Jaguar I-Pace – Highlight At The Geneva Motorshow

Geneva, March 06. 2018 – Journalists and media representatives from all over the world traveled to Geneva. At around 11:00, the Jaguar Land Rover booth fills up slowly and just before the press conference starts, it’s almost impossible to find a place. There is a reason: Jaguar presents the Jaguar I-Pace, the British manufacturer’s first full-electric SUV, a serious competitor to the Tesla – but more to come next time.

The brand-new Jaguar I-Pace

Car enthusiasts eagerly awaited the new Jaguar I-Pace. It’s not only emission-free, intelligent and safe, but combines sustainable sports car performance with the practicality of a five-seater SUV.

So, let’s answer the most popular questions so far.

Jaguar I-Pace Range

The range is as prominent with electric cars as the consumption of a petrol engine.

The state-of-the-art 90kW lithium-ion battery with 432 pouch cells – chosen for its high energy density and superior heat-sinking properties – gives the new I-Pace a range of 480 kilometers * (in the new WLTP cycle).

Owners will be able to recharge the battery from zero to 80 percent in 40 minutes on a 100 kW DC fast charging station; If you only have 15 minutes, you can “refuel” in the same way 100 kilometers.

How much space is available?

The spacious interior of the Jaguar I-Pace offers plenty of leg room in the back seat and comes up with intelligent shelves. Without a cardan tunnel, there is room for a 10.5-liter storage compartment in the center console, for storing mobile phones, keys or other small items. Compartments hidden under the rear seats are designed to fit tablets and laptops.

The trunk volume of 656 liters surpasses that of most midsize SUVs; by moving the back seat, it can be extended to up to 1,453 liters. Despite the sloping roof line with 968 mm there is still enough headroom for the rear passengers.

What about the performance?

With its four-wheel drive, 294 kW (400 hp) and 696 Nm of maximum torque, the cat delivers an electrifying performance in the truest sense. The fully retrievable power lets the performance SUV sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in just 4.8 seconds.

What about the design?

The elegant and elongated silhouette with short and flat hood, aerodynamically shaped roof contour and curved rear window reveals immediately: The Jaguar DNA is recognizable, a truly harmonious and sporty SUV.

I wanna have it! But how much is it?

In Germany prices start from € 77.850, in Switzerland at 82’800 CHF.
