Jaguar is now testing its first full electric vehicle on public roads. The company announced it is testing the upcoming I-PACE SUV along London’s Olympic Park, ahead of its slated reveal later this year. Jaguar has also further confirmed a few more details on the I-PACE.
Revealed in late 2016 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the I-PACE Concept is supposedly a thinly disguised version of the production I-PACE. Both the concept and production versions of the vehicle will be powered by two electric motors that are supplied power from a 90 kWh battery pack. The combination will yield about 310 miles of range and a zero to 60 mph time of around four seconds.
While the concept version is the one driving around London, the production version of the I-PACE will be revealed later this year. Jaguar says the production version will arrive in showrooms in the second half of 2018 and that the company already has 350 deposits for it.
Jaguar says the I-PACE will not sacrifice driving dynamics and performance due to its electric power. It promises the I-PACE will be a “true driver’s car.”
