Jaguar I-PACE Wins Car of the Year Award

By Paul Joseph

As a further indication of the growing influence and popularity of electric vehicles, the Jaguar I-PACE all-electric SUV has been named Car of the Year in a News UK survey.

The I-PACE was also named Green Car of the Year, securing its fifth major award since its worldwide reveal in March.

The News UK motoring awards are shortlisted by the motoring experts from News UK’s publications, including the Sunday Times and The Sun. The results are determined by a combination of industry expert and public votes.

Rawdon Glover, Managin Director of Jaguar Land Rover UK, said: "We’re absolutely overjoyed to see the I-PACE pick up another two major awards in the UK, including Sunday Times Car of the Year.

"We’ve always said that I-PACE is revolutionary, using technology, design and packaging never before seen in a Jaguar, and we’re extremely grateful that the media and our customers agree with us. I-PACE is absolutely a sign of things to come from Jaguar, so I’m sure there’s a bright future ahead.”

With a 292-mile range, five seats, zero emissions, the I-PACE is both a practical and exhilarating SUV, packed full of the latest innovations.

The I-PACE will be able to achieve a 0-80 percent battery charge in 85-minutes using DC charging (50kW) and offer a range of up to 292 miles on a single charge. Home charging with an approved Jaguar AC wall box (7kW) will achieve the same state of charge in just over ten hours – ideal for overnight charging.

The I-PACE calculates range using the most accurate system Jaguar has ever produced, taking into account route topography, climate conditions and driver inputs.

It is also Jaguar’s first vehicle to include the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, capable of over-the-air software updates, and uses artificial intelligence to adapt to a driver’s personal preferences, ensuring driving and infotainment settings are matched to each individual using the car.

The Jaguar I-PACE is available to order, priced from £58,995.
