This is the new I-PACE Concept car which Jaguar want to launch in 2018. Guests of Jaguar were given a unique, live world premier, across continent, virtual reality look at the car using tech from HTC VIVE and Dell Precision.
This electric car will be a cross between an SUV looking sports car. It has a 90kWh battery which has a range of 500km. Its 0 to 60 mph time will be around 4 seconds thanks to its twin electric motors front and rear that produce 700Nm of torque and 400PS.
If you use the rapid charging a full charge will take just over 2 hours.
But never mind all of this……
Take a look at its body shape. I will not get too excited just yet because it is a concept car after all, but when I think back to previous Jaguar concept cars (XF, X-Pace) they do stay quite true to their design concept.
Inside the I-PACE Concept car looks like a work of art. If they produce a dashboard like this it would win awards. How cool.

Ian Callum, Director of Design, said:
“The I-PACE Concept represents the next generation of electric vehicle design. It’s a dramatic, future-facing cab-forward design with a beautiful interior – the product of authentic Jaguar DNA, electric technology and contemporary craftsmanship.
“Our virtual reality reveal today has pushed technology boundaries as well, and captures the hi-tech essence of the concept car. We only have one concept car and it is in LA for the reveal. For the first time, VR has allowed us share it across the globe in the most immersive way possible.”
