Ice cool I-Pace leads Jaguar's electric charge

Jaguar I-Pace Home Auto Shows The Jaguar I Pace will charge up to 80 percent in 45 min By Marc Carter- January 3

Jaguar has yet to reveal exactly how far the I-Pace will be able to drive on a single charge.

"Pre-conditioning the auto ensures maximum range, performance and comfort whether temperatures are freezing cold or extremely hot". To make sure that latter claim is correct, Jaguar turned to its testing facility in Arjeplog, Sweden, to complete the extreme winter testing portion of its development.

The news came by way of yet another JLR teaser video, this one showing the by-now-familiar camouflaged I-Pace prototype in wintry conditions at a test site in Arjeplog, Sweden.

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".

The Jaguar i-Pace SUV will be revealed on 1 March 2018, get its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show and go on sale straight away, with first customer cars expected Q3 2018.

Unsurprisingly, the feedback on how the i-Pace copes with ice and properly low temperatures is positive, and if the electric SUV can cope with -40C it should be just fine most other places.

Full specifications haven't been revealed for the production model yet, but various prototypes and a concept give us a pretty good indication. The battery will power a pair of electric motors, one at each axle, which deliver a combined 400 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. It can accelerate to 60mph from standstill in around four seconds and will have a range of some 310 miles.

Users will be able to pre-set the cabin temperature before getting in using a remote smartphone app, or via the on-board InControl touch-screen system using the temperate scheduling function. The company finally announced a reveal date of March 1.

It says the low-slung five-door wagon will offer fast-charge functionality from zero to 80 per cent of battery capacity in less than 45 minutes using a 100kW DC charger.

The I-Pace is a fully electric crossover that's not to be confused with the soon-to-be-launched and conventionally-powered E-Pace in any way, the battery-powered I-Pace also boasting a sportier design and more upmarket positioning.
