Scheduled for its public debut at Geneva, Jaguar has showcased the I-Pace electric SUV.
Ready for production, Jaguar has revealed their first ever all-electric SUV. Though it's extremely difficult to differentiate the concept that was exhibited from the final production version, the new Jaguar I-Pace looks stunning nonetheless, and perhaps because of that very reason.
Since their first announcement of their plan for an electric SUV, they’ve been promising, which continued throughout its development process, that it will have both genuine performance and stunning look. With the final production car revealed, one can safely say that Jaguar has held true to that promise.
Under its beautiful and unmistakably elegant shell is a 90kWh battery capable of travelling around 480km on a single charge. The twin electric motors – which send power to all four wheels – are capable of generating a combined maximum output of 394bhp and 696Nm of torque. Thus delivering 0 – 100km/h in just 4.5 seconds. As for charging the batteries, a 30-minute charge allows 128kms range, while it takes 85 minutes to charge from 0 – 80% based on 50kW chargers. The I-Pace will also be compatible with 100kW chargers, which will enable it to charge from 0 to 80% in 40 minutes.
In addition to its electric powertrain, Jaguar has equipped the I-Pace with clever air-suspension as standard, which comes with an auto-leveling feature, allowing the car to remain planted on the road as much as possible. The I-Pace also utilises artificial intelligence to enhance the driving experience, as the self-learning AI system recognises the driver's traits and works to complement them with its suite of active suspension dynamics.
Jaguar will debut the I-Pace publicly at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, when prices will also be released before the car reaches its targeted markets in the second half of the year.
