THE E-Pace is not, as the name suggests, Jaguar’s first electric SUV — that will be the I-Pace, which the British car maker unveiled at the Los Angeles motor show last year. No, the E-Pace is the baby sister of the F-Pace, Jaguar’s mid-size SUV launched at the end of 2015, and is powered by conventional petrol and diesel engines.
It is part of a campaign by Jaguar to expand its SUV offering, as sales of so-called crossovers — high-riding vehicles built on car platforms but with jacked-up suspension and more rugged looks — continue to boom. In the first quarter of 2017 European sales of premium mid-sized SUVs, such as the Mercedes GLC, Volvo XC60 and BMW X3, were up 27% on the same period in 2016.
