Jaguar’s I-Pace has long been a golden standard within the world of electrified automotive platforms, and for 2021, the company has decided to raise the bar, once again. Today, the brand revealed its newest update to the transcendental car, bolstering the mid-sized performance SUV with a hefty suite of technological upgrades to set it apart from the pack.
Its sleek exterior is adorned in cleanly-tailored linework and subtle curvature, adopting a low-slung appearance, and giving it a more sporty stance to take on the urban environment. Below its hood, a pair of dual electric motors gift the vehicle an impressive 394 HP and 513 lb-ft of torque. But if you’re hoping to travel the full 292-mile range of the platform’s 90 kWh battery, there has to be some kind of redeeming quality — one that will make your trip more appealing, overall. In the case of the I-Pace, there’s a handful. The electrified model now boasts in-cabin air ionization, PM2.5 filtration, an upgraded infotainment system with a dual-modem embedded SIM, wireless charging, 4G data capabilities, and a high-end Meridian sound system, which utilizes 16 different speakers (and a subwoofer) to offer one of the most immersive listening experiences on the market. We’ve only scratched the surface of the new I-Pace, so head over to Jaguar’s website to learn more about the $81,000 model.
