JAGUAR CHARGES AHEAD WITH GLOBAL REVEAL OF THEIR FIRST FULLY ELECTRIC PRODUCTION CAR

VNR

 

Jaguar have globally revealed the electric vehicle drivers have been waiting for – the new Jaguar I-PACE. 

The British automaker revealed their first fully electric vehicle during a live global broadcast in Graz, Austria, which was presented by recent Brits host, Jack Whitehall and automotive journalist, Jonny Smith.

 

Clean, safe and smart, the I-PACE delivers sustainable sports car performance, next-generation artificial intelligence (AI) technology and five-seat SUV practicality to place Jaguar at the forefront of the EV revolution.

 

With a state-of-the-art 90kWh Lithium-ion battery, the I-PACE delivers a range of 480km [WLTP]. Owners will be able to achieve a 0-80 per cent battery charge in just 45 minutes, with 15 minutes charge giving 100km range, using a 100kW DC charger. Home charging with an AC wall box (7kW) will achieve the same state of charge in just over ten hours – ideal for overnight charging.

 

Ian Hoban, Jaguar Vehicle Line Director commented: “We set out with a clean sheet approach to harness new battery electric technology with an architecture engineered from the outset to optimise EV performance, aerodynamics and interior space. The result is the I-PACE – a true Jaguar and an electric dream come true.

 

“For I-PACE customers – fuel stations are a thing of the past, after overnight charging they’ll wake up every morning with a ‘full tank of fuel’!”

 

The high torque density and high-energy efficiency characteristics of the motors deliver sports car performance, launching the I-PACE from a standing start to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds.

 

I-PACE introduces the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system to Jaguar. Utilising an innovative combination of touchscreens, capacitive sensors and tactile physical controls, Touch Pro Duo is intuitive to use. I-PACE will also launch an Amazon Alexa Skill. This means owners will be able to ask an Alexa enabled device for information held in the Jaguar InControl Remote app. For example: Is my car locked? What is the charging level? Do I have enough range to get to work?

 

The Jaguar I-PACE is available to order from the 1st March 2018.
