The Jaguar I-PACE, the manufacturer's first electric vehicle, has been unleashed onto the streets for the first time.
This exciting new vehicle was driven around the streets of London's famous Olympic Park and plans to be on the road permanently from the second half of 2018.
The I-PACE will have the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60mph in around 4 seconds, with a range of more than 500km from the 90kWh lithium-ion battery. Charging the model will be easy and quick, with 80 percent charge achieved in just 90 minutes using 50kW DC charging. The front and rear axles generate a combined output of 400PS and 700N of torque and all-wheel drive. The model will also boast more agility, ride comfort and refinement than other electric vehicles.
Ian Callum, Director of Design at Jaguar has commented: "The feedback on the I-PACE Concept has been fantastic. With the I-PACE Concept we’ve torn up the rule book to create a vehicle with supercar inspired aesthetics, sports car performance and SUV space, in one electric package. It has surprised people and the enthusiasm for our first electric vehicle has been beyond all my expectations."
"Driving the concept on the streets is really important for the design team. It’s very special to put the car outside and in the real-world. You can see the true value of the I-PACE’s dramatic silhouette and powerful proportions when you see it on the road, against other cars. The I-PACE Concept represents the next generation of battery electric vehicle design. For me, the future of motoring has arrived. "
More information about the I-PACE will be available soon.
