In this issue we return to top level motorsport but not in a conventional way, and by doing so accelerate the development of our electric powertrains. In tandem, we introduce our Jaguar I-PACE Concept vehicle - a revolutionary new model available to reserve now for delivery in 2018.
I-PACE CONCEPT ENGINEERING The I-PACE Concept features two extremely efficient electric motors which together produce 400HP and 516 lb-ft of instantaneous torque, meaning 60 mph in approximately 4 seconds Driven by the same passion that powers Jaguar Racing’s entry to the FIA Formula E Championship, Jaguar engineers have designed a unique electric drivetrain for the new I-PACE Concept*. At its heart are two compact and efficient, synchronous, permanent magnet motors. They take their power from another piece of fresh Jaguar thinking, the lithium-ion battery pack which uses the very latest pouch cell technology. The liquid-cooled battery pack, rated at 90kWh, is mounted as low as possible to move the center of gravity (CoG) closer to the ground. A low CoG combined with Jaguar doublewishbone front and integral look rear suspension ensures the I-PACE Concept delivers an experience more than familiar to Jaguar drivers. *All illustrations, photographs and specifications shown here are based on the Jaguar I-PACE concept vehicle. Final U.S. specifications, design, equipment, and accessories have not been determined. Therefore, U.S. production vehicles will differ from the one shown. All pricing and figures for acceleration, power, speed, range and charging are Manufacturer’s estimates based on best information available at time of publication. Jaguar I-PACE production vehicles will be tested and certified prior to release, with official figures available prior to any customer order.” 22 THEJAGUAR
