E-PACE SETS WORLD RECORD

August 14th, 2017 by

At Jaguar Dallas we are over the moon excited about the new Jaguar E-PACE! Jaguar’s new compact luxury SUV is the perfect addition to the Jaguar family and the perfect enhancement to your lifestyle.

Through a 25-month testing period, the Jaguar E-PACE was pushed to its limit, literally. The E-PACE was put through strenuous testing to ensure maximum performance through all weathers and surfaces. The testing took place on four different continents, from a giant motorsport complex in Germany to the deserts in the Middle East.

The Jaguar E-PACE’s final test was done during its world debut in London, England, on July 13, a 15.3 meter-long jump with a 270-degree ‘barrel roll’. This “test” set an official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Furthest Barrel Roll in a Production Vehicle, as well as proved the E-PACE lives up to the Jaguar ‘Art of Performance’ philosophy.

“Established Jaguar design principles ensure the E-PACE is immediately recognizable as the sports car of its class,” Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, said.” Our new compact SUV combines the interior space, connectivity, and security that families expect with the kind of proportions, purity of design and performance not usually associated with such a practical vehicle.”

Stunt driver, Terry Grant, performed the barrel roll with the E-PACE. 160 meters of run up was required to hit the air at the correct speed for the stunt. Grant experienced a G-Force of 5.5 during the roll.

“The Jaguar E-PACE provides the best of both worlds: Jaguar sports car dynamics and compact SUV practicality,” Alan Volkaerts, Jaguar E-PACE Vehicle Line Director, said. “The latest addition to our growing PACE family provides comfort, interior space, and leading stowage solutions allied to engaging handling and Jaguar Land Rover’s latest Ingenium petrol and diesel engines.”
