Jaguar I-PACE
There has been much anticipation around a Jaguar electric vehicle since the I-PACE Concept debuted in 2016, and the all-electric 2019 Jaguar I-PACE that debuted during press days at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show does not disappoint. Built on a unique aluminum-intensive EV architecture that uses advanced riveting and bonding technology, the I-PACE features a light, stiff body structure with a 50:50 weight distribution. The battery is positioned as low as possible between the axles for a low center of gravity, and with a suspension system that includes double wishbones at the front and an Integral Link rear suspension with standard Active Air Suspension, one could expect good ride quality and agile handling. With a long 117.7-inch wheelbase and an overall length of 184.3 inches, the I-PACE has a similar footprint to the Jaguar F-PACE but offers the interior space of a larger vehicle, thanks to the EV architecture.
