Experience the all-electric I-PACE

Book test drive

Since its debut, the Jaguar I-PACE has won more than 90 global awards, including the unprecedented treble at the 2019 World Car of the Year Awards, winning World Car Design of the Year, World Green Car and World Car of the Year, reinforcing its status as the benchmark all-electric performance SUV.

Available to order now from our Southampton and Christchurch showrooms the I-PACE has been given a facelift for 2023 to give the car a more distinctive design, richer specifications, the addition of R-Dynamic models and – for the first time – striking satin paints in a choice of two metallic colours. In the UK, a new flagship 400 SPORT variant is introduced, enhancing I-PACE’s sleek visual appeal and fitted as standard with a range of advanced features, including slimline 14-way heated and cooled Ebony Windsor leather seats.

I-PACE has always offered a comprehensive package of performance, agility, technology and everyday usability that customers expect from a Jaguar, together with the smooth, quiet and effortless driving experience that electrification offers.

Refreshed design

The I-PACE’s cab-forward profile, short overhangs and taut, muscular haunches are instantly recognisable and set it apart from other all-electric SUVs.

The front shield grille now has a smooth form, in striking Atlas Grey. Replacing the previous gloss black lozenge pattern, this gives a simpler, cleaner finish to the front of the vehicle while strengthening its inherently electric DNA. Atlas Grey is also applied to the vertical blades at the outside of the front apertures. A further detail change is the new black and silver Jaguar badge in the grille.

The front bumper finishers, lower door finishers and rear diffuser are now body-colour instead of Gloss Black. This treatment serves to simplify and refine the design while taking away visual mass.

Models including the 400 SPORT feature a discreet tailgate spoiler, subtly reflecting

I-PACE’s performance potential and dynamic character (also standard on all other models equipped with 22-inch wheels).

All wheels offered on I-PACE R-Dynamic models as standard equipment are now diamond-turned, while a newly introduced striking 22-inch Style 5069 wheel now has a Satin Grey finish to complement its carbon fibre inserts. All 22-inch wheels may be specified with self-sealing All-Season tyres.

Perfectly complementing theses updates is the exterior Black Pack. Now standard on all models from the R-Dynamic SE Black and above, the Gloss Black finish is applied to the grille surround, window surrounds, door mirror caps and rear badges.

There’s also the option of a contrast panoramic roof, which for the first time enables customers to specify a black finish for the rear section of the roof – until now body-coloured – to complement the sweeping glass panel.

Hendy customers can also specify satin paints for the first time. Offered in a choice of Eiger Grey or new Carpathian Grey, these finishes give I-PACE a sophisticated, contemporary look.

The UK-only 400 SPORT now sits at the top of the I-PACE range, adding additional styling and convenience features above and beyond the R-Dynamic HSE Black, including a bootlid spoiler and adaptive air suspension as well as 22-inch Style 5056 Gloss Black alloy wheels. The 400 SPORT also features I-PACE’s most advanced slimline performance seats, with fine Windsor leather and 14-way adjustable heated and cooled driver memory seats.

Performance and dynamics

I-PACE delivers a true Jaguar driving experience. With light, compact and efficient electric motors integrated into the front and rear axles, I-PACE can accelerate from 0-60mph in just 4.5 seconds and up to maximum speed of 124mph.

I-PACE’s advanced double wishbone front- and Integral Link rear suspension are fundamental to its dynamic capability, together with the low centre of gravity and light, stiff aluminium body structure.

Range and charging

I-PACE’s 90kWh Lithium-ion battery delivers a range of up to 292mile range (WLTP)3. When charging using the fast-growing network of public chargers, a 100kW DC charger can add up to 78 miles of range (WLTP) in just 15 minutes.

Customers can also set charging to stop when the battery reaches a specific level – 80 per cent for example. This is especially useful when using public chargers because you can add only the range you need to reach your destination.

Preconditioning is another easy-to-use technology that enhances the driving experience. While the vehicle is plugged in it automatically heats or cools the battery to its ideal temperature and does the same for the interior, ready for the start of your journey.

Infotainment and connectivity

Inside I-PACE’s spacious interior there’s all the technology you need to make every journey more enjoyable. Every model in the range has the fast, intuitive Pivi Pro infotainment system, offering seamless connectively through wireless Apple CarPlay®, Wireless Android Auto™, integrated Alexa voice control, Spotify, and what3words navigation. Pivi Pro – together with other systems throughout the vehicle – is always up to date thanks to software-over-the-air updates.
