Jaguar's I-Pace set to debut in Geneva in March

Jaguar I Pace Reveal Announced For March 1

Jaguar released a new video featuring extreme winter tests of its I-PACE electric SUV at the Jaguar Land Rover's Ice Academy in Sweden.

Unsurprisingly, the feedback on how the i-Pace copes with ice and properly low temperatures is positive, and if the electric SUV can cope with -40C it should be just fine most other places.

Rigorously tested across extremes of terrain and temperature, the I-PACE has tamed the Arctic at Jaguar Land Rover's cold weather test facility in Arjeplog, Sweden, at temperatures as low as -40°C.

One challenge with EVs in cold weather is the temperature of the battery.

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

"Jaguar's all-electric I-PACE will deliver both rapid charging and rapid performance when it goes on sale on 1 March". What we do know now, however, is how long that battery will take to charge. Jaguar's electric SUV promises a fast charging of less than 45 minutes from a 100kW charger.

It's an impressively short time.

What's been made public so far is that the I-Pace's 90-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery will power a pair of electric motors, one for each axle, and deliver 400 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque.

Autoblog points out when the vehicle was first announced in the summer of 2016, Jaguar touted two hours for an 80% charge, so it's a big leap forward.

This is not at fast as the Tesla Supercharger but will still offer a decent option for Jag drivers on the go. Users will be able to pre-set the cabin temperature before getting in using a remote smartphone app, or via the on-board InControl touch-screen system using the temperate scheduling function. No word on pricing at this stage, but we should find out all the spec and performance details ahead of the Geneva Motor Show.

Jaguar's final rating - along with the all-important range numbers - will be shared when the production I-PACE makes its debut in early March.
