Wednesday 10th October, 2018 – The Jaguar I-PACE all-electric SUV has been named as Sunday Times Car of the Year at the inaugural News UK motoring awards. The I-PACE was also named Green Car of the Year, securing its fifth major award since its worldwide reveal in March.
The News UK motoring awards are shortlisted by the motoring experts from News UK’s publications, including the Sunday Times and The Sun. It was these experts that voted Jaguar’s first all-electric car, the I-PACE, as Sunday Times Car of the Year, however it was a public vote that decided the I-PACE’s victory in the Green Car of the Year category.
Rawdon Glover, Jaguar Land Rover UK MD, said: "We’re absolutely overjoyed to see the I-PACE pick up another two major awards in the UK, including Sunday Times Car of the Year. We’ve always said that I-PACE is revolutionary, using technology, design and packaging never before seen in a Jaguar, and we’re extremely grateful that the media and our customers agreewith us.I-PACE is absolutely a sign of things to come from Jaguar, so I’m sure there’s a bright future ahead.”
With a 292-mile range (WLTP), five seats, zero emissions, the I-PACE is both a practical and exhilarating SUV, packed full of the latest innovations.
The I-PACE will be able to achieve a 0-80 percent battery charge in 85-minutes using DC charging (50kW) and offer a range of up to 292 miles on a single charge. Home charging with an approved Jaguar AC wall box (7kW) will achieve the same state of charge in just over ten hours – ideal for overnight charging.
The I-PACE is Jaguar’s first vehicle to include the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, capable of over-the-air software updates, and uses artificial intelligence to adapt to a driver’s personal preferences, ensuring driving and infotainment settings are matched to each individual using the car.
Monday, 1 October 2018: The Jaguar I-PACE has been named 'Best Car' at T3's 2018 Technology Awards.
Graham Wilkins, Chief Product Engineer, was on hand to collect the award: “We are delighted that the Jaguar I-PACE has won this prestigious award. As Jaguar’s first all-electric car, the I-PACE is an exciting new step for us and it’s fantastic to see our innovative technology recognised and celebrated.”
Since the car’s public debut in March this year, the I-PACE has already claimed an array of awards, including AutoExpress New Car of the Year and What Car? Game Changer. This award from T3 demonstrates the ongoing success of the I-PACE and in particular, highlights its impressive advanced technology.
T3 jurors had the following to say on Jaguar's first all-electric vehicle: "Here's a car that almost defies classification, because Jaguar didn't stick to one. Instead it focused on making its first all-electric vehicle into the very best car it could be. With a 300-mile range, 394bhp to all four wheels, and a delectable trim, it doesn't matter if this is an SUV, a sports car or a sedan - it's just great. End of."
Awash with cutting-edge technology, the I-PACE uses Artificial Intelligence algorithms to personalise the car’s driving and interior settings to the individual driver. To maximise driver confidence, the car also calculates range and charging status using the most accurate system we have ever produced, taking into account topography and changing climate conditions amongst other driver inputs. The I-PACE is Jaguar’s first vehicle to include the intuitive Touch Pro Duo infotainment system and can provide over-the-air software updates, to ensure the car remains at the forefront of technology advancement.
