Jaguar unveils new entry-level i-Pace

August 21, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The British automaker has unveiled a new version of its entry-level electric i-Pace in Germany. The model is called the Jaguar i-Pace EV320 SE and costs the same as the more powerful, existing EV400 variant. It seems strange, but there is an explanation for this.

The number in the Jaguar EV type designation refers to horsepower. That is, the EV320 has 80 hp. less than the existing EV400. I-Pace with 320 hp and 500 Nm accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 6.4 seconds, and the EV400 in 4.8 seconds. Unlike the entry-level Audi E-tron, the battery remains intact and allows both models to travel up to 470 kilometers on a single WLTP charge. Like the EV400 itself, the EV320 comes standard with an 11 kW three-phase charger.

The EV320 SE is currently only offered in Germany and costs exactly the same as the recently updated EV400 variant. It seems strange, but the explanation is in the SE prefix, which refers to the middle of the three trim levels, while the EV400 version comes as standard as the less equipped S. EV320 is available with 20-inch wheels, more advanced LED headlights and front seats adjustable in 14 directions.

German Jaguar dealers are asking 64,957 euros for any of these vehicles. In addition, buyers of both variants in Germany are entitled to a purchase bonus of 7,500 euros, because they fall under the category of cars worth up to 65 thousand euros.
