LOS ANGELES — Just ahead of the 2016 LA Auto Show, Jaguar unveiled its all-electric I-Pace SUV concept, a preview of the production model set to go on sale in 2018.
Powering the electric motors at the front and rear axles is a 90-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, with a combined output of 400 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Jaguar is targeting 220 miles of range on a full charge, which could be achieved in just over two hours.
In terms of size, the I-Pace will be about 3.5 inches shorter in height and 2 inches shorter in length than the Jaguar F-Pace SUV. The flexibility of an electric powertrain allows for a wheelbase that is 4 inches longer, which should increase interior space. Cargo capacity behind the rear seats maxes out at 18.7 cubic feet, and there's a tiny 1-cubic-foot space under the "hood."
The cabin will feature the premium materials and sturdy craftsmanship that Jaguar is known for, as well as all of the latest technology found in other vehicles in the manufacturer's portfolio. Check back for more information on the I-Pace as we near the production date.
