Jaguar I-Pace teased drifting on ice
The all-electric Jaguar I-Pace will be revealed to the world on 1 March, but Jaguar has teased it drifting on ice.
THE ALL-ELECTRIC JAGUAR I-PACE will charge from empty to full in 45 minutes (when using a DC 100kW charger). It will be revealed to the world on 1 March but Jaguar has given a sneak peek with a potential customer treated to some ice driving in Sweden.
Jaguar is keen to show off the potential of its all-electric I-Pace and after a potential customer, Tony Weterlund, asked about the vehicle’s ability to handle life in Arctic conditions, the brand invited him to try it out on the ice at Jaguar Land Rover’s cold weather test facility in Arjeplog, Sweden, at temperatures as low as -40°C. You can watch the video above.
Ian Hoban, Jaguar Vehicle Line Director, said, “Not only will the I-PACE charge quickly enough for our customers to carry out their everyday lives, it will offer powerful and precise performance in a variety of conditions and climactic extremes. Allied with the versatile credentials of our celebrated PACE family, this will be an electric performance SUV like no other.”
The I-Pace will offer the versatility of in-car or app-based set-up. “Setting up preferred charging times and pre-conditioning schedules can be done from either the on-board InControl system, or the Remote smartphone APP, and is as easy as setting an alarm,” Jaguar said.
