THE DAY THE WORLD SHIFTED – DRIVING I-PACE

It is not any exaggeration to say that for me at least, yesterday the world shifted just a little on its very stable axis.  It was the day I first drove the highly acclaimed new all electrically powered Jaguar I-Pace.

Call it an SUV, or sports car or four door saloon – it is easily and capably all of those things.

It was the first all-electric car I had driven, and I was unsure what it would feel like behind the wheel.  Would it be sterile, something like a slot car with no feel?

Well, I promise it is the complete opposite.

Most of all, it is a real Jaguar where the hallowed Pace Space and Grace theme is totally adhered to.  It is extremely fast, very responsive and totally luxurious.

We will have a huge cover story on the newest and most revolutionary Jaguar ever, in our next edition.

Stand up and feel very proud that Jaguar is the first vehicle manufacturer in the world to put an all-electically driven vehicle onto the market – anywhere in the entire world.  And they have got it very right.

The revolution here here and now.

If you are reading this in Australia, this information is relevant to you.

Aided by regenerative braking, claimed WLPT driving range is 470km and the I-PACE can be charged to 80 per cent via a 7kW AC wallbox ($2280) in 10 hours (at the rate of 35km per hour, or three times faster than a domestic power outlet), or via a maximum 100kW DC fast-charger in 40 minutes (at the rate of 100km per 15 minutes).

Jaguar says that at an electricity price of 30 cents/kWh, the I-PACE will average $5.70 per 100km, equating to a $1500 annual saving over an equivalent conventional SUV.

Jaguar Australia has committed to installing more than 150 fast-chargers nationally, including at its 45 dealerships, at a cost of around $4 million.

All local I-PACE buyers will a three-year subscription to the Jaguar’s new charging network, which is being installed by JET Charge using its Chargefox system, and all vehicles feature an on-board 7kW single-phase charger and a multi-function 32A Mode 2 universal charging cable.

The I-PACE battery has an eight-year, 160,000km warranty and the vehicle itself by a five-year/200,000km warranty including roadside assist – two years and 100,000km more than any other Jaguar.

Over-the-air software updates are also part of the deal, as is the Jaguar InControl Remote app allowing pre-cooling, un/locking, timed charging, eco mode and EV navigation.

How much is the 2019 Jaguar I-PACE? in Australia?

S – $119,000

SE – $130,200

HSE – $140,800

First Edition – $159,700

ENTER THE ALL ELECTRIC NEW JAGUAR – FIRST DRIVE TODAY

I have just arrived back home and in the office after a massively long day driving the near full range of new all-electric I-Pace Jaguars.  I had never driven an electric powered car.

No journalists in this country (Australia) can report on those drives until tomorrow due to an embargo – but wait – it will be worth it and, of course, it is going to be all over edition #196.

I know what is going to be our cover – because it was specifically shot for us today during the lunch stop.  Nothing happened by chance!

Come back soon for our impressions

NEWEST EDITION IS NOW OUT – BOB JANE, XJ220/XJR15, WORKS RACING MK1S …

We have been a little delayed with edition #195 because a sensational story landed late about a mysterious XJ220 and an XJR-15 sharing one garage in Melbourne!

But we are out now, and on digital at Magzter immediately.

You will read about Bob Jane’s huge life – and you will learn things which have never been told before and shaped his future.  That includes his massively controversial race in the UK driving a Coombs Mk2.

We test drive the gorgeous looking XF Sportbrake for the first time.

We compare the XK150 with the XK8 if you happen to be considering a Jaguar sports classic.

Then then is the revelation that only seven ‘works built’ Mk1 racers were ever built – and does not include Mike Hawthorn’s racer, and the ex-David McKay ‘Grey Pussy’.  But we trace the seven cars, two of which came new to Australia and also the US.

… and that is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

Don’t forget to consider a subscription for a Christmas present also.

NEXT F-TYPE SPORTS WILL BE ALL-ELECTRIC!

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) today announced that in 2021 the sale will be all-electric version of the sports car Jaguar F-Type new generation.

Now in the line Jaguar already has one electric car – the I-Pace. It is equipped with two motors with a total power of 197 horsepower and battery with a capacity of 90 kilowatts. Of course, for a sports car it’s not very impressive results, but we believe that at the time of its appearance on the market, gets more powerful electric motors and higher capacity battery. Otherwise, you will not be able to compete with other electric sports car.

Sorry, JLR, has not yet said whether the new Jaguar F-Type only with electric propulsion, or buyers continue to offer versions with gasoline engines. It seems that the bosses of this company, yet this issue has not made a final decision.

Jaguar Land Rover now, by the way, together with BMW, is developing a new generation of petrol engine V8. This project, called Project Jennifer. At the top the new version of the 4.4 l twin-turbo engine will have a capacity of 640 HP With this engine the F-Type would become more powerful than even the Porsche 911.Sports car Jaguar F-Type will be the electric car

In any case, regardless of the type of power plant F-Type new generation to build on the new aluminum platform. Due to this the car will be easier than it is now.

Indian group Tata, which owns Jaguar Land Rover, disagree with its sales of diesel and petrol models. So gradually the British will go for cars with electric propulsion.
