Jul 19.17 Magnesium Key Element in New Jaguar E-PACE
Meet the newest member of Jaguar’s PACE family of SUVs:
the new E-PACE--joining Jaguar’s successful F-PACE performance crossover and the all-electric I-PACE Concept--is going light with magnesium, ultra-high-strength steels, lightweight aluminum, and advanced composites for a lean, aerodynamically efficient first entry
into the competitive small-SUV segment. (A very hot market, indeed:
crossovers and SUVs grew to almost 29 percent of all sales globally in 2016.)

The 2018 E-PACE’s cross car-beam structure, which supports the instrument panel, is a precise, lightweight magnesium casting that the company says “makes a key contribution to the tight tolerances and high quality of the car’s interior.”

The automaker said its materials “create(s) a compact SUV capable of delivering Jaguar dynamics and meeting global safety standards.”
“Throughout the vehicle body, the intelligent use of lightweight materials delivers the optimum balance of stiffness, strength and weight,” Jaguar noted.

Using aluminum saves up to 22 pounds on the hood, 6.6 pounds on the front fenders and 13.2 pounds on the roof panel compared to equivalent steel parts, according to Jaguar.

The E-PACE features an aluminum “gesture” tailgate (weighing in at 33 pounds lighter than a conventional steel assembly) produced with a Jaguar-pioneered riveting/bonding process and laser welding on certain joints. The tailgate has sensors positioned at each side of the rear bumper so drivers can open and close it simply by raising a foot.

The new five-passenger will be available in two different 2.0-liter turbocharged versions, with engine options producing up to 296 hp.
The fastest models are reported to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds, with a top speed of 155 mph.
Base priced at an estimated U.S.$38,600; on sale in the U.S. in early 2018 following a late-2017 UK launch.
