2018 Jaguar I-Pace Electric Crossover Spied Near Nurburgring
Jaguar, one of the many luxury vehicle brands, is continuing the development and construction of its I-Pace. This car is known as Jaguar's first all-electric car model set to arrive in 2018. And today, a series of photos from a spy photographer shows that the svelte crossover is now being unloaded for testing at the Nürburgring, Germany.
According to Auto Blog, the Jaguar I-Pace looks almost identical to the concept prototype spied earlier this year. Its specs consist of two electric motors with an all-wheel-drive capability and a 90-kilowatt-hour battery pack that’s assumed to be good for 220 miles of range. Aside from that, it is also expected to debut next fall, probably at a special event at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Despite covering the car with a green camouflage, the curve of Jaguar's I-Pace, as well as its creases, are very evident. It's bordered in front by a prominent grille that good for its looks, angled headlights, and short overhangs. Certainly, Jaguar wants everyone to know that it's working on an electric car, as it promotes the hashtags #jaguarelectrifies and #ipace on the hood.
The automaker hasn't confirmed US specs yet, according to MotorTrend. However, based on the concept model car that the I-Pace generates, specs such as 400 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels from a lithium-ion battery pack are observe. Jaguar also claimed that the crossover can hit 60 miles per hour in just 4 seconds and has an anticipated range of 220 miles.
As of now, Jaguar is still investing in electric technology and looking to diesel and smaller displacement four-cylinder engines. This will be part of its future powertrain strategy that the company is preparing for. In fact, on Monday, the car maker confirmed plans for a 296-hp turbo four-cylinder which will be seen in the 2018 XE, XF, and F-Pace. It makes sense because according to rumors, I-Pace isn’t the only SUV Jaguar has cooking.
