Explore the Outstanding Capability of the Jaguar I-PACE Concept
Jaguar remains a leading name for drivers in search of race-inspired performance and first-class luxury, and the newly revealed I-PACE concept shows that they’re ready to bring those benefits to electric vehicles. The new model is an electric SUV that is set to revolutionize the industry. Here’s everything that we know so far.
The I-PACE Concept Reveal
The Jaguar I-PACE was revealed just ahead of the 2017 LA Auto Show, but it won’t just be another concept. High-ranking sources from within the company indicate that this is also a preview of what we can expect to hit the road in 2018, and it’s quite the preview.
In the words of Jaguar design director Ian Callum, this will be the automaker’s “first-ever battery-powered electric vehicle and opens a new chapter in the history of our legendary brand.”
The I-PACE won’t just be the inaugural battery-powered electric vehicle from Jaguar. This is also going to become the first luxury entrant in the all-electric compact SUV segment. It appears that Jaguar will be setting the benchmark high for models following in its wake. In fact, the design team clearly went right back to basics to craft something that exactly hits the spot.
The chassis has been developed specifically with battery-power in mind, so it actually benefits from the lack of a traditional powertrain. The cabin is pushed forward to increase interior space and provide better forward-visibility for the driver, for instance.
Electric power won’t only mean reducing your emissions — expect to maximize performance, too. A liquid-cooled 90-kWh battery pack will send a charge to a pair of 200-hp electric motors placed at each axle, essentially providing an all-wheel-drive experience while eliminating the need for cumbersome drive shafts. Alongside 400 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, drivers will enjoy the ability to make 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds, go 220 miles on a single charge, and charge their battery in just two hours.
