I-PACE FIRST DRIVE

I-PACE FIRST DRIVE “THE I-PACE OFFERS THE PERFORMANCE OF A SPORTS CAR, BUT THE ECO-FRIENDLINESS OF AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE” 16 THE JAGUAR

The round trip through the Algarve in southern Portugal took our writer and photographer for a 140-mile drive along some of Europe’s best driving roads. On a full charge, the I-PACE 90-kWh battery offers up to 240 miles of range 2 – more than enough to discover this thriving region twice over Atlantic Ocean Sagres Lagos 1: European model shown: 2019 Jaguar I-PACE First Edition in Photon Red with option equipment. Photon Red is exclusive to First Edition for the first model year only. All features described as exclusive to I-PACE First Edition may become available as options in future model years. Contact your local Jaguar Land Rover retailer for more information. 2: Figures shown are Manufacturer’s driving range estimates. Actual mileage may vary.

Autódromo PORTUGAL Portimão We’re driving the new all-electric Jaguar I-PACE First Edition 1 , resplendent in Photon Red paintwork, through the Portuguese Algarve. It’s fair to say this performance SUV – revealed at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show – stands out for all the right reasons. As an I-PACE First Edition, this particular model is only available for purchase for the first year of production and comes with a variety of special First Edition features like Windsor Leather Seats, First Edition Treadplates, 20" wheels with technical grey finish and Premium LED Headlights. Street-level crowd reaction is certainly strong and excitable. A group of local teenage boys sidles up and strikes up a conversation; a middle-aged couple snap away like paparazzi, before explaining the reason: Their daughter has already ordered an I-PACE so they’re excited to take photos as evidence that they’ve seen it on the road before her. Everywhere we go on our journey – from bustling coastal resorts to remote mountain villages – onlookers react the same way: They all recognize the famous Jaguar badge but haven’t seen this type of Jaguar before. This Jaguar, the I-PACE, offers the performance of a sports car – 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds 3 and a 124 mph top speed 3 – but with the eco-friendliness of an electric vehicle – zero CO₂ tailpipe emissions in use. Its 90 kWh battery can provide up to 240 miles of range on a full charge2, allowing exploration of the beautiful Portuguese countryside with a clean conscience and without a hint of range anxiety.
