All-Electric Jaguar I-PACE’s Cold-Weather Tests Bode Well for Canada

It goes on sale later this year By ,

Excited about the upcoming launch of the Jaguar I-PACE yet? Sure, this new all-electric crossover won’t fit the budget of most people, but Canadians who plan on buying one will be reassured by the fact that it has been rigorously tested across extremes of terrain and temperature at the Jaguar Land Rover cold-weather test facility in Arjeplog, Sweden, sometimes at temperatures as low as -40 degrees.

While plugged into power, customers will be able to prepare the car’s battery and cabin temperature ahead of a journey without tapping into the battery’s range. Pre-conditioning the car ensures maximum range, performance and comfort whether temperatures are freezing cold or extremely hot.  Setting up preferred charging times and pre-conditioning schedules can be done from either the on-board Jaguar InControl system or the Jaguar InControl Remote smartphone app.

“Not only will the I-PACE charge quickly enough for our customers to carry out their everyday lives, it will offer powerful and precise performance in a variety of conditions and climactic extremes. Allied with the versatile credentials of our celebrated PACE family, this will be an electric performance SUV like no other.”

- Ian Hoban, Jaguar Vehicle Line Director

The Jaguar I-PACE will support rapid charging (from 0-80% in approximately 45 minutes) and promises to combine sports car performance with SUV practicality. 

Don’t miss the global reveal of the new Jaguar I-PACE on March 1, 2018, followed by its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show five days later. Auto123.com will bring you plenty more details at that time.
