Jaguar I-Pace brings electric performance to Monaco GP circuit

Jaguar has taken to the Monaco Grand Prix circuit to showcase the performance and handling of its first electric vehicle, the I-Pace.

Boasting 400 hp and 696 Nm from its twin electric motors, the I-Pace takes just 4.8 seconds to reach 100 km/h. Allying sweeping straights with tight twists and turns, Monaco’s iconic harbour layout was perfect for the performance SUV’s secret late-night test.

 
Launched on 1 March and available to order now, I-Pace has a state-of-the-art 90kWh Lithium-ion battery, with a total range of 480 km, and is capable of charging from 0-80 percent in 40 minutes (100kW DC).

The I-Pace has been developed with Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s FIA Formula E Championship expertise, and Jaguar has now created the world’s first production battery electric vehicle race series with a circuit-ready version of the I-Pace.

Starting at the end of 2018, to coincide with season five of Formula E, Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations will supply a full grid of up to 20 I-Pace eTrophy race cars for the unique series.
