The Jaguar F-PACE has been revised inside and out, and it’s gaining a new Plug-in Hybrid powertrain, providing an all-electric range of up to 33 miles, 130mpg, and CO2 emissions from 49g/km.
The new 2.0-litre four-cylinder PHEV model produces a combined 404PS and 640Nm from its petrol engine and 105kW electric motor, which is powered by a 17.1kWh lithium-ion battery. Despite the impressive economy figures, 0-60mph acceleration is still possible in 5.0 seconds.
When fully charged, the new P400e is capable of up to 33 miles of all-electric driving, enabling the new F-PACE PHEV to complete the average UK daily commute, of 18.8 miles to and from work, in EV mode without requiring a recharge. Fast Charging (32kW DC) is capable of delivering 0-80 per cent charge in 30 minutes while a domestic 7kW wall box can provide a charge of 0-80 per cent in one hour 40 minutes.
All-wheel drive is standard across all F-PACE models and Intelligent Driveline Dynamics provides rear-wheel drive biased performance, with the ability to vary torque to individual axles almost instantly depending on conditions.
The new F-PACE chassis has been updated to support the introduction of the new electrified engines as well as enabling the latest JaguarDrive Control and new Auto Vehicle Hold.
The latest JaguarDrive Control features Comfort, Eco, Rain-Ice-Snow and Dynamic modes, which can be chosen manually by the driver based on the road conditions. The settings, selected through a new rotary dial next to the all-new Drive Selector, adapt the F-PACE’s steering, transmission, throttle and (when specified) Adaptive Dynamics settings.
Cabin Air Ionisation improves interior air quality through Nanoe technology, which removes allergens and unpleasant odours. The system now also features PM2.5 filtration, which captures ultra-fine particles – including PM2.5 particulates – to improve occupant health and wellbeing. The customer activates the system by pressing the ‘Purify’ button.
The new F-PACE features Jaguar’s advanced Electronic Vehicle Architecture, EVA 2.0, which supports a range of new technologies to ensure the future-ready vehicle is always connected and always up to date.
The latest Pivi Pro infotainment technology is accessed through the all-new 11.4-inch curved glass HD touchscreen. This offers enhanced clarity, the screen is three times brighter and 48% larger than the previous 10-inch screen, and the simplified menu structures allow drivers to access or view up to 90 per cent of common tasks from the home screen in two taps or less.
The new F-PACE also features a new 12.3-inch HD Interactive Driver Display (standard fit on SE and HSE derivatives) with enhanced graphics and a configurable layout which can show full-screen navigation mapping with turn-by-turn instructions, digital dials, media, contact list or infotainment details. This works in conjunction with optional Head-up Display technology.
To enable instantaneous start-up, Pivi Pro has a dedicated power source, so is ready to use as soon as customers get behind the wheel.
The collection of new convenience technologies includes Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) capability, which ensures that the F-PACE is always using the latest software. The technology means that owners don’t have to visit retailers to receive software updates for the vehicle.
Segment-first Active Road Noise Cancellation technology constantly monitors vibrations from the road surface and calculates the opposite phase sound wave needed to remove the noise heard by the occupants. This means quieter levels within the cabin and improved refinement that helps to reduce fatigue, commonly associated with prolonged exposure to low-frequency noise. Cabin occupancy is monitored, with the system continuously optimising performance to deliver the best possible experience for everyone. The lightweight technology ensures that vehicle weight and handling characteristics remain unaffected. Engine Noise Cancellation isolates the cabin from unwanted engine noise to further enhance the sense of tranquillity.
An updated, second-generation wearable Activity Key can be used to lock, unlock and start the vehicle without the need for the conventional key fob to be present in the vehicle. The rechargeable device incorporates a watch and has a battery life of up to seven days between charges.
The aluminium-intensive architecture uses recycled aluminium from closed-loop manufacturing for greater sustainability.
Customers can enhance their F-PACE with S, SE and HSE specification packs and choose the R-Dynamic specification. Also optional on all models is the Black Exterior Pack.
The PHEV range starts at £56,060 for the P400e AWD Auto S and rises to £64,490 for the P400e AWD Auto R-Dynamic HSE.
The new Jaguar F-PACE is available to order now. Customer deliveries of Plug-in-hybrid (PHEV) models will begin in early Spring 2021.
