Jaguar I-PACE Wins Three Major UK Tech Awards In 2018
At the end of 2018, the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE made a clean sweep of awards at major UK tech publications, having been named ‘Best Car’ by Stuff Magazine, the best-selling gadget magazine. The I-PACE had already received accolades from T3 (Best Car) and Pocket-lint (Best Car) during 2018, along with ‘German Car of the Year and ‘Sunday Times Car of the Year’.
The Jaguar I-PACE is the most high-tech vehicle the brand has ever produced and offers an all-electric range of 292 miles (WLTP), advanced infotainment and artificial intelligence technology. The I-PACE features the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system and is the first Jaguar to do so. The system is capable of over-the-air software updates and utilises artificial intelligence to adapt to a driver’s personal preferences, ensuring driving and infotainment settings are matched to whichever individual is driving the car.
Accelerating from 0-60mph in just 4.5 seconds, the I-PACE delivers sports car performance and offers four-wheel-drive, 400PS and 696Nm of torque for an exhilarating and fast drive. The state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery, with a suite of range-optimising technologies such as advanced battery pre-conditioning system, is to thank for the incredible 292 miles of real-world all-electric range despite the outstanding speed of the vehicle.
Rawdon Glover, UK Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover, commented: “We have been absolutely overwhelmed by the response to I-PACE. There are many that said the world isn’t ready for electric cars, but with a range of almost 300 miles, a quick charging time, sports car performance and nearly 25 major global awards under its belt, the I-PACE has proven them wrong in incredible style, Thank you to the team at Stuff for this award; it’s the latest in a long line of accolades that really validates the years of hard work, from thousands of passionate employees, that went into creating the car.”
Since the I-PACE’s introduction, its innovations and cutting-edge engineering have secured more than 20 major award wins, not just from tech publications. BBC TopGear named the I-PACE ‘Best Electric Vehicle, whilst Sunday Times awarded it the title of ‘Car of the Year’ and two panels of motoring experts named the vehicle ‘German Car of the Year’ and ‘Scottish Car of the Year’.
The Jaguar I-PACE is available to order now, priced from £59,995.
