The new Jaguar I-PACE, a pure Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) built from the ground up, is the electrifying future of Jaguar Cars and the culmination of many years' innovation, design, engineering and technological advancements. The I-Pace heralds a new era of electric motoring where Jaguar doesn't just predict the future, Jaguar creates it…
Performance - Every Jaguar ever built is designed to feel like no other car on the road, and evolving to all-electric power doesn't change this. In fact, the transition offers even more opportunities to hone the dynamic performance for which Jaguar is renowned. A radical exterior design conceals an exquisite interior with SUV levels of practicality, while the fully electric powertrain provides high performance with absolutely zero emissions.
Cutting-edge technologies developed through Formula E Motor Racing (Shared Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motors & Lithium-ion Battery Cell Technology) work seamlessly to produce a car that’s thrilling to drive, where acceleration is virtually instantaneous with no lag or gearshift interruptions. The dual electric motors produce 400PS & 696Nm of torque, taking you from 0-60mph in a rapid 4.5 seconds, a time that’s firmly in Super Car territory!
Handling - For sports car like agility the two electric motors of the I-Pace are axle-mounted, front and rear using concentric single speed transmissions with All-Wheel Drive (AWD) - The motors are positioned as low as possible, and along with the 90kWh battery placed between the axles they provide an extremely low centre of gravity and near perfect weight distribution, greatly enhancing the I-PACE's control and road handling.
Interior Space – Electric architecture defines the five-seater SUV’s interior character as the front seats are placed further forward than is usual. This creates more space between the front and rear seats, giving rear seat passengers added legroom and all passengers will enjoy an immediate sense of engagement with the car thanks to form-fitting sport seats - Throughout the spacious interior, beautiful, handcrafted touches reaffirm the cars luxury with rich, solid finishers all around while fine twin-needle stitching adds tailored sophistication. Due to the positioning of the 90kWh battery an added storage bonus is achieved by creating a stowage compartment under the bonnet in lieu of the absent fuel tank, with an additional 27 litres of space.
Technology – The Jaguar I-PACE is the world's smartest five-seater sports car, and moreover, is easy to live with and connected like never before as ‘InControl’ technologies seamlessly connect you to your car and the outside world - There's Connect Pro with Smart Settings to learn your preferences, and Pro Services, perfect for finding charging stations on the move. Smartphone Pack makes it easy to use selective apps on the Touchscreen, while Remote lets you securely interact with your car from your smartphone.
At the heart of I-PACE is a 'floating' centre console containing the latest infotainment system and the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system makes controlling all the car's features, and your connected devices, incredibly simple, comprising of a 10" Touchscreen integrated into the dashboard and a lower 5" Touchscreen with multi-function dynamic dials.
A single full battery charge on the Jaguar I-Pace provides a driving range of up to 292 miles on the WLTP cycle, ample to cover the average weekly commute of 186 miles. However, Jaguar recognise that it takes more than just zero emissions to drive sustainable environmental change through motoring habits. That's why from the earliest stages of the I-PACE's development Jaguar has established a comprehensive plan to meet the ‘End of Life Vehicle Directive’ (ELV) - For peace of mind the 90kWh battery comes with a generous 8 year or 100,000 miles warranty. The new Jaguar I-PACE is available to test drive in South Wales, please contact us here at Sinclair Jaguar in Swansea to find out more.
