FOUR POT POWER

CAR (UK) - - Cover story Jaguar E Pace -

Like no other Jaguar currently on sale, EPace is ex­clu­sively pow­ered by four-cylin­der en­gines mounted trans­versely in the nose. Op­tions stretch from tepid and fru­gal (diesel, man­ual, front-drive) right through to juicy and Golf R-fast; 296bhp petrol, auto, all-wheel drive). Launch line-up doesn’t in­clude a hy­brid, though the plug-in hy­brid pow­er­train from the re­cently con‘irmed (by Dr Ralf Speth) PHEV Range Rover – a com­bi­na­tion of 2.0-litre petrol In­ge­nium en­gine and elec­tric drive mod­ule – will see ser­vice in larger Jaguars there­after. All JLR cars will be elec­tri‘ied from 2020, but EPace is some way back in that queue.
