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.

T he Foreword JAGUAR CUSTOMER CONTACT MANAGER EMA FORSTER EXPLAINS WHY THE LESSONS OF HISTORY ARE OFTEN THE GREATEST SOURCE OF INSPIRATION WHEN SHAPING THE FUTURE What links the reborn E-Types emerging from Jaguar’s new dedicated Classic Works facility in Coventry with the new E-PACE sports compact SUV? What do the D-types which dominated the world’s greatest race sixty years ago share with today’s Jaguar I-TYPE Formula E electric race cars? And what does the fire-breathing XE SV Project 8 - the most extreme performance Jaguar we’ve ever made - have in common with our I-PACE Concept, our first all-electric five-seater sports car? They all share that iconic Jaguar badge on the nose, of course. And you’ll find them all in issue 03 of The Jaguar magazine, to which it’s my privilege to welcome you. But links between the incredibly diverse range of Jaguars you’ll read about here run far deeper than that. Those reborn Jaguar icons might look fabulously retro now: perfect pieces of period design. But see them as Jaguar customers like you saw them when they were new. Cars like the E-Type and the first XJ saloon were turning points in automotive history. They were groundbreaking, and the E-Type in particular reflected the spirit of its times. That relentless modernity also links our historic cars to our current range, and provides one common thread to a Jaguar line-up which is more varied than ever before. Our race cars of the 1950s pioneered engineering advances which influenced our road cars. In the same way our Formula E racing team is pioneering a new form of motorsport, and that technology and expertise flows into our road cars. World-class design has always made our cars beautiful. But Jaguar has always married that visual grace, innovative engineering and our signature performance and dynamics in a package that our customers need. So Jaguars weren’t just goodlooking: they were usable too. That same commitment to understanding changing needs of modern customers led us to create the F-PACE and E-PACE SUVs, and soon a fully electric Jaguar. The fact that our F-PACE won both the World Car of the Year Award and the World Car Design of the Year Award shows that we are remaining true to the essence of Jaguar, even as the shape of Jaguar changes. And as the Jaguar range grows, it becomes relevant to even more potential customers. We drive the new E-PACE for the first time in this issue, for those of you who already want to order the car the day it finally arrives can’t come quickly enough. Many E-PACE drivers will be new to Jaguar. We already want to extend a special welcome to those customers from us here at Jaguar, and on behalf of the longstanding marque enthusiasts you’re joining. Your new car is part of an amazing bigger picture, as we hope this issue shows. Ema Forster Customer Contact Programme Senior Manager PHOTOGRAPHY: HANNAH SMILES 6 THE JAGUAR
