Jaguar Demonstrates How I-Pace Electric Crossover Can RideOctober 25, 2018
Among some motorists, there is a perception that electric cars are rather afraid of water, so Jaguar decided to demonstrate how the I-Pace is able to move in water.
On the eve of Sydney, the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 sports event was held, during which the Land Rover Driving Challenge was held. As part of this event, participants demonstrated their ability to drive on an all-electric I-Pace crossover, and one of the tests was movement in the water.
According to the technical director of the brand Wolfgang Zibart, the depth of the ford for the electric crossover is 50 centimeters – this is more than the Subaru Outback and Jeep Cherokee. Judging by the presented video, movement on water for a crossover is quite possible without any consequences.
As the power unit uses a twin-engine layout with a total power of about 400 horsepower. A 90 kW-hour battery is used as an energy source. Acceleration to “hundreds” takes only 4.8 seconds, and the maximum speed is electronically limited to 200 km / h.
