Jaguar I-Pace electric vehicle hits the streets
AMMAN, 8 days ago
Jaguar has unleashed its first electric vehicle – the Jaguar I-Pace – onto the streets for the first time.
Jaguar’s first electric vehicle, the Jaguar I-Pace, which will be revealed in late 2017 and will be on the road in the second half of 2018.
The I-Pace will be a long distance sprinter that accelerates from 0 to 100 km per hour in around four seconds, with a range of more than 500 km on a single charge. The high-tech 90kWh lithium ion battery is easy and quick to charge, with 80 percent charge achieved in just 90 minutes using 50kW DC charging.
Compact, lightweight electric motors at the front and rear axles generate a combined output of 400PS and 700 Nm of torque, with the all-weather benefits of all-wheel drive. The I-Pace will also deliver the agility, comfort and elegance that will set it apart from all other electric vehicles: It will be a true Jaguar and a true drivers’ car.
“The feedback on the I-Pace Concept has been fantastic. With the I-Pace Concept we’ve torn up the rule book to create a vehicle with supercar inspired aesthetics, sports car performance and SUV space, in one electric package. It has surprised people and the enthusiasm for our first electric vehicle has been beyond all my expectations,” said Ian Callum, director of design at Jaguar.
He added: “Driving the concept on the streets is really important for the design team. It’s very special to put the car outside and in the real-world. You can see the true value of the I-Pace’s dramatic silhouette and powerful proportions when you see it on the road, against other cars. The I-Pace Concept represents the next generation of battery electric vehicle design. For me, the future of motoring has arrived.” - TradeArabia News Service
