Jaguar has revealed the 2023 I-Pace EV, which will offer customers subtle enhancements, improved specifications, and a new 400 Sport model.

These improvements accompany changes in the electric SUV’s design, including a smooth front grille that bears a new color as well as the new black and silver Jaguar badge. Multiple areas of the vehicle that previously adopted the Gloss Black color will now use the customer’s chosen body color – including the front bumper finishers, lower door finishers, and rear diffuser. Customers choosing the new 400 Sport variant benefit further from electronically adjustable performance seats with heating and cooling functions.

All models in the new I-Pace range offer the same set of performance specifications. Here, the vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and has a maximum speed of 124 mph (200 km/h), while offering 394 hp (293 kW) and 513 lb-ft (695 Nm). Internally, a 90-kWh lithium-ion battery enables the vehicle’s maximum range of 292 miles (470 km). The 400 Sport variant adds air suspension with Adaptive Dynamics electronically-controlled damping, enhancing the driving experience with improved ride and handling. When recharging the vehicle at a 100 kW DC public charging point, up to 78 miles (127 km) of range can be replenished in 15 minutes.

On a three-phase 11-kW AC wall box, 33 miles (53 km) of range can be added every hour, with a full charge taking less than 9 hours. A single-phase 7-kW wall box replenishes 22 miles (35 km) per hour, with the vehicle’s battery fully recharged in under 13 hours. For its customers using AC to charge the EV, Jaguar offers a Low Cost Hours Only feature – allowing them to set start and stop times for charging that match their tariffs. When using AC or DC, customers can set charging to stop once the battery level reaches a specific figure, and offers preconditioning capabilities that can be set through the touchscreen or the Jaguar Remote mobile app.

Inside, the OEM’s Pivi Pro infotainment system offers wireless compatibility with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The system further provides integrated apps and services, such as Alexa voice control, Spotify, and what3words navigation. These features and other vehicle systems benefit throughout the vehicle lifecycle from over-the-air software updates.

Jaguar confirmed that the 2023 I-Pace will start from £69,995 – rising to £79,995 for the UK-exclusive 400 Sport variant – and begin deliveries in May 2023.
