Jaguar releases teaser of upcoming E-Pace

The second crossover to come from Jaguar, the E-Pace, will officially make its world premiere on July 13. It is set to arrive early 2018 and is expected to help boost Jaguar's sales as well given its lower expected starting price. The E-Pace is expected to follow suit to its larger F-Pace sibling, which drove Jaguar's sales up by 83 percent during its first year of sales.

As of the moment, all we have to go on is a lone teaser image of the upcoming E-Pace showing off its rear quarter and LED tail light. Jaguar does mention however that the E-Pace features “sports car-derived AWD technology and an all-Ingenium line-up of petrol and diesel engines, as well as a suite of connected technology and safety features.”

Expect the E-Pace to be smaller than the F-Pace as our spies have shown us. The E-Pace will likely go against the likes of the Audi Q3 and BMW X1

Ian Callum, director of design, Jaguar does say that the E-Pace will feature the combination of “sports car looks with Jaguar performance” hinting at a more sporty looking SUV possibly sized similar to the I-Pace, which will go into production in 2018. Callum closes by saying that the E-Pace will have its “own individual character.”
