The Jaguar i-Pace is the company’s brand new SUV. To many people this represents the future of the British brand.
It is seen as Jaguar Land Rover’s first true experience in the world of electricity that it already faces a lot of electric cars on the market in 2018 and beyond.
Before the official opening on March 1st and the official release at the Geneva Motor Show later that month, Jeep Lint flew to the shores of the Art Circle in northern Sweden to try something else: to see how i-Pace played in some of the planet’s toughest situations.
This is not your first drive, as the ride reaches its final limit – minus a temperature of 20 degrees Celsius on a glacier lake.
The idea of it is almost reality
Our words here reflect the leadership of the ultimate i-Pace product under conditions that many do not expect to experience.
While this is not a concept model that the company has been exhibiting for the past one year – as we saw when it was released at LA Auto – it is not yet the final version.
While we are looking at the new i-Pace at sub-zero temperatures, JLR is concerned about what can and should not be shared with us about the final production model, which will be released after 2018.
There are some significant differences in the model with which we have come across the model that you will eventually see on the way.
Our pre-production car does not have a final program. External in its financing will not be just a production option, but sufficient. The dash was also fully covered for launch detection.
However, we have been told that some changes have been made to this concept, but much still needs to be done.
Our engine focuses on efficiency and winter management, and how can the battery handle extreme conditions – which will come in handy for Nippy Ol ‘Blounty? As anyone who has used a smartphone in the cold winter has told you, the battery does not like the cold at once.
What do we know about i-Pace?
Although JLR doesn’t provide too much details about the final production version of i-Pace, it does provide a lot of details about the i-Pace concept, provided things will change, they always change, but we very much doubt it.
Confirmed specifications include all-wheel drive, instantaneous torque of 700০০Nm, 5 PS, 0-60mm in about 5 seconds, and up to 500km (310 mph) on a single charge.
There are five full seats, a 530-liter rear loading space, as well as a 36-liter small front bogie – a feature for power.
From the interior, Jaguar has developed its design language by adding some smart features, including some slim seat development – to reduce mass and keep the weight of the car light – but this is usually quite limited.
Perhaps it will be more noticeable if the whole car is contextually visible with the rest of the final requisite vehicle as it does not currently stress the future of the future in terms of materials such as the BMW i8 or Tesla in terms of technology screens.
For the dashboard experience, the model has four screens present in the driver’s viewpoint: the vehicle information is located outside the steering wheel; Contains a central information and entertainment screen; Another climate control touch screen; In addition to the full-color HUD display, the original display is in the visible part of the windshield.
Zag describes it as the “FlightDeck” control interface, which is everything in hand, which means things like regular pointer legs and gear selector buttons on the floating console – it has climate control knobs.
Smartphone users will have a companion app that you can improve functionality before launching for advance use to preheat the battery and booth.
Pre-conditioning the vehicle according to JLR will ensure maximum range, performance and comfort – whether the temperature is too cool or too hot
Pre-charging time and pre-organization schedules can be setup from the board’s control system or from a remote smartphone application, and it’s as easy as setting an alarm.
If you do not have a suitable station installed at home, charge through the general range of electric charging stations available in the UK, including a three-tooth wall plug.
Does not affect battery space
The front and rear wheel hubs are pushed back and forth, to make room for a large battery pack between the wheels.
As a result, this design provides a spacious front and rear experience, providing space for the driver and four passengers inside. Travelers will thank you for that, of course
“We’ve been able to make the most of the unknown space so far on cars of this size,” explains Dr. Wolfgang Jabbert, technical design director for Jaguar Land Rover, Jaguar.
“The exterior length of the iPS Concept model is within one millimeter or Jaguar XE, but the internal length – from the accelerator paddle to the rear door – ranges from the Range Rover to the long wheelbase and the Range Rover.”
