SUV’S have in recent times been a savior for Jaguar here with the E-Pace and F-Pace SUV’s now their best–selling vehicles – as their product PR manager James Scrimshaw suggested this week’ we’ve changed a lot in two year – we were the saloon and sports car company and we’ve really changed. The electric I-Pace will further improve Jaguar SUV sales – arriving in four automatic models from S at $119,000 to the HSE at 140,800 to the first edition At $159,700.
