Jaguar I-Pace buyer review...
The Jaguar I-Pace is an electric vehicle designed by Ian Callum and the original concept version of the car was unveiled at the 2016 Los Angeles motor show and shown on the road in London in March 2017.
POWER - The Jaguar I‑PACE is propelled by two permanent magnet synchronous electric motors, similar to the technology found in the I‑TYPE Formula E racing car. These motors generate 400PS and 696Nm of torque.
BATTERY - The I‑PACE’s has a 90kWh battery which is made up of high energy density lithium-ion pouch cells. It's design and state-of-the-art thermal management system supports longevity and periods of sustained maximum power.
PERFORMANCE - Instant torque and all-wheel-drive traction gives I‑PACE the acceleration of a sports car and quickly reaches 60mph in 4.5 seconds.
CHARGING - With a 50kW DC rapid charger – the kind found at most public charging stations – I‑PACE can achieve up to 168 miles of range per hour*.
RANGE - One full charge provides a range of up to 470km / 292miles on the WLTP cycle*.
*Actual charge times may vary according to environmental conditions and available charging installation.
The I‑PACE is a Jaguar above all else, a true driver’s car. Its electric motors and near perfect weight distribution deliver 696Nm of instant torque and sports car agility. The I-Pace EV not only looks great, it provides a very acceptable range. In addition, the noise suppression and levels of refinement are superb. Take a test drive today and you won't be disappointed.
Our recommended written review...
Our recommended I-PACE review comes from Top Gear
"There is more than one way to drive the I-Pace. In Dynamic, like your pants are on fire, with more weight to the steering and snap to the throttle. Which is fine so long as you know a charger is nearby and you have several hours to spare. Or like a saint in Comfort or Eco mode when you you’ve got miles to cover. Or, you can turn off the road altogether. The I-Pace isn’t an off-roader, but it has a low grip mode and AdSR. I’m not sure Adaptive Surface Response, which adjusts motor and brake settings depending on surface and conditions, was ever expected to handle actual off-road. We get to a section where the grass is door-deep and the chalk beneath slippery. The traction control skitters and clicks in the background, the motors whine a little, but momentum is maintained."
