Charging confirmed for new all-electric I-Pace

Jaguar I Pace winter testing

While we still have about a month until it debuts, Jaguar has released a batch of new photos of the electric SUV being tested in the freezing cold.

Unsurprisingly, the feedback on how the i-Pace copes with ice and properly low temperatures is positive, and if the electric SUV can cope with -40C it should be just fine most other places.

Near-production prototypes of the zero-emissions crossover had to undergo rigorous cold weather testing near Jaguar Land Rover's facility located in Arjeplog, Sweden. The I-PACE will be Jaguar's first all-electric production vehicle, and has recently been undergoing Arctic testing to make sure its performance is up to scratch in ice and snow.

One challenge with EVs in cold weather is the temperature of the battery. Batteries in particular aren't a fan of being cooled down: it can have a significant impact on overall range, indeed.

Jaguar's all-electric I-PACE will promise both rapid charging and rapid performance when it goes on sale on 1 March.

It's an impressively short time.

Jaguar's new electric SUV, the I-Pace, will officially break cover in production form March 1, at an online event scheduled just ahead of a formal unveiling on March 6 at the Geneva motor show. This is also greater charging capability than Jaguar claimed when the concept was revealed, which promised an 80 percent charge in two hours on a 50-kW fast charger.

The I-Pace is a fully electric crossover that's not to be confused with the soon-to-be-launched and conventionally-powered E-Pace in any way, the battery-powered I-Pace also boasting a sportier design and more upmarket positioning.

While the five seater won't compete directly with a Tesla Model X in the seven seat configuration, the cabin should be no less comfortable.

The system uses mains power to warm or cool the auto prior to the journey, so that the vehicle and battery are at their ideal operating temperature when you hop in. No word on pricing at this stage, but we should find out all the spec and performance details ahead of the Geneva Motor Show.
