While waiting for new features in 2025, Jaguar is reviewing its existing models in small steps. The F-Pace thus receives some developments, in particular for the rechargeable hybrid variant which exceeds 65 km of electric range.
Last year, Jaguar surprised by announcing the pause of its program of novelties until 2025, date on which the brand will switch to 100% electric. This leaves time to better develop “battery-powered” vehicles, the only one available in the range being the I-Pace. But to continue to bring its rather reduced and aging range to life, Jaguar must also retouch its models over time. Today, it is the F-Pace which adopts some evolutions, in particular for the rechargeable hybrid which gains in autonomy.
New battery and better autonomy
The English SUV, which has celebrated its seventh birthday, indeed incorporates a new 19.2 kWh battery (compared to 17.1 kWh previously) on the P400e plug-in hybrid variant. This allows it to increase its electric range by 20%, from 53 km to 65 km according to the WLTP cycle. Consumption is reduced at the same time, dropping to 37 g/km of CO2 emissions and 1.6 l/100 km. Thanks to a 35 kW fast charger, the battery can recover 80% of its capacity in about 30 minutes. On a more classic 7 kW (alternating current) terminal (which is generally installed at home), it can be fully recharged in 2h30. The power of the P400e variant (404 hp and 640 Nm of torque, 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 s) remains the same.
Minor cosmetic changes
Jaguar is taking advantage of this update to offer the F-Pace new rims from 19 to 22 inches depending on the finish. The catalog has also been greatly reduced, and only the R-Dynamic S, SE, and HSE versions remain, as well as the sporty SVR version. The pack of black inserts (grille, mirror shells, window contours, logos, etc.) is standard from the R-Dynamic SE finish.
On board, some small changes are notable. The new entry-level R-Dynamic S gets new customizable digital speedometers, while all trim levels get the 11.4-inch Pivi Pro multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto wireless integration and Alexa voice control by Amazon .
Marketing and prices
The updated F-Pace is already available to order, with a full configurator on the brand’s website. The entry ticket is set at €69,300 with the 204 hp micro-hybrid D200 diesel, and rises to €115,100 (excluding penalties) for the SVR version equipped with the 550 hp V8. The P400e plug-in hybrid, which already represents one in 10 F-Pace sales worldwide, is offered from €84,700 in the R-Dynamic S finish.
