Petaling Jaya, 5th August 2020 – For car enthusiasts, Jaguar’s updated sporty compact SUV, the Jaguar E-Pace, is set to take the joy of driving to a new level with Jaguar’s proprietary and innovative technologies that make it a smarter and more fuel-efficient drive, providing greater comfort and driving reliability.
The Jaguar E-Pace is fitted with the state-of-the-art 200PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged Ingenium petrol engine, which offers a cleaner and more efficient drive.
This E-Pace completes the 0-100km/h sprint in 8.2 seconds and like its siblings, features the same collection of advanced technologies found across the rest of the Ingenium engine family. This includes a twin scroll turbocharger, continuously variable valve lift and variable cam timing that work to enhance power and efficiency as well as the drivability of the car. The new engine is also equipped with particulate filters to make it even cleaner.
Among the new updates for the E-Pace is Jaguar’s Smart Settings – a self-learning technology which studies the driver’s habits and anticipates their needs to make driving more pleasurable and convenient.
• Jaguar E-Pace is available with Smart Settings and a 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol engine
• Clean and efficient Ingenium engine makes petrol power even more affordable to buy and run, while delivering 0-100km/h in 8.2 seconds
• Smart Settings incorporates artificial intelligence algorithms, allowing the E-Pace to learn habits and tastes, to predict seat comfort, climate and music preferences
The Smart Settings kicks in when the driver approaches the car. The vehicle recognises the driver via the key fob or the smartphone and then adjusts the seat, climate and infotainment system based on the driver’s preference.
Gradually, over time, this ‘self-learning’ technology will be able to pick up more of the driver’s preferences, such as time, location, weather and behaviour patterns. For example, it can change the media source on a particular day of the week or time of day. The Intelligent Phone Reminder function in the Smart Settings will also tell the driver if they forget their smartphones, while the Predictive Call List learns patterns of phone use to cue up popular contacts at the appropriate time.
The Smart Settings can store up to eight profiles, making it a worthwhile offering for fleets vehicle users and those who share their vehicle.
The E-Pace is equipped with a host of active and passive safety technologies that will keep you and your family safe. In the event of a collision, six airbags and two ISOFIX points protect occupants while a pedestrian airbag reduces injury to others.
For car enthusiasts, the E-Pace features an all-wheel drive system that is packed with technology designed to ensure the joy, safety and comfort of a Jaguar is not compromised no matter the driving conditions.
