Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 3 March 2018:  The Jaguar I-PACE is the electric vehicle drivers have been waiting for Clean, smart and safe, the I-PACE delivers sustainable sports car performance, next-generation artificial intelligence (AI) technology and five-seat SUV practicality to place Jaguar at the forefront of the EV revolution. 
 
“We set out with a clean sheet approach to harness new battery electric technology with an architecture engineered from the outset to optimise EV performance, aerodynamics and interior space. The result is the I-PACE – a true Jaguar and an electric dream come true.
 
“For I-PACE customers – fuel stations are a thing of the past, after overnight charging they'll wake up every morning with a ‘full tank of fuel'!”
Ian Hoban, Jaguar Vehicle Line Director
 
ELECTRIC
With a state-of-the-art 90kWh Lithium-ion battery using 432 pouch cells, the I-PACE delivers a range of 480km (WLTP cycle). Owners will be able to achieve a 0-80 per cent battery charge in just 40-minutes using DC rapid charging (100kW). Home charging with an AC wall box (7kW) will achieve the same state of charge in just over ten hours – ideal for overnight charging.
 
A suite of smart range-optimising technologies includes a battery pre-conditioning system: when plugged in the I-PACE will automatically raise (or lower) the temperature of its battery to maximise range ahead of driving away.
 
PERFORMANCE
Two Jaguar-designed electric motors – which feature driveshafts passing through the motors themselves for compactness – are placed at each axle, producing exceptional performance of 400PS and 696Nm and all-wheel-drive, all-surface traction.
 
The high torque density and high-energy efficiency characteristics of the motors deliver sports car performance, launching the I-PACE from a standing start to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds. The instantaneous performance is matched with exceptional ride comfort and engaging driving dynamics. 
 
The bespoke EV aluminium architecture delivers Jaguar's most rigid body structure with the battery placed centrally between the two axles; these utilise advanced double wishbone front and an Integral Link rear setup with (optional) air suspension and configurable Adaptive Dynamics. The location of the battery enables perfect 50:50 weight distribution and a centre of gravity some 130mm lower than in the F-PACE. 
 
DESIGN
There will be nothing else on the road that looks or drives like the Jaguar I-PACE. It is designed and engineered to take full advantage of its smart electric powertrain and maximise the potential of the packaging benefits it brings. 
 
Its sleek, coupe-like silhouette is influenced by the Jaguar C-X75 supercar with a short, low bonnet, aero-enhanced roof design and curved rear screen. This cab-forward design contrasts with its squared-off rear, which helps reduce the drag co-efficient to just 0.29Cd. To optimise the balance between cooling and aerodynamics, Active Vanes in the grille open when cooling is required, but close when not needed to redirect air through the integral bonnet scoop, smoothing airflow.
 
Inside, the layout optimises space for passengers while sophisticated materials – including the option of a premium textile Kvadrat interior – and exquisite attention to detail identify this as a true Jaguar.
 
While a mid-sized SUV, I-PACE's cab forward design and EV powertrain means interior space comparable to large SUVs. In the rear, legroom is 890mm while, with no transmission tunnel, there's a useful 10.5-litre central storage compartment. In the rear, tablet and laptop stowage is found beneath the seats, while the rear luggage compartment offers a 656-litre capacity – and 1,453-litres with seats folded flat.
 
CONNECTED-CAR TECHNOLOGY
I-PACE introduces the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system to Jaguar. Utilising an innovative combination of touchscreens, capacitive sensors and tactile physical controls, Touch Pro Duo is intuitive to use.
 
A new EV navigation system assesses the topography of the route to destination and insights from previous journeys, including driving style, to calculate personalised range and charging status with exceptional accuracy for maximum driver confidence.
 
The advanced system uses ‘Smart Settings' technology – driven by AI algorithms – to identify individual driver preferences, and then tailors the I-PACE's driving and interior settings accordingly.
 
OWNERSHIP
With competitive whole-life costs and residual values, the I-PACE will be a popular choice for private customers, professionals and companies seeking to reduce their carbon footprint and fleet costs.
The I-PACE is expected to be available in the MENA region from late 2019 with a wider roll out in 2020. Please contact your local retailer for more information.
 
As a responsible business Jaguar Land Rover is committed to delivering a cleaner future and has plans to prolong the life of its batteries from its electric vehicle with new recycling partnerships and second life energy storage trials.
