The Jaguar I-Pace is inching closer to production and now we’re starting to get an idea how much the model will cost when it goes on sale next year.

According to Autoblog.nl, the entry-level I-Pace S will start at €82,000 and come equipped with LED headlights, a Meridian audio system, and 18-inch alloy wheels. An additional €8,000 will get drivers the I-Pace SE which features leather upholstery, a power-operated tailgate, adaptive cruise control, and 20-inch alloy wheels.

The I-Pace HSE is slated to start at €97,000 and come with additional equipment such as 18-way power front seats, heated seats, a Meridian surround sound system, and LED Matrix headlights. Buyers who want a fully-loaded model can reportedly opt for the I-Pace First Edition which costs €106,00 and includes all the aforementioned equipment as well as a panorama glass roof, a head-up display, and an air suspension.

Since prices vary by country, Jalopnik reached out to the automaker and a spokesperson hinted the model would cost 10-15% more than the F-Pace which starts at $42,065. While that seems to imply the model could cost between $46,271 and $48,374, the F-Pace S starts at $59,775 which would presumably mean the I-Pace S would retail for between $65,752 and $68,741.

Jaguar hasn’t released final specifications but the I-Pace concept had a 90 kWh battery and an electric powertrain developed approximately 400 hp (298 kW) and 516 lb-ft (698 Nm) of torque. This enabled the crossover to accelerate from 0-60 mph in approximately four seconds and travel up to 220 miles (354 km) on a single charge.

Is The Jaguar I-Pace A Worthy Tesla Model X Rival? 7

That’s a pretty daring question to ask, considering that Jaguar’s new electric crossover has not been unveiled yet, but everything about it sounds promising.

Starting with the elegant exterior, moving through the high-tech cabin that offers plenty of space for passengers, and ending with the driver assistance equipment, the Jaguar I-Pace seems to have plenty going for it.

Even the numbers look good: 0-100km/h (62mph) in about 4sec, and 400PS (394hp) and 700Nm (516lb-ft) of torque coming from the electric motors mounted on both axles, backed up by a 90kWh battery that’s believed to allow it to cover some 500km (310 miles) between charges.

The sporty suspension may be on the stiff side, but the Jaguar I-Pace absorbs most bumps in the road comfortably, even when equipped with 22-inch wheels.

However, is that enough to worry Tesla and BMW’s upcoming ‘ix’ range of fully electric SUVs after it debuts next March, at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show? Let’s see what AutoExpress have to say in their shotgun review of a pre-production model, in sunny California, but we’ll give you a hint: it’s exciting.

Road-Going Jaguar I-Pace Launching At Geneva Motor Show 7

Posted by Brad Anderson in Electric Vehicles, Geneva Motor Show, Jaguar, Jaguar I-Pace, Reports, SUV on 12 7th, 2017


Jaguar has confirmed that the production-spec I-Pace will premiere at March’s Geneva Motor Show.

The eye-catching crossover is the carmaker’s first all-electric vehicle and will directly rival the Tesla Model X. Unlike the Tesla, however, the I-Pace won’t look like a bloated¬ sedan and instead more closely resemble a sporty luxury car fitting of the Jaguar badge.

As we’ve seen from recent spy shots, the road-going I-Pace will be very similar to the original concept in terms of both its interior and exterior designs. As such, the crossover will adopt very short front and rear overhangs, allowing Jaguar designers to maximize interior space and to keep the vehicle’s dimensions within a normal range.

One of the biggest question marks about the new I-Pace relates to its powertrain. In concept form, the vehicle uses electric motors at both the front and rear axles, producing a combined 400 hp and 700 Nm of torque with permanent all-wheel drive. A 90 kWh battery was also featured, as was a range of 310 miles (500 km).

After taking a passenger ride in an I-Pace prototype recently, Autocar reports that the SUV is very quick and Jaguar asserts that the engineering will remain true to the concept. If that’s the case, no significant mechanical alterations are to be expected.

European sales of the Jaguar I-Pace will commence immediately after the car’s Geneva debut. Later in 2018, the I-Pace will launch in the United States.

Jaguar Putting Final Touches On Electric I-Pace SUV Ahead Of Early 2018 Reveal 6

Jaguar’s upcoming all-electric I-Pace SUV is entering final validation testing ahead of its global reveal in early 2018.

Jaguar has successfully tested over 200 prototypes of the I-Pace, covering 1.5 million miles and 11,000 hours of component rig testing and now says that we’re only months away from seeing the final production version at its showrooms.

“After 1.5 million global test miles, the I-PACE is ready for production and is proven to deliver long distances on a single charge,” said Ian Hoban, Jaguar Vehicle Line Director. “Jaguar’s first battery electric vehicle will also be fast to charge; our target is a zero to 80 per cent charge being achievable in a short break.”

