Jaguar I-PACE Wins UK Car of the Year
The Jaguar I-PACE was recently named UK Car of the Year at the 2019 UK Car of the Year Awards.
The electric model was named Best Executive car in February when the individual category winners were announced, and then faught with 11 other category winners to receive the accolade of Car of the Year.
John Challen, director of the UK Car of the Year Awards explained "As manufacturers take electric vehicles more seriously, Jaguar is leading the pack with the I-Pace, which offers fantastic range and performance as well as a stylish and spacious interior for driver and passengers.
“The UK Car of the Year Awards judges are always keen to recognise innovation and that is certainly the case in 2019.”
When collecting the award, Rawdon Glover, Jaguar Land Rover MD said "This latest major award for the I-Pace is something we can all be extremely proud of. This car was conceived, designed and engineered in Britain, so to have a selection of the nation’s leading automotive journalists vote it as the overall UK Car of the Year against some stiff competition is a special moment for us."
The UK Car of the Year Awards were first launched in 2014 and is judged by 29 of Britain's leading motoring journalists. The 12 category winning models were driven back to back to help determine the overall winner.
What the Judges Say
“The most enjoyable EV to drive bar none, with superb performance and real-world range. It’s not just a great EV, it’s a great SUV, full stop.”
Jaguar’s first pure electric car does not compromise – not in terms of design, performance or practicality. I love that it pushes Jaguar design in a new direction and makes it absolutely clear that this is a progressive Jaguar and the face of the future for the marque.”
“Jaguar widens the choice of electric vehicles with a viable range, in a striking package that blends the marque’s grace, space and pace with refreshingly desirable low emission style.”
“Jaguar’s I-Pace gives executives good reason to switch to electric mobility, packaging a long-range battery and powerful drivetrain into a sporty SUV body. It’s an electric car that appeals to both head and heart.”
