Electric, and therefore ecological, with fantastic sports performances, considerable personality, a characteristic British style with an international touch – in short, a vehicle with excellent practicality and extreme flexibility. An authentic triumph. Since its launch just over a year ago, the I-PACE has earned 66 recognitions throughout the world, including the European Car of the Year 2019 and the German, Norwegian and UK Car of the Year awards. A fair recognition of the technical excellence of the zero-emission propulsion system, designed and developed entirely by Jaguar. «Exploiting all the advantages of the latest technologies, both in terms of battery and electric engines» said Ian Hoban, Powertrain Director at Jaguar Land Rover, «we have managed to build a vehicle of absolute level. Besides zero emissions, the all-electric propulsion system offers perfect balance between performance, elegance and autonomy, together with exceptional responsiveness, agility and daily use». The I-Pace, designed by Ian Callum, has four-wheel drive, a 400 CV engine, 696 Nm torque and accelerates from 0 to 100 Km/h in 4.8 seconds flat. The real heart of it all, however, is the 90 kWh Lithium battery which provides an autonomy of 470 kilometres (in the WLTP cycle) and, with continuous 100 kW electrical current, an 80% recharge only takes 40 minutes or, using a normal domestic wallbox at an alternating current of 7 kW, it takes 10 hours, ideal for overnight recharging. The battery is mounted centrally between the two axles, in the lowest possible position for obtaining a low barycentre and perfect distribution of the 50:50 weight which, together with the front double wishbone suspension and the rear Integra Link system, is essential for the I-PACE’s exceptional drivability and handling.
