Updates also introduced to the entire range of E-PACE models include the certification of E-PACE D150 FWD Manual to the RDE2 emissions standard, resulting in a first-year excise duty savings of £320 (RM1,725) and a reduction of Benefit In Kind taxation by 4%.
With Chequered Flag exterior side badging and 19-inch Satin Dark Grey wheels, the special edition vehicle is available in three colours – Photon Red, exclusive to this model, alongside Corris Grey and Yulong White. Inside, there are prominent Chequered Flag treadplates, while the Ebony Grained Leather interior with red stitching reinforces the vehicle’s premium feel.
The special edition comes with a comprehensive list of standard features. Inside, this includes 10-way heated front seats, a panoramic roof, heated steering wheel and a 12.3-inch TFT Interactive Driver Display, alongside design enhancements such as an R-Dynamic branded steering wheel, black aluminium gearshift paddles and an Ebony Morzine headliner.
Chequered Flag’s exterior features R-Dynamic body-coloured bumpers, twin tailpipes and LED headlamps with signature J-blade, in addition to a Black Exterior Pack. A powered tailgate and keyless entry add further convenience.
Connectivity is enhanced with the introduction of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. By mirroring mobile device to the central 10-inch Touch Pro screen, it allows drivers to use their favourite apps safely on the move.
Customers have a choice of four powertrains on the Chequered Flag model. There are 150PS and 180PS diesel AWD automatic derivatives, as well as 200PS and 249PS petrol AWD automatic variants available.
As with all E-PACE models, Chequered Flag is available with Smart Settings, Jaguar’s self-learning technology. This system uses AI to learn drivers’ habits over time to anticipate their needs and serve up key functionality at the right time. This includes adjusting the seat, climate and infotainment based on individual preferences, the car recognising each driver by their key fob or smartphone Bluetooth signal as they approach.
The E-PACE is available with Adaptive Dynamics, offering improved handling response, body control and ride. Monitoring vehicle movements every two milliseconds and calculating the required damping force every 10 milliseconds, this allows the vehicle to respond instantly to driver inputs and road surface changes, providing greater control and minimising body roll.
Owners can add to or personalise their E-PACE with a range of Jaguar accessories. This includes a number of popular versatility and practicality features, in addition to the new Pet Packs, introduced to ensure pets can travel safely and in comfort.
The Jaguar E-PACE Chequered Flag special edition is available to order in Britain, priced from £40,050 (RM216,000).
