Jaguar R-Pace: the brand presents a new prototype for testing


New prototype of the I-Pace.

The british brand has revealed the first images of what they call the first prototype of the new I-Pace, Jaguar will develop the production version of the SUV electric. We don’t know if this is really the first prototype, but what we do know is that this is not the first unit test, as we have already seen on several occasions mules testing of the model, based on the SUV F-Pace.

The brand presented the new i-Pace in the form conceptual in the past motor show Los Angeles 2016, and makes scant days, he showed us new concept at the Geneva motor show, now with another color, to which we have also recently been seen on the streets of London.

as the prototype presented by Jaguar, little we can say, it is clear that it is broadly the conceptual model, to which has been added an attractive vinyl with patterns, with a format of color, more attractive than the classic camouflage black and white.

The only news that we can find to the naked eye are the front grille, somewhat less pronounced and the bumper, that with the camouflage seems less bulky. Of the rest, there seems to be more than the model already seen with some vinyl covering it, so only certain items appear to be different, as the mirrors side, something smaller.

The new Jaguar R-Pace will be built on a new platform, created exclusively for electric models, but from elements already existing in other models of the brand, as for example the substructures of the suspension. According to the company, the new I-Pace would be a battery pack of 90 kWh, which allows a range of 354 kilometres.

Would have two engines, located on each of the axles with a combined output of around 400 horses. In terms of performance, Jaguar announces an acceleration around the 4.0 seconds to reach 100 km/h. The variant of production should be presented before the end of the year, according to a statement from the brand, and would not enter the market until 2018.
