The Los Angeles Auto Show (18th to 27th November) imminent and Jaguar will present the first all-electric vehicle of brand 2016 on one of the last major trade fairs. Not only the car should be particularly, the kind of idea stands out from the usual procedure.
The concept vehicle of the British answers to the name "I-Pace" and will be a purely electric SUV. Optically especially stands out "cab forward" design from the crowd, where the passengers much further forward sit than usual for a car with an engine. With a wheelbase of less than three meters and a length of 4.70 meters is only a few centimetres shorter than the Jaguar SUV F pace I pace. The wheelbase is slightly larger in the new E-Jaguar.
The performance data that specifies Jaguar for the study, are impressive: in four seconds to go from standstill to 100 and the 90-kWh battery developed in-house to supplying enough electricity for 500 kilometers non-stop. For driving two electric motors provide one each on the front and on the rear axle together on converted 400 HP and 700 Newton metres. The same torque is available also in the strongest series Jaguar on the F-type SVR. Together with the the batteries low centre of gravity, a source of joy could be also lateral dynamic I pace.
Car will be presented within the framework of the Los Angeles show I-pace, whose production version to come in 2018 on the market. Here, the manufacturer uses virtual reality on a very special form of presentation. With the help of always improving VR glasses can guests directly into the I space "hineinbeamen" and to watch how the SUV around them is established or how it drives you through spectacular scenery. Particularly elaborate here? Jaguar held at the same time two events in Los Angeles and London. Guests can communicate with each other across the pond across through the glasses and the Exchange I pace. We will increasingly see these techniques in the future surely at some point in the local car dealer. (mf)
