Heavily camouflaged Jaguar E-Pace undergoes extreme weather testing

Jaguar is set to release another crossover apart from the F-Pace which was released back in 2015. Our insiders were able to snap photos of what looks to be the upcoming E-Pace. Set to compete against the likes of the Audi Q3 and BMW X1, it'll be smaller than the F-Pace in size but appears to have styling cues from its bigger sibling.

Even with the heavy camouflage, the prototype E-Pace shows styling cues borrowed from the larger F-Pace. Style-wise, the front fascia appears to have a large grill, sleek headlights and side air intakes.

From the side, it is clear that the E-Pace will slot below the F-Pace thanks to the crossover's short overhangs and shortened third-row window.

Around the back, it gets thin taillights which resemble the ones used on the F-Pace, dual exhaust pipes integrated on the rear bumper and a tailgate-mounted spoiler.

To keep up with other high-tech crossovers, Jaguar will apparently fit it with the Incontrol Touch Pro infotainment system.

A series of gasoline- and diesel-powered Ingenium four cylinder engines are expected to be available for the upcoming E-Pace. A fully electric version of the E-Pace may also arrive after a few years.

Rumor has it that Jaguar will officially unveil the E-Pace in mid-2017.
