I-PACE WINS CONCEPT CAR OF THE YEAR
Jaguar Dallas is proud of the Jaguar I-PACE Concept for bring home the top award, the ‘Most Significant Concept Vehicle of 2017’, from the 16th North American Concept Vehicle Awards. The Jaguar I-PACE also won the ‘Production Preview Concept of the Year’ category.
The North American Concept Vehicle Awards are held at the Concours d’Elegance of America. More than 24 judges critique and look over the selection of vehicles. The vehicles selected are concept cars that have been introduced at one of North America’s auto shows this season (these auto shows include New York, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, and Los Angeles).
The Jaguar I-PACE, Jaguar’s first all-electric vehicle, continues to stun around the world with its ‘beautiful and futuristic design.’ It will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 4 seconds. It will also have a range of more than 500km from its 90kWh lithium-ion battery. Charing the Jaguar I-PACE shouldn’t be a problem at all. Using 50kW DC charging, it will charge 80 percent in just 90 minutes.
“Our challenge was to design an electric vehicle that’s distinctively and unmistakably a Jaguar – and one which demonstrates that an electric vehicle can be visually dramatic as well as practical,” Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, said. “I think that the Jaguar I-PACE Concept has done exactly that, and is clearly at the forefront of the trend for more beautiful, more desirable electric vehicles. We’re very proud of it, and we’re delighted that the North American jurors have recognizes us for succeeding in our mission by awarding the I-PACE Concept the 2017 Concept Car of the Year.”
Even though the Jaguar I-PACE offers SUV space, it is still compact with lightweight motors in the front and back. Nothing compromises a Jaguar’s performance. The Jaguar I-PACE is expected to be on sale in the second half of 2018.
