Jaguar released its first battery-electric I-Pace mid-size SUV in December 2018 with four variants – S, SE, HSE and First Edition.
 
The I-Pace was motivated by two permanent magnet synchronous electric motors mounted on opposing axles, providing variable all-wheel-drive via a single-speed automatic transmission.
 
System outputs were 294kW of power and 696Nm of torque, enabling a sprint from standstill to 100km/h in 4.8 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 200km/h.
 
A 90kWh lithium-ion battery pack provided a claimed 470 kilometres of range under the WLTP standard, while power consumption was 21.2kWh per 100km.
 
Charging the battery pack from empty to 80 per cent took about 40 minutes when a 100kW DC fast charger was plugged in, while a 7kW AC charger needed more than 10 hours to reach the same level.
 
The underfloor placement of the electric motors and battery pack allowed for extra interior storage, including a 10.5L central bin and 656L of rear cargo capacity – or 1453L when the 60/40 split-fold bench seat was stowed.
 
The I-Pace’s coil-sprung suspension consisted of double-wishbone front and multi-link rear axles, although air springs and adaptive dampers were among the individual options on offer.
