New Jaguar E-Pace rolls into the record books

ON A ROLL: The Jaguar flies through the air with the greatest of ease

THE NEW Jaguar E-Pace has set an official Guinness World Record title during its world premiere.

The compact performance SUV leapt into the record books with a 15.3 metre-long jump complete with a 270-degree corkscrew-like ‘barrel roll’. Demonstrating the agility, precision and performance of Jaguar’s newest SUV, the feat was the final test for E-Pace after 25 gruelling months of work across four continents to ensure extreme durability and that it lived up to Jaguar’s Art of Performance philosophy.

The Jaguar E-Pace is a five-seat, compact SUV that packs the design and performance of a Jaguar sports car into a spacious, practical and connected all-wheel-drive vehicle.

Trademark Jaguar driving dynamics and design put the brand’s sports car DNA in a practical design packed with advanced technologies to keep you connected.

The E-Pace is the newest member of Jaguar’s SUV family, joining the ground-breaking all-electric I-Pace Concept and the 2017 World Car of the Year, the Jaguar F-Pace – itself launched with a spectacular Guinness World Record setting loop-the-loop in 2015.

The exterior design is inspired by the Jaguar F-Type sports car and characterised by the distinctive Jaguar grille, muscular proportions, short overhangs and powerful haunches that give the E-Pace a bold and purposeful stance, instantly communicating dynamic agility.

Jaguar sports car DNA is also evident in the fast sweep of the roofline and the distinctive side window graphic.

The E-Pace completed its world record jump at ExCeL in London – one of only a handful of venues in the UK big enough to accommodate the 160-metre run-up and run-off vital for the 15-metre leap.
