Jaguar is making ready its new, highly anticipated fully electric car coming in 2018 - the I-Pace Concept.
Land Rover sub brand Jaguar is bringing its first fully electric car, the i-Pace to the market next year with the new car joining as the sixth model in the Jaguar line-up. The I-Pace was first previewed at the LA Motor Show last year in November and that was followed up by a release at the Geneva Motor Show. The I-Pace is the Jaguar model answering to zero emission vehicle technology with its main rivals being the new Tesla and BMW ‘i’ models.
What is the i-Pace Concept?
The I-Pace is a five-seater electric sports car that drives fast, looks good and offers great space, and will be coming to the UK in 2018.
Design and styling
Dimension wise - the -Pace is 4680mm long and 1890mm wide which means 66mm smaller than the similarly designed F-Pace model. There will also be a 530 litre-boot space which is quite decent and spacious in comparison to the I-Pace’s rivals. The front side of the car is instantly recognisable as a Jaguar - It boasts a sporty shape with flush door handles, aerodynamic bonnet scoop and bold air ducts which give a more aggressive look.
The interior initially looks very sporty, luxurious and has a longer wheelbase which means more space inside. The dashboard is flanked by three screens - a 12-inch HD screen to display instruments, another 12-inch touchscreen on the floating centre console and a smaller 5.5-inch touchscreen below.
“Fast, spacious and drives up to 310 miles on a single charge.”
The i-Pace already sounds promising and will also come with all-wheel drive technology helping the I-Pace go 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 4 seconds thanks to its new lightweight technology. The I-Pace will include two electric motors together producing 400PS of power and will charge up to 80% charge in 90 minutes using a 50kW DC rapid charger and can travel up to 310 miles on a single charge.
Jaguar cars are famous for their engines, technology and luxurious performance and the I-Pace seems to be taking on the main trademarks of the brand.
Pricing and release date:
There is no official pricing announced but we would expect it to go for around £60,000. The car will be revealed in late 2017 and be on the road in the second half of 2018.
We will inform with you with the more specification details once we know more nearer its launch date.
