2019 Jaguar I-Pace Giving Tesla A Run For Its Money

2019 jaguar i-pace (1)

Oh, there’s nothing much here except Jaguar revealed that its all-electric I-Pace is due to be released and distributed next year. That only means one thing: Tesla’s monopoly of the EV market is done and over. For years, whenever some rich dude wanted a cool, sexy, functional, and reliable electric vehicle, all he has to choose from are Tesla products. That’s about to change now.

If there’s anything we learned from Tesla regarding EVs it’s that an electric car must have a long driving range and the recharging of battery must be convenient. Now that luxury automakers like Jaguar dipped their well-engineered minds into the market, Tesla will have serious competitions in this market. The new 2019 Jaguar I-Pace is the first luxury EV to roll into distributorship.

Two e-Machines

According to reports, the I-Pace is going to be powered by two electric motors, or e-machines in Jaguar jargon. The first one is responsible for driving the front wheels and the second one will be driving the rear wheels through concentric drive transmissions. The I-Pace is a pure electric five-passenger luxury crossover SUV with a standard all-wheel drive.

Everything is developed in-house at Jaguar, including the permanent magnet motors, the battery concept and design, and the software that controls the powertrain and manages the battery. There’s no confirmation from the luxury automaker about the outputs for the I-Pace, but Patel confirmed that it will have an output of 400 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. It will also have a range of 300 miles before a recharge is needed.

There are no details yet about the pricing, but Jaguar said that it will release the list on March 6, 2018, which isn’t really too far from where we are now. Once it goes on sale, the I-Pace will be offered in three trim levels: S, SE, and HSE. There’s, of course, a limited production First Edition version that will be priced higher than the actual production model.

6 Quick Facts About the Jaguar I-Pace

The Jaguar I-Pace finally makes it to the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Although the electric vehicle is still in its concept form, the photos and information released about it were great so far.

Check out the 6 quick facts about the new Jaguar I-Pace here based on a source:

1. Debut

The I-Pace Concept first appeared at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. It marks its arrival in Europe at the 87th Geneva Motor Show.

2. Power Unit

The electric sport utility vehicle is powered by two 200hp electric motors. The power units generate a total of 400 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The output lets the auto accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just four seconds.

The EV is equipped with liquid-cooled 90 kWh battery with cells from LG Chem. The battery pack allows the SUV to cover a range of more or less 220 miles from a full charge.

The I-Pace also features at least 50 kWh DC fast charging with CCS Combo that takes it to 80 percent charge in just 90 minutes and full charge at around two hours. Jaguar offers an optional 7 kW home charging point too for the convenience of its customers.

3. Exterior

The Jaguar concept EV retained its look when it was introduced in LA last year. The auto resembles the shape of the Tesla Model X but with the styling elements found in the Jaguar F-Pace.

The I-Pace is 184 inches long and 74.4 inches wide. This time, the I-Pace comes in photon red paint finish similar to the image shown above.

4. Interior

The I-Pace offers a lot of space in its cabin thanks to the low positioning of its battery on the front and rear axle. The vehicle has a five-seating capacity. Again, the interior mirrors many things found in the F-Pace.

5. Tech

The notable tech features within the I-Pace include a 12-inch touchscreen, 5.5-inch touchscreen for infotainment and climate control, Wi-Fi hotspot plus improved connectivity for onboard and smartphone apps.

6. Photos

Top 3 Expectations About The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace

2019-jaguar-i-pace-test-mule-spy-shots-2

The Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV concept was unveiled during the Los Angeles Auto Show last week. Days after, a test mule for the production version has been spotted and reviews and speculations are in order.

Although this wasn’t the first time the test mule was spotted in the wild, this one was different since the production design seems to be final. The launch, according to reports, will be somewhere in the middle of 2018 with this being a 2019 model.

1. New Platform

The test mule used the body of an F-Pace SUV, though Jaguar said this was not the same platform that will be used for the production version of the I-Pace. The front design has the usual grille opening, which design is far different from the one we see on the F-Pace. There are also no air vents on either side of the bumper anymore. The wheelbase was stretched, the track was widened and the roof has been lowered.

The platform that will be used on the I-Pace will have the “skateboard” design. This will allow the battery to sit in the floor and power the electric motors on both axles. The production of the I-Pace will be in a different plant from the F-Pace, probably at the Magna Steyr of Australia.

2. Electric Power

The I-Pace will feature a 90-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery paired with two 200-horsepower electric motors that has a range of up to 220 miles. Reports said that the I-Pace can go 0-60 mph in just 4 seconds.

Rivals of the I-Pace include the Tesla Model S, an upcoming electric vehicle from Mercedes-Benz, and the possible electric version of the next-generation Audi S7.

3. Pioneer in Jaguar

Jaguar just announced that its diving into a series of vehicles with mild hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric flavors. Along with its sister company Land Rover, Jaguar will be focusing on heralding a new breed of sedans for the environment-conscious consumers. Land Rover will focus on the hybrids while Jaguar is working on the electric vehicles.
