The Jaguar I-PACE has been named ‘Best Electric Vehicle’ at the first ever DrivingElectric Awards. Since its introduction in March the I-PACE has notched up more than 20 major global awards, including German Car of the Year and Sunday Times Car of the Year, for its smart electric powertrain and cutting-edge design.
Two Jaguar electric motors, producing 400PS and 696Nm, allow I-PACE to deliver all-wheel-drive sports car performance, with 0-60mph taking just 4.5 seconds. State-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries allow for a range of 292 miles (WLTP), with a 0-80% charge taking just 85 minutes from a 50kW outlet.
A suite of smart range-optimising technology is fitted as standard, including a battery pre-conditioning system: when plugged in the I-PACE will automatically raise (or lower) the temperature of its battery to maximise range ahead of driving away.
The DrivingElectric Awards are judged by the expert editorial team behind all-new consumer-focused electric vehicle website drivingelectric.co.uk. Created by Dennis Publishing, the brand behind Auto Express and carbuyer.co.uk, DrivingElectric is designed to unravel the occasionally complicated world of hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric motoring.
The Jaguar I-PACE is available to order now, priced from £59,995 (including government incentives) at www.jaguar.co.uk.
