New Jaguar aims for the Audi Q3's jugular

Tata Motors' Jaguar has issued 'teaser' photos of the compact performance Jaguar E-Pace SUV it will reveal on 13 July. 

"Joining Jaguar's Pace family of performance SUVs, the E-Pace follows on from the successful F-Pace, which helped boost Jaguar's sales by 83% last year, and the all-electric I-Pace concept which will go into production in 2018," the automaker said in a statement. 

Ian Callum, Jaguar's director of design, said: "The combination of sports car looks with Jaguar performance will ensure that the E-Pace stands out. Every Jaguar is designed to excite the senses, and we think E-Pace will do just that, albeit with its own individual character." 

The automaker said the new SUV has "sports car-derived AWD technology and an all-Ingenium line-up of petrol and diesel engines, as well as a suite of connected technology and safety features". 

Magna Steyr is contracted to build the I-Pace EV.

Jaguar has indicated prices will start at GBP28,500.
