The electric Jaguar I-Pace has dumped its slick silver look from the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show and put on a sharp red paintjob for its European debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March. The most recent I-Pace displayed in these images looks nearly similar to the first principle, shown above. Its car-like roofline and aggressive, scowling headlights appear to have been inspired by the larger F-Pace while its eye-catching double-sill style and huge alloy wheels provide it a similarly sporty appearance to its bigger bro.
2018 Jaguar I-Pace Design
Its futuristic body boasts a far more swoopy shape than the similarly-sized F-Pace, while short front and rear overhangs and huge 23-inch alloy wheels provide it a lot more aggressive stance. At the back, the broad brake lights look much like the F-Pace but its sharper style sets it apart from the rest of the current Jaguar catalogue. A slippery aerodynamic body should assist the 2018 Jaguar I-Pace eke out every last joule of energy from its onboard battery pack. Inside the completed car, we expect to discover a similar infotainment system to both the I-Pace principle, shown above, and the recently released Range Rover Velar coupe. Two large screens should be installed on the centre console to manage heating and air-con functions while a 3rd unit, fitted behind the steering wheel, is expected to replace conventional analogue instruments.
2018 Jaguar I-Pace Engine
The 2018 Jaguar I-Pace is set to become the very first fully-electric Jaguar when it goes on sale in 2018. It’s driven by 2 of electrical motors– one between the front wheels, one at the back. The pair integrate to produce 395hp and a hefty 516lb ft of torque– enough to accelerate the I-Pace from 0-62mph in around four seconds. The battery is said to supply a variety of over 310 miles and can be charged at a fast charge point in little bit more than 2 hours. The battery pack is saved under the floor and in between the front and rear wheels to use a low centre of gravity and even weight circulation. The car’s chassis doesn’t share any common parts with the current Jaguar variety– the I-Pace was designed as a totally electric vehicle from the outset– however it could generate a household of electric cars in the future.
