The Jaguar I-PACE is powered by a 90 kWh battery that delivers 294 kW power and 696 Nm torque, allowing the I-PACE to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 4.8 s.
The I-Pace’s linear acceleration is instantaneous with no lag and no gear shift interruptions. Its 294 kW (395 BHP) of peak power takes you from 0-100 km/h in only 4.8 s. The 90 kWh battery is positioned within the floor, between the axles, giving a low center of gravity and near-perfect weight distribution. The I-PACE is underpinned by an advanced electric vehicle architecture created specifically for this car that delivers excellent driving dynamics while minimizing weight. The double-wishbone suspension at the front and integral link suspension at the rear has been tuned to give the I-PACE the perfect balance of dynamic handling and refinement.
I-PACE features the latest & more driver-focused technology and is the first Jaguar in India to offer Pivi Pro Infotainment System. The 31.24 cm (12.3) HD instrument cluster features completely revised graphics to give an even clearer indication of the battery state of charge. The I-PACE is available with a wireless device charging pad beneath the ‘floating’ center console. Wireless charging also includes signal boosting, ensuring the phone’s signal remains strong for longer. A Smartphone Pack with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ is available, as is Bluetooth technology which can pair two phones simultaneously ensuring you’ll always be connected.
Inside the cabin, the ClearSight Rear View Mirror improves vision and convenience by ensuring the driver always has an unobstructed view of the road behind even with three people in the rear seat. It uses a wide-angle, rear-facing camera linked to a high-resolution screen within the frameless glass mirror. A small toggle switch on the mirror allows the driver to switch seamlessly between the view from the standard mirror and the camera feed. The I-Pace is equipped with Software over the Air (SOTA) functionality. This means Systems including infotainment, battery management, and charging can be updated remotely. Using the vehicle’s built-in data connection, the latest software can be downloaded automatically. All occupants benefit from the enhanced climate control system, which delivers smart, energy-efficient heating or cooling of up to four zones independently. When charging, customers can use the I-PACE’s pre-conditioning system (which optimizes battery temperature) to also purge the cabin of allergens and ultrafine particles before beginning a journey.
