Cleanest, greenest Jaguar sets the Pace..

Cleanest, greenest Jaguar sets the Pace..

Jaguar at the forefront of electric vehicle revolution..

Jaguar’s entry into the electric car market with the high-speed I-Pace SUV is turning heads, and eco-minded motorists are digging deep to order this very fast and beautiful motor.

We have test-driven the I-Pace UK-wide and found it quietly did everything we asked, including high-speed motorways, narrow, winding roads of the Peak District and rain-swept Scottish Lowlands.

We loved the vehicle’s great looks, spaciousness, very responsive steering and easy driver controls. The I-Pace has been upgraded to deliver 290 miles per charge – perfect for quick trips – like my short hop up the Old Great North Road to Barnby Moor near Retford, where the I-Pace, multi-winning awards winner and World Car of the Year in 2019,  went down very well with admiring farming locals.

Good Holiday highly rates Jaguar’s twin electric-engine supercar and its Wow-factor technology. It‘s so easy to love and so easy to drive – I sat in the spacious driver’s seat and silently and speedily drove off, something I could never do in other electric cars or hybrids.

The I-Pace costs circa £65,000 but with close to zero re-fill costs, drivers will love the typical good-looking latest Jaguar.  Here are the I-Pace good points –

  • NOW featuring a new infotainment system, three phase AC home charging and more driver-focused technology
  • Pivi Pro infotainment system: as quick and easy to use as a smartphone, with self-learning navigation that can show you where the nearest available charge station, how much it will cost and how long to charge. So no more scouring the roads for a charger.
  • Home charging: 11kW (AC) domestic wall box can add 53km/33miles of range (WLTP) per hour for customers with three-phase supplies
  • Performance and range: 0-60mph in 4.5 (0-100km/h 4.8 seconds) seconds and range of up to 470km / 292 miles (WLTP)
  • WOW connectivity: Dual-modem embedded SIM with 4G data plan, wireless device charging, embedded Spotify, and Bluetooth for two phones at the same time
  • WOW technology: A new 3D surround camera and ClearSight rear-view digital mirror give drivers unimpeded visibility
  • Passenger wellbeing: Cabin air ionisation with PM2.5 filtration captures ultrafine particles and allergens. The I-PACE can filter cabin air while on charge before a journey
  • New Bright Pack option: accentuates I-PACE’s World Car of the Year award-winning design
  • Enhanced software-over-the-air capability: Systems including infotainment, battery management and charging can be updated remotely and enable the
    I-PACE to continuously improve over time
  • I-Pace director Alan Volkaerts says : “When we developed the I-PACE we wanted  to be the world’s most desirable electric vehicle and to show what happens when Jaguar goes electric. I think we’ve achieved those ambitious goals.”

Good Holiday will be testing the I-Pace with the latest gadgets and improvements, and will report soon.
