The Jaguar I-Pace will makes its European debut at the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show. Jaguar’s first all-electric vehicle was first unveiled at the 2016 Los Angeles Motor.
Jaguar claims that the I-Pace will have at least a 450km of range on a single charge and it will be able to hit 100 kmph from standstill in around four seconds. A 90-kWh lithium-ion battery sits between the axles, driving two magnetic electric motors for a total power output of 395bhp and 700Nm of torque. The all-electric SUV will be made using an all-new aluminium platform, and the compact size of the electric motors will allow plenty of space in the cabin. Much of the car’s hardware will come from the F-Pace, including the double-wishbone front suspension and the compact integral link rear suspension. The Lithium-Ion batteries have been developed in-house and use pouch cells for their energy density and efficiency.
The I-Pace will garner all the attention at Jaguar’s Geneva stall in an all new ‘Photon Red’ body colour. The British marque’s all-electric SUV is set to be revealed late this year and will hit the road sometime in 2018.
