Jaguar is a brand name most people recognize. However, they are not necessarily associated with electric vehicles. They’re trying to change that now, though. Jaguar recently released an electric SUV in LA. Let’s take a look at what this vehicle brings to the table.
Jaguar Land Rover, one of the world’s leading luxury carmakers, has unveiled its first all-electric SUV at an event in Los Angeles. The vehicle is called the I-Pace and is a five-seater that promises to revolutionize electric vehicles with its advanced technology and performance capabilities. The I-Pace was developed over three years by Jaguar’s design team and engineers from around the world. It features two electric motors – one on each axle – which provide 400 horsepower combined power output along with 516 lb.-ft (700 Nm) of torque for instantaneous acceleration off the line or when passing other cars on highways. This gives it a 0 to 60 mph time of 4 seconds flat – making this one of the fastest SUVs available today. In addition to being fast, the I-Pace will also offer drivers more range than comparable gas-powered models due to its 90 kWh battery pack that provides up to 234 miles (377 km) between charges according to EPA figures released today during an unveiling ceremony in LA.
For those who need even greater range, Jaguar offers an optional extra charge allowing owners access to an additional 30 miles (48km). Furthermore, if plugged into a 100kW DC charger then 80% charging can be achieved within 40 minutes meaning less time spent waiting for your EV charge while out driving about town or taking longer trips further away from home. As well as class-leading speed & range, the IPACE also boasts sophisticated interior designs including JLR’s latest infotainment system plus luxurious leather interiors designed specifically around customers’ needs – providing comfort & convenience, not just practicality.
Power Output: By comparison, Tesla Model X has a similar power output but only manages around 300 miles per charge while Hyundai Kona EV gets 258 miles per charge at most with 201 hp under its belt. Therefore in terms of total distance covered before requiring another recharge cycle or electricity top up, the Jaguar stands as one of the top contenders within the current crop of EV options.
Price: In terms of price, consumers should note that despite having a longer range than some rivals the sticker price for the basic trim level sits slightly higher than those competitors – starting from $69,000 USD. Competing models such as Tesla Model X are priced lower at $68,000 USD & Hyundai Kona starts even lower still at just over $41,000 USD.
Interior Comfort & Quality: The Jaguar’s larger size allows it to offer generous amounts of headroom, leg room, and cargo capacity. Premium materials found throughout the interior make sure passengers feel comfortable during their journey whether it be inside the city or on long-distance trips. Teslas uses glass panel roofing giving 360-degree view outside world, giving the car a bit of a first-class feel. Meanwhile, Hyundai’s sporty style dashboard doesn’t quite match the elegance of Jaguar.
Jaguar has produced a wonderful vehicle that is environmentally friendly and easy to enjoy. With this said, there are other electric cars with a similar feel on the market right now, and your final decision will likely come down to price and personal opinion. This is why it’s important to take a test-drive before committing to a purchase.
