I’m sorry Jaguar, but I still can’t believe you decided to unveil the brand spanking new E-Pace while I was away. I’m not happy about this at all.

Ok, fair enough. Yes, I was on a Novalja beach in Croatia, lapping up the sun and drinking Tequila sunrise cocktails. Yes, I was partying on Zcre Beach with thousands of women running around in bikinis during the festival season. But the truth is… I really wanted to be at the unveiling of the E-Pace amongst the stunts and celebs and of course the car itself.

The Jaguar E-PACE is the newest member of Jaguar’s SUV family and is a five-seat compact SUV that packs the design and performance of a Jaguar sports car into a spacious, practical and connected all-wheel-drive vehicle. The Jaguar E-Pace follows on from Jaguar’s first all-electric SUV, the I-PACE Concept and the World Car of the Year-winning F-PACE performance SUV.

Basically, the Jaguar E-Pace has a lot to live up too, but judging by the looks and the design, the E-Pace might be a category winner within its own class.

The Unveiling

Then came the unveiling of the E-PACE and the celebrity attendance and the E-PACE roll stunt which I cannot believe I missed. Sienna Miller, Jaime Winston, Winnie Harlow, David Gandy, Vicky McClure, Singer Raye Nick Grimshaw, Pete Tong (who you can catch in Hi Ibiza, V Festival and Blue Marlin Ibiza) and even my old boss from waaaaay back in the day, Editor of GQ Magazine, Dylon Jones (who probably doesn’t even remember me now).

I’ll be personally reviewing the E-PACE as soon as I get my hands on one, which should be very early in the new year. Until then, I’ll leave you with the images from the E-PACE roll, as stunt driver Terry Grant set a new Guinness World Record, which will probably blow your mind.

And if you want further information on the E-PACE, all you need to do is to head on over to where you can explore, the galleries, the videos, the tech and even place your order.
