Plugging In: Jaguar Debuts I-Pace e-SUV

More than just a battery-car, I-Pace rethinks automotive design.

by on Mar.01, 2018

The new Jaguar I-Pace is the luxury brand's new battery electric sport-utility vehicle.

It took years for Jaguar management to approve the marque’s first station wagon. But these days, few brands have been more willing to challenge tradition – and its clearly paying off, the F-Pace SUV becoming almost overnight Jag’s best-selling model.

Soon, there’ll be three utes in the line-up, but the one that might give traditionalists the biggest shock made its debut in Graz, Austria today. And it’s not just Jaguar fans who are in for some surprises. The new I-Pace is not only the brand’s first all-electric offering but it boasts a radically different design language, inside and out, meant to take maximum advantage of its battery drivetrain.

EV News!

With the batteries, motors and most other key components moved from the engine compartment to underneath the load floor, the Jaguar I-Pace delivers a positively massive cabin inside an otherwise compact footprint. It’s the sort of dramatic transformation that is likely to sweep through the auto industry as more and more manufacturers electrify their products. (more…)

Jaguar is hoping that buyers will also flip for its new E-Pace SUV. The stunt earned a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Jaguar is hoping buyers will flip for the company’s new SUV, so it decided to have the E-Pace turn head-over-heels during a splashy London debut today. What’s clear is that the 50-foot jump, complete with a 270-degree barrel roll has earned Jaguar’s second SUV a Guinness World Record.

The E-Pace makes its appearance barely two years after the debut of the F-Pace, the larger utility vehicle now Jaguar’s best-selling offering – and together they reflect the dramatic shift in the global automotive market. In the U.S., in particular, utility models now account for more than 40% of overall vehicle sales, and they’re rapidly gaining traction in the luxury segment.

The five-seat compact SUV is based on a shortened version of the Lightweight Aluminum Architecture used for the F-Pace, as well as the 2016 Jaguar XF and the XE compact luxury sedan. The British maker has already revealed that it will reach showrooms early next year at a base price of $38,600 plus $995 delivery charges. (more…)
