The first electric car in the history of the British brand will hit the market in 2018. It should be all-wheel drive crossover, and pre-production prototype can be showed this autumn! It is possible that new model will be called E-Pace: it already has a patent, although initially it was assumed that it will be the name of a traditional SUV, the younger brother of model F-Pace. However, if you focus exclusively on the size, it is really like that: photo spies caught the car in camouflage during testing.

The new crossover will be built on the basis of Land Rover EV chassis, which was introduced last year. Its main feature – the all-aluminum body and the battery placed in the floor, which plays the role of the power element of the body. The novelty will not have similar details with existing models. By as for dimensions of the model, it will essentially concede to crossover F-Pace. Technical characteristics of the power plant have not yet been published, but according to preliminary data, the crossover on a single charge can drive about 500 kilometers.
