2024 Jaguar F-Pace Debuts With 20 Percent More Electric Range For PHEVs

Time flies considering that seven years have passed since the F-Pace was originally launched. Despite its respectable age, Jaguar’s first SUV doesn’t look dated. Even though 2022 isn’t over yet, the stylish high-riding vehicle seems to be rushing its way into the 2024 model year, according to a press release issued today by the automaker owned by Tata Motors. The latest update spans design, technology and hardware as the P400e gets an upgraded battery.

Thanks to a larger 19.2 kWh lithium-ion package, the plug-in hybrid F-Pace will now travel 40 miles (65 kilometers) on electric power in the WLTP cycle, representing an increase of more than 20 percent. Owners can charge the battery to 80 percent in half an hour via a 35-kW DC charge while reaching 100 percent from a 7-kW AC wall box takes two hours and 30 minutes.

Like the other F-Pace versions, the P400e has standard all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. With 398 horsepower and 640 Newton-meters (472 pound-feet) of torque, this electrified SUV takes 5.3 seconds to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) from a stop or 5.0 seconds to 60 mph (96 km /o’clock).

For the 2024MY, the lineup has been simplified to the R-Dynamic S, R-Dynamic SE, R-Dynamic HSE, 400 SPORT, and SVR trim levels, although that depends on the market. Non-R-Dynamic has been discontinued. While some Land Rover products have recently switched to BMW’s 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, the F-Pace SVR has kept the supercharged 5.0-liter V8. It’s built at home in England where JLR also assembles four- and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, some of which feature mild hybrid technology.

Regardless of trim level, all F-Pace SUVs get 19-inch wheels, a digital instrument cluster and the Pivi Pro infotainment system with Alexa voice control as well as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. From the R-Dynamic SE onwards, Jaguar provided glossy black exterior accents as standard. You’ll find them on the side mirror caps, front grille (including rim), window surrounds, and rear badges.

As a refresher, the F-Pace along with all other conventionally powered models are living on borrowed time. Only the I-Pace will survive from 2025 when the British brand will transform into a pure electric car manufacturer. There won’t be any new models until the middle of this decade.
