No longer goodbye in the past, an SUV vary replace would have interested in higher mpg for the diesel, a bit of extra efficiency from the petrol flagship, and perhaps a worth reduce should you had been fortunate. Issues are somewhat other now, with the large draw of Jaguar’s newest F-Tempo being the rise in electrical vary of the plug-in hybrid. With excellent explanation why, too – the P400e, in spite of costing £60k, is alleged to account for greater than 20 according to cent of UK F-Tempo gross sales. Extra vary ought to extend that quantity. Within the Netherlands, Jag reckons the plug-in may just make up 98 according to cent of the gross sales….
To the vital numbers, then. Due to a larger, 19.2kWh lithium-ion battery pack, with 9 modules as an alternative of 8, WLTP electric-only vary for the P400e has larger from 33 miles to 40, which doesn’t sound a lot, however is a rise of greater than 20 according to cent. And who wouldn’t need extra electrical operating? The larger battery advantages gas intake and CO2, as well as, with the ones now rated at 176mpg and 37g/km respectively. That suggests a benefit-in-kind development as neatly, now 8 according to cent as an alternative of 12. The two.0-litre-plus-battery powertrain supplies not more energy for the 2024 style yr, even though with 404hp and 472lb feet, plus a 0-62mph time of five.0 seconds, it’s arduous to believe many shoppers feeling short-changed. The remainder of the F-Tempo engine lineup stays unchanged, with consumers introduced a couple of two.0-litre, four-cylinder engines (a 204hp gentle hybrid diesel and 250hp petrol), a three.0-litre directly six duo (the 300hp diesel and 400hp petrol) plus, after all, the rip-snorting 550hp SVR. We don’t understand how the V8 has made it this a long way, however all of us will have to be more than happy that it has.
The trim ranges on be offering for every engine had been tweaked for the newest revision, the variability now made from R-Dynamic S, R-Dynamic SE Black, R-Dynamic HSE Black, 400 Game (your best option for the directly six petrol) and SVR. Which sounds an terrible lot like creating a Vary Rover of the F-Tempo, as much as and together with an enhanced, same old Black Pack – now at the replicate caps, badges, window surrounds, grille, and grille surrounds – for each and every style with the exception of the R-Dynamic S. Buyer is all the time proper, in any case. Wheels get started at a 19-inch for the S, then 20s for the SE, 21s for the Black and a solid 22 for the 400 Game. All fashions now have the TFT Virtual Motive force Show, plus Alexa or even what3words incorporated within the Pivi Professional. So completely no excuses for purchasing misplaced now.
Jaguar MD Philip Koehn stated: “As we make development to reimagine Jaguar to an all-electric luxurious logo by way of 2025, we’ve got been curating our current merchandise by way of providing richer and extra fascinating specs. The primary nameplate to obtain this alteration was once F-Sort as we transfer in opposition to 2023 and have fun 75 years of Jaguar sports activities automobiles. We now transfer to F-Tempo, an SUV that gives an unrivalled stability of experience, dealing with, refinement and comfort.
“Through expanding the variability of the P400e plug-in electrical hybrid by way of greater than 20 according to cent, it turns into an much more sexy aggregate of efficiency, potency and zero-tailpipe emissions riding capacity, and that’s one thing we’re very pleased with.”
The brand new F-Tempo line up begins at £48,660 for the R-Dynamic S 2.0-litre diesel; the an identical 2.0-litre petrol is £52,415. The three.0-litre diesel is obtainable solely as an R-Dynamic SE Black (£60,275), or £63,970 R-Dynamic HSE Black, and the P400 Game is £69,280. The P400e F-Paces start at £60,985, with the R-Dynamic SE Black at £65,715 and the R-Dynamic HSE Black at £69,335. The SVR, after all, tops the MY24 vary, at £84,940. But it surely’s conceivable to spend an terrible lot not up to that to get a V8 F-Tempo…
