Some exciting news to come out of EV Sales is that the Jaguar I-Pace is once again available for purchase. This is a high end, classy electric car that has proven to be very popular amongst EV enthusiasts for many reasons.
Read on to find out more about this luscious electric car.
The Right Time to Adopt a Jaguar I-Pace
Why should you choose to buy an electric car instead of petrol or diesel? Well, there are so many reasons to do so. Far too many for me to list here, but I can give you some ideas.
Firstly, they are simply better for the environment. Ignore all the bad (and mostly false) press that you hear about EVs (electric vehicles). You won’t get any exhaust emissions from a Jaguar I-Pace or any other electric vehicle. Although there are some particle emissions from tyres, these are very minimal. In fact, with regenerative braking you will likely produce much less tyre pollution than petrol or diesel in that regard too.
Secondly, they are cheaper to keep and maintain. Even with the rising energy costs, an electric car will cost a fraction of the cost of filling the equivalent petrol or diesel vehicle. Going beyond fuel, the maintenance of an EV is inexpensive. There are far fewer moving parts in an EV, so it makes sense that there is less to go wrong.
A final point I want to raise here is that there are fewer restrictions with an EV. London is expanding its ultra low emissions zone (ULEZ) and many other cities are introducing them. An electric car, such as the Jaguar I-Pace, can travel through without the fear of being fined or otherwise penalised.
A View From the Outside
Jaguar has the honour of being the first premium legacy car manufacturer to release an electric car. And, to be absolutely honest, it still beats many other premium brands hands down several years later. The Jaguar I-Pace is just an engineering masterpiece.
For a start, the I-Pace just looks magnificent. It is a large SUV and is almost indistinguishable from the F-Pace that comes from the same manufacturer in the petrol and diesel range. The I-Pace is a solid and well built car that is really aesthetically pleasing. From the early days of its release it has been one of our favourite EVs.
It isn’t very often that we see the Jaguar I-Pace on the EV Sales forecourt. We are really happy that we can offer these high class vehicles a new home that they deserve.
A Pounce Inside the Jaguar I-Pace
Once you step into the Jaguar I-Pace and feel that comforting solid thunk of the door closing, you know you have stepped into the world of luxury. Jaguar, after all, is a legacy car manufacturer. They have done it for a very long time and they are very good at it.
The build inside the car is just as impressive as the outside. The cabin is spacious and supremely comfortable. You would be more than happy travelling over longer distances in these seats.
The infotainment screen still holds its own against many modern incarnations. Dare I say it, but the Jaguar I-Pace infotainment system is even better than a lot of modern ones. It shouldn’t be due to the speed of technological advancements, but it is.
A Perfect Performance
Driving the I-Pace is an absolute joy. The suspension is brilliant and makes the ride a really smooth one. As you would expect from a Jaguar, the performance stats of the car are simply incredible too.
Complete with a 90kWh battery, the Jaguar I-Pace has a real world range of 235 miles. However, you should be able to get quite a bit more than this with a normal driving style. There is a maximum speed of 124mph and you can get up to 60mph from standing in a mere 4.8 seconds. The torque is quite impressive and you can definitely feel the pull when you put your foot down on the accelerator.
Charging on the Jaguar I-Pace is pretty good as well. This was one of the first cars to employ CCS charging capabilities and it can charge at speeds up to 150kW. To get from 15-80% charge you are looking at about 40 minutes on a rapid charger.
