Thrill-seekers and fans of electric vehicles can now experience the sports car performance of the I‑PACE at the most demanding race circuit in the world with a professional driver behind the wheel. The zero-emissions model can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds thanks to its state-of-the-art 90kWh lithium-ion battery, which develops 294kW and 696Nm of torque.
The performance SUV will feel at home in all weathers around the 20.8km, 73-corner Nordschleife thanks to its dynamic handling and all-wheel drive; the zero-emissions I‑PACE – 2019 World Green Car of the Year – will be able to cope with any conditions the circuit known as the ‘Green Hell’ has to offer.
JAGUAR IS THE FIRST MANUFACTURER TO OFFER CUSTOMERS AN ALL-ELECTRIC RACE ETAXI EXPERIENCE AROUND THE EPIC NÜRBURGRING NORDSCHLEIFE.
The introduction of the first all-electric RACE eTAXI is another step in Jaguar’s electrification strategy as it enables more people to experience Jaguar’s award-winning I‑PACE first-hand.
Jaguar is no stranger to electric race cars, with the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team preparing for a fourth season in Formula E. Jaguar has also completed its inaugural season of the Jaguar I‑PACE eTROPHY, the first all-electric single-make competition of its kind in the world, which features a grid of close-to-production I‑PACE racers.
Since its launch in 2018, the Jaguar I‑PACE has won multiple awards including 2019 World Car of the Year, European Car of the Year and German Car of the Year.
