Thousands of prospective customers across the world have already pressed the ‘I want one’ button on the Jaguar website, to register their interest in the hotly anticipated electric performance SUV. Jaguar is responding by hosting an online broadcast on its social channels, revealing I-PACE to the public and entire world.
Specifications will be announced, and the Jaguar configurator will offer customers the option to configure their own I-PACE.
The I-PACE is Jaguar’s newest member of the PACE family and is the EV drivers have been waiting for, delivering sustainable sports car performance, all-wheel-drive agility and five-seat SUV practicality.
Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, said:
“Since revealing the I-PACE Concept in 2016, we have been counting down to this moment. The all-electric I-PACE is not only a pioneer within our business, it promises to revolutionise the industry. I cannot wait for the world to see everything we have achieved with this car.”
The I-PACE will be capable of rapid charging from zero to 80 per cent in 45 minutes* and has been rigorously tested across extremes of terrain and temperatures from -40°C to 40°C.
With over 2.4 million test kilometres and a further 11,000 hours of rig simulations completed by more than 200 production prototypes, Jaguar’s design and engineering teams have created a world-class all-electric SUV.
The official public debut of I-PACE will be at the Geneva Motor Show on 6 March.
