Jaguar I-Pace First Impressions From Bjørn Nyland
It’s time for Bjørn’s initial take on the all-new 2019 Jaguar I-Pace.
Of course, Nyland – being the Tesla fan he is – compares the I-Pace and its features to Tesla’s lineup. This way people that are considering buying an all-electric vehicle in that price range will have a better idea of the pros and cons.
Bjørn says the I-Pace will be a great EV for winter driving. It uses a heat pump, not only for the cabin but also to heat the battery. It also features permanent magnet motors, which means greater efficiency.
However, as we previously shared, even though the I-Pace uses a 90 kWh battery pack, range is not as high as most expected. Nyland makes an assumption that this likely has to do with the car’s drag coefficient and its exorbitant weight.
As usual, Nyland is quite thorough as he takes us through the car and its features. Sadly, he didn’t get an opportunity to drive it, but we’re confident that time will come soon enough.
Video Description via Bjørn Nyland on YouTube:
I checked out the Jaguar I-Pace in a showroom. Unfortunately, I was not able to drive or to click on the displays. It was set in showroom mode which limited pretty much everything. At least you get my first impressions of the interior quality, seat space and overall looks.
