Before that, the XE showed other compact saloons how it's done.

When it arrives at UK Jaguar dealers the E-Pace will be pitched as a significantly more sporty SUV than its larger F-Pace sister. No, it's not an electric vehicle ─ that is the I-Pace. Glad you asked. These are the facts, including the price, performance figures, dimensions, Carbon dioxide emissions and technical specs. The E-Pace is 4,345mm long, 1,984mm wide and 1,649mm high, with a wheelbase of 2,681mm.

In fact, underneath the body with its F-Type style headlamps, relatively low roofline and sloping tailgate is a platform based on the Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque with a transverse engine layout.

This baby is all set to compete with the likes of BMW X1. Basically, a showcase for how much you could spend on an E-Pace.

The one area where the F-Pace falls down is the interior, which is solid but looks a bit cheap and nasty.

The Jaguar XE was billed as the vehicle which would see Jaguar's sales soar in the way Land Rover's have in recent years, but it's being outsold by the F-Pace SUV.

But the styling is different from the F-Pace - although the big grille is there - with lights which sweep back, like the F-Type's, with a sweeping roof, strong lines on the flanks, defined haunches, chicane graphic tail lights, crisp surfacing and a clean rear end.

The Jaguar E-Pace order books opened tonight and prices start from £28,500. Perhaps Brexit is part of the reason, but Jaguar Land Rover's official line is that its United Kingdom facilities are close to capacity.

Attempt to ban military from providing trans health care fails in Congress
An estimated 15,000 service members are transgender, according to the Williams Institute , a leading LGBT think tank. Hartzler said the measure would ensure the military's tax-funded budget is spent exclusively on defense purposes.

As for the E-Pace, it is just what the populace wanted in the first place.

"With the E-Pace, our aim was to develop a Jaguar SUV that feels and responds with the character of any of our rear-wheel drive vehicles", chief engineer of vehicle integrity Mike Cross said. That said, the SUV will be offered in both front and all wheel drive options.

Entertainment comes via Jaguar's 10-inch Touch Pro infotainment screen that acts as a suite for apps, wifi, and various modes of entertainment. A 4G WiFi hotspot for up to eight simultaneous device connections will also be offered, ensuring everyone is connected to the web while on the move.

The E-Pace will be the first Jag powered exclusively by the brand's Ingenium family of engines. The E-Pace consists of an F-Pace that has been devalued in terms of the price tag, the capacity and the design philosophy.

Stiff suspension bushes and anti-roll bars help keep things flat.

Customers will also be spoilt for choice in terms of 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine-specs which includes a 110kW, 132kW and 177kW diesel alongside two petrol variants with 183kW and 221kW of power.

But that's going to be for an entry-level FWD, E-Pace. Jaguar claims a 0-100 kmph time of 7 seconds and a top speed of 230kmph. The D40 stops the clock in 7.4 seconds and the D180 9.3.
