THE NEW ALL-ELECTRIC JAGUAR I-PACE: 10 REASONS TO PLUG‑IN

There’s a myriad of reasons why the new all-electric Jaguar I‑PACE was named the Most Anticipated Car of the Year award for 2018 by WhatCar? From its incredible performance, range and craftsmanship – through to its groundbreaking design, layout and in-car technology, join us for a tour of the most advanced Jaguar yet…


01 ELECTRIFYING PERFORMANCE
With no lag or gearshift interruptions, the I‑PACE accelerates from 0-100km/h (62mph) in just 4.8 seconds. Sports car agility is assured owing to the 90kWh battery being positioned within the floor between the two axles, giving a low centre of gravity and near perfect weight distribution.

02 RANGE & CHARGING
A single full charge provides a range of 480km (298 miles). With a 50kW DC rapid charger – the kind found at most public charging stations – I‑PACE can achieve up to 270km (168 miles) of range per hour*. I‑PACE also comes equipped with a 7kW on board charger that can fully recharge the vehicle overnight.
*Actual charge times may vary according to environmental conditions and available charging installation.

03 DESIGN REIMAGINED
The I-PACE's radical sweeping cab-forward profile, dramatic bonnet scoop and signature rear haunches are far more than striking design elements. They also form integral parts of the car's aerodynamics and help deliver a low drag coefficient of 0.29Cd to improve range.

04 THE NEW FRONTIER OF TECHNOLOGY
The I-PACE is powered by two compact axel-mounted Permanent Magnet Synchronous Electric Motors. Positioned in the vehicle to provide a low centre of gravity for enhanced control, handling and agility, each motor can produce 200PS with a total output of 400PS – all delivered through high performance All Wheel Drive.

05 INTERIOR COMFORT & ELEGANCE
The I-PACE interior reimagines the classic Jaguar balance of sports car excitement, pioneering ergonomics and exceptional craftsmanship. What’s more, in eschewing a conventional engine, transmission tunnel and fuel tank, the all-electric architecture gives way to new levels of interior space, passenger comfort and innovative storage.

06 INFOTAINMENT
The I-PACE comes equipped with the latest dual-touchscreen InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment linked to an 11-speaker Meridian™ Sound System. The Touch Pro Duo is Jaguar’s most advanced multimedia system yet. It seamlessly connects with most Apple and Android smartphones, responds to voice commands and features a fully customisable home screen.

07 FULLY INTEGRATED CONNECTIVITY
The I-PACE is a truly connected car. Monitor and manage your charging status while pre-heating or pre-cooling the cabin, all from the convenience of the Jaguar smartphone and smartwatch apps. The I‑PACE comes equipped with no less than four USB sockets and through the dual-screen Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, boasts a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot.

08 INCENTIVES, BENEFITS & TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP
In addition to zero tailpipe emissions and the option of never needing to visit a petrol station again, the I‑PACE has class-leading residual values in a range of European countries*. This, combined with lower service requirements, tax exemptions and incentives, means I‑PACE delivers compelling total cost of ownership.

09 NEW SPACES FOR GREATER STOWAGE
Owing to the extra interior space afforded by the all-electric architecture, the I‑PACE is abundant with clever storage solutions. From the 656 litres available behind the rear seats to the reclaimed 27 litres under the bonnet - and the 10.5 litre cubby bin beneath the centre armrest and the cavernous door bins - there’s no shortage when it comes to stowage.

10 PEACE OF MIND
For added peace of mind, the I‑PACE's 90kWh battery is covered by a comprehensive eight year or 160,000km (100,000 miles) warranty, in addition to the standard Jaguar three-year warranty. Additionally, I‑PACE's fewer moving parts can help to reduce servicing and maintenance costs.
