Probably en route to the Geneva Motor Show where it currently resides on display, the Jaguar I-Pace concept also had time to pose for some beauty shots on the Streets of the British capital.
Jaguar is looking to rival the Tesla Model X with an upcoming production model based on the I-Pace concept, which should actually come out of hiding before the end of the year. The previewing model has been showcased both at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2016 before switching the graphics to a catchy red hue in time for the European introduction at the Geneva Motor Show. Jaguar even had time for a catwalk photo shoot of the Euro concept out on the streets of London. The production model most likely coming to dealerships later in 2018 is the make’s first all-electric car, and fittingly comes with an interesting exterior design. It’s the same thing with the high-tech but minimalist interior, which is rather similar to what the new Range Rover Velar is proposing.
The I-Pace’s technical performance is also backing the bold appearance. The production version should pack 400 electric horsepower (almost 300 kilowatts) and an instant torque of 700 Newton-meters (516 pound-feet). This should suffice to get the all-electric crossover sprinting to 60 mph (96 kph) in an all-wheel drive happy four seconds. It also carries a 90-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which is said to lend a range of more than 310 miles (500 kilometers) in the New European Driving Cycle. Recharging can be hastened with the 50-kW DC charging that brings the pack to an 80 percent level in 90 minutes.
