Jaguar I-Pace debut confirmed for March 1, completes winter tests (video)

The I-PACE will be fully-unveiled on March 1 with a live stream that kicks off at 6pm United Kingdom time.

The Jaguar I-Pace has been engineered without compromise to deliver a brilliant package, long-distance range, fast charging times and exhilarating performance. On March 6, the crossover will make its first public appearance at the Geneva Motor Show.

These photos serve as proof that the Jaguar I-Pace has been tested in temperatures as low as -40°F at the Jaguar Land Rover cold weather test facility in Arjeplog, Sweden.

Jaguar has yet to reveal all of the details, but the initial concept touted a 220-mile range and 400 horsepower, but that may have also changed since the last update.

That's why Jaguar has developed a pre-conditioning system for the I-Pace that ensures it delivers its maximum range, performance and comfort whether temperatures are freezing cold or extremely hot. Here, temperatures reached as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit.

"Customers will be able to use mains power to prepare the car's battery and cabin temperature ahead of a journey", said Jaguar. No word on pricing at this stage, but we should find out all the spec and performance details ahead of the Geneva Motor Show.

What is likely to be sold as the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace will be unveiled in its final production trim on Thursday, March 1.

Aimed at taking on the likes of Tesla's Model X as well as petrol-powered SUVs like the Audi Q7, Jaguar promises a range of up to 310 miles, and batteries capable of recharging to 80% capacity in 45 minutes. Capable of charging in less than 45 minutes* and with sports auto performance and SUV practicality, the I-PACE will be the ideal every day vehicle - whether on the school run, daily commute or even coping with sub-zero temperatures. 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.

With supercar looks, sports auto performance and SUV space all in one electric package, Jaguar promises to rip up the rule book when it comes to what drivers expect from an electric vehicle.
