Jaguar I-Pace Electric SUV Revealed - Specifications, Features & Images

The I-Pace powertrain provides 400PS of output and 696Nm of torque, and its all wheel drive system helps it in accelerating from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds (0-60mph in 4.5 seconds). Its electric motors will produce up to 394 horsepower allowing it to get from a stop to 60 miles an hour in about 4.5 seconds. It will charge to 80 percent capacity in 85 minutes on existing 50kW chargers (with 30 minutes of charging giving around 80 miles of extra range) and will reach 80 percent in 45 minutes on a 100kW charger.

Like the Model X, the car's software can be updated wirelessly, and it includes features such as remote locking and checking on the car's range which can be controlled from an app on your phone. On that note, Jaguar pointed out how the most expensive - and fastest - Model X, the P100D, is nearly twice as expensive as the I-Pace, which starts at £59,000 in the United Kingdom (approximately $82,000 although U.S. prices have yet to be confirmed).

And Jaguar has already opened order books for the auto, at prices from £63,495 - the Government's £4,500 grant to electric vehicle buyers will bring this down to £58,995.

As seen with the concept model from 2016, the design is sleek and unlike any other SUV now on sale, but it maintains the Jaguar grille and has a coupe look. "With zero tailpipe emissions, no CO2and no particulates, it moves us dramatically closer to our vision of a clean, safe and sustainable future". There are other stowage compartments, too, but fold down the rear seats and the space increases to 1,453 litres. It looks futuristic and striking, but still maintains a number a Jaguar design traits.

South Africa and India back to where it all started
India's tour had gained momentum with victory in the Wanderers Test and then they carried it through to the ODI series . The Indian bowlers had to embrace a hard outing and there was one bowler who was on the receiving end particularly.

Jaguar also worked on aerodynamics and interior space that led to i-Pace. Said battery can even charge to 80% in approximately 40 minutes when plugged into a DC fast charger.

The I-Pace's battery comes with an 8-year/100,000-mile warranty that guarantees it will retain at least 70 percent of its original charge and driving range during that time. To maintain the calm interior, I-Pace features acoustic laminated glass on the front windows and windscreen, reducing noise entering the cabin from outside.

There was an online presentation of the new Jaguar I-Pace 2019. The biggest is probably going to be the number of seats: Jaguar is only offering the I-PACE as a five-seater, whereas you can get the Model X in five, six, or seven seat configurations. EV navigation will work intuitively with the driver's tendencies and factor in route topography to determine battery range.
