the seating options have been simplified, ensuring customers can specify the perfect E-PACE with ease. High-quality Meridian Audio Sound is now standard from SE specification and memory functions for the door mirrors and seats are now standard on S models.

All R-Dynamic models feature Configurable Dynamics as standard, allowing drivers to hone detailed aspects of the E-PACE’s driving dynamics, including throttle and gearbox responses, as well as steering settings and suspension (where Adaptive Dynamics is specified) to tailor the driving characteristics to suit individual driver preferences.

State-of-the-art architecture

Jaguar Land Rover’s Premium Transverse Architecture (PTA) ensures E-PACE is available with the latest electrified powertrain technologies, as well as delivering improved ride comfort with the performance and handling agility Jaguar customers expect.

New engine mounts contribute to enhanced throttle response, while the suspension layout ensures a comfortable ride while retaining Jaguar’s trademark dynamics. This is all complemented by the luxurious interior, which is more tranquil than ever thanks to the E-PACE’s advanced body architecture, which reduces vibrations and noise transfer into the cabin.

Electrified PHEV and MHEV powertrains

Jaguar E-PACE is available with an efficient three-cylinder P300e PHEV powertrain, plus the most advanced four-cylinder petrol and diesel Ingenium engines, utilising MHEV technology to deliver enhanced performance, refinement and efficiency.

The current engine line-up includes:

Diesel

  • 163PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, six-speed manual, FWD
  • 163PS MHEV 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, nine-speed automatic, AWD
  • 204PS MHEV 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, nine-speed automatic, AWD

Petrol

  • 160PS MHEV 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo, eight-speed automatic, FWD
  • 200PS MHEV 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, nine-speed automatic, AWD
  • 249PS MHEV 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, nine-speed automatic, AWD
  • 300PS MHEV 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, nine-speed automatic, AWD
  • 309PS PHEV 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo, eight-speed automatic, AWD

The P300e PHEV powertrain combines a 200PS 1.5-litre three-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine and a 109PS (80kW) Electric Rear Axle Drive (ERAD) motor to deliver 0-60mph in 6.1 seconds (0-100km/h in 6.5 seconds) with CO2 emissions from 44g/km and fuel efficiency of up to 143.1mpg (2.0l/100km) (WLTP TEH combined).

The advanced P300e powertrain operates in one of three modes: Hybrid, EV or Save:

  • HYBRID mode uses both the petrol engine and the electric motor in the most responsive and efficient way, intelligently switching between pure EV driving and using the petrol engine
  • EV mode provides zero-emissions driving for up to 34 miles (55km)
  • SAVE mode enables the driver to recover up to 85 per cent of battery charge, which can be deployed later in a journey, for example in urban areas

On powertrains fitted with MHEV technology, a Belt integrated Starter Generator (BiSG) recuperates energy usually lost during braking or deceleration, which is stored in a 48-volt lithium-ion battery beneath the boot floor. This stored energy is then redeployed during acceleration for enhanced responses, or when the vehicle’s stop/start system is required, making the process more refined and faster to react.

Heading up the petrol engine range is the 300PS MHEV variant which produces 400Nm of torque delivering 0-60mph in 6.6 seconds (0-100km/h in 6.9 seconds). Available exclusively in the 300 SPORT with Jaguar’s second-generation Active Driveline AWD system, it delivers accomplished all-wheel traction with trademark dynamic capability.
