Jaguar I-PACE – the first electric car from the British manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover, created in cooperation with the Austrian company Magna Steyr. Crossover production is planned for 2018 at a rate of 15000 units with the possibility to increase the volume provided pre-orders and additional investments.
INTERIOR AND EXTERNAL DESIGN
Designers have awarded such a bright, aggressive and dynamic novelty that the American crossover Tesla Model X has clearly lost many buyers. The novelty, of course, will be economical full-color LED lighting (headlights, fog lights, side lights), superb curved body shapes with smooth lines and transitions, silhouette of a compartment with compact projections, an impressive wheelbase of almost 3 meters in size will be visible from afar. Exquisite exterior mirrors and touch door handles will please the hardest buyers.
In the presence of a huge slit on the bonnet, which directs the air flow from the engine compartment on the roof of the car, as the rear sports car, the angle of the roof, the rear window with a spoiler on the top is heavily lined, flat wire, an impressive diffuser … there are no even wiper blades. No, of course, nothing critical in this figure, the coefficient of aerodynamic pull of the body, but the British look phenomenal.
In addition, the electric crossover Jaguar received a completely glass roof. The interior of the new crossover Jaguar I-Pace demonstrates modern trends in equipping cars with modern equipment. There is a multifunction steering wheel with three knitting and touch panels, a 12-inch full-screen digital instrument panel, an advanced multimedia suite with a 12-inch touch screen, a four-way climate control with a 5.5-inch touch screen, full-color projection on the front glass, first row of seats with anatomical shape with electric adjustment, heating, ventilation and massage, free second line, heated with ventilated seats, panoramic roof and materials and finishing premium class. .. it’s Jaguar.
The car is equipped with two electric motors. Each of them produces 200 hp each with a capacity of 350 Nm (cumulative feedback – 400 forces and 700 Nm). The shaft is transmitted on both axes. An electric Jaguar accelerates to about 100 km / h in about 4 seconds.
The electric crossover is based on the original platform with front passenger displacement, a sandwich-floor of its own design company, which has a 90 kW lithium ion battery with nickel-cobalt-manganese cathodes consisting of 36 modules. The full charge of the battery is sufficient for a distance of approximately 480 km. With a special charging power of 50 kW, you can make a power reserve by 80% in 1.5 hours.
RELEASE DATE AND PRICE
The public premiere of the new Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV concept took place on November 14, 2016, as part of a special promo event at the Los Angeles Motor Show. But release of the serial version of the crossover will begin in Austria in the near future: sales in Europe will begin by the end of the year. The electric first-born will cost about 55,000 pounds, which is about 76,550 dollars.
What I can say is the typical product of this company in terms of design, but with an electric motor, not inherent to Jaguar. Worthy and worthy competitor of the Tesla X model. In addition, cars of this brand are considered as status, and considering the CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, or rather, its absence, it is also an environmentally friendly option, which is good, it did not significantly affect the speed.
