Jaguar, part of JLR and also
part of the larger Tata Motors’ family has revealed the I-Pace concept, an
electric performance SUV. The I-Pace Concept previews Jaguar’s first-ever
electric vehicle. The production version will be revealed in late 2017 and will
hit the road in 2018. The car has a bold, cab-forward design that combines a
supercar silhouette with sports car performance and five-seater SUV versatility.
With a predicted range of more
than 500km on the NEDC cycle (more than 220 miles EPA), drivers with the
average daily commute will only need to recharge the vehicle once a week. The
car occupies less road space than conventional mid-size SUVs yet offers more
room for passengers and luggage than models in the segment above. Its optimised
aerodynamics deliver a low drag coefficient of just 0.29 and inspired new
design features that embody the vehicle’s power and performance.
Lightweight slimline seats and
a ‘Sports Command’ driving position provide a sports car-like sense of
connection with the road. Electric motors at the front and rear axles generate
a combined output of 400PS and 700Nm of instant torque, delivering sports car
acceleration and the all-weather, all-surface benefits of all-wheel drive. The
low centre of gravity combined with sophisticated double wishbone front and
Integral Link rear suspension delivers Jaguar ride and handling with
outstanding refinement. A blend of touchscreens, capacitive switches and
tactile analogue controls helps drivers to manage in-car information more
“The I-Pace Concept is a
radical departure for electric vehicles. It represents the next generation of
battery electric vehicle design. It’s a dramatic, future-facing design – the
product of authentic Jaguar DNA matched with beautiful, premium details and
“This isn’t just a concept. It
is a preview of a five-seat production car that will be on the road in 2018.
This will be Jaguar’s first-ever battery-powered electric vehicle and opens a
new chapter in the history of our legendary brand,” said Ian Callum, Director
of Design, Jaguar.
