2018 Jaguar E-Pace First Review

2018 Jaguar I-PACE

It's only natural that the industry is going to look to make comparisons between Jaguar and Tesla.

The I-Pace is not a vehicle the lends itself well to a suitable comparison to the Model S or the Model X, but given the fact it is an SUV coupe, the Model X is the most obvious.

Storage in the I-Pace is listed at 1453 litres with the rear seats folded flat, and 656 litres when upright. Two levels of regenerative braking - high or low - will offer a choice of how quickly the vehicle slows itself when you lift of the accelerator. In its strongest mode, one-pedal driving is feasible when drivers turn off the car's creep mode.

Jaguar has stuck very closely to the Concept i-Pace and delivered a vehicle which is radical and innovative with comfort and performance in seemingly equal measure, and a starting price point which will cause real waves. Total output is 400 metric horsepower, with a maximum torque of 696 Nm (513 lb-ft). A single-speed transmission shuttles power to the ground. Like other new Jaguars, there will also be a top-spec First Edition.

The 90kWh lithium-ion battery pack is placed beneath the cabin floor designed on a dedicated platform for BEVs.

It rides on double-wishbone suspension up front and an integral-link rear, while air suspension and configurable Adaptive Dynamics options will be offered at an as-yet undefined extra cost. An air suspension is standard equipment.

Styling remains nearly unchanged from the I-Pace Concept which debuted more than a year ago. Jaguar Land Rover will build the I-PACE in Austria as part of a manufacturing partnership with Magna Steyr.

The I-Pace's interior looks very 21st-century, which is a side effect of replacing most of the instrument panel with screens.

She entered the field as a massive underdog and came out of it an Olympic champion skier. "They were unbelievable today ". The athletes were not hyped up to be gold medal favorites, like household names Shaun White and Mikaela Shiffrin.

If you're down with smart assistants, the I-Pace will have its own Amazon Alexa skill. The I-Pace's front trunk, or frunk, opens to reveal less than a cubic foot of additional cargo space.

The I-Pace uses the key fob and smartphone Bluetooth signal to recognise an approaching driver and learns their preferences so that it can set the climate control, infotainment and seat settings to their individual preferences every time they get behind the wheel.

A long wheelbase of 2,990 mm with an overall vehicle length of 4,682 mm gives the vehicle a similar footprint to the Jaguar F-PACE, but with the interior space of a larger vehicle. That's nearly exactly the same overall length of the Jaguar XE sedan but with a wheelbase that's half a foot longer.

I-PACE is on sale now from GBP63,495 in the UK.

The I-Pace's electric powertrain isn't its only tech trick.

The I-PACE will also usher in Jaguar's new infotainment system, dubbed Jaguar InControl Touch Pro Duo.

The I-PACE has been designed and engineered by Jaguar Land Rover in the United Kingdom and the country will remain the heartland of Jaguar Land Rover's manufacturing, engineering and design operations.
