Promising “an electric performance SUV like no other,” Jaguar’s all-electric I-Pace will deliver both rapid charging and performance when it goes on sale in the United Kingdom in March. That means 45-minute recharge times with sports-car like performance and utility-vehicle practicality. The I-Pace, which will premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland on March 6, will be billed as “the perfect every day car,” the company said in a pre-show statement, “whether on the school run, daily commute or coping with sub-zero temperatures.” The vehicle was tested across extremes of terrain at Jaguar Land Rover’s cold-weather test facility in Arjeplog, Sweden, at temperatures as low as -40 F.
