Jaguar’s very first all-electric vehicle has been on proud display at Taggarts Jaguar Glasgow, as part of its preview tour across the UK.
The VIP preview gave special guests and loyal customers one of the earliest opportunities to view the Jaguar I-PACE prior to the new all-electric vehicle arriving in showrooms later this Summer. The event, held last Saturday, welcomed guests to get a first look at the innovative I-Pace as well as offering the opportunity to pre-order so they can be one of the first to drive the trailblazing new model.
With a range of up to 298 miles, capability to fully charge in less than 45 minutes, with sports car performance and SUV practicality, the I-PACE is a game changer, offering style, substance and sophistication characteristic to the Jaguar brand.
The I-PACE places Jaguar at the forefront of the electric vehicle revolution, offering bold aero-efficient design, electrifying all-wheel drive and twin motors which deliver 0-60mph in 4.5s. Its curved, coupe-like silhouette is influenced by the Jaguar C-X75 supercar with a short, low bonnet, aero-enhanced roof design and curved rear screen but inside there’s ample interior space to rival most SUVs. The I-PACE contributes to Jaguar’s vision of a sustainable future, delivering all the sophistication the brand is known for alongside new, innovative technology which offers a thrilling, all-electric drive. Dr Ralph Speth, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover said: “With zero tailpipe emissions, no CO2 and no particulates, it moves us dramatically closer to our vision of a clean, safe and sustainable future.” Inside is equally as innovative; the in-built EV navigation system assesses the geography of the route to destination as well as data from previous journeys, to calculate personalised range and charging status for maximum driver confidence.
Bob Grant, Lookers Jaguar Franchise Director said: “The Jaguar I-PACE is an electric vehicle with all the luxury you’d expect from the brand whilst offering zero emissions and contributing to a sustainable environment. It’s thrilling to have the model in our dealership and it’s certainly been popular amongst our visitors. I have no doubt that it will become a class leader in the electric vehicle market.”
The I-PACE is also one of a host of cars that will be taking part in the carbon neutral Lookers Electric Charge in aid of industry charity Ben. The challenge will see a relay of electric vehicles travel 2,000 miles to destinations including all 155 of the retailer’s franchised dealerships where a wide range of fundraising activities are planned, from carbon neutral days and green energy workshops to test drive events and golf days.
The I-PACE, which is being previewed at this week’s London Motor Show, will be available in showrooms from late Summer onwards and can be pre-ordered now at Taggarts Jaguar Glasgow.
