Jaguar Unveils New I-Pace Electric SUV


With a full suite of technology and goodness, Jaguar has unveiled its I-Pace electric SUV with a fun video featuring two nine-year-olds giving a tour of the car to comedian Jack Whitehall.

A documentary, titled ‘Fully Charged’ aired at the end of the webcast, giving a behind-the-scenes insight into the creators of the Jaguar I-PACE.

With a 432 pouch cell, 90kWh, lithium-ion battery pack, the I-PACE delivers an estimated range of 240 miles. Owners will be able to achieve a 0-80 percent battery charge in around 40 minutes using publicly available 100kW DC rapid charging facilities. Home charging with a 230V/32A AC wall box (7kW) will achieve the same state of charge (0-80 percent) in just over ten hours – ideal for overnight charging.

Two Jaguar-designed concentric electric motors – which feature driveshafts passing through the motors themselves for compactness – are placed at each axle. These give the I-Pace an expected speed of 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.

The Jaguar I-Pace will enter the market in the second half of 2018 as a 2019 model.
