Not only will these customers be at the front of the queue when order books officially open globally in March. However a lucky few have been chosen to accompany Jaguar’s engineers as prototype vehicles. All complete final validation tests.
So Ann Voyer from Pasadena, California. She has, asked Jaguar if the I-PACE would have enough range. For that’s to complete her favorite road trip along California’s West Coast. To answer her question, Jaguar engineers took her on a long-distance range test.
Most importantly that’s on one charge only.
For the I-PACE production prototype drove 200 miles from Los Angeles’ Sunset Boulevard to Central California’s Morro Bay. All on a single charge of its advanced Lithium-Ion battery!’
Ian Hoban, Jaguar Vehicle Line Director, said: “After 1.5 million global test miles, the I-PACE is ready for production. Moreover it is proven to deliver long distances on a single charge. Jaguar’s first battery electric vehicle will also be fast to charge. For our target is a zero to 80 percent charge being achievable in a short break.”
Full specification and pricing for the Jaguar electric performance SUV will be announced in early 2018 when order books will officially open and a production version of the car is shown.
