Jaguar has revealed the production 2019 Jaguar I-PACE, its electric luxury SUV and attempt to take Tesla’s Model X head-on. The car will be the automaker’s first all-electric vehicle, promising an estimated 240 miles of range on a full charge of its 90 kWh lithium-ion battery, along with the driving dynamics you’d expect from a vehicle with the Jaguar badge.
That means a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds, Jaguar claims, courtesy of two electric motors for standard all-wheel drive. Each delivers 197 HP, one at the front axle and one at the rear: together, they’re good for 394 horsepower, and a very healthy 512 lb-ft. of torque. Top speed is 124 miles per hour.
From the outside, the carry-over from the I-PACE Concept is clear. That includes C-X75 Supercar Concept styling cues with a low, short hood with the automaker’s traditional grille and a built-in hood scoop for aerodynamic improvements. The rear is squared-off, meanwhile, with a curved rear window all adding to a lower coefficient of drag.
