Anyone have any issues with a delayed throttle response? It is most noticeable when accelerating from a rolling stop such as slowing for a car in front of you and then accelerating. The car seems to almost stall then with a 3-5 second delay rockets forward. Very frustrating. If needing to accelerate quickly, I am afraid it is going to cause me to get hit. Dealership reported no others have reported the issue.

I have noticed this. I have a 2020 SE. I notice it in the shift from 2 to 3. It seems that it wants to shift to 3 too soon, causing the RPM to drop really low. This drop in RPM seems like a stall, but it is really just in the wrong power band. It does not seem to be as much of an issue in other gears.

As a work around, if I want a smooth shift, especially when I am in traffic and want response, I use the manual shifters. I put myself in 2. Then shift at the right RPM. Makes a smooth transition to 3. The the rest of the shifts seem fine after that. I cancel the manual mode by pressing in on the paddle.

I have a 21MY Epace and mine does exactly the same the Dealership I purchased it from said that “they all do it, put it into R mode that might work “ I have spoken to Jaguar they don’t seem to think it should either, they suggested I take it to another Dealership which I have,went out with a technician showed him the fault he again seemed to believe that they all do it and his Evoke does the same, he checked for updates on the software I wasn’t told if there was or not so I will have to phone and ask. I have driven jaguars since I was a lad and I have never had any of them act like this.

I am experiencing the same issue with my 2020 E-Pace SE. Its worse from a "roll" or coast. Taking it for service in August. The display also has issues where it just doesn't come on.
I had the same problem with my display and it used to freeze up , the dealership said that it needed an update which it has now had so I will have to wait and see what happens,as for the delay it had a gearbox update but alas it’s still the same.

Good luck,keep us posted.
I have had this in for service now several times for the throttle delay. They refuse to admit there is a problem and keep telling me that if they can't replicate the problem then they won't do anything. I opened a claim with Jaguar Corporate and they are backing the retailer. Its like they don't believe me. They won't admit that it is a known problem even tho it clearly is according to us here.

Hi,the garage have now admitted that it is a characteristic of the car and they all do it and as it’s a characteristic not a fault there is nothing to fix, I’ve now started a service complaint with Jaguar and I’ll see what happens next.

I have an open case and they just keep telling me that they cant do anything until it happens while one of them are driving. This is a very dangerous "characteristic". High performance engines should always accelerate when the gas peddle is pushed, no decelerate. This has the ingredients for a Class Action Law Suit.
