Car manufacturers claim certain specs and statistics for their cars that don’t stand up to the standards of a real-world test — because they are often tested in an ideal environment — real-world testing is done by consumers in a vast variety of situations and environments.
Jaguar I-Pace landed in the United States for the first time at the 2018 New York Auto Show and is considered by many as the only legit competitor to Tesla vehicles in terms of design, engineering, and performance.
The Jaguar I-Pace is getting good reviews from major car reviewing outlets like Motor Trend and Top-Gear (review video below). All in all the new all-electric CUV from Jag is a nice addition to the EV world where Tesla is currently ‘the king’.
With a 90 kWh battery-pack and ~400 hp, this electric beast recently gave tough time to even a Tesla Model X P100D on the drag-strip.
So we were talking about the real-world tests, EV community legend and winner of Two 2020 Tesla Roadsters Mr. Bjørn Nyland stretched a Jaguar I-Pace to a max-speed of 208 km/h or ~125 mph on the German Autobahn and the test results are not less than interesting.
Jaguar I-Pace is very stable at high speeds as we can see in the above video, electric-vehicles benefit from a low center-of-gravity due to the heavy battery-pack planted in the floor and the I-Pace is no exception.
Stability on high speeds is a great benefit for highway travelers who want to reach their destination fast and safe — with 298 miles (~480 km) of range Jaguar claims that their electric SUV can travel from London to Paris on a single charge.
As the test was taken at night, we can see that I-Pace’s adaptive LED headlamps are also performing well and giving a clear vision ahead for the driver.
Let’s see what the famous British car show ‘Top Gear’ thinks of the Britain based electric car from Jaguar.
