Jaguar unveils its I-PACE black edition
There is no denying that the Jaguar I-PACE has been a huge success, it has received global recognition and won multiple awards worldwide. The I-PACE has also become one of the first electric SUVs to brace our local market. Now after much time Jaguar has finally given this all-electric performance SUV the appeal it deserves, introducing the all-new I-PACE Black.
This exclusive new addition to the I-PACE range will benefit from a range of enhanced features which include a panoramic roof, privacy glass and a Black Pack comprising Gloss Black finish applied to the door mirror caps as well as the grille, grille surround, side window surrounds and rear badges.
This clean, contemporary look is further complimented by the gloss black finish of the 20-inch five-spoke wheels. The I-PACE Black will be available in the full range of colours, including Aruba and Farallon Pearl black premium metallic paints. The I-PACE Black cabin will feature Ebony leather sports seats and Gloss Black trim finishers complemented by an Ebony headliner.
The I-PACE Black offers a wealth of technology designed to make every journey simpler and more enjoyable. The Pivi Pro infotainment system is ready to go by the time you’re in the driving seat and is as intuitive to use as your smartphone. Pivi Pro has an embedded SIM for music streaming and a Smartphone Pack with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard.
To make smartphone connectivity even more convenient and seamless, wireless versions of both will soon become available to customers in a software-over-the-air (SOTA) update – the I-PACE's SOTA capability meaning its infotainment and vehicle systems can always be updated remotely and seamlessly. In addition, the I-PACE can connect two phones simultaneously, and an optional wireless device charging pad beneath the ‘floating’ centre console features a signal booster to improve network reception and Wi-Fi.
With a focus on air quality, occupant comfort and well-being are prioritised, with cabin air ionisation now featuring PM2.5 filtration to capture ultrafine airborne particles and allergens. The I-PACE can even filter its cabin air before you begin a journey.
The ClearSight digital rear-view mirror gives the driver an unobstructed view of the road behind, even with rear-seat passengers or a fully loaded luggage compartment. It uses a wide-angle, rear-facing camera linked to a screen behind the mirror: a switch allows the driver to choose between the standard view or the camera feed.
The Jaguar I-PACE Black is scheduled for South African introduction in the third quarter of 2021 with pricing to be announced closer to the time.
