With a state-of-the-art 90kWh lithium-ion battery using 432 pouch cells, the I-Pace delivers a range of 480 kilometres. Owners will be able to achieve a 0-80 percent battery charge in just 40 minutes using DC rapid charging (100kW). Home charging with an AC wall box (7kW) will achieve the same state of charge in just over ten hours – ideal for overnight charging.
Two Jaguar-designed electric motors – which feature driveshafts passing through the motors themselves for compactness – are placed at each axle, producing exceptional combined performance of 400hp and 696Nm, and all-wheel-drive, all-surface traction. The high-torque-density and high-energy -efficiency characteristics of the motors deliver sports car performance, launching the I-Pace from a standing start to 100km/h in just 4.8 seconds. The instantaneous performance is matched with exceptional ride comfort and engaging driving dynamics.
The bespoke EV aluminium architecture uses advanced riveting and bonding technology to deliver a light, stiff body structure. Together with the structural battery pack, it has a torsional rigidity of 36kNm/degree – the highest of any Jaguar today.
The battery is placed centrally between the two axles, and as low down as possible with a seal between the housing and the underfloor. This location enables perfect 50:50 weight distribution and a low centre of gravity which, together with the advanced double wishbone front and Integral Link rear axle with (optional) air suspension and configurable Adaptive Dynamics, delivers agile handling and outstanding ride comfort.
There will be nothing else on the road that looks or drives like the Jaguar I-Pace. It is designed and engineered to take full advantage of its smart electric powertrain and maximise the potential of the packaging benefits it brings.
Inside, the layout optimises space for passengers while sophisticated materials, including the option of a premium textile Kvadrat interior, and exquisite attention to detail identify this as a true Jaguar.
While a mid-sized SUV, the I-Pace’s cab-forward design and EV powertrain mean interior space comparable to large SUVs. In the rear, legroom is 890mm while, with no transmission tunnel, there’s a useful 10.5-litre central storage compartment. In the rear, tablet and laptop stowage is found beneath the seats, while the rear luggage compartment offers a 656-litre capacity, or 1453 litres with seats folded flat.
The I-Pace also introduces the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system to the Jaguar model range. Utilising an innovative combination of touchscreens, capacitive sensors and tactile physical controls, Touch Pro Duo is intuitive to use.
