If you’re interested in high-end electrical cars, prepare to include another non-Tesla brand to the list: Jaguar. The car manufacturer has actually unveiled the all-new I-Pace, an electrical SUV– or hatchback, provided its low-slung look.
2019 Jaguar I-Pace Release Date
The I-Pace is technically still an idea, however Jaguar states it’s production-intent for U.S. dealerships in the second half of 2018 as a 2019 model. That’s coming from a brand whose C-X16 and C-X17 principles later on ended up being (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 large, fender-hugging wheels. The C-pillars frame a back window that’s sloped enough to work on a sedan. The door handles sit curiously low, aligned with the top of the front wheel well. The nose and tail tread familiar Jaguar area (believe F-Pace), however that’s a good idea, as the brand name is on a styling roll these days.
Absent the garish features and impractical proportions that typically identify pure concept cars, the I-Pace looks near-production prepared. Minus the huge wheels and small mirrors, this might mainly become exactly what you see at dealers in 2018. Jaguar states a production variation will debut in late 2017, so remain 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 board that towers above the remainder of the console. In other places are plenty of overlapping panels and interesting-looking textures, with high-res display screens for the gauge, multimedia and climate readouts. The cabin seats five, with futuristic chairs that appear like something out of the Enterprise from “Star Trek”– though the tall backings 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 employs a 90-kilowatt-hour battery pack, the same capacity as Tesla’s ludicrously fast Model S P90D (now the P100D). Jaguar touts substantial performance: With electric motors driving both axles, the I-Pace makes a combined 400 horsepower and 516 pounds-feet of torque– enough to hit 60 mph in a lickety-split 4 seconds approximately, which has to do with as quick as an F-Type R with its supercharged V-8. The brand targets approximately 220 miles of variety in EPA test cycles, a figure only Tesla and the Chevrolet Bolt can surpass. The I-Pace accepts DC quick charging, and Jaguar states it can strike 80 percent of its charge in 90 minutes.
2019 Jaguar I-Pace Price
Pricing is perhaps the greatest secret here, however it’s safe to presume that the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace will not be cheap. Electric vehicles are normally more pricey than fuel-powered cars, with the most inexpensive examples priced from around $30,000 prior to incentives. However we’re speaking about non-premium vehicles, so I wouldn’t bet on this Jag being that low-cost. Chances are it will cost at least $50,000, if not $55,000 prior to options. When those incentives kick in, you might be able to buy one for less than $50K though. Some sources declare that the first electric Jag might in fact cost as much as $70,000 though.
