August 5, 2020, Petaling Jaya – Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia, the official distributor of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles in Malaysia, has introduced the updated Jaguar E-Pace.
The Jaguar E-Pace now comes with more innovative technologies to make it more fuel efficient and provide more comfort and driving reliability.

Jaguar Land Rover claims that the E-Pace is able to complete the century sprint in 8.2 seconds.
Some of the updates of the E-Pace includes Jaguar’s Smart Settings, a self-learning technology that studies the driver’s habits and anticipates their needs to make driving more pleasurable and convenient.
The Smart Settings will recognise the driver via the key fob or the smartphone as he or she approaches the car and adjusts the seat, climate setting and infotainment system based on the driver’s preference.
Over time, the technology will able to pick up more information about the driver’s preferences, such as time, location, weather and behaviour patterns. For example, it can change the media source on a particular day of the week or time of the day.
There is also the Intelligent Phone Reminder function in the Smart Settings, that will let the driver know if they forget their smartphones, while the Predictive Call List will learn the patterns of phone use to cue up its popular contacts at the appropriate time. The Smart Settings can store up to eight profiles, very useful for those owners who share their vehicles.
On top of that the E-Pace is also equipped with a host of active and passive safety technologies and also an all-wheel drive system that ensures the joy, safety and comfort is not compromised no matter the driving conditions.
