All-electric five-seater will make European debut




Jaguar I Pace Concept Side

As for the design, Jaguar’s chief designer Ian Callum said in a release, “Because we’re still in the phase when every Jaguar must be instantly identifiable as a Jaguar, we kept the family face largely unchanged for the electric vehicle, so that more people get to know and understand the brand.” But most of the I-Pace’s design aesthetic has been crafted to better slice through the air and increase its range — it only has a 0.29 drag coefficient.
This concept won’t be just a concept for long, however, as we’ve already seen Jaguar testing I-Pace mules with nearly identical body pieces. The I-Pace will definitely compete with other all-electric luxury vehicles in price, as the I-Pace is expected to cost nearly $90,000.
“The I-Pace Concept is a radical departure for electric vehicles,” said Callum. “It represents the next generation of battery electric vehicle design. It’s a dramatic, future-facing design — the product of authentic Jaguar DNA matched with beautiful, premium details and British craftsmanship.”
You can check out the I-Pace on the Jaguar stage at the Geneva Motor Show and customers can now register with Jaguar to be one of the first I-Pace owners through the company’s website.
