Since 2008, a renaissance in electric vehicle manufacturing has occurred

The Jag of all Jaguars

Posted on 18th September 2019 - by EVision - The Latest EV News

Everyone and their mother knows that the Jaguar is an all time classic but the Jaguar I-Pace is something engineered and designed from the future. The balance of beauty and power is what makes the I-Pace the European Car of the year 2019. If you are still unconvinced about whether to hire a Jaguar I-Pace, let us explain the best features this EV has to offer.

Performance

The Jaguar I-Pace is a powerful performing EV that we have available to hire here at EVision Electric Vehicle Hire. The I-Pace has a 4 wheel drive powered by 2 motors, 1 situated at the front and 1 at the back. This EV delivers all-surface and all-weather drivability with a range of 292 miles and a top speed of 124mph. The Jaguar also comes with adjustable suspension to alter the ground clearance and regenerative braking to increase the driving range. 

The Exterior Bodywork 

Where do we even start with the Jaguar I-Paces Exterior? 

The exterior is designed to optimise the vehicles aerodynamics whilst driving. This focus has been rolled out to areas such as the bonnet, rear and even door handles.Jaguar I-Pace exterior All of these elements allow the Jaguar I-Pace to slice cleanly through the air for optimised range and stability, both of which benefit the vehicle's performance and the users experience. 

The door handles of the Jaguar I-Pace sit flush to the vehicles sides ensuring that airflow passes smoothly around the exterior. 

The bonnet scoops function is to reduce the drag whilst travelling forward, channeling air through the scoop via the grille and out passing over the curved roofline. This is engineered for maximum efficiency to increase acceleration and driving range. 

The rear diffuser is situated under the bumper of the vehicle and helps channel and smooth airflow from underneath the Jaguar I-Pace’s flat underfloor tray. The overall shape of the rear bodywork is squared off on the corners to encourage air to detach cleanly thus minimising the drag on the vehicle.

The Headlights 

The Jaguar I-Pace comes with slim and futuristic LED headlights in the signature double ‘J’ blade graphic. Improved visibility and safety at night time is enhanced when using Adaptive Matrix LED. This maintains continuous use of the high beam but automatically adjusts and shifts the shape of the beam to avoid dazzling oncoming vehicles.

The rear tail lights are also LED and sleek to match the headlights. The Adaptive Matrix LED option adjusts the tail lights also to the same animated directional indicator feature of Jaguar I-Pace headlights.

The Interior

The Jaguar I-Pace interior is exquisitely designed for luxury. Handcrafted touches create a sleek and modern atmosphere inside. The clean and uncluttered interior seamlessly integrates technology into the design. 

The Jaguar I-Pace has an abundance of space with a floating centre console. The placement of the console is where a gear stick would traditionally be, providing the perfect place to store small valuables such as phones whilst driving. Jaguar I-Pace interior

You may be thinking where is the gear stick then? The gear stick is no longer what it used to be. In the I-Pace it is situated on the left hand side of the floating centre console, minimised for appearance and revolutionised into buttons for ease. Starting the vehicle is just as straightforward, put your foot on the brake, press the stop/start button and select D for drive.

The front centre armrest houses additional storage in the form of a secret cubby bin, cup holders and phone holder. Whilst the back of the armrest has an additional 2 USB ports accessible for backseat passengers. With a total of 6 accessible USB ports it makes sense to hire a Jaguar I-Pace for any long journey.

The spacious design has been increased through the architecture of the Jaguar I-Pace, the front seats are positioned further forwards to where an engine would be in a standard ICE vehicle. This not only improves the driving position but also provides additional legroom for backseat passengers. 

Our Jaguar I-Paces available at EVision come with sports style seats, they are expertly designed to support drivers and passengers through every turn. 

The load space in the rear boot is exceptionally spacious and if that is not enough, the EV comes with an additional storage compartment in the likes of a frunk underneath the bonnet.

Safety

The Jaguar I-Pace features have all been designed to enhance your driving experience and provide more safety. Some safety features of this EV include; a rigid cage around the battery made from aluminium and steel, 2 ISOFIX points for attaching baby/ child seats and a rear camera to provide improved visibility when reversing. 

Should anything ever go wrong the I-Pace comes with a system of 6 airbags; driver and passenger airbags, side curtain and thorax to give maximum protection.

In-Car Technology

The Jaguar I-Paces integrated technologies make controlling the features and connected devices straightforward. This streamlined experience, both in car and out has everything you need located conveniently by you. 

The vehicle comes equipped with two touchscreens; the 10” infotainment system and the lower 5” touch screen with multi-function dials.

The Jaguar I-Pace has an abundance of controls built into the steering wheel. These include your conventional answering phone calls and adjusting the volume. However Jaguar could not stop there, the I-Pace also comes with voice-control, this feature can set navigation to any destination you wish; a helpful feature for exploring. 

The lower interactive screen allows you to set the climate of the vehicle with a single touch. This feature allows you to adjust the airflow inside the EV as well as turn the heated seats on and set whether you require one or both.  

For music enthusiasts the Jaguar I-Pace comes with a Meridian sound system, providing you with more clarity than standard car speakers. Experience the Jaguar driving experience with sophisticated sound that fills the cabin for your pleasure.
