The Jaguar I-Pace (stylized as i-PACE) is a battery-electric crossover SUV manufactured by Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), a British-based subsidiary of Indian automobile manufacturer Tata, under its Jaguar brand. With no upgrades made to Jaguars I-Pace powertrain or performance, the I-Pace takes on competitors such as Teslas Model X and Y, the Ford Mustang Mach-E, and Audis E-Tron, promising to be what Jaguar calls a eminently affordable EV SUV. The only all-electric vehicle so far is Jaguars own I-Pace SUV, which Bloomberg notes has had trouble making headway against more established EV makers.
The new range promises to make Jaguar feel more premium, with the three SUV-electric crossover models taking Jaguar into Bentley territory, writes Autocar. Jaguar says it will offer three new battery-electric SUVs by 2025, all built on its Panthera platform. Its proprietary battery-electric platform, called Panthera, will be at the heart of Jaguars multiple battery-electric models, and Jaguar is keen not to share key components or the vehicles form with other carmakers. Autocar reports Jaguar, under its plans for reinvention, is developing a special EV chassis, which it has called Panthera.
As Tata Motors accelerates its own electrification process, its next fully-new, fully-electric SUV is likely to share both technology and styling cues with Jaguars new one. A new concept, such as what Tata Motors is teasing in its latest video, may foreshadow some technology or design of the next Jaguar EV SUV or Land Rover. The Jaguar Land Rovers is reported to unveil a new design language for the next-generation, fully electric models in a new, possibly close-to-production concept model, by the end of 2024, according to the popular Global Motor Show.
Jaguar Land Rover Automotive PLC Tata Motors India said that its Land Rover brand would introduce six all-electric models in the next five years, the first coming in 2024. Jaguar Land Rovers luxury Jaguar brand will go fully electric by 2025, Jaguar Land Rover Automotive PLC said Monday, joining a global race to develop zero-emission vehicles. Jaguar will become an entirely electric brand from 2025, Jaguar is re-engineering all of its cars and SUVs. Jaguar is going from being heritage-based to becoming a fully-electric brand in five years, with its vehicles set to be powered by 6 electric vehicles by 2025, the British company announced this morning.
In parallel, Jaguar and Land Rover have announced plans to build battery plants and add electric SUVs and cars to their ranges, with Jaguar saying it will become an all-electric brand by 2025.
Jaguar indicated at the time that one of Jaguars future electric vehicle platforms will be an Electric Modular Architecture (EMA) architecture, which would be at the heart of several electric medium-sized SUVs, along with Jaguar Land Rover models. Jaguar was going to abandon their loose-leaning approach to chassis architecture in order to design only three platforms for future models, with one remaining exclusive to Jaguars most luxury-oriented brands. Jaguar Land Rovers has been working with BMW Group on electric drive units (EDUs), but as the Jaguar brand seeks to create a distinctive design identity within the realm of luxury vehicles, the custom platform would be a non-negotiable. JLR chief executive Thierry Bollore said that after announcing last year that Jaguar will be an all-electric brand from 2025, Jaguar Land Rover would seek out platforms from outside Magna International.
Nick Collins, executive director, vehicle programmes, Jaguar Land Rover, told Auto Express the first prototypes of the new Jaguar electric cars, which are built on the special platform, would begin on-road trials in two months time (as reported June 15, 2022). Rumours are rife that Jaguars larger sedans are gone, SUV emphasis will shift back towards brand-sister Land Rover, with Jaguar now focussing on EV sports cars and a smaller crossover to compete with Teslas Model 3 and Polestar 2.
The high-end electric Jaguar will also rival Lotus new big EV SUV, due for sale next year, followed by sedans and smaller SUVs. Jaguars current lone, but highly sold, electric vehicle, the I-Pace, is expected to survive conversion, but it is separated from the new range. Three models of electric crossover SUVs will use Jaguars Panthera, its BEV platform, and are designed to breach the PS100,000 price barrier.
Jaguar unveiled Jaguars flagship fully electric SUV, the I-PACE, in 2019. Prior to 2019, the brand had never included an all-electric car in their lineup, but all that changed when it unveiled Jaguars highly-praised SUV, the I-PACE. Jaguar has the Jaguars only all-electric car.
The Jaguar I-Pace has a 0-62-mph acceleration of 4.5 seconds, which is one second slower than the 3.5-second time for the performance version of the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, and two seconds slower than the Tesla Model Xs Tackle Sprint. Powered by a pair of electric motors, the i-PACE retains Jaguars sportscar capabilities, zipping from 0-60 miles per hour in just 4.5 seconds. The Jaguar I-Pace 2022 boasts standard four-wheel drive, thanks to twin electric motors producing 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque combined. The Jaguar I-Pace is powered by a 90-kilowatt-hour battery pack, giving it a claimed 234-mile range on electric power; it has a small edge to the 2021 Audi E-Trons estimated 222 miles on electric power.
