Leading car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover has launched its first electric car in India called I-PACE. In February this year, the company had announced that it would go all electric by 2025.

The Jaguar I-PACE has been launched at an ex-showroom price of ₹1.06 crore. The pricing includes a five year service package, five year road-side assistance package, 7.4 kW AC wall mounted charger and eight years or 160,000 kilometre battery warranty.

The I-PACE was launched globally in March 2018 and deliveries in Europe began by June 2018.

“Jaguar I-PACE is the first all-electric SUV that we’ve launched in India and it marks the beginning of our electrification journey. With our electrified products we look forward to playing a significant role in India’s electrification drive into the future. Jaguar I-PACE will appeal to people who look for and purchase the latest in technology and design, to express their personalities and stay ahead of the curve,” said Rohit Suri, president and managing director at Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd (JLRIL) in a statement.

Here’s a look at the first car in Jaguar’s electric journey.

The Jaguar I-PACE is powered by a 90 kWh battery, which translates to 294 kW power and 696 Nm torque. The 5-seater SUV can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 5 seconds – 4.8 seconds to be precise.

“The 90 kWh battery is positioned within the floor, between the axles, giving a low centre of gravity and near perfect weight distribution,” said the company.

Jaguar’s high-priced car comes at a time when India is still seeing its EV adoption catch up. And Jaguar’s MD believes that the car will fit right in with the EV’s growth trajectory in India.

“With the growing customer consciousness with regard to the environment, especially in cities, more OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) launching EVs and policy push by the government towards faster adoption of EVs, we expect exponential growth in EVs over the next 5-10 years in India,” Suri said.
