Jaguar launched all-electric SUV I-Pace in India

Jaguar Land Rover India on March 23 announced the launch of its all-electric I-Pace in the country with a starting price of Rs 105.9 Lakh (ex-showroom).

I-Pace is powered by a 90 kWh battery that delivers 294 kW power and 696 Nm torque, allowing the I-PACE to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds, said a press release.

Since its launch, the Jaguar I-Pace has won over 80 global awards, including the prestigious World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year and World Green Car in 2019, making it a true electric vehicle icon within a short span of time, it said further.

Mr Rohit Suri, President & Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd, said: “Jaguar I-Pace is the first all-electric SUV that we’ve launched in India and it marks the beginning of our electrification journey. With our electrified products we look forward to playing a significant role in India’s electrification drive into the future.”

Jaguar has ensured that every step of the customer journey delivers peace of mind and makes owning an electric car as easy as possible. Twenty-two retail outlets across 19 cities are now EV-ready with over 35 EV chargers installed and more underway. Further, to charge the Jaguar I-Pace, customers may either use a Home Charging Cable that is provided as standard with the vehicle or use a 7.4 kW AC wall-mounted charger that is also provided as standard.

From the pronounced front wheel arches to the rear diffuser, every supercar inspired styling element allows I-Pace to slice cleanly through the air for maximum range and stability, said the release further. I-Pace reimagines the classic Jaguar balance of sports car focus and luxury craftsmanship for the digital age.

The new Pivi Pro infotainment system is a highlight of the SUV’s spacious, luxurious interior. Electric architecture defines the five-seater cabin’s character and handcrafted touches reaffirm the cabin’s luxury atmosphere.

I-Pace features the latest and more driver-focused technology and is the first Jaguar in India to offer Pivi Pro Infotainment System. The 31.24 cm (12.3) HD instrument cluster features completely revised graphics to give an even clearer indication of battery state of charge.

Inside the cabin, the ClearSight Rear View Mirror improves vision and convenience by ensuring the driver always has an unobstructed view of the road behind even with three people in the rear seat.

I-Pace is equipped with Software over the Air (SOTA) functionality. This means Systems including infotainment, battery management and charging can be updated remotely.

All occupants benefit from the enhanced climate control system, which delivers smart, energy-efficient heating or cooling of up to four zones independently.

The SUV’s 294 kW of peak power takes one from 0-100 km/h in only 4.8 seconds. The 90 kWh-battery is positioned within the floor, between the axles, giving a low centre of gravity and near perfect weight distribution.

I-Pace is underpinned by an advanced electric vehicle architecture created specifically for this car that delivers excellent driving dynamics while minimising weight. The double wishbone suspension at the front and integral link suspension at the rear have been tuned to give the I-Pace the perfect balance of dynamic handling and refinement, added the release.
