When it comes to electric cars, the British know how to compete. Step aside, Tesla – the new Jaguar I-PACE is here. Built by a brand that has long excelled at designing passenger vehicles that exceed expectation, this new model signals a new chapter in electric motoring – both for Jaguar and for UK motorists.
This innovative new model, which was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show back in March, went on sale last month. Already billed as one of the best electric cars on the market, it’s certainly made an impression, with its slick design and incredible performance capturing the attention of buyers and critics alike. Classed as a pure Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), the I-PACE delivers the same refined sophistication that is expected of the manufacturer, but also a level of engine technology that will astound.
The SUV proportions and sleek curves of the model mean that the new Jaguar I-PACE has all the style and road presence to stand out from the crowd. And, as a bigger vehicle with all-electric power, it’s almost certain to wow motorists thanks to the almost unbelievable capability it provides. This is a model that has a range of up to 292 miles on a single full charge of its 90kWh battery. What’s more, with an ability to race from 0-60mph in only 4.5 seconds, the I-PACE sets a benchmark for what clean, responsive performance in an SUV looks like.
It would be easy to assume that, with such a level of efficiency and performance, something somewhere must’ve been sacrificed. But no. The model is as comfortable and spacious as any other family-friendly SUV, providing ample room for five, innovative storage solutions, and a boot capacity of 656 litres with the rear seats up and 1,453 litres with them folded.
In-car technology and driver assistance measures, meanwhile, are extensive, with everything you need for the ultimate driving experience. Jaguar’s acclaimed Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, for example, has both a ten-inch dashboard touchscreen and a five-inch touchscreen with multi-function dynamic dials to provide you with access to the vehicle’s functionality and essential driver information.
With government subsidies available for those investing in an electric vehicle, as well as the increasing number of electric car charger points becoming available, going greener is a smart option. The ability of the Jaguar I-PACE to offer sports car agility and SUV practicality means it makes sense to explore the model in further detail.
