I chose this vehicle strategically this month, as it is the perfect fit for our eco-friendly issue. This beautiful all-electric SUV may have the body of a small SUV, but let there be no mistake: for an all-electric vehicle, the acceleration is first in its class going f0-60 in 4.5 seconds. With it’s sleek body and smooth driving this vehicle did not disappoint.
Driving the I-PACE was seamless with its sports car-like agility and ease of braking by simply letting off the gas. Some of the convenient safety features include rear camera, 360 surround camera, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition and adaptive speed limiter. The Active Air Suspension of the I‑PACE automatically lowers the car by 0.4 inches when traveling at speeds in excess of 65 mph over extended periods of time.
The interior of the I-PACE was what you would expect of a Jaguar: luxurious comfort with Windsor leather seats including heated and cooled power front sport seats. It provides ultimate temperature comfort with a two-zone climate control. The top boasts a fixed panoramic rooftop with automatic tinting, allowing for an open feel including rear privacy glass. Modern conveniences include a mobile Wi-Fi hot spot, Sirius/XM, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and InControl Apps.
With limited driving experience in the all-electric car family, I would recommend this vehicle for its driving enjoyment, comfort, safety and eco-friendly nature.
