Pretoria, 11 January 2023 – Since its debut the Jaguar I-PACE has won more than 90 global awards, including 2020 AutoTrader South African Car of the Year and the unprecedented treble at the 2019 World Car of the Year Awards, winning World Car Design of the Year, World Green Car and World Car of the Year, reinforcing its status as the benchmark all-electric performance SUV.
With a low centre of gravity, advanced suspension systems and compact, efficient electric motors on each axle, I-PACE offers an unrivalled balance of all-wheel drive performance, refinement and agility – together with impressive real-world range and exceptional comfort and day-to-day usability. The vehicle’s technology and features have continually improved using seamless software-over-the-air updates – with more still to come.
Now, I-PACE has been subtly enhanced, with a more distinctive design, richer specifications, the addition of R-Dynamic models and – for the first time – striking satin paints in a choice of two metallic colours.
Nick Collins, Executive Director, Vehicle Programmes, said: “I-PACE has always offered a comprehensive package of performance, agility, technology and everyday usability that customers expect from a Jaguar, together with the smooth, quiet and effortless driving experience that electrification offers. We’ve delivered exactly that, and now it’s our latest model to benefit from our approach of offering more curated, richer specifications.
“Looking to the future we’re applying the know-how from our electrified vehicle programmes and accelerated technological development enabled by our collaborative partnership with the Jaguar TCS Racing Team to reimagine Jaguar as an all-electric modern luxury brand from 2025.”
The I-PACE’s cab-forward profile, short overhangs and taut, muscular haunches are instantly recognisable and set it apart from other all-electric SUVs. This award-winning design has now evolved, with subtle, carefully considered enhancements which deliver even greater presence.
The front grille now has a smooth form, in striking Atlas Grey. Replacing the previous gloss black lozenge pattern, this gives a simpler, cleaner finish to the front of the vehicle while strengthening its inherently electric DNA. Atlas Grey is also applied to the vertical blades at the outside of the front apertures. A further detail change is the new black and silver Jaguar badge in the grille.
The front bumper finishers, lower door finishers and rear diffuser are now body-colour instead of Gloss Black. This treatment serves to simplify and refine the design while taking away visual mass.
There’s also the option of a contrast panoramic roof, which for the first time enables customers to specify a black finish for the rear section of the roof – until now body-coloured – to complement the sweeping glass panel.
Customers can also specify satin paints for the first time. Offered in a choice of Eiger Grey or new Carpathian Grey, these finishes give I-PACE a sophisticated, contemporary look.
Performance and Dynamics
I-PACE delivers a true Jaguar driving experience. With light, compact and efficient electric motors integrated into the front and rear axles, I-PACE can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 4.8 seconds and up to maximum speed of 200km/h.
Delivering comfort and agility without compromise is what has always made Jaguar unique. I-PACE’s advanced double wishbone front- and Integral Link rear suspension are fundamental to this dynamic capability, together with the low centre of gravity and light, stiff aluminium body structure. Air suspension with Adaptive Dynamics electronically-controlled damping enhances ride and handling still further.
Range and Charging
I-PACE’s 90kWh Lithium-ion battery delivers a range of up to 470km range (WLTP)3. When charging using the fast-growing network of public chargers, a 100kW DC charger can add up to 127km of range (WLTP) in just 15 minutes. South African customers with three-phase electricity and an 11kW home wall box can add up to 53km of range (WLTP) per hour; a full charge takes only 8.6 hours. Customers with single-phase electricity using 7kW wall boxes can achieve up to 35km of charge per hour and a full charge in 12.75 hours.
To maximise the benefits of off-peak energy there’s the Low Cost Hours Only feature: just set start and stop times that match your tariff – typically overnight – and charging will only take place during that period.
Customers can also set charging to stop when the battery reaches a specific level – 80 percent for example. This is especially useful when using public chargers because you can add only the range you need to reach your destination.
Preconditioning is another easy-to-use technology that enhances the driving experience. While the vehicle is plugged in it automatically heats or cools the battery to its ideal temperature and does the same for the interior, ready for the start of your journey. Using power from the mains instead of from the battery is more energy efficient and maximises range. Together with the timed charging functions, preconditioning can be set either using the vehicle touchscreen or the Jaguar Remote App – this has now been updated, making it even simpler to use.
Infotainment and connectivity
Inside I-PACE’s spacious interior there’s all the technology you need to make every journey more enjoyable. Every model in the range has the fast, intuitive Pivi Pro infotainment system, offering seamless connectively through wireless Apple CarPlay®, Wireless Android Auto™ and what3words navigation. Pivi Pro – together with other systems throughout the vehicle – is always up to date thanks to software-over-the-air updates.
The Jaguar I-PACE tore up the rule book to become the first and best electric vehicle of its kind. The brand’s first EV, it has won 92 global awards to date, including AutoTrader South African Car of the year (2020), Swiss Car of the Year (2018), German Car of the Year (2018), UK Car of the Year (2019), European Car of the Year (2019) and the unprecedented treble at the 2019 World Car of the Year Awards, winning World Car Design of the Year, World Green Car and World Car of the Year. I-PACE was also awarded the maximum five-star safety rating by Euro NCAP in 2018.
Insights into the advantages of ownership can be found in Jaguar’s Electrification Hub. Here you can find out everything you need to know about I-PACE, whether it’s maximising range and making the most of each charge, or simply how to charge at home or using the ever-growing network of public chargers.
A range calculation tool makes it easy to see how factors such as vehicle speed, ambient temperature and climate control settings can influence the real-world range you could expect to achieve.
