Jaguar’s astounding I-Pace SUV points out the obvious: the future is electric
6 Dec 2018
IT’S been a long time coming, but Jaguar’s I-Pace is finally here. No, this is not just another premium mid-size SUV, this is the British brand’s first battery-electric vehicle (BEV). As such, its importance cannot be played down, because it very likely previews the future of motoring.
Significantly, Jaguar is the second of the premium brands, behind BMW, to bring a BEV to the Australian market, which is plagued by an underdeveloped electric-vehicle charging infrastructure. As a result, range anxiety abounds, but the I-Pace has prepared its response.
So, has Jaguar pulled the trigger too early by entering into a market that simply isn’t ready yet, or could its timing not be any better ahead of the launch of the Audi e-tron and Mercedes-Benz EQC? We put the I-Pace line-up through its paces (sorry, couldn’t help it) to find out.
