Jaguar Land Rover has unveiled its first all-electric Jaguar, the I-PACE, during a world premiere held at Magna International’s automotive production facility in Graz, Austria. The Jaguar I-PACE, a pure Battery Electric Vehicle, is the second Jaguar Land Rover model built by Magna, following the debut of the E-PACE in 2017.

According to Jaguar, the vehicle’s 90kWh battery is made up of high energy density lithium-ion pouch cells, with a state-of-the-art thermal management system to support longevity and periods of sustained maximum power. The battery is reported to provide a range of 480 km (298 miles) on one full charge.

The I‑PACE is propelled by two permanent magnet synchronous electric motors, similar to those found in the company’s I‑TYPE Formula E racing car, capable of generating 400PS and 696Nm of torque. According to the company, the vehicle reaches 100 km/h (60 mph) in 4.8 (4.5) seconds.

Magna is said to be the only contract manufacturer in the world with the ability to build vehicles with different propulsion systems at one plant and on one production line. In 2018, approximately 200,000 vehicles will be produced at the manufacturer’s Graz facility, comprising four different models for three automakers.
