Jaguar I-Pace India Launch Postponed To March 23
On 23 March 2021, the all-electric Jaguar I-Pace will commence in India. Jaguar’s first EV was already expected to be unveiled on 9 March, but the car manufacturer has now postponed its arrival later this month. Last year, Jaguar formally began accepting EV reservations.
The I-Pace can fuel a 90kWh battery that transmits power to two electric motors with a combined torque of 400hp and 696Nm. As claimed by Jaguar, the 2.2-ton SUV will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.8sec and achieve a top speed of 200km/h. The I-Pace has a WLTP range of 470 km on a single charge, but there isn’t a certified range of the ARAI.
In order to provide additional calm to their clients, in addition to the regular8-year or 1.60.000 km battery pledge, JAGUAR will have a free5-year service plan and 5-year roadside maintenance.
Jaguar in India offers three versions of the I-Pace electric SUV – S, SE, and HSE for the top-spec. The base-specific I-Pace includes a well-kitted 19-inch, diamond-cutting alloy wheel, LED headlamps, a full-length fixed glass roof, a PiviPro, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto-support dual-touch infotainment system, an “InControl” connected car tech, and more.
More accessories including the ‘Matrix’ adaptive LED headlights, hands-free boot releasing, adaptive cruise control, a ‘Windsor’ leather sports seat, and a 16-speaker sound system with 825 W of meridian will be available with the top-spec HSE trim.
With active air suspension, four-zone climate control, a PM2.5 filtrated ionizing air purifier, and a digital rear-view mirror, the Jaguar will offer an external I-Pace with a range of optional extras.
Jaguar acknowledges India’s lackluster charging infrastructure and has collaborated with Tata Power to deliver both I-Pace client’s home and office charging services. As things stand, in India Tata Power has developed an electronic charging network with over 200 charging stations, called ‘EZ Charge,’ to be accessible by I-Pace owners in over 23 major cities.
The buying of the EV is also included with a free 7.4kW AC wall-mounted charger.
The Mercedes-Benz EQC Electric SUV, which was introduced last October at the introductory price of Rs 99.30 lakh (ex-showroom), will currently only compete with the Jaguar I-Pace EV. This is only supposed to heat up the competition in the sector with the arrival of the Audi e-Tron.
