ANALYSIS - Jaguar scores a bullseye with E-Pace

28 February 2018

This is the first Jaguar to have a front-wheel drive-based architecture since production of the X-Type ended in 2009. There is neither a V6 nor a V8. The platform is steel not aluminium. It's only 4,395mm long. And this first attempt at a BMW X1 rival is close to being as great to drive as rear-wheel drive Jags.


Is Jaguar now an SUV oriented brand too?

27 February 2018

This piece was initially prompted by the appearance of the new Volvo V60, to universal acclaim, which brought a wistful thought from me that it was a shame that Jaguar doesn’t have a wagon version of its XE as a competitor. From the initial pictures the V60 appears to be a fantastic looking car with all the usual virtues that Volvo-ness brings to the estate (wagon) genre. It looks unmistakably like its V90 sibling or as colleague Glenn Brooks put it in the office last week, "Honey, I’ve shrunk the V90."

Q&A with Prodrive

8 October 2014

Power electronics is being brought into sharp focus as OEMs look to improve the efficiency of electric and hybrid cars. Many of the energy losses in such systems occur in power electronic systems (such as DC-DC converters) which convert the high voltages from the batteries to the correct levels for the various systems in the car. Prodrive are exploring the use of silicon carbide based components which can operate at much higher temperatures and efficiencies.
