It's been a long time coming, but the day has finally arrived. The production all-electric Jaguar I-Pace crossover has officially been revealed. If it looks familiar, that's because since we first saw the concept car back in 2016, we've seen the car testing, barely camouflaged, at the Nürburgring and elsewhere. We've also seen a hotter version called the I-Pace eTrophy, intended as a support racer for the Formula E electric championship series. Today, Jaguar has unveiled the final consumer I-Pace ahead of the Geneva Motor Show, and we're not surprised to see that it remains true to the original concept.

As we learned in the livestream of the I-Pace reveal, this electric Jaguar offers 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque. It'll do 0-60 mph in a brisk 4.5 seconds. With high and low regenerative braking settings, the driver can choose a more traditional driving feel, or opt for mostly one-pedal driving. Its 90-kWh battery pack offers up to 240 miles of driving range between charges. Jaguar says it can recharge to 80 percent in just 40 minutes on a 100-kW DC fast charger.

With two electric motors, one at the front and one at the rear, the I-Pace is all-wheel-drive, adjusting torque from front to rear as necessary. The vehicle boasts a low center of gravity, as well as a 50:50 weight distribution. Its standard air suspension with available Adaptive Dynamics improves ride and handling. It can also lower the I-Pace for better aerodynamics.

The I-Pace features the Touch Pro Duo infotainment interface shared with the Range Rover Velar. It will also feature an Amazon Alexa Skill to interact with the car, and over-the-air updates to keep the software current.

In addition to the unveiling, Jaguar is also opening up orders for the I-Pace today. Deliveries are expected in the second half of the year. United States pricing will be announced in Geneva.

The I-Pace is a harbinger of things to come. Last fall, the British automaker announced it would electrify all new models — and possibly even some old ones — beginning in 2020. In addition to pure EVs, this electrification strategy will include hybrids and plug-in hybrids.
