The Jaguar I-Pace has been previewed once again, this time during cold weather testing in Arjeplog, Sweden, ahead of its production premiere on March 1.

Set to debut at the Geneva motor show, Jaguar has decided to demonstrate the I-Pace's ability to deal with the arctic conditions of nations like Sweden, with temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius in the region.

"Not only will the I-Pace charge quickly enough for our customers to carry out their everyday lives, it will offer powerful and precise performance in a variety of conditions and climactic extremes," said Ian Hoban, Jaguar vehicle line director.

"Allied with the versatile credentials of our celebrated Pace family, this will be an electric performance SUV like no other."

Jaguar has also confirmed the I-Pace will feature a fast-charging system from launch, which is capable of charging from zero to 80 per cent capacity in "less than 45 minutes" – with the help of a 100kW DC charger.

The all-electric I-Pace is set to go on sale in the UK from March 1.


Jaguar's local product public affairs manager, James Scrimshaw, told CarAdvice the I-Pace is currently scheduled to go on sale in Australia around October 2018.

Further details around pricing and specifications for our market will likely come around the Geneva show, and in the lead-up to the I-Pace's local launch. Stay tuned.
