The 2019 Jaguar I-PACE Just Changed Electric Cars Forever
With more and more manufacturers entering the hybrid and electric game, it was only a matter of time before a luxury brand joined and changed the score completely.
It happened with the recent release of the 2019 Jaguar I-PACE for sale in Fort Pierce, Florida. See how this electric crossover, the first of its kind from Jaguar, is set to change how this class of vehicles is viewed.
The Jaguar I-PACE: A Jolt of Electricity
Electric cars are often chided for a lack of power. After all, they’re designed to be economical, not fast. But did you really think Jaguar would produce a vehicle — even an electric one — that wasn’t capable of tearing up the road?
The I-PACE packs 394 horsepower and 512 lb.-ft. of torque under the hood, numbers that are unheard of for an all-electric motor. Hitting 0 to 60 in 4.5 seconds and with all-wheel drive, the I-PACE is an electric family-friendly crossover that performs like a gas-guzzling muscle car.
It doesn’t just drive fast either. A zero to 80% charge can be accomplished in just 85 minutes, and a full charge carries a range of 240 driving miles.
Outside, the I-PACE looks every bit like a Jaguar. But it’s designed with just as much substance as style. A hood scoop pulls in air and directs it back out again over the top of an aerodynamically-designed roofline to minimize drag. Meanwhile, a panoramic glass roof, LED headlights and 22-inch wheels help maintain the brand’s edge.
Inside, riders are treated to sport seats with heating and cooling, a 15-speaker Meridian audio system, and a 4G Wi-Fi network. Drivers get all their navigation and driving metrics, including 3D mapping, from a high-definition 12.3-inch screen. And even when you aren’t near your I-PACE, you can still check things like your driving range and charging status right from your smartphone.
And remembering that it is in fact a crossover, the I-PACE comes loaded with over 25 cubic feet of rear cargo room.
The available safety features found in the I-PACE keep pace with the rest of its technology. For example, the Adaptive Cruise Control system recognizes speed limit signs as you pass them and automatically adjusts the car’s speed accordingly. And the Driver Condition Monitor picks up on steering and pedal maneuvers to detect when a driver may be drowsy or distracted and issues a warning to take a break.
The I-PACE is such a groundbreaking vehicle that it has even been recruited to join the self-driving revolution.
