Jaguar I-Pace – pure electric gorgeous SUV to start delivering in 2018.
Jaguar – one of our favorite car companies make the right more. After super-successful F-Pace and sibling E-Pace, here comes the I-Pace – fully electric sporty SUV by iconic brand with 0 – 100 km/h in around 4 seconds.
I love gentlemen’s express segment and also love environment friendly solutions, so there is common sense that I am excited about Jaguar I-Pace. To appeal to mass market and make another hit by sale numbers, jaguar delivers compact SUV, based on new platform, with very spacious cabin and comfortable sitting for 5, plus great power-train underneath it. two electric motors, one per each axle will produce 200 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque each, delivering performance of around 4 seconds for 0 – 100 km/h. Low mounted battery pack of 90-kWh and stiff aluminum based body will allow for great grip and handling. While range of around 350 km will be more than enough for weekend trip to experience beautiful mountain curves and exciting sliding around in almost pure silence of electric engine. Check my review of how I enjoyed this feeling for a few months exploring mountains in Austria and Slovenia in eGolf. Back to Austria, as Magna Steyr will produce I-Pace with expected price under $100,000 and deliveries to start in 2018.
We can not but like all elements of this store. Pure electric. exciting handling and performance. Useful space and comfort. Iconic brand that delivered some of most exciting sports cars in history. Considering that Jaguar promised to make half of its range electric or hybrid by 2015 – I will looking forward to my XJ in pure electric form. But I guess we will see one of the most exciting sports cars on sale today in electric form too – Jaguar F-type. We are waiting. On that test drive of I-Pace too!
