In its first production year, the Jaguar I-PACE is laying the foundation for years to come. Around the world, people are taking notice of the I-PACE. In Canada, it’s been voted as the Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year by Automobile Journalists Association of Canada for 2019!
That’s high praise to be nominated for the AJAC 2019 Utility Vehicle of the Year award, not to mention take home the top spot. But another feather in the cap came from the same awards ceremony: the 2019 GREEN Utility Vehicle of the Year award also goes to the Jaguar I-PACE.
What Makes the Jaguar I-PACE an Award-Winning Vehicle?
It takes refinement and ingenuity at every facet to win prestigious awards like the AJAC Utility Vehicle of the Year title. The Jaguar I-PACE has it in spades.
As the first all-electric performance vehicle from Jaguar, there’s an emphasis on a thrilling driving experience. The Jaguar I-PACE delivers flawlessly. Near-perfect 50/50 front-to-rear weight distribution, two electric motors for 394 hp and 512 lb.-ft. of instant torque, and intuitive all-wheel drive don’t just lend themselves to knee-buckling performance – they force the issue.
Long Range Efficiency
The Jaguar I-PACE’s acceleration and range are fueled by an immense cache of power. Slung low in the chassis, a 90 kWh battery ensures the I-PACE has a functional range of up to 377km on a single charge. Enhanced Brake Regeneration compliments the I-PACE nicely, converting braking energy into stored battery power.
Immediately recognizable with the trademark Jaguar grille and front end design, the Jaguar I-PACE is a stunning work of art. Going beyond, it’s a gorgeous, flowing sculpted vehicle that integrates class-leading aerodynamics for improved efficiency.
Inside the spacious cabin, clean lines and symmetry reign. From the intuitive Touch Pro Duo infotainment system to the crystal-clear Meridian sound system, LuxTec seats, available quad-zone climate control, and optional heated seats and steering wheel, the Jaguar I-PACE puts a premium on the intelligent, ergonomic design.
Well-Behaved Vehicle Dynamics
For recognition as an AJAC winner, the I-PACE was put through its… well… paces. It’s proven to be one of the best-behaved vehicles in its class. Active Air Suspension lowers the car automatically at speeds higher than 105km for improved handling. Adaptive Dynamics monitors vehicle movements up to 500 times per second to provide a luxurious and customizable experience, no matter the driving conditions.
The all-new Jaguar I-PACE delivers all the performance, luxury, and driving dynamics you could want with zero tailpipe emissions. Find out more about the 2020 Jaguar I-PACE when you visit Budd’s Jaguar in Oakville, Ontario.
