The Jaguar I-Pace – Owning an EV Just Got Exciting

2nd May 2019

Jaguar just stepped up to the plate with the all-new fully electric I-Pace. Designed to give all other electric vehicles a run for their money with a stunning design, a range of 240 miles, and responsive road manners. The I-Pace can go zero to sixty in 4.5 seconds meaning you won’t be sacrificing power and the fun of driving with an electric motor. The I-Pace actually has two fully electric motors: one that drives the front wheels, and one that drives the rear making the I-Pace an all-wheel-drive vehicle ready for any weather condition. The two electric motor setup provides 394 horsepower and 512 pounds-ft f torque. Powering these motors is a 90-kWh battery pack. Warren Henry Auto of Miami says that a full charge with a 240-volt charger takes just under 13 hours. While a DC fast charger can do an 80 percent charge between 40 minutes and an hour and a half.
