Jaguar I-Pace set for 2018 Geneva auto show debut

Jaguar I-Pace

When it goes on sale it will have around 300 miles of claimed range on a single charge and be able to go from zero-60mph in around four seconds. This comes just before the Geneva Motor Show, and the debut will be shown on a livestream.

The news came by way of yet another JLR teaser video, this one showing the by-now-familiar camouflaged I-Pace prototype in wintry conditions at a test site in Arjeplog, Sweden. Details about the battery pack have not been provided, but with Jaguar promising the road-going I-Pace will largely carry over the concept's specifications, we're expecting a big 90-kWh pack.

Pre-conditioning the vehicle ensures maximum range, performance and comfort whether temperatures are freezing cold or extremely hot, says Jaguar.

The I-PACE was earlier tested in temperatures as low as -40°C.

The release says: "While plugged into power, customers will be able to prepare the car's battery and cabin temperature ahead of a journey without tapping into the battery's range".

That's why Jaguar has developed a pre-conditioning system for the I-Pace that ensures it delivers its maximum range, performance and comfort whether temperatures are freezing cold or extremely hot. Ahead of the I-Pace's long-awaited premiere, the Tata Motors-owned marque has made a decision to drop new details to ease the wait and get more people excited about the first Jag to come without a combustion engine.

With supercar looks, sports auto performance and SUV space all in one electric package, Jaguar promises to rip up the rule book when it comes to what drivers expect from an electric vehicle. Jaguar's electric SUV promises a fast charging of less than 45 minutes from a 100kW charger.

The Jaguar I-PACE will be revealed in a live global broadcast on 19:00 CET on 1 March 2018, and will go on to make its public premiere at the Geneva Motor Show on 6 March 2018.

In its announcement, the iconic British firm touted "sports vehicle performance" combined with "SUV practicality", as well the ability to operated in -40°F temperatures.
