Jaguar, the word itself suggests something premium. Recently Jaguar unveiled a premium, all-electric ‘I-PACE’ concept car at Los Angeles motor show. I‑PACE Concept is designed and engineered to take advantage of the new opportunities electric cars create. Everything has been designed for pure excitement, from the proportions of its innovative aluminum architecture to its dynamic handling and everyday practicality.
I‑PACE Concept has been conceived for pure driver enjoyment, demonstrated as much by its thrilling acceleration as by its intuitive technology. Inside, I‑PACE Concept is as spacious as it is sporty. Without an internal combustion engine to accommodate, thus the interior is exceptionally spacious with five full seats and luxurious rear passenger legroom. Everyone experiences Jaguar’s unmistakable flair for design and impeccable craftsmanship.
I‑PACE Concept’s dramatic, distinctive look, with aerodynamic bonnet scoop, with flush door handles and bold air ducts, maximizes the electric vehicle’s range and helps it slice efficiently through the air.
Stunning features of I-PACE:

BATTERY: I‑PACE Concept’s range is enabled through its high tech Lithium Ion battery which has a capacity of 90kWh.
POWER: By using 700Nm of instant torque, the I‑PACE Concept’s two electric motors together produce 400PS of power.
