THIS IS A production preview of the all-electric Jaguar I-Pace concept, which was unveiled to the crowds at this year’s LA Auto Show, and it is set to rival to the likes of the Audi Q6 e-tron quattro and Tesla Model X.

It is described as a five-seat sports car and a performance SUV in one.

Ian Callum, Director of Design, said:

The I-PACE Concept represents the next generation of electric vehicle design. It’s a dramatic, future-facing cab-forward design with a beautiful interior – the product of authentic Jaguar DNA, electric technology and contemporary craftsmanship.

The I-Pace has twin electric motors, one on the front and rear axle, with a combined output of 400hp and a whooping 700Nm of torque – the same torque rating as the F-Type SVR.

The electric motors and 90kWh lithium-ion battery pack were designed in-house by Jaguar Land Rover and a full charge will take just over 2 hours using a 50kW DC charging network. A full charge will give more than a 500km range (measured on the European NEDC test cycle).

Jaguar describes the car as a long distance sprinter, which can accelerate to 100km/h in “around four seconds”.

The car also features a panoramic glass roof, two touch screens, a ‘Sports Command’ driving position to give it a more sports car-like feel and slimline seats made from Windsor leather and Moonstone Alcantara.

Jaguar confirms that the I-Pace will be on the road in 2018 and customers can register now at to be one of the first I-Pace owners.
