It is the boldest of bold moves from Jaguar: an all-electric SUV, the first credible rival to Tesla’s premium EV dominance, a car that beats its German rivals to market, and a radical piece of design. The I-Pace signals the start of something big, that mainstream manufacturers, not just Silicon Valley start-ups or BMW, are prepared to invest properly in building new-from-the-ground-up electric cars you actually want to own, and might be able to afford.

The EQC would have paired two electric motors with a lithium-ion battery. A one-speed direct-drive transmission was used to power to all four wheels. This powertrain would have provided a total output of 402 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque. We never had the chance to test the EQC, but Mercedes-Benz estimated that it would have made the sprint from zero to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds. That would have put it behind its key rival in this segment, the Tesla Model X. Tesla claims a zero-to-60-mph time of 4.4 seconds for the Long Range model and 2.7 seconds for the high-performance variant with Ludicrous mode engaged.
Battery Capacity – 80 kWh
