The Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV concept was firstly introduced at Geneva in March, but the production version will be revealed at Frankfurt Auto Show in September this year.
Ian Callum, Jaguar’s design chief, has previously said that the concept is around 80 per cent production ready in terms of styling. It means that the finished product will not be too different from the concept with a roomy cabin and short front and rear overhangs.

The car is able to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in around 4 seconds.

Concerning the batteries, it takes about 90 minutes for the I-Pace to get to 80% and it will be fully charged in about 2 hours from a 50kW DC charging point.

Weight is actually an issue since the I-Pace is expected to weigh around 2,100kg, according to car news from Auto Express.

Although the British car manufacturer hasn’t given us any pricing details, Auto Express reports that the Jaguar I-Pace will cost about 10-15 % more than an equivalent version of its F-Pace SUV.
