A flagship E-Pace First Edition model is also available on order, only during its first year on sale,” Jaguar said.
Under the bonnet, E-Pace features a choice of five powerful Ingenium engines: including a 110kW Ingenium diesel engine that delivers consumption of 5.6 l/100km and a high-performance turbo petrol that will power E-Pace from 0-100km/h in just 6.4 seconds.
The car’s exterior design is inspired by the F-Type sports car and characterised by the distinctive Jaguar grille, muscular proportions, short overhangs and powerful haunches.

The cabin also provides up to four 12-volt charging points and five USB connections, as well as a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices.
