Jaguar reveals I-Pace Race eTaxi for the Nürburgring

Jaguar has added a new vehicle to its Nurburgring Race Taxi fleet, in the form of its all-electric I-Pace crossover.

Jaguar is confident the I-Pace's 400PS (294kW)/696Nm dual-motor electric drive system "will be able to cope with any conditions the circuit known as the ‘Green Hell’ has to offer".
