Jaguar's I-PACE fully-electric crossover SUV will finally be available to pre-order on March 1. A pair of electric motor on each axle providing the radical SUV an all-wheel drive layout with a power output of around 400bhp and 700Nm of twisting force.
Jaguar chooses to remain discreet about the powertrain and performance details.
The interior of the I-Pace concept is finished with premium materials and an unwavering attention to detail - from the expansive panoramic glass roof to the sporting, beautifully finished seats - while digitally it offers two touch screens to provide information as well as limit distraction and improve the driving experience.
Excited about the upcoming launch of the Jaguar I-PACE yet? Jaguar tells SlashGear that 100 kW isn't the ceiling on the I-PACE's charging potential, just the latest figure it's choosing to announce ahead of the EV's official launch. "It's very special to put the auto outside and in the real-world." said Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar. Capable of charging in less than 45 minutes* and with sports auto performance and SUV practicality, the I-PACE will be the ideal every day vehicle - whether on the school run, daily commute or even coping with sub-zero temperatures.
Swede Tony Westerlund was invited to drive the I-PACE at Jaguar Land Rover's cold-weather test facility in Arjeplog, Sweden, at temperatures as low as -40°C.
That system requires the electric Jaguar to stay plugged in while parked, though we suspect the company has spent a fair bit of time testing how the battery holds up after multi-day "cold soak" periods at those temperatures.
Autoblog points out when the auto was first announced in the summer of 2016, Jaguar touted two hours for an 80% charge, so it's a big leap forward.
