YOUR RECOMMENDED POWERTRAIN IS - ELECTRIC VEHICLE (EV)

INTRODUCTION TO EV

Powered by a battery-operated electric motor and recharged using a plug-in charge point, our new Electric Vehicle (EV), Jaguar I‑PACE is perfect for city driving, regular short journeys and occasional longer runs.

  • Electric vehicles produce zero tailpipe emissions.
  • Typically offers a spacious interior and near silent drive.
  • Lower running costs and the convenience of charging at home vs refilling at a service station.
  • A range of incentives are available to encourage drivers to purchase an electric vehicle.
  • Range can vary widely based on temperature, weather conditions and driving style.

YOU COULD ALSO CONSIDER

YOUR RECOMMENDED ENGINE IS - DIESEL

INTRODUCTION TO DIESEL

All our vehicles fitted with Jaguar's new Diesel engines are a great fit for drivers predominantly taking longer journeys on motorways with some city travel.
All our diesel vehicles are fitted with Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) and use Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) to meet stringent regulations and lower tailpipe emissions.

  • Typically more fuel efficient than petrol engines.
  • Torque characteristics suitable for off-road terrain, towing and long motorway journeys.
  • EU6 compliant for emissions with CO2 level approximately 20% below petrol.
  • New diesel won't always be at its efficient best if you only take short trips or mostly drive in cities.

YOU COULD ALSO CONSIDER

YOUR RECOMMENDED ENGINE IS - PETROL

INTRODUCTION TO PETROL

Our petrol vehicles are an ideal choice for drivers who primarily take shorter journeys and tend to drive fewer kilometres on the motorway.
All our new petrol vehicles utilise the latest technology, including GPF (Gasoline Particulate Filters) to help reduce emissions.

  • Well suited to dynamic or high performance driving.
  • Typically more suited to shorter urban journeys than diesels.
  • EU6 compliant with cutting-edge technology to reduce emissions.
  • More tailpipe CO2 emissions than diesel engines.

THE KEY BENEFITS OF NEW DIESEL, PETROL AND ELECTRIC

LOW CO2 EMISSIONS

Jaguar's new diesel engines produce around 20% lower CO2 emissions than petrol engines. In fact, since 2002, buyers choosing diesel engines have saved almost 3 million tonnes of CO2 from going into the atmosphere.

EU6d-TEMP AND REAL DRIVING EMISSIONS (RDE) COMPLIANT

Jaguar's new diesel vehicles are EU6d-Temp and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) compliant, significantly reducing emissions in all driving conditions.

REDUCED NITROGEN OXIDE EMISSIONS (NOx)

Since September 2015, all Jaguar diesel models have featured advanced Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust after-treatment (i.e. AdBlue) which helps to dramatically reduce NOx emissions.

ENHANCED FUEL EFFICIENCY

Jaguar's new diesel vehicles deliver around 20% better fuel economy than their petrol counterparts. So if you frequently cover 19,000km a year or more, it’s likely to be the most cost-effective choice for you.

EU6d-TEMP AND REAL DRIVING EMISSIONS (RDE) COMPLIANT

New Jaguar petrol vehicles are EU6d-Temp and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) compliant, significantly reducing emissions in all driving conditions.

A DYNAMIC DRIVING EXPERIENCE

With smooth and responsive power delivery, Jaguar petrol engines offer our most spirited driving experiences. They’re an exhilarating combination of effortless performance and stirring sounds at all speeds.

LOW PARTICULATES

Our latest petrol engines are equipped with highly efficient filters to capture and store ultrafine particles as exhaust gases pass through them. This helps to lower the amount of tailpipe emissions released into the atmosphere.

CHEAPER UPFRONT COSTS

Although diesel engines typically offer greater fuel efficiency, the cheaper upfront costs on equivalent petrol engines can often prove a smarter choice for lower mileage drivers taking shorter journeys.

ZERO TAILPIPE EMISSIONS

Achieving zero tailpipe CO2 emissions at the point of use and a range of up to 470km per charge, the Jaguar I‑PACE doesn't just cost much less to fill with fuel, it also has no exhaust emissions. With more and more renewable energy being added to the grid every year, Jaguar I‑PACE gets cleaner as it gets older.

CONVENIENCE AND ACCESSIBILITY

In many cities, electric vehicles are now permitted to use vehicle lanes and parking spaces where other vehicle access is restricted. They are also exempt from any emissions-based charges.

GOVERNMENT INCENTIVES

Electric vehicles qualify for benefits provided by government, local authorities and businesses supporting the move to the world’s cleanest powertrains. This includes notably lower taxation rates than petrol and diesel equivalents.

ECONOMICAL RUNNING COSTS

The relative low cost of electricity means pure electric cars are cheaper to refuel. And with fewer moving powertrain parts to preserve, they’re also cheaper to maintain.

OUR MOST EFFICIENT ENGINES EVER

Ingenium is Jaguar Land Rover's family of engines designed for effortless performance, refinement and efficiency. With advanced technology and all-aluminium construction, Ingenium balances impressive power with strong fuel economy.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

OPEN ALLCLOSE ALL
  • What is a powertrain?
    A vehicle powertrain is every component that turns an energy source (fuel/battery) in to movement via engine / electric motor, transmission, drive shafts, differentials and axles.

    The most common vehicle powertrain systems are petrol, diesel, battery electric vehicle (BEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV).
  • How long does it take to recharge an electric car?
    Jaguar I-PACE is equipped with a 7kW single phase AC on-board charger, which can fully charge the vehicle overnight while you sleep and deliver up to 35km of range per hour. The fastest and most convenient way to charge at home is using a wallbox, which can restore the energy used from the average daily commute in under 2 hours.

    When using a domestic socket, charging rates are slower than a wallbox (up to 11km of range per hour), but are sufficient to cover the average daily commute of 60km if the vehicle is charged overnight.

    When away from home, the best way to get a quick top up of your battery’s charge for those long journeys is with a public DC charger – a typical 50kW charger can deliver up to 270km of range per hour. Some networks already offer faster 100-150 kW chargers, and most networks are planning upgrades in the near future.
  • What is the range of an electric car?
    Thanks to a high-tech lithium-ion battery, which has a capacity of 90kWh, Jaguar I‑PACE has a range of up to 470km* on the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP).

    The WLTP is a process that measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions in passenger vehicles in Europe. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour.
  • What are the advantages of diesel over petrol?
    The higher energy density of the fuel, and the way energy is released during combustion, means diesel can offer a greater efficiency. If you are driving 19,000km a year or more, a diesel is likely to be the most cost-effective choice.

    Generally, a diesel engine offers more torque than a petrol engine, which means its power is more suitable for conquering off-road terrain and towing.
  • How does Jaguar Land Rover reduce vehicle emissions?
    At Jaguar Land Rover, we have invested over £1billion into our state-of-the-art engine manufacturing centre to develop a family of more efficient petrol and diesel engines.
  • Are diesel engines clean?
    As of September 2018, all our EU and EEA diesel engines meet tough EU6d-Temp and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) regulations.

    By producing our cleanest engines to date, we are significantly reducing environmental impact.
  • What is a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and why is it important?
    In order to meet stringent emissions regulations, introduced in 2009, all new diesel vehicles are fitted with an exhaust filter. These are also known as Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs). DPFs efficiently capture and store particles from exhaust gases, helping to lower tailpipe emissions.
