Jaguar I-Pace to be priced from $119,000 and will pack electrifying performance
Jaguar Australia has announced specifications and pricing for Jaguar’s first purpose built and all-electric SUV, the I-Pace.
Power will be provided by twin Jaguar-designed motors that produce a combined 294kW and a staggering 696Nm, quick enough to launch the I-Pace from 0-100km/h in just 4.8 seconds.
The electric motors are fed by a 90kWh Lithium-ion battery that delivers 480km range and users can charge the battery from 0-80% in 40 minutes, with a 15 minute charge making for 100km in range.
The I-Pace is backed by an eight-year battery warranty and a three year/100,00km vehicle warranty.
Structurally, the I-Pace is built from an all-aluminium structure to reduce weight, and a 50:50 weight distribution helps to ensure that drivers are treated to a driving that they’d come to expect from a Jaag. Fun, in other words.
There’s other clever tech too, including a special satellite navigation system that’ll not only get you to your destination, but it’ll do so in a way that’ll maximize the battery’s range. The I-Pace will also feature a first for Jaguar, Amazon Alexa Skill. This means owners will be able to ask an Alexa compatible device for information held in the Jaguar InControl Remote app. For example: Is my car locked? What is the charging level? Do I have enough range to get to work? There’ll also be a host of smart technologies that memorise various different driver preferences.
And when it’s time for a software update, it’ll all happen wirelessly, much like a Tesla.
Inside, there’s genuine space for five adults, and there’s a 10.5 litre central storage bin, as well as 656 litres of boot space with the back seats up, and a very impressive 1,453-litres litres with the seats folded flat.
When the I-Pace arrives in Australia, it’ll be available in a number of trim levels including: Launch Edition, S, SE and SE, with prices starting from $119,000, order books are open now.
