Jaguar F-Pace Plug-In Hybrid Gets Bigger Battery For More Electric Range

Luxury / Comments

And more upgrades, too.

Jaguar USA revealed its 2023 model year updates in August, but Jaguar UK recently sent out a new model update notice that will likely impact the local market directly. The 2023 Jaguar F-Pace is not a locally manufactured model and is built exclusively in Solihull in the UK.

All F-Pace customers globally will benefit from a more streamlined range. Jag will stop building models without the R-Dynamic package. This will reduce the available trim levels, but each car will get more features as standard. This is not the first time Jaguar has reduced the number of F-Pace derivatives. When it was new, the range consisted of 10 models. These days, only five are available, including the bonkers SVR and the limited edition SVR Edition 1988.

The R-Dynamic model is by far the best, as it comes with a nicer grille, bumper finishers, door cladding, 19-inch alloy wheels, a branded leather steering wheel, and metal treadplates.

As mentioned, all models also benefit from new standard features. Base models get a new TFT Digital Driver Display with a configurable center panel. Jag's Pivo Pro infotainment system is carried over and offers wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, integrated Alexa voice control, and over-the-air software updates.

All US powertrains remain the same, still mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission sending power to an intelligent rear-biased all-wheel-drive system.

So far, the US has been denied access to the F-Pace PHEV, but the P400e powertrain has been upgraded substantially. While it has yet to be confirmed for the US, this plug-in hybrid might be what the F-Pace needs to renew interest.

The P400, available in the US, is equipped with a mild-hybrid turbocharged straight-six, producing 395 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. Instead of a 48-volt battery pack, the P400e has a much larger 19.2-kWh battery pack that allows for an estimated 40-mile electric-only range, although that's based on the WLTP cycle. Power-wise, you're looking at 398 hp and 472 lb-ft, and a 0 to 60 mph sprint time of five seconds dead. Apart from the SVR, it's the quickest model in the range.

Considering the widespread adoption of plug-in hybrids here in the USA, we hope to see this model added to the range shortly.
