2019 Jaguar I-Pace
If you’re interested in luxury electrical cars, prepare yourself to include another non-Tesla brand to the list: Jaguar. The automaker has actually revealed the brand new I-Pace, an electric SUV– or hatchback, provided its low-slung look.
2019 Jaguar I-Pace Release Date
The I-Pace is technically still a concept, but Jaguar says it’s production-intent for U.S. car dealerships in the second half of 2018 as a 2019 model. That’s originating from a brand name whose C-X16 and C-X17 ideas later on became (respectively) the F-Type roadster and F-Pace SUV, so whatever the I-Pace becomes, the apple should not fall far from the tree.

It’s a svelte apple at that. The iPace– er, I-Pace– is a low-slung SUV, total with brief overhangs and extra-large, fender-hugging wheels. The C-pillars frame a rear window that’s sloped enough to work on a sedan. The door deals with sit curiously low, lined up with the top of the front wheel well. The nose and tail tread familiar Jaguar area (believe F-Pace), however that’s an advantage, as the brand is on a styling roll nowadays. Absent the garish features and not practical percentages that typically characterize pure concept cars, the I-Pace looks near-production all set. Minus the massive wheels and tiny mirrors, this might mainly become exactly what you see at dealerships in 2018. Jaguar states a production version will debut in late 2017, so stay tuned.
2019 Jaguar I-Pace Interior
Things get a bit more conceptual inside, where the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace has a highway overpass of a center control panel that towers above the rest of the console. Elsewhere are lots of overlapping panels and interesting-looking textures, with high-res display screens for the gauge, multimedia and environment readouts. The cabin seats 5, with futuristic chairs that look like something out of the Enterprise from “Star Trek”– though the high supports would trigger suitable for Riker. It’s anybody’s guess how much of this makes it to the production car.
2019 Jaguar I-Pace Under the Hood
The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace utilizes a 90-kilowatt-hour battery pack, the same capability as Tesla’s ludicrously fast Model S P90D (now the P100D). Jaguar touts substantial performance: With electrical motors driving both axles, the I-Pace makes a combined 400 horsepower and 516 pounds-feet of torque– enough to strike 60 mph in a lickety-split 4 seconds approximately, which has to do with as fast as an F-Type R with its supercharged V-8. The brand targets around 220 miles of range in EPA test cycles, a figure only Tesla and the Chevrolet Bolt can surpass. The I-Pace accepts DC quick charging, and Jaguar says it can hit 80 percent of its charge in 90 minutes.
2019 Jaguar I-Pace Price
Prices is probably the greatest mystery here, but it’s safe to assume that the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace will not be cheap. Electric vehicles are usually more expensive than fuel-powered cars, with the most affordable examples priced from around $30,000 before incentives. However we’re speaking about non-premium vehicles, so I wouldn’t bet on this Jag being that low-cost. Opportunities are it will cost a minimum of $50,000, if not $55,000 prior to alternatives. When those rewards begin, you may be able to buy one for less than $50K though. Some sources claim that the very first electric Jag could really cost as much as $70,000 though.
