New Jaguar I-Pace set to get SVR treatment
All-electric Jaguar I-Pace SUV could get even hotter in the future
Speaking to Auto Express at the launch of the I-Pace in Los Angeles, John Edwards said, “Of course it’s something we’ll look at.” However, the I-Pace already promises plenty of performance with a 0-60mph time of around four seconds expected, prompting Edwards to say: “The car will already be very quick and I’m not sure how much faster people will want to go.”
Jaguar Land Rover’s engineering boss, Wolfgang Ziebart, told us that a balance had to be decided upon with the I-Pace’s 90kWh battery pack between performance and charging time. “Increasing performance is relatively easy,” he told us, “But that would mean less range.”
However, that problem could be eased with Ziebart telling us that he expected the next big step in battery energy density to take place in three to four years time.
As well as that 0-60mph time of around four seconds, Jaguar is quoting a range for the I-Pace of over 300 miles on a full charge. We’d expect the standard car to cost in the region of £55,000 when it goes on sale in 2018.
