Jaguar I-Pace arrives with 240 mile driving range

Jaguar I-Pace arrives with 240 mile driving range

Jaguar has staged 0-60-0 miles per hour drag races with the Tesla Model X in 75D and 100D guises, and the I-Pace came out as a victor in both cases.

Performance is taken care of by dual electric motors, one driving the front wheels and the other at the rear, with a combined 394bhp (400hp) and 513lb.ft (696Nm) delivering 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds onto a top speed of 124mph. It's a sharply-styled, five-seater crossover that is aimed squarely at the high end of the auto market that Jaguar typically operates in, where it will instantly slot in as the most direct competition to Tesla's Model X electric SUV when it goes on sale later this year. Freshly announced today, the I-PACE arrives in the USA in the second half of the year, with a 90 kWh battery promising around 240 miles of range from a full charge.

When it comes to recharging this beast, Jaguar says that owners can achieve 80 percent battery capacity "from empty" in 40 minutes using a 100 kW DC fast charger.

A 7kW AC wall box at home will have the I-Pace charged to 80 per cent in 10 hours. It also features an AWD system.

The vehicle uses the same InControl Touch Pro Duo system as the Range Rover Velar, which means the centre of the dashboard houses two touch screen displays.

Full equipment and pricing details are still to come, although Jaguar has confirmed the familiar S, SE and HSE trims, along with a First Edition model.

Romanian Measles Epidemic Worst in Europe
Measles is a leading cause of death among young children even though a safe and cost-effective vaccine is available. Of the people diagnosed in Europe, 35 died of the disease, which struck hardest in Romania, Italy, and Ukraine.

Following months of teaser shots and concepts, Jaguar's long-awaited entry to the EV ute category has arrived-the 2019 I-Pace.

"With zero tailpipe emissions, no Carbon dioxide and no particulates the I-Pace moves us dramatically closer to our vision of a clean, safe and sustainable future". "Starting with a clean sheet enabled the dramatic cab-forward profile, unique proportions and exceptional interior space - yet it is unmistakably a Jaguar". The I-Pace boasts the same vision of a future we've seen in countless Hollywood films and is a near ideal representation of it. The vehicle can also charge to 80 percent from empty in 40 minutes using special quick charger hardware, and a 15-minute top-up is good for around 62 miles of additional range.

Elsewhere, there's a battery pre-conditioning system which varies the temperature when plugged in, in order to maximise the range. Lastly the I-Pace will also arrive with Amazon Alexa Sill, which lets owners ask Alexa for information about their vehicle.

Jaguar also worked on aerodynamics and interior space that led to i-Pace.

I-Pace will also launch an Amazon Alexa Skill. Do I have enough range to get to work? Emphasising the car's sporting credentials, Jaguar will even organise a race series for the I-Pace alongside the Formula E global championship for electric single seater race cars (full story here).
