Jaguar is responding by hosting an online broadcast on its social channels, revealing I-PACE to the public and entire world.
Specifications will be announced, and the Jaguar configurator will offer customers the option to configure their own I-PACE.
The I-PACE is Jaguar’s newest member of the PACE family and is the EV drivers have been waiting for, delivering sustainable sports car performance, all-wheel-drive agility and five-seat SUV practicality.
Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, said:
“Since revealing the I-PACE Concept in 2016, we have been counting down to this moment. The all-electric I-PACE is not only a pioneer within our business, it promises to revolutionise the industry. I cannot wait for the world to see everything we have achieved with this car.”
The I-PACE will be capable of rapid charging from zero to 80 per cent in 45 minutes* and has been rigorously tested across extremes of terrain and temperatures from -40°C to 40°C.
With over 2.4 million test kilometres and a further 11,000 hours of rig simulations completed by more than 200 production prototypes, Jaguar’s design and engineering teams have created a world-class all-electric SUV.
