Four Things We Learned When We Drove the Jaguar I-Pace EV

After two days behind the wheel of the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace in early June, we can confirm that the British automaker has delivered a stylish, highly capable luxury EV. With its 90 kilowatt-hour battery pack providing 240 miles of range, and an electric propulsion system capable of zooming to 60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds, the I-Pace sets a new standard for a long-range EV from an established luxury automaker. While we expected the I-Pace to be a beast on the road and offer a high degree of luxury appointments in the cabin, we discovered four things that surprised us.

C-X75 Is Killed, But Plug-in Hybrids Are Alive at Jaguar

The Jaguar C-X75 plug-in hybrid supercar concept was the star of the 2010 Paris motor show. It was unveiled with a twin turbine set-up, but we learned later that the production model would get a super high revving four-cylinder engine. Its top speed would be over 200 miles per hour while fuel consumption would be better than a Prius in normal driving. And all that with a 30-mile range on battery power. It's a dream come true, but it will remain just a dream. Jaguar announced last week it had cancelled its plans to turn its great concept into a production model. Nonetheless, it's a safe bet that there will be a production plug-in hybrid Jaguar in the future.
