Jaguar to offer five-year warranty on I-Pace SUV
Five-year/200,000km warranty for I-Pace EV resets Jaguar standard
22 Aug 2018
JAGUAR Australia has confirmed that the I-Pace SUV, its first battery-electric model, will come with a five-year/200,000km warranty when it launches in November.
The I-Pace will also be offered with an eight-year/160,000km guarantee for its lithium-ion battery pack, as well as five years of capped-price servicing and roadside assistance.
As such, the I-Pace outpaces its traditional Jaguar siblings – including the best-selling E-Pace and F-Pace SUVs – which are covered by a three-year/100,000km agreement with only three years of capped-price servicing and roadside assistance.
Comparatively, the I-Pace’s main competitor, Tesla’s Model X, comes with an industry-leading eight-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty for its drive unit and lithium-ion battery pack, while electrical and mechanical defects are covered by an eight-year/160,000km guarantee.
When the I-Pace was revealed in production form at the Geneva motor show in March this year, Jaguar announced it would be offered with only a three-year/100,000km agreement. The warranty for its lithium-ion battery pack has not changed, however.
As previously reported, the four-variant I-Pace line-up kicks off from $119,000 before on-road costs for the entry-level S, rising to $130,200 for the mid-range SE and $140,800 for the flagship HSE. A First Edition variant will be available for the first year of production, priced from $159,700.
The I-Pace is motivated by two electric motors mounted on opposing axles that provide all-wheel-drive traction via an automatic transmission.
Total system outputs are 294kW of power and 696Nm of torque, enabling a sprint from standstill to 100km/h in 4.8 seconds while on the way to a top speed of 200km/h.
The 90kWh lithium-ion battery pack offers up to 480 kilometres of driving range under the new WLTP regulations, while power consumption varies up to 21.2kWh per 100km.
Charging the I-Pace from empty to 80 per cent takes about 40 minutes when a 100kW DC fast charger is used, while a 7kW AC regular charger requires more than ten hours to achieve the same result.
The underfloor placement of the electric motors and lithium-ion battery pack allows for additional interior storage, including a 10.5L central bin and 656L of cargo capacity – or 1453L when the rear seats are folded flat.
