The Jaguar i-Pace SUV – Jaguar’s first electric car – has been officially revealed this evening, has a 292 mile range, hits 60mph in 4.5 seconds and goes on sale straight way from £58,995.
The new Jaguar i-Pace electric SUV has been revealed in production guise and is, according to Jaguar’s Design boss Ian Callum a bigger game changer than the Jaguar XJ was when it arrived in 1968. And he could be right.
Jaguar has stuck very closely to the Concept i-Pace and delivered a car which is radical and innovative with comfort and performance in seemingly equal measure, and a starting price point which will cause real waves.
In terms of price, the i-Pace S (the entry-level) costs from £58,995, the i-Pace SE from £64,995 and the i-Pace HSE from £69,995 plus a First Edition i-Pace at £76,900 (all after tax payer bribe).
Those figures are impressive – especially as they appear to be easily achieved time after time – as Jaguar demonstrated with a drag race with both a Tesla Model X 75D and then a 100D – and the i-Pace won both.
Inside is a bit more conventional then the exterior and, says Callum previews future Jaguar interiors, with a centre console layout of screens familiar from the Range Rover Velar, materials seem high quality and it all looks very classy. It’s also roomier than the exterior would suggest.
The Jaguar i-Pace is now on sale at Jaguar’s UK dealers, with first customer cars due in the summer.
