Jaguar Land Rover India launched the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE in India with a starting price of Rs 1.06 crore (ex-showroom India).

The Jaguar I-PACE is powered by a 90 kWh battery that delivers 294 kW power and 696 Nm torque, allowing the I-PACE to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 4.8 s.

The Jaguar I-PACE is the first Battery Electric Vehicle to be launched in India by Jaguar Land Rover, marking a significant milestone in the electrification journey.

“With our electrified products we look forward to playing a significant role in India’s electrification drive into the future,” said Rohit Suri, President & Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd.

GOING ELECTRIC MADE EASY

The company said 22 retail outlets across 19 cities are now EV ready with over 35 EV chargers installed and more underway.  These chargers are a combination of 7.4 kW AC chargers and 25 kW DC (fast) chargers.

Further, to charge the Jaguar I-PACE, customers may either use a Home Charging Cable that is provided as standard with the vehicle or use a 7.4 kW AC wall mounted charger that is also provided as standard. The installation of this charger at the customer’s house will be done by Tata Power Ltd, and will be coordinated via Jaguar Retailers.

Customers may also access Tata Power’s fast expanding EZ Charge network of around 200 I-PACE compatible charging points on a use and pay basis.

Jaguar I-PACE is provided with complimentary 5 years of service package, 5 years roadside assistance package, 8 years or 160 000 km battery warranty and a 7.4 kW AC wall mounted charger.

CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY

I-PACE features the latest & more driver-focused technology and is the first Jaguar in India to offer Pivi Pro Infotainment System. The 31.24 cm (12.3) HD instrument cluster features completely revised graphics to give an even clearer indication of battery state of charge.

The I-PACE is available with wireless device charging pad beneath the ‘floating’ centre console. Wireless charging also includes signal boosting, ensuring the phone’s signal remains strong for longer.

A Smartphone Pack with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ is available, as is Bluetooth technology which can pair two phones simultaneously ensuring you’ll always be connected.

The I-PACE is equipped with Software over the Air (SOTA) functionality. This means Systems including infotainment, battery management and charging can be updated remotely. Using the vehicle’s built-in data connection, the latest software can be downloaded automatically.

All occupants benefit from the enhanced climate control system, which delivers smart, energy-efficient heating or cooling of up to four zones independently. When charging, customers can use the I-PACE’s pre-conditioning system (which optimizes battery temperature) to also purge the cabin of allergens and ultrafine particles before beginning a journey.

ELECTRIFYING PERFORMANCE

Its 294 kW of peak power takes you from 0-100 km/h in only 4.8 s. The 90 kWh battery is positioned within the floor, between the axles, giving a low centre of gravity and near perfect weight distribution.

The I-PACE is underpinned by an advanced electric vehicle architecture created specifically for this car that delivers excellent driving dynamics while minimizing weight. The double wishbone suspension at the front and integral link suspension at the rear have been tuned to give the I-PACE the perfect balance of dynamic handling and refinement.

Jaguar Land Rover vehicles are available in India in 24 cities, through 28 authorized outlets in Ahmedabad, Aurangabad, Bengaluru (3), Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh, Chennai (2), Coimbatore, Delhi, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Kolkata, Kochi, Karnal, Lucknow, Ludhiana, Mangalore, Mumbai (2), Noida, Pune, Raipur, Surat and Vijayawada.
