The premium electric vehicles market in Malaysia today welcomes yet another new model into the fold with the official launch of the Jaguar I-Pace. It is the first-ever EV release from the English brand who has previously announced that it is working to go fully electric by 2025.
Let’s dive straight into its performance: the I-Pace which has an all-wheel drive setup is equipped with two electric motors that deliver a combined output of 294kW (400PS) and 696Nm of torque. The new SUV can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 4.8 seconds although its maximum speed has been electronically limited to 200km/h.
When it comes to battery, I-Pace has been fitted with a 90kWh lithium-ion module which takes around 8.6 hours of charging time to go from 0% to 80% through the SUV’s onboard 11kW AC charger. Naturally, the charging time can be significantly reduced to under 40 minutes by hooking it up to a 100kW DC fast charger (DCFC).
As per the majority of new EVs that were launched in Malaysia, the I-Pace was equipped with a Type 2 port for AC charging and CCS2 for DCFC. The electric SUV can cover up to 470km according to the WLTP standard – more than enough to bring you from KL to Penang on a single charge.
Available in several colourways such as Aruba, Farallon Black, and Italian Racing Red, the I-Pace can be obtained in two variants including the Black LE which costs RM460,800 not inclusive of insurance. There is also the higher-end HSE variant that is priced at RM498,800 which brings together several upgrades including electronic air suspension, configurable Adaptive Dynamics, Meridian 3D Surround Sound System, enhanced cabin lighting, Ebony suede cloth headlining, and Windsor leather performance seats with 14-way electric control as well as heat and cooling capability.
The I-Pace is covered by a 5-year 150,000km warranty while the vehicle’s high voltage battery has its own 8-year 160,000km warranty. On top of that, owners will also be provided with a complimentary service package for 5 years or 102,000km, whichever comes first.
Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia is now giving away RM1,000 GO TO-U credit for customers that ordered I-Pace by 28 May 2023 which they can then use to pay for their DCFC sessions. If you are interested to have a closer look at the latest premium EV in the country, you can register your interest at Jaguar Malaysia’s official website in order to obtain an invite to the viewing event that happening tomorrow, 29 March over at Jaguar Land Rover showroom at Sime Darby Motors City in Ara Damansara.
