Jaguar have shared further details of their forthcoming new model, the I-PACE including a 45-minute quick charge time (from zero to 80% charge using a 100kW DC charger) and have also revealed positive AWD test results from sessions in the Arctic circle.
The Jaguar I-PACE will be launched next month ahead of the 2018 Geneva Motorshow, and is expected to add a new dimension to the brand’s offerings. Bookings will open on www.jaguar-me.com the company’s site from March 1, 2018 and deliveries will start before the second half of the year.
Ian Hoban, Jaguar Vehicle Line Director, says, “Not only will the I-PACE charge quickly enough for our customers to carry out their everyday lives, it will offer powerful and precise performance in a variety of conditions and climactic extremes. Allied with the versatile credentials of our celebrated PACE family, this will be an electric performance SUV like no other.”
Customers will be able to use mains power to prepare the car’s battery and cabin temperature ahead of a journey. Pre-conditioning the car ensures maximum range, performance and comfort whether temperatures are freezing cold or extremely hot.
