Jaguar reveals the electric I-Pace SUV ahead of the Geneva Motor Show
Jaguar’s first all-electric SUV is unveiled, promising a 298-mile range, lots of power, and all-wheel drive performance
Instead, the new car has two electric motors that combine to give 400 horsepower, which will rocket the I-Pace to 60mph from standstill in just 4.5 seconds. With battery technology improving all the time, Jaguar says the I-Pace will have a range of up to 298 miles on a single charge.
Speaking of charging, the lithium-ion battery – which has an eight-year warranty – should zip up to 80% of its full charge in 85 minutes, using a public 50kW charger, while a 30-minute charge will give a range of around 80 miles.
Other features include a connection to Amazon’s Alexa, which means you can ask your Alexa unit about the car when you’re not in, such as: Is it locked? How much range is left?
Three versions are available – S, SE and HSE – as well as a First Edition for early adopters. The I-Pace will start at £63,495, although this price doesn’t take into account government incentives for going electric.
