I-Pace takes Jaguar into electric age

Jaguar has unveiled its first electric car, which is due to be launched in 2018.

The all-electric SUV I-Pace was revealed at the LA Auto Show and is expected to go into production next year.

Jaguar claims the car will be able to travel 310 miles on a single charge, with the ability to accelerate from 0-62mph in four seconds.

Ian Callum, Jaguar’s director of design, said, ‘The I-Pace Concept represents the next generation of electric vehicle design. It’s a dramatic, future-facing, cab-forward design with a beautiful interior – the product of authentic Jaguar DNA, electric technology and contemporary craftsmanship.’

The average user would only need to charge the battery once a week – and when they do, it takes just over two hours to get it to 100 per cent power.
