Jaguar has unleashed its first electric vehicle the Jaguar I-PACE onto the streets for the first time

 
  • Jaguar I-PACE Concept driven on the streets of London for the first time
  • Jaguars first electric vehicle – the I-PACE will be launched in 2018
Driving on the streets of Londons famous Olympic Park, the electric performance SUV concept previews Jaguars first electric vehicle, the Jaguar I-PACE, which will be revealed in late 2017 and will be on the road in the second half of 2018.

The feedback on the I-PACE Concept has been fantastic. With the I-PACE Concept weve torn up the rule book to create a vehicle with supercar inspired aesthetics, sports car performance and SUV space, in one electric package. It has surprised people and the enthusiasm for our first electric vehicle has been beyond all my expectations. Driving the concept on the streets is really important for the design team. Its very special to put the car outside and in the real-world. You can see the true value of the I-PACEs dramatic silhouette and powerful proportions when you see it on the road, against other cars. The I-PACE Concept represents the next generation of battery electric vehicle design. For me, the future of motoring has arrived.

The I-PACE will be a long distance sprinter that accelerates to 60 mph in around 4 seconds, with a range of more than 500km (NEDC cycle) from the 90kWh lithium-ion battery. Charging is easy and quick, with 80 per cent charge achieved in just 90 minutes using 50kW DC charging.

Compact, lightweight electric motors at the front and rear axles generate a combined output of 400PS and 700Nm of torque, with the all-weather benefits of all-wheel drive. The I-PACE will also deliver the agility, ride comfort and refinement that will set it apart from all other electric vehicles: it will be a true Jaguar and a true drivers car.
