Jaguar has unveiled a new and very cool concept car ahead of the LA Motor Show 2016 – the Jaguar I-PACE Concept. The unveil itself was as futuristic as the car with a virtual reality presentation to show the concept in all its glory. The I-PACE, an all electric sporty SUV will hum its way to 100km/h in just over 4 seconds and features rapid charging technology for the 90 kWh battery that produces 395 horsepower. The lithium ion battery was designed and engineered in house at Jaguar Land Rover and promises to take electric car performance to a new level.
Such performance is capable given the I-PACE is all-wheel-drive and generates a massive 700Nm of torque. Although the car we see here is a concept, Jaguar confirmed that the production I-PACE will hit the road in 2018. We hope the looks of both the exterior and interior are not altered much in the final production car as the I-PACE certainly looks like the car from the future!
Ian Callum, Director of Design, said: “The I-PACE Concept represents the next generation of electric vehicle design. It’s a dramatic, future-facing cab-forward design with a beautiful interior – the product of authentic Jaguar DNA, electric technology and contemporary craftsmanship.
“Our virtual reality reveal today has pushed technology boundaries as well, and captures the hi-tech essence of the concept car. We only have one concept car and it is in LA for the reveal. For the first time, VR has allowed us share it across the globe in the most immersive way possible.”
