A Jaguar I-Pace SVR Will Happen, But The Question Is: When?
The Jaguar I-Pace has been around for some months now, and Jaguar is already set on sticking the SVR badge to its first-ever electric car. That’s right, the carmaker isn’t pondering its options or considering such a performance-oriented version - it will make it. The only thing that’s bothering us is there’s no word on when is Jaguar planning to deliver the said I-Pace SVR.
Next-gen Jaguar XJ Teased at 2020 Land Rover Defender Launch Event
Jaguar is certainly working on an all-new XJ flagship sedan model - we know this because the automaker teased its upcoming top tier three-box model back in 2018 and now it’s done it again, briefly, at the reveal event of the all-new Land Rover Defender. We didn’t get to see much, though, but it was enough to get us talking about the new big Jag, because it’s always been an interesting car and the automaker has some big formula changes planned for the next-gen model.

Cars That We Can’t Wait to See in 2019
What does the future behold? There are countless future classics ready to slide out from under the sheets of which they’ve been covered, and it’s all set to happen in 2019. There will be new EVs, new muscle cars, and a complete evolution of luxury cars. One of America’s most loved sports cars, the Chevy Corvette, is set move into a mid-engine configuration - something that’s been in the works for decades. With that said, we have a lot to be excited for, and this is a list of the models that we just can’t wait any longer for.
The Jaguar I-Pace fails emergency braking test
The Jaguar I-Pace is the first all-electric SUV from the legendary British manufacturer and, while it is filled with high-end technology to the brim, it seems to fall short in one important area: accident prevention. More precisely, it seems that the car’s automatic emergency braking system, or AEB, only hits the brakes when the car is running at an extremely low speed.
Norwegian publication Dinside 20 år gathered 29 cars (four others didn’t have AEB systems at all) to test their ability to stop at speed if an obstacle appears in front of them and the person behind the wheel does absolutely nothing. The publication tested all 25 cars that did have this safety feature which should, on paper, apply the brakes when it determines that the driver won’t take any sort of evasive action. However, the system inside the Jaguar I-Pace proved lackluster which is all the more intriguing considering the fact that it worked fine on the E-Pace.
Best Electric Cars of 2018
Electric vehicles are becoming more and more popular these days, and manufacturers are responding by pouring in the investment and releasing oodles of new models. As such, competition between EV’s is growing, and 2018 was no exception. But the question is, which of these machines is the “best”? To find out, we lined up the usual suspects up and looked at all the critical specs, including range-per-charge, battery capacity, charge times, interior space, interior tech, and more. Read on to see which EV came out on top!
The Jaguar I-Pace Will Deliver Subpar Range Compared to the Tesla Model X, Hyundai Kona, and Chevy Bolt
This was Jaguar’s time to shine; maybe even score a touchdown with no one else in sight. And still, Jaguar missed its target. Jaguar has released the EPA-estimated figures for the 2019 I-Pace, and the 234-mile range is a little less than what we had hoped for.
Mercedes-Benz EQC vs Jaguar I-Pace
Like most mainstream automakers, Mercedes has been working on an all-electric drivertrain for more than a decade now. However, the Germans joined the market relatively late, with its first production model, the B-Class Electric Drive, being introduced in 2014. Four years later and Mercedes has finally rolled out its first fully independent EV built on a stand-alone platform. It’s called the EQC, and it’s part of the company’s new EQ brand for electric vehicles.
The EQC joins a rather tight niche of all-electric crossovers, with competitors including the Tesla Model X, Jaguar I-Pace, and the upcoming BMW iX3. The Model X is already dominating the segment, but the I-Pace is also new to the market. With the EQC set to go on sale in 2019, it’s the right time to compare it against it’s most important rivals. This time around, we’re looking at its European counterpart, the Jaguar I-Pace. Let’s find out how the two compare in terms of design, technology, and drivetrain below.
Jaguar’s Hints of a Possible Hypercar Gives Us Hope That The C-X75 Could Still Happen
Jaguar Contemplates I-Pace SVR Tuning and Training-Based Performance Restrictions
Jaguar hasn’t officially confirmed the I-Pace SVR, but a recent interview with Autocar shows that the brand isn’t only considering it but is contemplating what type of performance it should deliver and just how much would be safe. In other words, 0-to-60 and top speed performance of the I-Pace SVR and future electric cars will be important, but they won’t necessarily be engineered with a supreme focus on these things.
Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Leave the Royal Wedding in Style with an Electric Jaguar E-Type
Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last few weeks, you’ve undoubtedly been inundated with coverage of the royal wedding. But don’t worry - we aren’t here to analyze Meghan’s dress or the contents of the goodie bags handed out to guests. No, we’d prefer to talk about that surprisingly quiet E-Type that whisked the happy couple off to the royal reception.
