Jaguar I-PACE Features & Release Date of Production Version
Jaguar signaled the start of a new era with the unveiling of the I-PACE concept — a technologically advanced all-electric SUV. In addition to its eco-friendly credentials, the new I-PACE offers the exceptional level of performance and luxury that Jaguar has been renowned for over its illustrious history, along with smart technology and high-level utility. Read more for information on its features and the release date of the production version.
All-Electric Powertrain of Jaguar I-PACE
The new I-PACE offers a radically different alternative to a combustion-engineered SUV. It comes with a state-of-the-art electric propulsion system, designed and developed by Jaguar Land Rover for optimum performance and efficiency. It features two, extremely efficient, synchronous permanent magnet motors arranged concentrically with the transmission to make them as compact as possible. Integrated into the front and rear axles, the two electric motors deliver 516 lb-ft of instant torque, 400 horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of only four seconds.
Jaguar I-PACE Range
Consumers who are hesitant to buy an electric car often cite “range anxiety” as a drawback, but the I-PACE helps alleviate that with a range greater than 220 miles on a single change. The range of the I-PACE is enabled through its high-tech lithium-ion battery, which has a capacity of 90 kWh. It can achieve 80% charge in 90 minutes with a 50kW DC rapid charger.
Aerodynamic Design and Premium Features of I-PACE
Jaguar gave the I-PACE a very distinctive and aerodynamic design. It features an aerodynamic hood scoop, flush door handles and bold air ducts, which maximizes the electric SUV’s range and helps it slice efficiently through the air. The 5-seater cabin is both luxurious and sporty, thanks to exquisite materials and advanced technology, including four beautiful displays — two infotainment touchscreens in the center console, a vehicle information display behind the steering wheel and a Head-Up Display that discretely displays key information on the vehicle’s windshield. Also, the I-PACE’s floating center console and panoramic roof combine to create a light and airy interior that highlights the exceptional interior package.
When will a production version of the Jaguar I-PACE be released?
While Jaguar has yet to announce an official release date, a production version of the electric SUV will be revealed next year, with a release slated for the 2nd half of 2018. In the meanwhile, consumers can register with Jaguar to be one of the first I-PACE owners.
