49g/km F-Pace PHEV Breaks Cover
The new Jaguar F-Pace has broken cover with a choice of diesel and petrol engines, as well as mild and plug-in hybrid versions.
There is the P400e PHEV powertrain as well as the latest four-cylinder and new in-line six-cylinder petrol and diesel Ingenium engines.
Mild hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV) technology is also available on selected engines for the first time. All F-Pace models feature intelligent all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmissions.
The new 2.0-litre four-cylinder PHEV model produces a combined 404PS and 640Nm from its petrol engine and 105kW electric motor.
The electric motor is powered by a 17.1kWh lithium-ion battery and helps contribute to CO2 emissions from 49g/km and fuel economy of up to 130.2mpg as well as impressive performance figures of 0-60mph in 5.0 seconds.
When fully charged, the new P400e is capable of up to 33 miles of zero-emission driving. Fast Charging (32kW DC) is capable of delivering 0-80% charge in 30 minutes while a domestic 7kW wall box can provide a charge of 0-80% in one hour 40 minutes, says Jaguar.
Advanced MHEV technology, available on the four- and six-cylinder diesel engines and featured on the six-cylinder petrol powertrain, uses a Belt integrated Starter Generator (BiSG) to harvest energy usually lost when slowing and braking. This energy is then stored in a separate 48V lithium-ion battery before being intelligently redeployed to assist the engine when accelerating away, as well as delivering a more refined stop/start system.
With MHEV technology, the next-generation 163PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine achieves CO2 emissions from 163g/km and fuel economy of up to 45.4mpg.
The in-line six-cylinder 300PS diesel engine returns fuel economy of up to 38.1mpg and CO2 emissions from 194g/km.
The new diesel engine meets stringent emissions targets, including Euro 6d-Final, thanks to a raft of advanced technologies - series sequential turbos and an advanced after-treatment system – says Jaguar.
For petrol customers, the 400PS 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder engine produces 550Nm of torque and features the latest engine technologies.
An electric supercharger supported by a twin scroll turbocharger and Continuous Variable Valve Lift (CVVL) deliver a strong combination of refined performance and efficiency and is capable of 0-60mph in 5.1 seconds.
Finally, the 2.0-litre four-cylinder 250PS Ingenium petrol engine produces 365Nm of torque, delivering 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds and CO2 emissions from 209g/km with fuel economy of up to 30.4mpg.
All engines are paired with Jaguar’s eight-speed automatic gearbox, which can be controlled using the steering wheel shift paddles for added driver engagement.
Colin Kirkpatrick, chief product engineer at Jaguar, said: “Our next generation PHEV system delivers great fuel efficiency and low running costs, while the all-electric range of up to 33 miles is enough to cover the daily commute for most customers.
“The extensive powertrain choice includes our latest Ingenium petrol and diesel engines which feature advanced technologies and provide the perfect blend of performance, refinement and efficiency.”
All-wheel drive is standard across all F-Pace models and Intelligent Driveline Dynamics provides rear-wheel drive biased performance, with the ability to vary torque to individual axles almost instantly depending on conditions.
The new F-PACE chassis has been updated to support the introduction of the new electrified engines as well as enabling the latest JaguarDrive Control and new Auto Vehicle Hold.
The latest JaguarDrive Control features Comfort, Eco, Rain-Ice-Snow and Dynamic modes, which can be chosen manually by the driver based on the road conditions. The settings, selected through a new rotary dial next to the all-new Drive Selector, adapt the F-PACE’s steering, transmission, throttle and (when specified) Adaptive Dynamics settings.
Auto Vehicle Hold provides added convenience and smoother operation than conventional Automatic Hill Hold, says Jaguar. The new technology holds the brakes for an unlimited period of time when stationary on a gradient, gently releasing the brakes only when the driver depresses the accelerator to drive away.
The F-PACE has an all-new interior with an integrated centrally-mounted 11.4-inch curved-glass HD touchscreen, which provides driver and front passenger control of the new Pivi Pro infotainment system.
The screen is three times brighter and 48% larger than the previous 10-inch screen, and the simplified menu structures allow drivers to access or view up to 90% of common tasks from the homescreen in two taps or less.
To help drivers access vital information quickly, new F-Pace also features a new 12.3-inch HD Interactive Driver Display (standard fit on SE and HSE derivatives) with enhanced graphics and a configurable layout which can show full-screen navigation mapping with turn-by-turn instructions, digital dials, media, contact list or infotainment details.
The new infotainment system features Apple CarPlay as standard and allows customers to connect two phones simultaneously via Bluetooth.
Android Auto and Baidu CarLife are also available as standard depending on market applicability.
Optional wireless device charging with phone signal booster allows occupants to fast charge their smartphone. The system also provides clearer calls through the help of an external aerial.
To enable instantaneous start-up, Pivi Pro has a dedicated power source, so is ready to use as soon as customers get behind the wheel.
The collection of new convenience technologies includes Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) capability, which ensures the performance SUV is always using the latest software.
Pivi Pro connectivity is provided by the latest embedded dual-sim technology with two LTE modems enabling the system to carry out multiple functions at the same time, such as streaming media and downloading SOTA updates, without compromising performance.
Advanced Driver Assistance Technology
The new F-Pace also benefits from a selection of advanced driver assistance technology. This includes Clear Exit Monitor, which alerts both front and rear occupants to the presence of an approaching car or cyclist when exiting the vehicle. Adaptive Cruise Control (standard on HSE) automatically maintains a set distance from the vehicle in front.
Jaguar’s latest 3D Surround Camera technology delivers 3D functionality using the latest camera technology to deliver more detail and a choice of real-time viewing when manoeuvring the vehicle. The selection of settings include Junction View, 3D Perspective View, and ClearSight Plan View.
Customers can enhance their F-PACE with S, SE and HSE specification packs and chose the R-Dynamic specification. Also optional on all models is the Black Exterior Pack.
