T he Foreword JAGUAR TECHNICAL DESIGN DIRECTOR DR WOLFGANG ZIEBART ON SEIZING THE RIGHT MOMENT IN TIME AND BEING BOLD ENOUGH TO LEAD A REVOLUTION In my job, there are moments that feel truly pivotal: a technical leap forward, a sudden design breakthrough or an ingenious take on a problem that begs for a solution. The launch of the New All-Electric Jaguar I-PACE is certainly one of these. A ground-breaking shift, it has allowed us to introduce the world’s most desirable electric vehicle. The time to do this is just right. As you will see in our infographic on page 24, we stand on the brink of an electric revolution, with technology having reached a level of maturity that enables us to fulfil a wide range of mobility needs. Batteries like those in the I-PACE are now capable of delivering up to 292 miles* of zero tailpipe emissions driving on a single charge and a growing network of rapid charging facilities means this can be extended in minutes. There is no compromise in performance either. Electric motors can now deliver the same thrills as combustion engines – with instant torque and even more responsive handling. What’s not to like? Vehicle design is also set to change significantly. Electric drivetrains require much less space than traditional ones, opening opportunities to create more efficient utilisation of space and enhanced comfort. One quick glance at the I-PACE will reveal just how powerful these new tools can be. As a vehicle designed for the roads of the future, it is a manifestation of advances in innovation and design that, until recently, we didn’t think were possible. Turn to page 30 for an exclusive insight into some of the groundbreaking work we have done at Jaguar to make all of this possible. The I-PACE was built from the ground up to embrace new possibilities. It will change our perception of what mobility means; a significant milestone that I am proud to have been part of. In any industry, disruption is hard to achieve. But it will only come to those who are bold enough to lead the way and choose the right moment. I am happy to say that for our industry, this moment belongs to Jaguar.

Range achieved will vary dependent on vehicle and battery condition, actual route and environment and driving style. See page 14 for I-PACE emissions and efficiency data.
