The I-Pace is likely to be launched with a 90kWh battery pack, which has a power output of 394bhp and gives it a driving range of 470km as per the WLTP cycle. Jaguar commenced bookings for the I-Pace back in November 2020.
After Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar is all set to enter into the electric vehicle space, with the all-new I-Pace. The British marquee first took wraps off the I-Pace at the Geneva Motor Show in 2018. Since then, the car has been awarded several accolades, including the coveted World Car of the Year (WCOTY) and the World Car Green Car of the Year. Now, Jaguar is all set to bring in the new I-Pace in India on 9th March. Bookings for the electric vehicle already commenced in November 2020.
Just like in international markets, Jaguar is also likely to bring the I-Pace to India in three variants – S, SE, and HSE. Powering the car is a 90kWh Lithium-ion battery pack, which works in union with two electric motors to make 394bhp and 696Nm. With such power on tap, the I-Pace claims to reach the 100lm/h from a standstill in just 4.8 seconds – it's faster than the Porsche 718 Cayman with the 2.0-litre turbo petrol motor. Jaguar claims that the I-Pace can be fully charged from zero battery in 8.5 hours. When the battery is fully charged, the car can be driven for a maximum of 470kms.
Jaguar has announced a complimentary 5-year service package, including Roadside Assistance (RSA), for the I-Pace. Additionally, the luxury carmaker will also provide a 7.4kW wall-mounted AC charger to all its customers. Jaguar offers a warranty of 8-years/1,60,000km for the battery pack. When launched, the Jaguar I-Pace will compete against the Mercedes-Benz EQC. Audi was also expected to bring in the e-tron to India last year, but the plans seem to have been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
