The Jaguar I-PACE was introduced in India today which is the first Battery Electric Vehicle to be launched in India by Jaguar Land Rover. The Jaguar I-PACE is powered by a 90 kWh battery that delivers 294 kW power and 696 Nm torque and accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 4.8 s.
According to the Jaguar Land Rover, 22 retail outlets across 19 cities are now EV ready with over 35 EV chargers installed and more underway. These chargers are a combination of 7.4 kW AC chargers and 25 kW DC (fast) chargers.
Further, to charge the Jaguar I-PACE, customers may either use a Home Charging Cable that is provided as standard with the vehicle or use a 7.4 kW AC wall mounted charger that is also provided as standard. The installation of this charger at the customer’s house will be done by Tata Power Ltd, and will be coordinated via Jaguar Retailers. Customers may also access Tata Power’s fast expanding EZ Charge network of around 200 I-PACE compatible charging points on a use and pay basis.
I-PACE features Pivi Pro Infotainment System. The 12.3 inch HD instrument cluster features completely revised graphics to give an even clearer indication of battery state of charge.
The I-PACE is available with wireless device charging pad beneath the ‘floating’ centre console. Wireless charging also includes signal boosting, ensuring the phone’s signal remains strong for longer. A Smartphone Pack with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is available, as is Bluetooth technology which can pair two phones simultaneously.
Inside the cabin, the ClearSight Rear View Mirror improves vision and convenience by ensuring the driver always has an unobstructed view of the road behind even with three people in the rear seat. It uses a wide-angle, rear-facing camera linked to a high-resolution screen within the frameless glass mirror. A small toggle switch on the mirror allows the driver to switch seamlessly between the view from the standard mirror and the camera feed.
The I-PACE is equipped with Software over the Air (SOTA) functionality. This means Systems including infotainment, battery management and charging can be updated remotely. Using the vehicle’s built-in data connection, the latest software can be downloaded automatically.
The I-PACE has enhanced climate control system, which delivers smart, energy-efficient heating or cooling of up to four zones independently. When charging, customers can use the I-PACE’s pre-conditioning system (which optimises battery temperature) to also purge the cabin of allergens and ultrafine particles before beginning a journey.
The I-PACE’s linear acceleration is instantaneous with no lag and no gear shift interruptions. Its 294 kW of peak power takes you from 0-100 km/h in only 4.8 s. The 90 kWh battery is positioned within the floor, between the axles, giving a low centre of gravity and near perfect weight distribution.
The I-PACE is underpinned by an advanced electric vehicle architecture created specifically for this car that delivers excellent driving dynamics while minimising weight. The double wishbone suspension at the front and integral link suspension at the rear have been tuned to give the I-PACE the perfect balance of dynamic handling and refinement.
Jaguar I-PACE is priced from Rs. 105.9 Lakh (ex-showroom India), inclusive of 5 years service package, 5 years road-side assistance package, 7.4 kW AC wall mounted charger and 8 years or 160 000 km battery warranty.
