The all-electric Jaguar I-PACE has been voted ‘Car of the Year’ at the European Car of the Year Awards 2019. I PACE is engineered to take full advantage of its electric powertrain and bespoke aluminium architecture, offering sports car performance and SUV practicality, stated the company. The European Car of the Year jury comprises 60 motoring journalists from 23 countries, and the award recognises technical innovation, design, performance, efficiency and value for money.
Designed and developed in the UK, the Jaguar I-PACE has had profound sales success globally, with more than 8,000 customer deliveries to date out of which 75 per cent of them have been in Europe. Customers can use Jaguar’s public charging service that can be accessed via a dedicated app or using an RFID key. With tailor-made charging packages and tariffs compiled into a simple monthly bill, it gives I-PACE customers access to more than 85,000 charging points throughout Europe.
Prof. Dr. Ralf Speth, Chief Executive Officer, Jaguar Land Rover, said I-PACE is the most technologically advanced battery electric vehicle. Winning European Car of the Year is an honour and real recognition of what its world-class team has delivered.
