Jaguar hints at Australian pricing for 2018 E-PACE

With a starting price of 28, 500 in United Kingdom the Jaguar E-Pace is expected to be introduced in the Indian market with a larger price tag which may be above Rs. 24 lakh. The new E-Pace will compete against Mercedes-Benz GLA and Audi Q3 that Jaguar was prepping for a long time now and keeps up with the design philosophy started with the F-Pace previous year.

Jaguar is positioning the E-Pace as a much more sports-orientated model than its larger sister with drivers able to set up their own personalised throttle, steering and transmission settings.

The exterior design is inspired by the Jaguar F-Type sports vehicle, with the distinctive Jaguar grille, as well as the fast sweep of the roofline and the distinctive side window graphic.

This is the first time that the Jaguar has manufactured a auto outside its home market in Austria.

The new SUV will be the first Jaguar to be produced outside the United Kingdom after the company said its West Midlands plants were close to capacity.

The information stating that the E-PACE will be the first Jaguar model to benefit from an exclusive range of Ingenium petrol and diesel engines.

Apple Inc. OLED iPhone Production Delayed
This week was not a good one for Apple fans, as there were more bad news than good news for the highly anticipated iPhone 8 . Moreover, the OLED 5.8-inch iPhone (with bezel-less screen and all-new chassis design ) may not be available until November.

As far as the engine is concerned, there's either a 2.0 litre diesel with 150, 180 or 240bhp or a 240 or 300bhp petrol with FWD or AWD.

The new Jaguar E-Pace configurator is already live on Jaguar's website, where you can build and specify your flawless E-Pace - and it could cost £60k.

But that headline starting price will only buy you the entry-level E-PAce D150 manual with front-wheel drive.

Now for the company's new E-Pace compact crossover there are naturally things to jump over and set another Guinness world record in order for us to notice it (because let's face it, it looks a lot more ordinary than the F-Pace...) and bask in its barrel-rolling aptitude. The car's 4G wi-fi hotspot will provide content streaming through up to eight devices simultaneously, while a Touch Pro infotainment system will allow occupants to access their favourite smart device apps through the vehicle.
