Need a car that turns down stress levels so low that even a Monday morning commute will have you looking forward to the battle ahead?

Well, here is a new contender for spreading joy and happiness along every mile of the journey - Jaguar's all-electric I-PACE.

Driving Experience

Here is a car that will take you in near silence on a trip of more than 200 miles without the fear you will run out of electric juice - and do it all with such delicious lack of drama, you will smile at the Jaguar's charms.

The I-PACE is blindingly quick, making overtaking manoeuvres much easier and a sure fire way of keeping down those stress levels.

You will put costs far from your thought the first time you press the I-PACE's accelerator pedal with some enthusiasm. This car - all 2.2 tonnes of it - sets off from rest at incredibly fast speeds. It also takes corners surprisingly well without leaning over.


The Jaguar I-PACE will also cost much less to run than a traditional fuel engine. Journeys of more than about 220 miles will mean a charge along the way, which could mean a 40-minute break at a fast charger.


Electronic air suspension made the best of our awful roads, but another add-on in the shape of enormous 22" alloy wheels might have looked the business, but could be felt working hard too much of the time.

While your chill mitts are warming, there is time to take in a cabin that mixes modern touch screens with just enough sensible old world controls to keep stress levels down.

Add the universally liked exterior design and handsome interior trim - standard on this high level I-PACE - and there is a properly upmarket feel to every mile travelled.


Jaguar's I-PACE HSE delivers an attractive option for lowering your environmental impact whilst still providing a multitude of features for you to enjoy.

The I-PACE HSE offers drivers an electrifying, luxurious experience, with a refined design and plenty of top-level technology.
