Jaguar also offers an eight-year battery warranty, while the I-Pace has lengthy service intervals of every two years, or 21,000 miles.

With an electric motor at each axle meaning the I-Pace is all-wheel drive, the thing offers 294kW and 696Nm of torque...instantly.

Capable of 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds, the I-Pace has a range of up to 480km (on full charge), and is propelled by two permanent magnet synchronous electric motors.

A 7kW wall charger will fully rejuvenate the I-Pace in 10 hours - making it a great option for overnight fill-ups. There is an optional air suspension and flawless 50:50 weight distribution thanks to the placement of the battery.

In a live webcast from its manufacturing facility in Graz, Austria, Jaguar today revealed the highly anticipated production version of the I-PACE electric crossover.

Clever design has freed up impressive interior space: there's 890mm of rear legroom (along with a flat floor thanks to the lack of a transmission tunnel) and a 656-litre boot that can be extended to 1,453 litres by folding the seats down.

The smart satellite navigation installed calculates the most efficient route for the vehicle so that the electric power can last longer.

The Jaguar I-Pace is available to order now, with prices starting from £63,495 in the United Kingdom (around US$87,500) before any government incentives are applied. The vehicle was revealed online and will have its first public appearance at the Geneva motor show from March 6. Like Teslas, the Jaguar will receive over-the-air software updates - a first for the British company.

It's no surprise that it would take an established player like Jaguar to find the blend of electric performance with style.

With all that in mind, the I-Pace isn't going to be everything for everyone.

The I-PACE also makes use of the Alexa voice control service and comes with advanced technology which includes automated software updates and a predictive Artificial Intelligence system which can configure the vehicle to an individual's preferences as they approach the auto.

The I-PACE also introduces a new MMI system for Jaguar.

Available to order now, it will be priced from £63,495 in the United Kingdom (excluding government incentives). The debuting Touch Pro Duo infotainment system includes a navigation system directly focused on EVs, assessing such aspects of the planned route as hills and recalling previous journeys to calculate a personalised range and charging status to provide highly accurate information. This will give the I-PACE a range of up to 298 miles (WLTP cycle). Owners will be able to integrate their Alexa devices with the vehicle, so they can ask for information like charge levels before they have to drive.
