It is Jaguar’s first battery electric vehicle, or ‘BEV’. The I-PACE Concept uses a completely new vehicle architecture with two electric motors for All-Wheel Drive and sports car acceleration. A battery pack mounted low in the vehicle means outstanding handling to match and a spacious, light-filled cabin that takes every advantage of the compact electric drive components. An obsessive attention to aerodynamic efficiency and an equally obsessive dedication to real world functionality mean production versions of the I-PACE Concept should have a range of over 200 miles. *All illustrations, photographs and specifications shown here are based on the Jaguar I-PACE concept vehicle.
