The I-Pace is Jaguar's first all-electric vehicle and a completely independent model.

Its specs are impressive: a combined system output of 294kW and maximum torque of 696Nm.

It can also fly from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds.

Driven: 2019 Jaguar I-Pace EV400 SE AWD

Earlier this year, Wheels24's Sean Parker drove the new Jaguar i-Pace when it arrived here locally. This is what he had to say:

"More than 400km range (when fully charged), 0-100km/h sprint time of 4.8 seconds, a network of charging points in and around the country's major hubs to switch off any fears of range anxiety: these are the headlines Jaguar screamed ahead of their new all-electric vehicle, the I-Pace, hitting the South African market.

"Yes, Jag took a huge gamble of creating a 'Power Highway' along major routes in Mzansi, fitted with 82 charging stations. The cost? An eye-watering R30-million. That's how much the automaker is investing to ensure that I-Pace owners and other EV owners aren't caught in the dark."
