Jaguar drops its hat into the electric arena, I-Pace revealed

Jaguar drops its hat into the electric arena, I-Pace revealed

Jaguar has begun their all-electric innings, gearing up for the future of motoring with their first ever battery electric vehicle, the I-Pace. The official reveal comes just ahead of the Geneva Auto Show where the I-Pace will be launched globally with a price tag.

The I-Pace was revealed as a concept in 2016 and Jaguar has built the production car almost exactly like the concept. It is an SUV but hunkered down to the ground with the muscular wheel arches and a raked windshield. The signature mesh grille with the feline headlamps and the snazzy cuts give the classic styling a futuristic appeal.

The drama continues inside as well, and the cockpit gets three screens. Yes three. The dual stack of screens for the infotainment system and the AC, seat and driving modes settings make up for the waterfall centre console. The third screen plays the role of the instrument cluster displaying your driving styles, consumption and a whole bouquet of data along with the standard speed and trip computers. And if you want a fourth screen, there will be an optional HUD display. 

As a Jaguar, and that too one that is the harbinger of future, it will be laden with luxuries and performance as well. So, powering the I-Pace are two electric motors, one for each axle, and a combined power output of 394bhp of power. The four-wheel drive I-Pace hurtles to 100kmph from standstill in just 4.5 seconds and also claims a range of 240 miles (450kmph) which is certainly Tesla rivalling, especially the Model X SUV. The primary concern of battery life is taken care of by an eight-year 1,00,000kms warranty in case the battery performance dips below 70 per cent. The fast charger gets it up to 80 per cent charge in just 40 minutes while the regular charger will take about 10 hours.
