the event demonstrates the agility, precision and performance of the jaguar e-pace, showcasing both its agile, responsive chassis and sports car driveline technology. the five-seat, compact SUV is the newest member of the brand’s SUV family, joining the all-electric 
i-pace concept and the f-pace — which itself launched with a guinness world records setting loop-the-loop back in 2015. the e-pace completed its record-breaking jump at excel in london – one of only a few venues in the UK large enough to accommodate a 160-meter run-up and run-off necessary to complete the leap.
