(MAHWAH, N.J.) – March 1, 2018 – Jaguar has revealed the 2019 Jaguar I-PACE via live webcast from its manufacturing facility in Graz, Austria.
The 2019 I-PACE takes advantage of the inherent benefits found with EV packaging, all while offering the driving dynamics expected of all Jaguar vehicles.
In addition, the 2019 I-PACE will be available in three trim levels. Those are: S, SE & HSE, with an extra First Edition model available for the first year only. Most noteworthy all featuring all-wheel drive as standard.
Expect a meaty 90kWh battery powering Jaguar-designed electric motors. Cool alert! They placed Electric Motors on the front and rear axles. Combined and estimated, the I-PACE delivers an estimated range of up to 240 miles1.
Jaguar’s bold proportions are a direct result of the advanced electric drivetrain. Hence, let’s not forget sick architecture that underpins the vehicle. Aka Jaguar’s cab-forward profile of the I-PACE is a natural progression. As well, the well-established design language of the Jaguar brand stands out. Some a the grille design and distinctive sweep of the window frames. These make it ready to identifiable as the newest member of the brand’s expanding ‘PACE’ family of SUVs.
With its exciting proportions and sleek coupe-like silhouette, the I-PACE takes inspiration from the Jaguar C-X75 supercar concept. By incorporating signature design elements that include the following features. They are: sweeping front fenders, integral hood scoop, cab-forward driving place, dramatic curves, muscular haunches. Also, let’s not forget and a striking waistline. As well as imposing available 22-inch wheels.
Aerodynamic features including a low hood, sweeping roofline and squared-off rear. Features that aid the I-PACE in achieving a drag coefficient of just 0.29Cd. Thereby, channelling airflow through the integral hood scoop. Plus over the windshield on a coupe-style roofline to cut drag. Coupled with Airflow for battery cooling and the climate control system passes through. Airflow goes through the grille and active vanes in the front bumper apertures. Opening of course when required.
I know, they drop the car by up to 0.4in (10mm) at speeds above 65mph (105km/h). If ya don’t know, it acts as a way to further cut drag.
Available Premium LED headlights emphasize the clean lines of the I-PACE and feature a compact design that incorporates the trademark Jaguar ‘double-J’ signature daytime running light design.
Standard glass panoramic roof runs the length of the car and floods the cabin with light, giving the interior added sense of space. Both the roof and side windows absorb infrared light, keeping the cabin cool and shading the interior.
A 90kWh lithium-ion battery consisting of 432 pouch cells, chosen for their high energy density and superior thermal management, delivers an estimated EV range of 240 miles.
Standard air suspension with available Adaptive Dynamics featuring continuously variable shock absorbers also give the I-PACE true sporting agility and balance. Self-levelling systems are designed to keep up the best suspension geometry. Yes, that’s even when the vehicle fully loaded and lowered vehicle when at speed to optimize aerodynamic efficiency. As a result, occupants enjoy supreme comfort. Therefore, as the suspension provides combining bump absorption and body control that feels calm and natural in a variety of conditions.
