Jaguar Land Rover is showcasing its expanded vehicle lineups from both brands at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Jaguar and Land Rover will highlight electrified models from their largest model range to date, including the new all-electric Jaguar I-PACE performance SUV and the Land Rover brand’s new 2019 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport PHEV SUVs.
In line with the Jaguar Land Rover commitment to offer all-new or significantly redesigned vehicles with an electrified powertrain option from 2020, both brands will highlight their latest electrified models on the show stand. The Jaguar display will include the brand’s first all-electric performance SUV, the I-PACE – which features sleek design and everyday practicality – as well as a number of other models from its lineup including the brand’s E-PACE and F-PACE SVR SUVs; F-TYPE R convertible sports car; and the XJ50 marking 50 years of the flagship XJ luxury sedan.
Land Rover will also show two of its new electrified offerings, the 2019 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport PHEV – the first plug-in hybrid offerings from the brand. The Land Rover display includes a variety of other models from its range of premium SUVs, including the 2019 Land Rover Discovery, and World Car Design of the Year award-winning Range Rover Velar.
The Jaguar Land Rover interactive drive lounge – located in the South Hall of the convention center – will include the one-off futuristic Range Rover Sport featured in the new Hulu original drama series “The First,” as well as the Jaguar brand’s four-door supercar, the limited production, 200mph XE SV Project 8; allowing consumers a closer look at two of Jaguar Land Rover’s most unique vehicles. The lounge will also feature two custom wrapped Land Rover in a design created by artist James Godcrown, as well as the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY electric racing vehicle and the Jaguar brand’s most extreme performance vehicle, the Jaguar XE SV Project 8.
During the show, Jaguar Land Rover will host both on- and off-road consumer test drive opportunities. Just outside the convention center, consumers will have the opportunity to sample the Jaguar F-TYPE sportscar, E-PACE and F-PACE SUVs as well as limited opportunities behind the wheel of the I-PACE electric performance SUV on the streets of Los Angeles. The Land Rover Above and Beyond Tour includes a challenging off-road course featuring art installations by James Godcrown, where consumers will be able to test the full capability of the Land Rover vehicle lineup.
The Jaguar I-PACE midsize performance SUV joins the ‘PACE’ family of Jaguar SUVs and is the first battery electric vehicle (BEV) to be offered by the Jaguar brand. The vehicle’s bold proportions are a direct result of the advanced electric drivetrain and architecture that underpin the vehicle. The cab-forward profile of the I-PACE is a natural progression of the well-established design language of the Jaguar brand and retains key characteristics which make it immediately identifiable as the newest member of the Jaguar brand’s expanding ‘PACE’ family.
Featuring a 90kWh battery powering a pair of Jaguar-designed electric motors, the I-PACE delivers an EPA Estimated range of up to 234 miles and 0-60mph acceleration in as little as 4.5 seconds. I-PACE owners have the convenience of using either AC or DC power to charge their vehicle; with 0-80 percent charge achievable in approximately 40 minutes using a 100kW public fast charger, or just over 10 hours using a 230V/32amp charger.
The Jaguar I-PACE features standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Drivers can interact with key mobile apps through the vehicle’s central touchscreen in a manner similar to a smartphone, and certain functions can also be controlled via Voice Control7.
The Jaguar I-PACE is priced from $69,500 and on sale now in the US in three trim levels: S, SE and HSE, with an additional First Edition model available for the first year only – each featuring all-wheel drive, four-corner air suspension, panoramic glass roof, and the new Jaguar InControl® Touch Pro Duo™ infotainment system standard.
With the addition of the all-electric I-PACE, the Jaguar lineup expands to seven models for the first time in the brand’s storied history, while new model derivatives like the Jaguar F-PACE SVR and XF Sportbrake Prestige diversify the portfolio offering customers with greater choice.
2019 RANGE ROVER AND RANGE ROVER SPORT PHEV
The 2019 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport PHEV features the first Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) powertrain from Jaguar Land Rover.
The new PHEV P400e powertrain combines an advanced 296hp (221kW) turbocharged four-cylinder Ingenium gasoline engine with a 114hp (105kW) electric motor. The new drivetrain is powered by an advanced 13.1kWh lithium-ion battery giving a total available power output of 398hp (297kW) from the permanent four wheel drive (4WD) system. Together they propel the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport from 0-60mph in 6.4 and 6.3 seconds respectively, and to a top speed of 137mph. With an impressive 472 lb-ft of torque, the PHEV powertrain mixes dynamic and sustainable performance with traditional Range Rover capability, comfort and refinement, both on- and off-road.
The two PHEV models can be operated in two driving modes: Parallel Hybrid mode, which is the default driving mode, combining gasoline and electric drive; or EV (Electric Vehicle) mode, enabling the vehicle to run solely using the energy stored in the battery, the ideal solution for zero emission journeys.
The 2019 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport PHEV also feature the latest available connectivity features, including the Land Rover InControl® Touch™ Pro Duo infotainment system, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and voice recognition.
