I-PACE

Jaguar I-Pace: One for the History Books

By Jake Porter × Vaughn Lowery

Possibly no one expected Jaguar to start producing and manufacturing electric vehicles. However, with the rapid onset of consumers searching for an influx of electric powered automobiles, it is not surprising the illustrious British brand provided its very first, all-electric vehicle. Moreover, to the world’s surprise, the antecessor to the Tesla’s Model X, did not emerge from one of the top European mega brands such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, or Audi. Instead the Whitley, Coventry based Jaguar Land Rover, which has been manufacturing gasoline vehicles for over 80 years, has now effortlessly executed a lavish battery-only SUV.

The brand new Jaguar I-Pace is like no other. Once only rivaled by the Tesla Model X, this fully electric SUV is one of the first of its kind due to its groundbreaking features. First of all, compared to the majority of other electric vehicles on the market today, the I-Pace is powered by a 90 kilowatt hour battery that delivers an exceptional 240 mile range, which could outrun over 90% of the fully electric vehicles on the road today. The one-of-a-kind battery has a superb charge time. A typical kW DC charger can power the vehicle 0%-80% in 85 minutes.

Secondly, the I-Pace’s near silent acceleration and smooth braking are just a couple of the safety features included in the vehicle. The general handling of the vehicle and cornering ability only adds to the value of the car by creating a smooth, highly controlled turn on any surface. In addition, the stiff steering makes the car feel heavy and capable. The wider 22” tires along with all-wheel drive allows the SUV to claw windy roads with ease. The two different breaking modes included in the Default Regenerative Breaking system regenerate energy by efficiently converting available kinetic energy to electricity to charge the battery and extend the range. By selecting the “High” regenerative mode as opposed to the “Low” regenerative mode, it enables an intuitive single pedal driving in many conditions. Hood scoop, flush retractable door handles and back spoiler enhance air flow with a .29 drag coefficient. This feature tops many sports sedans and cars in their stable.

The I-PACE also includes a 3-mode system which alters the driving experience. Specifically, the modes of the vehicle including “Dynamic Mode,” “Comfort Mode” and “Eco Mode” – each of which accurately controls the vehicle in a different way. Dynamic Mode sharpens the throttle and steering responses, while firming up the suspension system for more precise handling. While the Comfort Mode can be used for less-spirited or day-to-day driving, the Eco mode reduces battery load by adjusting the climate of the battery cells with safely heating or cooling while eliminating any other non-essential systems. Each mode, changes the color of the ambient lighting inside the vehicle. These modes are yet another wonderful feature that adds to the pleasant user experience.

Furthermore, the vehicle’s exhilarating driving dynamics with its 394 horsepower and 512 lb-ft torque, produced by its twin electric motors (one at each axle), and its AWD, provide an experience that many drivers will enjoy.

The car is packed with ample road presence and turns heads wherever you go. Its bold, muscular, yet sensual lines make it aesthetically pleasing. This is a true driver’s car.

The Interior

Inside the cabin, the I-Pace comes loaded with an abundance of technology and safety features. Top notch infotainment system alongside of impressive appointments will impress most who step inside. The tempered glass and massive panoramic sunroof create an even more roomier and cozy environment for stargazing. The 825 watt Meridian sound system provides a concert-like experience. Of course, the vehicle also includes interior control panels and digital dials that are all extremely simple and easy to operate.

Comfort and Storage

Beyond it’s impressive all-electric range, its spacious and elegant cabin provide comfort for up to 5 people with ergonomic seating with ample storage in the trunk and, as an added feature, the I-Pace also sports space under the hood as well (aka a frunk). All in all, the total storage rivals that of today’s minivans. This attribute makes the I-Pace great for small families.

Conclusion

The Jaguar I-Pace is one for the history books. The vehicle is extremely difficult to find fault with. It truly has the appearance and spirit of a Jaguar. The comfort and the technology inside the car, as well as its sleek design, create a versatile vehicle perfect for an urban excursion or a local road trip. At $93,000 fully loaded, it’s a force to be reckoned with. This extremely driver intuitive elegantly designed SUV is perfect for a modern family and/or a top level executive.

Land Rover Defender Debut In 2019

Land Rover North America today announced something to celebrate in the New Year, the next-generation Land Rover Defender will be offered for sale in both the U.S. and Canada, starting in 2020.

Testing of the new vehicle is already underway around the world with the first development mules and prototypes reaching North American shores earlier this month. Testing on the continent provides valuable data to engineers given the wide variety of terrain and surfaces available in America. Engineers will subject the vehicle to rigorous test extremes to make sure the new Defender is the most off-road capable Land Rover vehicle ever; operating in temperatures from -40F to +120F while driving the test vehicles on- and off-road at altitudes of more than 13,000 feet above sea level.

“There are a handful of automobiles that are beloved around the world and stand for a brand, a country and a distinct way of life. The Land Rover Defender is such a singular vehicle,” said Kim McCullough, Vice President of Marketing for Jaguar Land Rover North America. “On behalf of Land Rover and our retailers, we are proud to announce the voices of American and Canadian customers has been heard: The all new Defender will be for sale here starting in 2020. This announcement is a holiday gift to our Defender fans in North America and a hint of what’s to come in the New Year.”

Series Land Rover vehicles have garnered a cult-like following for both their iconic design and reputation for rugged go-anywhere utility, making them among the world’s most capable off-road vehicles. In the time since they were sold in the U.S. and Canada, “NAS-Spec” Defender vehicles have appreciated in value significantly and are widely sought after as collectors’ items for both off-road enthusiasts and those who appreciate the design aesthetic of the vehicle.

The Series Land Rover vehicles haven’t changed much since the idea for the first model was dreamed up shortly after World War II by the Wilks brothers on the shores of Red Wharf Bay, Wales, more than 70 years ago. With each successive design – from the Series 1, 2, and 3 Land Rover vehicles, to the later “Defender” branded vehicles – changes were largely evolutionary, rather than revolutionary.

Even the design of the previous generation Defender remained largely unchanged for the 33 years it was produced. Instantly recognizable by its rugged squared-off exterior, round headlights and signature rear-mounted spare tire, the Defender and all Series Land Rover vehicles have been lauded the world over; driven by farmers, military and police, celebrities, and even royalty. By one measure, it’s estimated that a Series Land Rover was the first automobile many of the world’s population ever saw in person.

With an all-new exterior and interior design, as well as a suite of the latest driver assistance and connectivity features available, the next-generation Defender will be a revolutionary product for Land Rover with even broader public appeal. When it debuts in 2019, the new model will represent 70 years of innovation and improvement in just one model year; honoring the model’s history for rugged durability, while thoroughly remaining a Defender for the 21st century.

All will be revealed in 2019.
