The Jaguar I-PACE is now on sale, starting from £63,495. You can choose from the I-PACE S, SE, HSE and First Edition.
Jaguar's first electric vehicle will deliver 700Nm instant torque, 400PS and 0-60mph in around 4 seconds. Next generation technology and future-facing design combine to deliver a zero vehicle emissions driving experience that remains unmistakably Jaguar.
The I-PACE, has already won the first-ever all-electric car award 2018, with Auto Express, with Auto Express judges noting, 'It offers performance that would humble some sports cars, practicality to shame some SUVs and the premium image many buyers seek.'
Watch our CEO Andy Bruce test drive the new All-Electric I-PACE below.
The I‑PACE powertrain provides 400PS and 696Nm of usable instant torque. With built-in all-wheel-drive traction, I‑PACE accelerates from 0‑60mph in 4.5 seconds.
I‑PACE’s highly efficient heat pump harvests heat from the outside air and electronic components of the vehicle. The warmth is transferred to the cabin via the heating and ventilation system, reducing the power demand from the battery while maximising range.
To give the optimum balance between cooling and aerodynamics, Active Vanes open when cooling of the battery is required, but close when not needed to smooth airflow.
I‑PACE delivers all-surface, all-weather drivability. Power and torque response is immediate and the electric motors can adapt independently to the driver’s inputs, road surface conditions and available grip.
Drawing on our unrivalled expertise with all-wheel drive systems, optional Adaptive Surface Response (AdSR) constantly monitors the car's environment and adjusts the appropriate motor and brake settings. Once selected, AdSR works at all speeds to support you in adverse weather and across challenging surfaces. AdSR is available on cars fitted with Active Air Suspension and Adaptive Dynamics.
To maximise range, I‑PACE uses an Enhanced Brake Regeneration system that recuperates almost all braking energy. Once you lift your foot off the accelerator pedal, the system provides regenerative braking, comfortably slowing I‑PACE while converting the power generated to optimise the battery’s range.
From the pronounced front wheel arches to the rear diffuser, every element of I‑PACE’s aerodynamic design allows the car to slice cleanly through the air for optimised range and stability.
The bold grille curves inwards – reducing drag by channelling air through the bonnet scoop and out, where it passes over a roofline that is curved for maximum efficiency.
The diffuser under the rear bumper helps channel and smooth the airflow from under I-PACE's flat underfloor tray. Squared off corners on the rear bodywork encourage air to detach cleanly from the vehicle, minimising the pressure differences that cause drag.
Ensuring that airflow passes smoothly around the entire exterior, deployable door handles sit flush with the car’s sides.
The driver’s cabin sits low with sweeping fenders that create a sense of movement and complement the body’s fast, tapering waistline.
For even greater visibility and safety at night, choose Adaptive Matrix LED headlights. This system maintains continuous use of the high beam but automatically adjusts the shape of the beam to avoid dazzling oncoming vehicles. This feature is standard with HSE Specification Pack
I‑PACE’s sleek rear tail lights are also LED. When Adaptive Matrix LED headlights are selected, the tail lights feature the same dramatic Animated Directional Indicators as the headlights.
I‑PACE offers a choice wheels in sizes 18”, 20” and 22” – all perfectly complement I‑PACE’s revolutionary looks.
Throughout the interior, beautiful, handcrafted touches reaffirm the cabin’s luxury atmosphere. Rich, solid finishers surround you and fine twin-needle stitching adds tailored sophistication. At night, crisp white illumination accentuates the exquisite details.
I‑PACE features a floating centre console at the heart of the cabin. This unique, cantilevered design feature gives you an immediate sense of I‑PACE’s space the moment you open the door.
Available in a range of materials and colours, I‑PACE’s expertly designed sport seats hold and support through every turn. Heating and cooling are available for greater comfort.
The cabin is a sanctuary from the outside world. For outstanding refinement, sophisticated motor encapsulation reduces sound while the sharp exterior design minimises wind noise.
I‑PACE offers a refined, quiet drive. To maintain the calm interior, I‑PACE features acoustic laminated glass on the front windows and windscreen, reducing noise entering the cabin from outside.
Pre-heat or pre-cool I‑PACE's interior using the Touchscreen or, remotely, via the smartphone app to ensure the vehicle is at your desired temperature before you enter. By pre-conditioning I‑PACE while it charges, the ideal temperature is achieved without using power from the battery, preserving the vehicle's range.
I‑PACE offers an ionisation system that improves air quality. Optional Cabin Air Ionisation neutralises odours as well as minimising bacteria and pollution for a more pleasant and healthy in-car environment.
