Jaguar I-Pace finally unveiled

03 March 2018

As part of the car's promotional material Jaguar pitted the I-Pace against the Tesla Model X 75D and 100D.

The official release was streamed on March 1st, and proved that a long wait paid off. The biggest is probably going to be the number of seats: Jaguar is only offering the I-PACE as a five-seater, whereas you can get the Model X in five, six, or seven seat configurations.

The I-Pace powertrain provides 400PS of output and 696Nm of torque, and its all wheel drive system helps it in accelerating from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds (0-60mph in 4.5 seconds). With a full charged battery, the I-PACE is capable of driving up to 240 miles according to Jaguar.

Of course, the I-Pace did not face the P100D which would have smoked it with its 0-60mph time of 2.9 seconds, but that's not a sensible comparison given the fact the P100D costs nearly twice as much. The 90kWh lithium-ion battery pack takes 45 minutes to charge from 0-80 per cent using a 100kW rapid charger, or 10 hours using a 7kW AC wallbox.

Elsewhere, there's a battery pre-conditioning system which varies the temperature when plugged in, in order to maximise the range.

Jaguar have announced that the I-PACE will be fully compatible with 100kW chargers which look set to become the industry standard in the United Kingdom at least.

USA pricing for the I-PACE hasn't been confirmed yet, but United Kingdom pricing has. Amazon Alexa Still is also loaded into the MMI, a world exclusive.

I-Pace allows a 0 to 60 miles per hour sprint in 4.5 seconds.

The I-PACE looks like Jaguar's best attempt to do a Tesla impression in more ways than the electric powertrain, however: The automaker is also promising over-the-air updates for the vehicle, and connected controls that tie in to a mobile app for your phone, including charging status information. The all-electric vehicle comes with a sloping bonnet, sleek LED headlamps, honeycomb pattern grille and a wide central airdam.

The car's interior includes a control system using touchscreens, which uses artificial intelligence to identify drivers' preferences. The brand's trademark design language is characterized by the grille, sloping roofline (a panoramic glass roof is standard) and sweeping window frames.

It seems the I-Pace will be roomy, offering 656 litres of boot space which grows to 1453 litres with the back seats folded down.

The electro-themed camouflage has come off the new 2019 Jaguar I-Pace today, ahead of an Australian debut in October this year - with a $119,000 price tag to match its enviro-chic image.
