In a premiere, Jaguar carmaker is secretly preparing an SUV with full-electric drivetrain, which is pretty good news in the segment; this way, it will encourage other carmakers to come with their own viable and zero emissions SUVs.
According to Autocar magazine, the long-rumored Jaguar all-electric SUV might be called E-Pace and could appear faster than you think, which is in a couple of months, and that because the carmaker has already given the go ahead for production.
The upcoming Jaguar E-Pace is also reported to come with the company`s recently developed EV platform, first seen a year ago on the facelifted Range Rover Evoque.
In the engine department, the E-Pace is rumored to come with two electric motors, each one powering the front and rear axle respectively, outputting 114 horsepower up front and 195 horsepower at the rear, which is pretty impressive for an all-electric SUV. The impressive torque is also possible thanks to the drivetrain`s torque vectoring system which shifts the power between the front and rear axles.
The electric drivetrain will be paired to a battery lithium-ion pack, with more than 70 kWh capacity, and a range of up to 300 miles.
The Jaguar E-Peace in the test mule is closer to its production version, and we should also expect it unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.
