The Jaguar I-PACE Sweeps the World Car of the Year Titles


The Jaguar I-PACE swept the World Car titles—receiving the World Car of the Year, World Green Car of the Year, and World Car Design of the Year—the first vehicle to do so in the 15-year history of the awards.

The panel, made up of 86 motoring journalists from 24 countries affirms the quality of Jaguar’s first-ever battery electric vehicle.

The I-PACE’s dramatic, cab-forward profile, short overhangs and taut, muscular haunches give it a sense of drama which set it apart from other SUVs. The spacious interior, enabled by the bespoke electric vehicle architecture, is finished with beautiful premium details and exacting Jaguar craftsmanship.

I-PACE has a state-of-the-art 90kWh lithium-ion battery and delivers a range of up to 470 kilometers. It’s capable of charging from 0-80 percent in just 40 minutes (100kW DC), or takes just over ten hours to achieve the same state of charge when using a domestic outlet (7kW AC), ideal for overnight home-charging.

A suite of smart, range-optimizing technologies also include a battery pre-conditioning system: when plugged in the I-PACE will automatically raise (or lower) the temperature of its battery to maximize range ahead of driving away.

The I-PACE has also earned a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. The body structure provides high levels of occupant protection, and is complemented by technologies designed to protect other road users and pedestrians, including a deployable bonnet and autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection.

The I-PACE has received 62 awards since it was revealed little more than a year ago, including European Car of the Year, German, Norwegian, and UK Car of the Year.
