H&S Magazine Car Of The Week Issue 44: Jaguar I-PACE
Our first all-electric performance SUV. 0-100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds, with a range of up to 480km and 0-80 per cent battery charge in just 45-minutes using DC rapid charging (100kW), I-PACE is the electric vehicle drivers have been waiting for.
Featuring an elegant, highly aerodynamic design with a low drag coefficient of 0.29Cd, I-PACE has been created to provide efficiency by slicing cleanly through the air for maximum range and stability. I-PACE offers excitement from every angle thanks to its flowing waistline, dramatic bonnet scoop and signature rear haunches.
I-PACE seamlessly integrates technology and abundant space. The interior design is clean and uncluttered, with tactile features and sweeping lines. The nature of the electric powertrain offers additional space, providing more freedom to maximise the comfort provided by I-PACE’s interior.
I-PACE: THE DETAILS
One full charge provides a range of 470km (292miles) on the WLTP cycle*.
Instant torque and All Wheel Drive traction gives I-PACE the acceleration of a sports car. It reaches 100km/h (60mph) in 4.8 (4.5) seconds.
I-PACE’s 90kWh battery is made up of high energy density lithium-ion pouch cells. Its design and state-of-the-art thermal management system supports longevity and periods of sustained maximum power.
I-PACE is propelled by two permanent magnet synchronous electric motors. Similar to the technology found in the I‑TYPE Formula E racing car, these motors generate 400PS and 696Nm of torque.
There are five full seats, innovative storage, a substantial rear loadspace of over 1,453 litres and 27 litres in the front storage compartment.
With a 50kW DC rapid charger – the kind found at most public charging stations – I-PACE can achieve up to 270km (168 miles) of range per hour1.
