Jaguar's I-Pace is a speedy dual-motor Model X competitor

2019 Jaguar I-Pace comes with 90kWh Lithium-ion battery with 432 pouch cells and the company claims that it will have a range of 298 miles.

The I-Pace, expected to be in United Kingdom customers' hands by the summer, combines grace, pace and space with battery electric power for Jaguar's first dedicated EV.

The new 2019 Jaguar I-Pace has officially joined the English automaker's line-up as their first electric SUV.

Using a rapid 50kW charger owners will be able to get their I-Pace from 0-80 per cent charge in 85 minutes.

Electrocreaser I Jaguar-Pace design is virtually indistinguishable from pre-production concept auto. In the rear, tablet and laptop stowage is found beneath the seats, while the rear luggage compartment offers a 656-litre capacity - and 1,453-litres with seats folded flat.

The smart satellite navigation installed calculates the most efficient route for the auto so that the electric power can last longer.

At launch it will be available in three trim levels: S, SE and HSE. With space at a premium in its United Kingdom plants Jaguar has contracted Austrian giant Magna-Steyr to build the vehicle. The freshly-released production version nearly perfectly mimics that of the concept, helping to create a new niche segment that Jaguar sees as a major market with the continued advancement of EV tech. Said battery can even charge to 80% in approximately 40 minutes when plugged into a DC fast charger.

On the surface, there is little difference between the I-Pace concept and the production model. The centre console is dominated by Jaguar's new "Touch Duo Pro" infotainment system, which uses two screens and a range of touch-sensitive controls.

Jaguar says the I-Pace's aerodynamic performance is enhanced by a the low hood, sleek roofline and squared-off rear.

A suite of smart range-optimising technologies includes a battery pre-conditioning system: when plugged in the I-PACE will automatically raise (or lower) the temperature of its battery to maximise range ahead of driving away. EV navigation will work intuitively with the driver's tendencies and factor in route topography to determine battery range. Lastly the I-Pace will also arrive with Amazon Alexa Sill, which lets owners ask Alexa for information about their vehicle. A fully specified First Edition costs 81,495 pounds.

Inside the cabin the I-Pace is luxurious and practical - rear legroom is 35 inches (890 millimeters), and premium materials are all around: Luxtec and Grained leather, optional textile Kvadrat that's mostly eco thanks to the use of a durable wool blend mixed with recycled technical suede cloth.
