After introducing the first high-end and luxury electric SUV to the automotive market, Jaguar remained quite alone among the manufacturers of this category of vehicles, to offer EVs. After two years of good and loyal service, the British I-Pace has been redesigned to a minimum in a low-cost version which is in fact low-cost in the name.
Jaguar I-Pace: few noticeable changes
In appearance, hardly anything has changed on this electric vehicle. With the exception of a few rather subtle improvements, proposed in order to give pride of place to the technological revolution brought by Jaguar.
Thus, a higher ground clearance, a tailgate fleeing the rear window or even thinner and protruding lights, are the meager aesthetic improvements lavished by Jaguar. However on the high-tech level, it is a contest of rudeness that serves the British competition.
In particular already with regard to the onboard charger of 11W which accompanies the car. This allows a total recharge in 8 hours flat. Unheard of for such a large battery. On board, there is also an on-board dual modem equipped with an eSim. History to improve the connectivity of the beast in 4G.
An induction charger is also available in the passenger compartment. In order to recharge the smartphones and tablets of the occupants of the I-Pace. It even achieves the feat of being equipped with a signal amplifier, which can therefore theoretically lead to rapid recharging.
Spotify is on board. As are Android Auto and Aplle CarPlay. As well as a simultaneous connection to two smartphones in Bluetooth thanks to the onboard Bluetooth 4.2 chip.
The recital ends with a 360 ° 3D camera. It allows a virtual 360 ° view of the vehicle on the central screen.
Jaguar I-Pace: less powerful engine, improved range
We keep the same engines as on the Jaguar I-Pace launched in 2018. However, a low-cost version produced in limited edition is appearing. It is notably equipped with an electric motor (obviously) of 320 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque. That is 80 horses and 200 Nm less compared to the base model.
Thanks to a 90 kWh battery, 470 km are announced according to the WLTP cycle on the low-cost I-Pace. The price of which starts at 70,500 euros. Or 10,000 euros less than the premium version.
