Jaguar I-Pace Revealed Ahead of Geneva Motor Show


The I-PACE uses a 90kWh lithium-ion battery, managing up to 298 miles range from full.

The new 2019 Jaguar I-Pace has officially joined the English automaker's line-up as their first electric SUV. Alternatively, home charging with a 240V AC wall box will take the I-PACE to 80% in just over ten hours. Jaguar claims I-Pace will provide outstanding ride comfort as it employs the advanced double- wishbone front and Integral Link rear axle along with the optional air suspension and configurable Adaptive Dynamics.

The 2019 I-Pace doesn't actually look that different from the concept version that previewed it.

The boot capacity is 656 l in the normal state and 1,453 litres with the rear seats folded.

The smart satellite navigation installed calculates the most efficient route for the vehicle so that the electric power can last longer.

Above the entry-level variant sits the SE model for £65,000, Auto Express reports, followed by the £69,995 HSE and the range-topping First Edition at £76,900.

Jaguar will debut the I-Pace publicly at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show when prices will also be released before the vehicle reaches its targeted markets in the second half of the year. Like Teslas, the Jaguar will receive over-the-air software updates - a first for the British company. With space at a premium in its United Kingdom plants Jaguar has contracted Austrian giant Magna-Steyr to build the vehicle. Yet it struggles to match the I-Pace for acceleration and braking performance. Go for a 100 kW DC rapid charging station and that time is then cut to just 40 minutes.

Although pricing hasn't yet been announced, Jaguar will begin delivering the I-PACE to USA customers during the second half of 2019. The Touch Pro Duo infotainment system uses touchscreens, capacitive sensors and tactile physical controls loaded with a new EV navigation system and Smart Settings.

Available to order now, it will be priced from £63,495 in the United Kingdom (excluding government incentives).

Also debuting will be Amazon Alexa Skill. - drivers will be able to ask questions of an Alexa-enabled device on such aspects as the car's range and whether the next journey is achievable without a recharge. Combining know-how and heritage, future I-Pace owners will know that their interiors will be more than an iPad bolted on to an empty dash, and that their vehicle comes gimmick-free. The pricing puts the I-Pace in the same cost range as Jaguar's XJ sedan.

The Model X, meanwhile, is offered in three configurations.
