Motor Authority spy photographers managed to catch two E-Pace prototypes on video whilst they were being test driven in the cold.
Jaguar's mid-sized F-Pace has been doing very well in terms of sales since its release with a total of 45,973 units sold last year which accounts for around 30% of Jaguar's sales. Perhaps the British automaker is hoping for a repeat of this success with the smaller E-Pace.
Unlike the usual spy shots, these vehicles were seen leaving a grocery store parking lot. Perhaps Jaguar engineers were testing the Park Assist or Blind Spot Monitor systems that's already available in the F-Pace.
We can clearly see design elements the E-Pace shares with its siblings, the F-Pace and I-Pace concept, but with a sportier front facia and lines. There's the heavily sloping rear screen, rising shoulder line , rectangular front grille, narrow front and rear lights, all featured on a five-door body.
As for powertrains, we can only make assumptions as we're still a ways off from its debut which is expected to take place late this year or early next year. Our best guess would be the Ingenium inline-4 engines or maybe even the new inline-3 that Jaguar Land Rover is working on.
Regardless of what's under that bonnet, we can expect great things from design chief Ian Callum with the new E-Pace.
