Jaguar is joining the all-electric car club, with a concept vehicle named the I-PACE heralding what drivers can expect to see on the road as soon as 2018.
Designed by legendary car creator Ian Callum, the I-PACE will be able to hit 60mph in around four seconds and travel 220 miles on a full charge.
Jaguar says its engineering and design teams have “torn up the rule book” to create a bespoke electric architecture, matched with dramatic design. The result is a no-compromise smart, five seat sports car and a performance SUV in one.
“The I-PACE Concept represents the next generation of electric vehicle design,” said Callum, Jaguar’s Director of Design. “It’s a dramatic, future-facing cab-forward design with a beautiful interior – the product of authentic Jaguar DNA, electric technology and contemporary craftsmanship.”
Jaguar says I-PACE will offer driver-focused all-wheel-drive performance from twin-electric motors generating 700Nm of torque and 400PS. Powering the I-PACE is a rapid charging of 90kWh battery.
