Jaguar E-Pace is not a kiosk thug in Sweden. From January to September this year, only 13 cars were registered. How contributing the lack of electrification has been to that we will now see for Jaguar now presents a facelift version that will remedy it.

The crossover suve will eventually get a version with a charging connector. The plug-in hybrid is called the P300e and combines a 1.5-liter three-cylinder petrol engine of 200 horsepower and 280 newton meters at the front with an electric rear axle of 80 kW (109 horsepower) and 260 newton meters. The system power will thus be 309 horsepower. 0–100 km / h should take 6.5 seconds.

The electric range is 5.5 miles according to the WLTP driving cycle, which is comparable to the competitor BMW X1 xDrive25e’s 5.7 miles. The lowest CO2 emission figure for the E-Pace P300e is 44 g / km, which means that those who buy a new one are entitled to a bonus next year as well.

Maximum DC charging power is 32 kW, which should enable charging 0–80% of the 15 kWh lithium-ion battery pack in just half an hour. With 7 kW AC Mode 3 charging, it increases to 1 hour and 24 minutes.

Interior innovations include a new infotainment system with 11.4-inch screen as well as a new steering wheel, gear selector and digital rearview mirror.

Other news is that the car now has the opportunity to receive software updates wirelessly online (OTA).

In addition to the plug-in hybrid, both petrol and diesel engines are offered as before. Now, however, all are combined with a 48V mild hybrid system to reduce the consumption and emission figures somewhat. All of the four-wheel drive mild hybrids are equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission, while the front-wheel drive (and charging hybrid) are equipped with an 8-speed one.

An improved passenger compartment air filter that also filters out small particles (PM2.5) is also part of the news. This is something that JLR is also doing and introducing in the rest of its cars.

For models equipped with a 360-degree reversing camera, the car is now shown in a 3D perspective on the infotainment screen.

More mechanical changes have also been made, such as new engine mounts and stiffer front suspension mounts that will contribute to a better throttle response and less vibration and noise in the passenger compartment.
