    Jaguar To Reveal I-Pace EV On March 1st

      Also, Jaguar drops an interesting tidbit about charging


    Jaguar has been busy teasing their first electric vehicle, the I-Pace since it made its debut at the 2016 LA Auto Show. Now we have a date when Jaguar will reveal the production model. 

    On March 1st, Jaguar will do a livestream debuting the production I-Pace - only a few days before the start of the Geneva Motor Show. Jaguar will also open up the order books for the EV.

    But there is also an interesting tidbit that the British automaker dropped. The I-Pace is able to get an 80 percent charge of the battery within 45 minutes when plugged into 100-kW DC fast-charging station.

    JAGUAR I-PACE CONCEPT UNDERGOES COLD WEATHER TESTING IN ARJEPLOG, SWEDEN

    The all-electric Jaguar I-PACE will support rapid charging and offer exceptional performance when it goes on sale later this year.

    • All-wheel drive performance tested in Artic conditions at -40°F
    • Jaguar confirms the I-PACE will support DC Fast Charging from zero to 80 percent in approximately 45 minutes (1)
    • Jaguar I-PACE to be revealed via live broadcast on March 1, 2018 at 1:00PM ET ahead of Motor Show Debut at Geneva on March 6

    (MAHWAH, N.J) – January 30, 2018 – The all-electric Jaguar I-PACE will support rapid charging and offer exceptional performance when it goes on sale later this year.  Capable of a DC fast charge from zero to 80 percent in approximately 45 minutes1 with a 100kW charger and with sports car performance and SUV practicality, the I-PACE will be well equipped for everyday use – whether on the school run, daily commute or even coping with sub-zero temperatures.

    The Jaguar I-PACE has been rigorously tested across extremes of terrain and temperature at the Jaguar Land Rover cold weather test facility in Arjeplog, Sweden, at temperatures as low as -40°F.

    Tony Westerlund, a potential customer from Sweden, had some interesting questions on living with I-PACE in Arctic conditions, particularly regarding stability and traction on the ice and snow. To answer his questions, Jaguar engineers invited him to Arjeplog to drive the car for the first time and see how it’s been tested to ensure performance in extreme conditions: https://youtu.be/VOnPjpFa3DU.

    “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. Allied with the versatile credentials of our celebrated PACE family, this will be an electric performance SUV like no other,” said Ian Hoban, Jaguar Vehicle Line Director.

    While plugged into power, customers will be able to prepare the car’s battery and cabin temperature ahead of a journey without tapping into the battery’s range. Pre-conditioning the car ensures maximum range, performance and comfort whether temperatures are freezing cold or extremely hot.  Setting up preferred charging times and pre-conditioning schedules can be done from either the on-board Jaguar InControl® system2, or the Jaguar InControl® Remote™ smartphone app.

    The Jaguar I-PACE will be revealed in a live global broadcast on March 1, 2018 at 1:00PM ET/19:00 CET and will go on to make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6, 2018.

    So they will hit their 300+ mile range battery pack. Interesting, saw on the news that LG has stated they now have production ready battery packs up to 120kWh. This would give the BOLT considerable range considering the current 60kWh battery pack is 238 miles, so would that mean 476 miles then if the BOLT offered the 120kWh battery pack?

    EV Power is coming soon! :metal: I like this I-Pace and where we are going with EV Auto's! :D

    They should wait exactly one month to intro this.

    Nah that was already taken by Mazda and their SkyActive-X engine launch. :P

    Very cool launch, I enjoyed watching it!

    Loved the test challenge between Tesla X P100D and the i-Pace. Tesla was beat over and over. Clearly they are being used as the measuring stick and are going to get beat by everyone.

    Ooooo! Yet another affordable EV!

    True, not an auto for everyone. But then one has to wonder about Aston Martin.

    https://www.autoblog.com/2018/03/06/aston-martin-lagonda-vision-concept-ev-geneva/#slide-7265092

    The price of their first EV Car is going to be what? The story / interview at Autoblog with Aston Martin has them bringing back the Million dollar V12 powered  Lagonda as their ultimate Zero-emissions luxury brand.

    Now convinced that color makes a big difference on the i-Pace look. Like the short overhangs much better than ones that have huge overhangs like the Rimac C-Two EV.

    Front & rear fascias are fine, if a little busy.
    It's the 3/4 and profile views that show it up as ungainly. Wheels don't help- it could use 2" smaller dia rims to get the proportions a little more palatable.

    I've been wondering for a few years now how the growing SUV and shrinking car segments would ultimately come together in a stylistic hybrid... but if this is it, no thanks.

      Due to knowledge gained at the I-Pace eTrophy racing series, Jaguar is releasing an update, available at dealerships, for its I-Pace EV CUV.  The update allows the vehicle to travel up to an additional 12 miles on a full charge over the previous range estimate of 292 miles WLTP. 
      The update improves thermal management of the powertrain, alters the torque split front to rear, and improved regenerative braking. The EV system has also been updated to more accurately reflect driving range based on driver habits. The battery will allow the battery to run to a lower state of charge before requiring a recharge without effecting drivablity, durability, or performance. 
      The update is complimentary and can be done at Jaguar dealerships.  The update also includes a new Software-Over-The-Air functionality which will allow the vehicle to receive future updates without visiting a dealership. 
      Jaguar is not changing the estimated 292 range on the WLTP rating though, citing costs required to go through certification again.

      Jaguar is updating the F-Type for 2021 with a sleeker look and updated engine choices.  The headlamps have been slimmed down and the bumper reworked wit model specific graphics. Around the tail end, the tail lamps are slimmer and feature a new "Chicane" graphic that is borrowed from the Jaguar I-Pace.  Those who select the R model will get a new wheels design, 20-inch 10-spoke wheels with Pirelli P Zero tires, 10 millimeters wider than before. All models can be selected in one of 16 different paint colors with each one offered in either gloss or satin.
      Inside there is a new reconfigurable 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. The 10-inch Touch Pro infotainment system supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The system is able to receive over the air updates. The base F-type and R-Dynamic model will get sport seats while Performance bucket seats are standard on the R and First Edition models. 
      Under the bonnet is a choice of three engines depending on model. At base, there is a 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder capable of 296 horsepower with a claimed 0-60 time as low as 5.4 seconds. Next up is a supercharged V6 rated at 380 horsepower.  Sitting at the top is a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 which is uprated slightly from prior years to 575 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Along with torque vectoring all-wheel drive, the top motor can get this cat from 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds.  Each engine comes with active exhaust system for more exhilarating sound when you want it. 
      The ride and handling has been updated with an updated suspension and electric assist power steering. Jaguar's Adaptive Dynamic system with continuously variable dampers have been tuned for more comfort at low speed and greater stability at high speed. 
      For just the 2021 model year, there will be an F-type First Edition model.  It will be based on the high-performance R-Dynamic trim and feature special 20-inch wheels, and just three colors, Santorini black, Eiger gray, and Fuji white. They come with 12-way power-adjustable seats with Windsor leather while the instrument cluster is wrapped in ebony suedecloth. 
      Pricing has not yet been announced, but don't expect it to cost less than the current $63,000 the car goes for today. It will likely go on sale mid-way through next year.
