Jaguar I-Pace Electric SUV Concept

While Jaguar may be a bit fashionably late to the all-electric party, they managed to show up in style nonetheless with the release of the I-Pace this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show. It’s also no coincidence that their second SUV ever released just so happens to be their first electric car. Perhaps Jaguar is working towards a more family-oriented market share? Or maybe it’s their answer to Tesla’s assumed monopoly on battery-electric SUVs. One thing’s for certain, though, it sure looks damn good.

It’s not just looks either. Yeah, of course, there’s the extra luggage space thanks to the absent engine bay, the 12-inch virtual cockpit display in front of the driver’s seat, a 12-inch touchscreen for the multimedia system and a 5.5-inch display designated specifically to climate settings, but where the I-Pace really shines is with its two electric motors. The goal here was to manufacture an electric car that felt like a Jaguar behind the wheel. And with a combined output of 400 horsepower, 516 pound-feet of torque, and a 0-60 time of four seconds, we’re happy to say their goals were certainly met. Each charge of the 90kWh lithium-ion battery also gets you a range of 220 miles, meaning if you drive less than 30 miles a day you would only need charging once a week. Not bad at all. Prices are yet to be released prior to its mid-2018 release.
