The fully electric and highly coveted Jaguar SUV is the first vehicle to win three categories in the same year at the 2019 World Car Awards, New York International Auto Show just weeks after it was titled the European Car of the Year 2019. The Jaguar I-PACE is the second member of the acclaimed PACE family to win World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year, following the Jaguar F-Pace’s victory two years ago.
Not only has the Jaguar I-PACE won the desired World Car of the Year title, it has also been named World Green car, confirming its position as the best electric car to buy in today’s premium electric vehicle (EV) world market. In the last year alone, the Jaguar I-PACE has received several high-profile UK awards, including UK Car of the Year, Sunday Times Car of the Year, Stuff Magazine’s ‘Best Car’ and T3’s ‘Best Car’. Throughout the world it has also been named both German and Norway’s Car of the Year and China’s Green Car of the Year.
Designed and manufactured in the UK, the I-PACE, Jaguar’s 100% electric SUV, is enticing many new customers to the British brand, and for many of whom it will be their first EV vehicle with over 11,000 customers in more than 60 countries worldwide purchasing the Eclectic vehicle. Its utterly unique blend of sports car performance, zero emissions, sublime luxury and exceptional SUV practicality makes the I-PACE truly incomparable.
Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design said "Designing Jaguar cars is probably the best 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. Winning the 2019 World Car Design of the Year award, as well as World Car of the Year and World Green Car, is true recognition for their achievements."
The I-PACE’s dramatic, cab-forward profile, short overhangs and taut, muscular haunches give it a sense of drama which set it apart from other SUVs. The spacious interior – enabled by the bespoke electric vehicle architecture – is finished with beautiful premium details and exacting Jaguar craftsmanship. The Jaguar I-PACE has a state-of-the-art 90kWh lithium-ion battery and delivers a range of up to 292 miles (WLTP cycle). It’s capable of charging from 0-80% in just 40 minutes (100kW DC) or takes just over ten hours to achieve the same state of charge when using a domestic wallbox (7kW AC) - ideal for overnight home-charging.
A suite of smart, range-optimising technologies also includes a battery pre-conditioning system: when plugged in the I-PACE will automatically raise (or lower) the temperature of its battery to maximise range ahead of driving away. What’s more, the I-PACE has also earned a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. The body structure provides high levels of occupant protection and is complemented by technologies designed to protect other road users and pedestrians, including a deployable bonnet and autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection.
