This all-electric SUV has been an integral part of the automotive market overseas. It was 2017 when Jaguar unleashed the first I-Pace on the streets of London. And today this renowned British carmaker has finally rolled this electric SUV I-Pace in the domestic market.

The Powerhouse of Jaguar I-Pace…

Underneath the body sits a 90kWh battery that powers a 400hp electric motor. This potent motor is capable of producing a whopping 696Nm of peak torque.

  • Being an electric vehicle, it does not have a transmission, hence the driver is restricted to only 3 selection of gears, P-Park, D-Drive, and R-Reverse.
  • The complete power and drive train of the Jaguar I-Pace is capable of propelling his huge car from 0-100kmph in just 4.3 seconds.
Battery Pack!

The new Jaguar I-Pace gets a 90kWh battery pack that is mounted underneath the vehicle for better space management.

Coming to the crucial stuff, charging time.

  • From a conventional 7kW AC wall box charger the car takes a minimum of 10 hours to go from 0% to 100%.
  • But using the fast 100kW fast charger, the I-Pace gets from 0% to 80% in about 45 minutes.

  • So, when it is locked and you approach the vehicle with a keyfob in your pocket, the car detects your presence and pops those door handles. At least she cares about your arrival.
  • A huge high-res touch screen in the centre is there to keep to entertained on the go.