Thousands of potential customers have already placed a deposit or registered their interest in buying the British electric SUV, with Jaguar having invited a lucky few of them to accompany their engineers in the final validation tests of the I-Pace.

For example, Ann Voyer from Pasadena wanted to find out if the I-Pace would have enough range to complete her favorite road trip along California’s West Coast and Jaguar took her on a long-distance 200-mile range test -between Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, and Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo- which was completed on a single charge.

Jaguar will announce the full specs and pricing of the new all-electric I-Pace SUV in March 2018, when the order books will officially open.

Land Rover Will Offer Its Own Version Of The Jaguar I-Pace 5
Dec
Posted by Michael Gauthier in Jaguar, Jaguar I-Pace, Land Rover, Reports on 12 5th, 2017


Jaguar is gearing up to launch its I-Pace in the second half of 2018 and a new report is suggesting Land Rover will eventually receive its own version of the electric crossover.

In an interview with Drive, Land Rover Chief Creative Officer Gerry McGovern confirmed the variant was inevitable. He declined to say when the model will be launched or how it will be positioned but the designer confirmed the vehicle will have to be capable off-road.

That’s not much to go on but focusing on the model’s off-road capabilities would be one way to distinguish it from the Jaguar I-Pace. The model would also have unique styling with plenty of Land Rover DNA.

There’s no word on what Land Rover’s version of the I-Pace will look like but McGovern said electric powertrains open up a number of possibilities as the elimination of a conventional engine frees up a significant amount of space. As he explained, “Do you want to utilize that space for all types of innovative features. Do you put all that extra space inside? That does fundamentally change the volume and proportions of the vehicle, which is crucially important to design.”

Assuming Land Rover’s variant remains faithful to the I-Pace, we can expect the model to have a 90 kWh battery and an electric powertrain that develops approximately 400 hp (298 kW) and 516 lb-ft (698 Nm) of torque. This should enable the crossover to accelerate from 0-60 mph in around four seconds and have a range in excess of 220 miles (354 km) on a single charge.

New Jaguar I-Pace Looks Ready For Its Big Debut To Take On Tesla Model X 29

Posted by Carscoops Staff in Jaguar, Jaguar I-Pace, Jaguar Scoops, Scoops on 11 29th, 2017


Automakers out testing new vehicles go to great lengths to keep them from prying eyes. But some lean into it, like Jaguar has with the forthcoming I-Pace.

The British automaker has been spotted by the shutterbugs at CarPix once again testing a pair of prototypes for its soon-to-be-released electric crossover, not only covered in camouflage but emblazoned with hashtags.

Jaguar first showed us the I-Pace as a concept this time last year at the 2016 LA Auto Show. Since then we’ve seen it repainted from silver to red at the Geneva Motor Show, converted to track spec for the eTrophy series, and out testing several times.

Just when it will debut in final production form, we don’t know – but we do know most of the details. The production Jaguar I-Pace is expected to pack a 90-kWh battery pack and a pair of electric motors (one at each axle) to deliver the electric equivalent of roughly 400 horsepower, giving it a 0-60 time of around four seconds.

It’s also slated to boast enough range to drive for 310 miles on the New European Driving Cycle, or 220 miles by the more conservative US EPA’s standards. Either way, a 90-minute quick charge is anticipated to top it up to 80 percent capacity.

Jaguar To Shuffle Around Battery Pack For Future EVs 3
Nov
Posted by Brad Anderson in Electric Vehicles, Jaguar, Jaguar I-Pace, Reports, SUV on 11 3rd, 2017


Jaguar has revealed that it will have to shuffle around the battery pack of the all-electric I-Pace when producing other EVs.

The British marque made the decision to give the I-Pace an SUV-shaped body as it allowed its engineers to implement a higher roofline, allowing for the battery pack to be mounted under a raised floor, Auto Express reports.

However, non-SUV EVs from Jaguar won’t have things so easy, particularly if they are low-slung sports cars and sedans. Consequently, batteries will have to be spread out throughout the vehicle, design director Ian Callum said.

“We know that we’ll have to be flexible in how the battery packs are built up. They don’t necessarily need to be a single slab in one area, as long as they’re properly interconnected.

“So yes, we’re looking at various configurations as we look beyond the I-Pace – particularly to help with the H-point [the height of the occupants’ hips] in the rear seats because that’s really one of the defining areas,” Callum said.

At this stage, no concrete information has been released about what electric vehicles will follow the I-Pace. However, we recently learned that the I-Pace’s platform will probably be used by other models.
