JAGUAR I-PACE CONCEPT
Jaguar I-PACE Concept
With the Jaguar I-PACE, the luxury automaker will be expanding its lineup while increasing the number of electric vehicles available. The I-PACE concept will not only be the first Jaguar SUV to go electric, but it is actually the brand’s very first completely electric model. At the moment, it is still a concept, but Jaguar has plans for the I-PACE to arrive in late 2018.
A Sleek SUV
In addition to being electric, the Jaguar I-PACE Concept continues the tradition of luxury SUVs being incredibly sleek. Even so, this model seems to take it to the next level with dramatic styling and aerodynamics you simply haven’t seen before. In designing this model, Jaguar wanted to create electric vehicles that were clearly Jaguars, showcasing that EVs can, in fact, provide exhilaration and invigorate the senses.
Jaguar certainly achieved its goal as this Jaguar SUV has aerodynamics from every end and looks incredibly coupe-like with the functionality of an SUV. You get an aerodynamic hood scoop, bold air ducts, and flush door handles, all of which contribute to the model’s aerodynamics while enhancing its range.
Striking Interior Design
When you sit inside the Jaguar I-PACE Concept, it is clear that you are in a luxury SUV, thanks to the sophisticated details. There is room for five passengers, and the level of attention is exactly what you expect from a premium model. The I-PACE Concept benefits from the fact that electric vehicles don’t need bulky transmission tunnels or combustion engines. This translates into an extremely spacious interior, with some help from the longer wheelbase. That means that not only does the I-PACE Concept fit five, but it does so with an impressive amount of legroom that will ensure even tall adults are comfortable. There is also plenty of storage for luggage and more.
Proof That EVs Can Be Powerful
Electric vehicles still have a reputation for lacking power, but the Jaguar I-PACE Concept aims to change this. With this model, you get all the performance you’d expect from a Jaguar SUV along with the environmental friendliness of an EV. Don’t worry about being limited by the range – the I-PACE Concept can go more than 386 kilometers. As such, range is unlikely to be an issue, especially with the growing number of public charging points.
How much power will this Jaguar SUV have? Expect 400 horsepower along with 516 pound-feet of torque that is delivered instantly. That translates into the ability to go from a standstill up to 100 kilometers per hour in just 4 seconds. In other words, this model proves that EVs can compete with traditional gas engines, even on performance models.
The I-PACE Concept also has all-wheel drive to give you some extra stability in all weather conditions. Now you don’t have to worry about tackling that wet or icy road or going on mild trails. The all-wheel drive also adds to the vehicle’s stability without sacrificing its sports car agility.
Seamless Displays and Technology
As expected from a Jaguar SUV, the I-PACE Concept is loaded with the latest technology in displays you haven’t seen anywhere else. All of the information you need is right at your fingertips on the intuitive touchscreen or the digital information display that sits where traditional gauges would be. In fact, the center console has not one but two touchscreens for infotainment. There is even a Head-Up Display in full color added to the mix so you don’t have to look down to see crucial information.
Get All the Benefits of EVs
As an EV, this luxury SUV also delivers all the advantages you get from driving electric vehicles. Instead of having to spend money on fuel, the Jaguar I-PACE uses electricity, something which tends to be cheaper. Not only that, but it is much better for the environment, as fuel is never clean and electricity comes from renewable sources more than ever before. Of course, an EV also has no emissions and delivers a quieter drive. As a bonus for your wallet, electric vehicles like the I-PACE Concept are more affordable to maintain.
Getting Your I-PACE
Unfortunately, the Jaguar I-PACE Concept isn’t available quite yet. You will have to wait until the second half of 2018 to drive this vehicle and call it your own. In the meantime, you can sign up for updates to learn more about it, or contact Budds' Imported Cars, your local Oakville Jaguar dealership. You can even reserve your model already if you know you want to own this revolutionary luxury SUV.
