THE JAGUAR magazine celebrates the art of performance with exclusive features that inspire sensory excitement, from dynamic driving to seductive design and cutting-edge technology.
In the latest issue of The Jaguar magazine, we tour beautiful Portugal in the game-changing New All-Electric Jaguar I-PACE, and learn what it took to build this truly desirable electric vehicle by interviewing the key players involved in its creation. The themes of cutting-edge innovation continue as we get a first look at a classic E-type with a difference, and explore the latest trends in creative artificial intelligence and smart home technology. Get an insight into the world of high performance through our interviews of Formula E racing driver Nelson Piquet Jr. and tennis star Johanna Konta, and join us for visceral thrills as we hit the Jaguar Ice Academy’s Arctic tracks along with some unusual passengers.

The latest issue introduces our new ‘cub’, the E-PACE compact practical sports car, which is already turning heads on the street. As we commit to electrifying every new Jaguar from 2020, we explore how pushing boundaries on track helps develop our sports cars, from writing motorsport history at Le Mans, to taking on the Nürburgring with the extreme XE SV Project 8 and being at the very cutting edge with the FIA Formula E Championship.
In this issue, we introduce a fresh new addition to the Jaguar family with the launch of the E-PACE. F1 racer Romain Grosjean reveals his passion for Jaguar while the Panasonic Jaguar Racing Team give an insight into their preparations. Plus, we get to grips with the fast-paced sport of drone racing and spend a unique day with the XF Sportbrake.
In this issue we return to top level motorsport but not in a conventional way, and by doing so accelerate the development of electric powertrains. In tandem, we introduce our Jaguar I-PACE Concept vehicle - a revolutionary new model available to reserve now for delivery in 2018.
