All British Cars, the exclusive distributor of Jaguar vehicles in the Philippines, recently announced the arrival of one of the most highly decorated cars ever, the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE, in their new BGC Boutique Showroom.
The pure electric I-PACE is Jaguar’s Smartest Five-Seater Sports Car. It delivers power instantly; and unlike cars with engines and gearboxes that can only deliver around 70-75% of what the engine can produce at the wheels, the I-PACE delivers 97% of electric power at the wheels. Thanks to its instant and efficient powertrain, I-PACE produces 400 PS of power and 696 Nm of torque, capable of accelerating from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds – without emissions.
Similar to the best handling sports cars, the I-PACE keeps its weight between the wheels. The battery sits low between the axles and allows a near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution. Two electric motors deliver power to where maximum grip is available among all four wheels. The alloy and steel body was fashioned to maximize strength and safety without compromising the weight and was designed to maintain downforce as the vehicle increases speed.
The I-PACE is not only efficient on the road, but also extremely smart. Users can leave the charger plugged and set when the I-PACE will start charging. The I-PACE can also pre-condition the battery and cabin temperature prior to a planned departure. The thermal management system ensures that the battery is optimized for the journey. Moreover, the I-PACE can also update its software over the air. This allows users to always get the latest version of telematics and battery energy control software without having to visit the Jaguar service centers.
Powering the I-PACE is a 90-kW lithium-ion high-voltage battery. Charging from zero to full takes almost 13 hours using the bundled 7-kW charger. I-PACE is also capable of regenerative braking which allows it to harness energy during deceleration.
The battery comes with an eight-year, 160,000-kilometer, 70 percent health state warranty.
The I-PACE units coming to Manila will be future-proof and will be equipped with the latest upgrades. It will sport 11-kW onboard charger to allow faster charging in the future and the new Pivi Pro infotainment system, which is created to be as intuitive and easy to use as a smartphone.
Every I-PACE comes with a Type 2 Plug 7 kW wall charger. Installation costs are not included, and it may vary per household. Our supplier will be evaluating interested households if their homes are qualified for a charger before we even sell an I-PACE.
All British Cars is now accepting orders for the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE which comes at Php 7,590,000. Clients may also purchase an additional charger for their second homes or offices. A second charger costs Php 105,000 excluding installation.
Aside from adding the all-electric sports car to its roster, All British Cars is also expanding with their Jaguar Land Rover BGC Boutique Showroom.
