Jaguar I-PACE Named European Car of the Year
The Jaguar I-PACE has been named European Car of the Year at the 2019 award ceremony. This is the first time a Jaguar has won the coveted prize.
Not content with just winning the 2019 UK Car of the Year Award, the I-PACE has beat off the competition in Europe too. Since its launch a mere one year ago, the model has won an incredible 55 awards globally.
The European Car of the Year jury is comprised of 60 motoring journalists from 23 countries, who decided on the all-electric I-PACE above six other finalists. The judges praised the model for its technical innovation, stunning design, exhilarating performance, efficiency and value for money.
"For our first electric vehicle to also be the first Jaguar to win European Car of the Year gives us a huge sense of pride. I-PACE was designed and engineered in the UK from a clean sheet of paper. It is the most technologically advanced battery electric vehicle. It’s a true game-changer. Winning European Car of the Year is an honour and real recognition of what our world-class team has delivered."
Prof. Dr. Ralf Speth - Cheif Executive Officer
Designed and developed in the UK, the model has enjoyed huge success with more than 8,000 customer delivers to date, with 75% of them being in Europe. Its popularity is thanks to its unique combination of an electric powertrain and bespoke aluminium architecture, offering sports car performance and SUV practicality in one beautifully designed vehicle.
Customers can easily charge the Jaguar at over 85,000 public charging stations throughout Europe. Tailor-made charging packages and tariffs are compiled into a monthly bill to create a simple way to enjoy their models.
