Jaguar to soon reveal 'fast charging' SA-bound I-Pace

Jaguar I Pace Reveal Announced For March 1

Jaguar Land Rover's Dr Wolfgang Ziebart said: "This is an uncompromised electric vehicle designed from a clean sheet of paper: we've developed a new architecture and selected only the best technology available".

The I-PACE was earlier tested in temperatures as low as -40°C. The carmaker also claims to have scaled the Arctic for the cold weather testing of the I-Pace at the Arjeplog facility where the temperatures were as low as -40 degrees. This ensures better range, performance, and comfort than if the battery had just been sitting out in the cold for hours.

One challenge with EVs in cold weather is the temperature of the battery. Despite that, there are some big advantages of going EV when there's snow and ice underfoot, with the instantaneous torque often making for a more sure-footed vehicle than a gasoline or diesel equivalent. In the lead up, the I-Pace has been undergoing extreme winter testing to make sure it lives up to Jaguar's expectations. What we do know now, however, is how long that battery will take to charge.

It's an impressively short time.

Order books for the highly anticipated electric Jaguar I-Pace are set to open on 1 March following a global premiere at the Geneva Motor Show.

While the five seater won't compete directly with a Tesla Model X in the seven seat configuration, the cabin should be no less comfortable.

The release says: "While plugged into power, customers will be able to prepare the car's battery and cabin temperature ahead of a journey without tapping into the battery's range".

The I-Pace has been confirmed to go on sale in Australia late this year, with prices yet to be announced.

Further details around pricing and specifications for our market will likely come around the Geneva show, and in the lead-up to the I-Pace's local launch.
