Jaguar I-PACE – A New World of Possibility – Videos

JUN 7 2018 BY MARK KANE 24

Jaguar enters the final phase of promoting the I-PACE before the first all-electric Jaguar hits showrooms around the world.

The First units were already delivered, but this is just the beginning. Only a handful of first reservations were noted in April and hopefully more in May (numbers are still flowing in).

In the latest videos, the British brand highlights the performance of the I-PACE and notes that it’s a drivers car. The videos give us a hint of its sound under acceleration too.

A New World of Possibility
Instant sports car acceleration, All Wheel Drive traction and design that opens up a world of possibility. The all-electric I-PACE is a true drivers’ car, our vision for the future and above all else, a Jaguar.

The second video is more about track performance:

All-Electric Performance in Portugal
The Jaguar I-PACE powertrain provides 400PS and 696Nm of instant torque. With built-in All Wheel Drive traction, our all-electric performance SUV accelerates from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds (0-60mph in 4.5 seconds), delivering an electrifying driving experience on road and track.

Soon, the I-PACE will be shown at Fully Charged Live, hosted at Silverstone from 9th-10th June. We believe that Jaguar will be the highlight of the event.

Jaguar I-Pace specs:

  • 90 kWh battery for up to 480 km (298 miles) of range (WLTP)
  • 0-100km/h (62 mph) 4.8 seconds / 0-60 mph (sec) 4.5 seconds
  • Top speed mph 200  km/h (124 mph)
  • two permanent magnet electric motors; synchronous – 400 PS (294 kW) total system output
  • all-wheel drive
  • 0-80% DC fast charging in 40 minutes using 100 kW CCS Combo
  • 0-100% AC charging using 7 kW 0n-board charger in nearly 13 hours

This is a j-Pace killer.
Good to see Jag join the club.

Its great… Nice EV tech in a refined and well built package… I had never considered a Jaguar before ordering I-Pace…

The best part of the Fully Charged video was the ‘off-road’ segment where the I-Pace demonstrated its durability (off-road credentials resident in their Land Rover division). Jaguar has clearly invested a lot of effort in providing a multi-faceted vehicle.

I think the I-Pace straddles the space, features, and functionality of all three Teslas and offers a unique proposition not currently available in the market.

I hope Jaguar does well with the I-Pace and demonstrates another way to market and engage with customers seeking a quality EV without a lot of hyper-exuberance.

Here is the Fully Charged Video ……
Surprised InsideEvs haven’t published any of the 20+ reviews of the I-Pace released since Monday 4th June.
I think this review is interesting as Roberts daily driver is a Model S 85

We have several in our drafts. I’m heading to Portugal in a few days to partake as well!

Steven, I hope you can bring yourself to leave your Tesla bias out of the review, and really focus on the Strengths and Weaknesses of the I-Pace. Lets try not to have 30%+ of the review focus on Jags lack of charging network.. haha!

Steven… I ask that we be more sober about the benefits of the SuperCharger network. While it is great for those who utilize the network, it would be helpful to understand how much it is used / not used.

I went with a couple on a vacation trip during a US holiday in their Tesla and I can say there were wait times getting access to a charger on our route that weekend. Unlike a petrol vehicle, it is still unclear whether there will ever be enough Supercharger network capacity during peak volumes.

The SC coverage is significant but there is a long way to get peak volume charging capacity (especially when Model 3 saturation is a way off).

If you complain abort Tesla what can we say about the others that have nothing of such?

Geography matters. You’d discover this as soon as you get unglued from your keyboard and actually start driving around in an EV.

Here is what I discovered where I live and drive – the Northern tip of Virginia. There are 3 active Tesla “supercharger” clusters, and one shows up as unavailable (not sure if just busy or out of service).

Let’s say it’s 4 on a good day.

At the same time the count for regular DC fast charger stations is 5 working, 1 “under construction”, plus one at each Chevrolet dealerships that sells Volts and Bolts, even if its not on the Plugshare map – I have checked.

Let’s say 5 on a bad day.

“Lets try not to have 30%+ of the review focus on Jags lack of charging network”
Because you don’t like to focus on negatives, right? Nevermind.

If you are able to fully charge the battery every night – and don’t travel more than 300miles a day it is not an issue (& I drive 25k miles per year) and that is my scenario – so how relevant would a supercharger network be to me?
So, for me, I have other priorities.

I am fine, but in a car review I prefer to hear about the car, Its OK, to mention the lack of supercharging at the beginning or end…

That’s right, make friends with the staff by implying non-existent bias, since your positions are completely fair-minded, and contain only reasoned, thoughtful, views.
Ha, ha.
How about lets not bother with them until there are 10k of them on the road.

Steven, can you also include the I-Pace in the charts you produce regarding battery size vs price etc.
The I-Pace has been available to order since March (2018) …. and customers will soon be getting their cars – so its not as if its just some concept car.

Have Fun!

Thanks! Just about to head out!

What are the prices of the different trims?

I ordered a First Edition which comes with almost every option and 20″ wheels for $87,470, the 22″ wheels are $1700 extra, but I was worried they will make the ride too harsh, and it seems some of the reviews have confirmed that. Jaguar also has a Carbon Fiber option that included interior and exterior bits that add $3850, I did not go for that, as I prefer the Ash wood on the interior, and black bits on the outside

Jaguar is actually promoting the iPace. It’s good, more pressure on all other manufacturers. Hopefully it does a good impression in UK where Tesla is too “foreign”.

They are doing a good job of getting the word out… Nothing is better then having actual cars at the dealerships though for people to test drive, should be later this year. My dealer ordered 3 inventory models, 1 for test drives, and 2 of then they will put additional markups on for people walking in the door (damn scammer dealers). My dealer is currently sold out of allocations until spring 2019. With all the effort Jaguar is putting into promotions, I thing production is going to be better then some expect. I have revised my predictions to 15 to 20K delivered in 2018, and 40 to 50K in 2019, obviously not earth shattering, but this is an expensive car, and building too much production capacity would be an expensive mistake.

JLR have said every vehicle will be built to order

Thats true, dealers usually order the cars… Thats true of most large OEM, unless they need to fill line space, then they will whip out some fleet vehicles.

Boeing does the same thing with airplanes, if there is no order, its called a white tail…

Jaguar could sell more than 100,000 copies of their I-Pace in the next 18 months. They should increase their production capacity.

Jaguar have never sold this many cars (of one particular model) in their history.

Jaguar will introduce more EV models in the coming years.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda, but they won’t. They would go broke selling evs or making them in the numbers you suggest. 25k a year seems to be the target.
