Triple Victory for Jaguar I-PACE
The Jaguar I-PACE has won an unprecedented three titles at the 2019 World Car Awards.
In addition to winning World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year, the I-PACE has now also been named World Green Car. The announcement was made at the New York International Auto Show on 17th April, decided by 86 motoring journalists from 24 countries.
The Jaguar I-PACE is the first vehicle to win all three categories in the awards’ 15-year history. It is the second Jaguar in the PACE family to win World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year, first won by the F-PACE in 2017.
The latest win for the I-PACE comes just weeks after it also claimed the European Car of the Year title. The model’s success doesn’t stop there, as over the past year it has received a huge number of high-profile UK awards too. These include UK Car of the Year, Sunday Times Car of the Year, BBC Top Gear Magazine’s EV of the Year and T3’s Best Car. Further to this, it has also been named Car of the Year in Germany and Norway, with China also naming it Green Car of the Year.
“It is an honour that the Jaguar I-PACE has received these three accolades from the prestigious World Car jurors. For I-PACE to be awarded 2019 World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year and World Green Car gives our first all-electric vehicle the ultimate recognition it deserves. I would like to thank the team who have created I-PACE for their passion in making it so outstanding.”
- Prof. Dr. Ralf Speth, Chief Executive Officer, Jaguar Land Rover
“Designing Jaguar cars is probably thebest job in the world, and I can honestly say that no other project I’ve worked on has been as rewarding as I-PACE. Electric vehicles offer designers unprecedented freedom to rethink the proportions, the profile and the packaging, and it’s an opportunity that my team has exploited in full.”
- Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design
