Jaguar I-Pace Plays in the Snow Before Geneva Debut

Jaguar I-Pace Plays in the Snow Before Geneva Debut

Set to debut at the Geneva motor show, Jaguar has chose to demonstrate the I-Pace's ability to deal with the arctic conditions of nations like Sweden, with temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius in the region. Part of the testing has also taken in northern Sweden this winter, where temperatures reached as low as -40 degrees.

That means putting the vehicle through its paces in Arjeplog, Sweden, where Jaguar Land Rover has a cold weather test facility.

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

Extreme temperatures have a much more severe effect on the performance of electric cars compared to their internal combustion competition. Batteries in particular aren't a fan of being cooled down: it can have a significant impact on overall range, indeed.

When it goes on sale it will have around 300 miles of claimed range on a single charge and be able to go from zero-60mph in around four seconds.

This has led to widespread speculation that the Lok Sabha elections to be conducted in 2019 may be advanced to 2018 itself. Kovind said the government has also formulated a new Metro Rail Policy which laid emphasis on "last mile connectivity".

It's an impressively short time.

The I-Pace is a fully electric crossover that's not to be confused with the soon-to-be-launched and conventionally-powered E-Pace in any way, the battery-powered I-Pace also boasting a sportier design and more upmarket positioning. Last we'd heard, in numbers Jaguar was sharing past year, the I-PACE would do zero to 80-percent in 90 minutes on a 50 kW DC fast charger.

Jaguar will reveal the production I-Pace electric crossover in a live global broadcast on March 1, the same day that order books open. The electric SUV was spotted testing on many occasions.

While the five seater won't compete directly with a Tesla Model X in the seven seat configuration, the cabin should be no less comfortable.

"Customers will be able to use mains power to prepare the car's battery and cabin temperature ahead of a journey". Ahead of the I-Pace's long-awaited premiere, the Tata Motors-owned marque has made a decision to drop new details to ease the wait and get more people excited about the first Jag to come without a combustion engine.
