From luxurious sedans to powerful sports cars, Jaguar is known for crafting autos with performance at their core. This year, the automaker made its entrée into the all-electric world with the award-winning I-PACE. This midsize SUV comes equipped with two electric motors capable of delivering an impressive 234 miles of range without expelling any pollutants along the way.

The shift toward all-electric is a welcome one. New emission standards have forced automakers to rethink their manufacturing practices, and this advancement is their answer — an almost unthinkable achievement just years ago. These vehicles promise less maintenance, increased safety, cheaper running costs and a cleaner environment for all. And with the I-PACE, Jaguar has unveiled an all-electric luxury vehicle without rival.

Behind the steering wheel, the overall driving characteristics parallel that of a sports car. Given that there is no need for a standard transmission, 60 mph is effortlessly reached in just 4.5 seconds from a standstill. The SUV also adapts to current driving conditions with Active Air Suspension, making handling more predictable.

Inside, the aesthetic and comfort are second to none. With no engine taking up space up front, the I-PACE was designed with its first-and second-row seats positioned farther apart, allowing for extra legroom for all passengers as well as generous storage throughout. Similarly, the rear cargo room is impressively expansive. With the added bonus of a large panoramic sunroof up top, the SUV feels exceptionally spacious, making it ideal for daily driving. With the I-PACE, Jaguar has redefined all-electric.
