Here at Jaguar Northfield, we’re more than a little excited for the arrival of the all-electric 2019 Jaguar I-PACE, the company’s all-new upcoming SUV. While this is the automaker’s first foray into electric vehicles, it looks poised to make a huge splash in the automotive market. The folks over at Roadshow by CNET have already had the opportunity to get behind the wheel, and after a week hitting the streets in the 2019 Jaguar I-PACE, they’re mighty impressed. What stands out in their review is how well this all-new model retains its Jaguar pedigree. “Jaguar’s first electric car is attractively styled and boasts the company’s hallmark handling capabilities that go together well with a potent electric powertrain,” says the article, which sums up its findings rather succinctly with the heading “Traditional Jag values, truly modern powertrain.”

So just what can drivers expect from this eccentric electric SUV? The 90kWh battery delivers a manufacturer’s estimated range of up to 240 miles on a single charge. When it comes to charging, drivers have the option of using either AC or DC power for added convenience. Speaking of convenience, the battery can be charged from 0 percent to 80 percent in only 40 minutes using a 100kW public fast charger. And just what kind of power does this battery provide? Enough to propel the 2019 Jaguar I-PACE from 0 – 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. It’s nice to know you can still smoke the competition, even in an electric SUV.

Every Jaguar vehicle comes with Jaguar EliteCare, the company’s best-in-class ownership package including warranties, maintenance, roadside assistance, and more. This already-impressive package has been expanded for the Jaguar I-PACE to include an eight-year / 100,000-mile battery warranty.

The 2019 Jaguar I-PACE promises to be a strong addition to the Jaguar SUV lineup. If you’re in the market for a new Jaguar SUV, be sure to head in to our Jaguar dealership near Chicago, IL.
