Charging confirmed for new all-electric I-Pace

Charging confirmed for new all-electric I-Pace

Jaguar is finally going to reveal the production version of the I-Pace concept at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Set to debut at the Geneva motor show, Jaguar has made a decision to demonstrate the I-Pace's ability to deal with the arctic conditions of nations like Sweden, with temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius in the region. "You can see the true value of the I-Pace's dramatic silhouette and powerful proportions when you see it on the road, against other cars".

The I-Pace is a fully electric crossover that's not to be confused with the soon-to-be-launched and conventionally-powered E-Pace in any way, the battery-powered I-Pace also boasting a sportier design and more upmarket positioning.

Pre-conditioning the auto ensures maximum range, performance and comfort whether temperatures are freezing cold or extremely hot, says Jaguar. To make sure that latter claim is correct, Jaguar turned to its testing facility in Arjeplog, Sweden, to complete the extreme winter testing portion of its development.

With supercar looks, sports auto performance and SUV space all in one electric package, Jaguar promises to rip up the rule book when it comes to what drivers expect from an electric vehicle. That might be because in addition to running barely camouflaged production models around for months, the company has even announced a one-make race series with the vehicle before we've seen the revealed production model.

Though final specs remain unconfirmed, the I-Pace is expected to offer maximum outputs in the region of 295kW and 700Nm, with one electric motor mounted on each axle for all-wheel-drive capability.

For rapid charging, using a typical public 50 KW DC charging network, a full charge will take just over two hours - enough to deliver more than 500km range (measured on the European NEDC test cycle). Stay tuned for the March 1 reveal.

Users will be able to pre-set the cabin temperature before getting in using a remote smartphone app, or via the on-board InControl touch-screen system using the temperate scheduling function.

Pricing information for the I-Pace will be announced on the March 1 reveal. In the meantime check out the snow testing fun in the video below.
