JAGUAR I-PACE THREEPEATS WORLD CAR AWARDS
I-PACE wins 2019 World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year and World Green Car awards
I-PACE is the first model ever to win three World Car titles in the 15-year history of the awards.
This latest win for the I-PACE, awarded at the New York International Auto Show by a panel of 86 motoring journalists from 24 countries, comes just weeks after it claimed the European Car of Year title, and affirms its status as the most desirable premium electric vehicle (EV) in the world.
The Jaguar I-PACE midsize performance SUV is the first battery electric vehicle to be offered by the Jaguar brand. The vehicle’s bold proportions are a direct result of the advanced electric drivetrain and architecture that underpin the vehicle. The cab-forward profile of the I-PACE is a natural progression of the well-established design language of the Jaguar brand and retains key characteristics which make it immediately identifiable as the newest member of the Jaguar brand’s expanding ‘PACE’ family. The spacious interior – enabled by the bespoke electric vehicle architecture – is finished with beautiful premium details and exacting Jaguar craftsmanship.
The I-PACE underlines the Jaguar brand’s dedication to technological advancement and is the first Jaguar to incorporate the intuitive Jaguar InControl® Touch Pro Duo™ infotainment system. It uses an innovative combination of touchscreens, capacitive sensors and tactile physical controls to operate key functions while reducing visual clutter within the cabin3. This new human-machine interface (HMI) design features two touchscreens on the center console, designed to reduce driver distraction; separating information and interactive controls logically, while rotary controllers provide an essential physical connection between car and driver3.
Featuring a 90kWh battery powering Jaguar-designed electric motors placed on the front and rear axles, the I-PACE delivers an EPA estimated range of up to 234 miles4 and 0-60mph acceleration in as little as 4.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 124mph5.
The I-PACE has received 62 awards since it was revealed little more than a year ago, including European Car of the Year, German, Norwegian and UK Car of the Year, BBC TopGear magazine EV of the Year, China Green Car of the Year, and Autobest’s ECOBEST Award.
The 2019 Jaguar I-PACE is currently on sale in the US priced from $69,5002 and can be configured at www.jaguarusa.com.
