The detail with the mother and baby Jaguar are fun. I like the overall design and think it will do well. Vide of the debut is on the homepage:

While I like E-Pace, I think it is priced too high what a CUV. It should be significantly cheaper than F-pace, while it is priced almost identically.

It is a lot cheaper over here - cheaper than the base XE I think. It starts at $48K against the F Pace $74K.

I like the interior (f type style cockpit) and the f type style lights are growing on me. Looks nicer in the video than the stills.

For me the base price is only a starting point. It's the options that pile up. If I spec an E-Pace the way I want, it comes to US$60K. If I similarly spec the F-Pace, the two variants I might consider come to $65K and $71K. Not enough difference to come down on the side of the "baby", unless its handling is vastly better.

Isn't the E-Pace vastly faster than the F-Pace?

I think electric cars are becoming very desirable and command a premium over gassers simply for being "high tech." The more gadgetry the better!

Nevermind, I get the E-Pace and the I-Pace mixed up! D'oh!

The ungainly XYZ-Pace names are driving me bonkers.

Yes, now let me find the keys to my XKR-S GT...

Oops, I didnt buy one of those, but I do have an F-Type S...not the 2014 F Type S which was a supercharged 8 - that's now an F Type R. I mean the F Type S supercharged 6 that is now an F Type R - dynamic - no, not the F Type R, that has the V8 - I mean the R dynamic which has one more word but two less cylinders...

bugger it, I think I'll buy an E Pace. "E" is for electric, right? No, that is the i-Pace, like an iPhone. Oh, OK. So the E Pace looks like an XE, right? No, it looks like an F Type. But wouldnt that be the F Pace? (sigh) No, the F Pace is bigger like an XF...F, get it? E is smaller like the XE. Right, so then the F Type must be a big sportcar, like the XF in size. No (rolls eyes). The F Type is the progression from the E Type. E then F, get it? So the E and the F always mean that it is the cabin size - except when it doesnt.

That isnt very logical.

No, if you want logical, go buy an audi and be bored to death.
