British luxury car manufacturer Jaguar has finally revealed the production version of its first electric SUV, the I-Pace. Jaguar has been testing the I-Pace for quite some time, and it has taken four years to build the production version of the electric SUV since the concept model was revealed.
Jaguar states that the overall design of the Jaguar I-Pace is developed using physics. The bonnet is short due to the absence of an engine, and it aids in aerodynamic efficiency. The front fascia of the electric SUV features a sloping bonnet, honeycomb grille, sleek LED headlights and wide air dam.
The Jaguar I-Pace also gets stylish LED DRLs, newly designed alloy wheels and ORVM integrated turn signal lights. The Jaguar I-Pace has been tested in harsh terrain and temperatures ranging from -40 degrees to 40 degrees Celsius. The I-Pace is not branded as an off-roader, but it is capable of water wading up to 500mm.
The interior of the Jaguar I-Pace is spacious with lots of storage space. The interior of the electric SUV is equipped with the same InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system which debuted with the Range Rover Velar.
The Jaguar I-Pace also comes with InControl remote app with Alexa skill. With this feature, the driver will be able to ask Alexa-enabled devices for information such as the SUVs charge level. Apart from that the SUV also features 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, three 12V sockets, six USB ports and one HDMI/HML port.
The Jaguar I-Pace SUV is equipped with two electric motors on both the axles with a combined power output of 395bhp and 696Nm of torque. The electric SUV also gets an all-wheel-drive system and can sprint from 0-100km/h in just 4.5 seconds. The electric motors are placed as low as possible for optimum weight distribution.
Powering the electric motors is a 90kWh lithium-ion battery which delivers a driving range of over 480km. The battery takes 45 minutes to charge up to 80 percent on a 100kW rapid charger.
The production of the Jaguar I-Pace will commence in 2018 at the Magna Steyr manufacturing facility in Austria. It takes just eight hours to build a Jaguar I-Pace at this facility. The deliveries of the electric SUV will begin from July 2018.
DriveSpark's Thoughts On The Jaguar I-Pace
The I-Pace is the first electric SUV from the stable of Jaguar which features similar design elements as the conventional Jaguar's. The I-Pace features technically advanced electric motors with unmatched performance and an excellent driving range. Will the Jaguar I-Pace come to India? Well, it is unlikely to happen at least for the next couple of years.
