Jaguar has been teasing details and brief glimpses of its I-Pace electric car for quite some time, and we’re finally going to see the finished product when it is unveiled on March 1st.
The good news is anyone with an internet connection can witness the reveal, via a live global broadcast at 18:00 GMT, before making its public premiere at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6th.
Jaguar has leaked a few more details ahead of the grand unveiling. The brand recently confirmed that the I-Pace will be capable of charging in 45 minutes.
It has been rigorously tested in extreme terrain and temperature, with trials at Jaguar Land Rover’s cold weather test facility in Arjeplog, Sweden where temperatures can drop as low as -40°C.
Jaguar says the I-Pace will combine sports car performance and SUV practicality to become the perfect everyday car.
The concept car revealed in November 2016 packed 394bhp and was able to sprint to 60mph in around four seconds, with a range of more than 310 miles.
Ian Hoban, Jaguar’s vehicle line director, said: “Not only will the I-Pace charge quickly enough for our customers to carry out their everyday lives, it will offer powerful and precise performance in a variety of conditions and climatic extremes.
“Allied with the versatile credentials of our celebrated PACE family, this will be an electric performance SUV like no other.”
Excitement for the electric SUV has been rife in recent months, so much so that it was recently voted the most anticipated new car of 2018 by readers of What Car? magazine.
It secured six times as many votes of any other model on the shortlist, pretty much humiliating other upcoming cars from Mercedes-Benz, Tesla and Audi.
