The British firm says it has built more than 150 prototypes during a 25-month test programme for the car, which sits on the same LR-MS platform as the Land Rover Discovery Sport. The test programme involved more than 120,000 hours of running across four continents.
The test programme has included more than 400 laps of the Nurburging Nordschleife in Germany, along with extensive running on the Nardo Ring high-speed test track in Italy. The E-Pace has also been run in the Arctic Circle, the Middle East and China. One of the pictures released by Jaguar also shows the E-Pace running at the Walter Arena off-road complex in south Wales.
