Jaguar I-Pace EV for Malaysia teased again; 400 PS dual-motor AWD with 480 km range to launch soon?

Jaguar Malaysia has posted a partial image of the I-Pace to its Instagram account, hinting at the Malaysian arrival of the brand’s first all-electric vehicle. There is however no firm indication of its arrival timeline, simply stating “the electrifying world of Jaguar awaits.”

Since its global debut, hints of its Malaysian market arrival have trickled through, from its first local website appearance in 2019, then more recently in October 2021 when a statement from Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia revealed that the company plans to introduce new modelsincluding the I-Pace – in the near future, the company said at the time.

Along the way, the I-Pace received a software update in December 2019 for increased range and optimised AWD driveline operation, followed not long after in June 2020 with trim and equipment revisions that brought the Pivi Pro cockpit with a 12.3-inch high-definition instrument cluster and a 10-inch touchscreen display along with exterior updates.

The I-Pace made its global debut in March 2018, bringing up to 480 km of range on the WLTP test cycle from a 90 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Two electric motors, one on each axle offer a combined output of 400 PS and 696 Nm of torque, enabling a 0-100 km/h sprint in 4.8 seconds.

In most recent form, the I-Pace comes with an 11 kW onboard charger as standard, which provides replenishment of 53 km of range per hour, or 8.6 hours to reach a full charge. With access to a DC fast charger, the I-Pace can take recharging at up to 100 kW, which will top up the battery at a rate of 125 km in 15 minutes.

Interior equipment for the I-Pace includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with support for pairing two smartphone at once, wireless charging tray and signal booster, along with cabin air ionisation with PM2.5 filtration.

    Is the LGBTQ population in Malaysia large enough to justify the increasingly widespread move to EVs? Normal folks prefer good old ICE cars.

    • Insane price even without excise duty. Insane road tax payment after the grace period. A general lack of infrastructure and indifference from most in the private sector.

      Good luck EV owners.

      To link LGBTQ to the switch to EV from ICE cars is the height of stupidity no one in history has attained .’Normal folks prefer good old ICE cars ‘ is what says or suggests that you do not see the oncoming trend and how it will affect the parts component market for ICE cars .

      This matter is global , not just in Malaysia .Unless you can say Malaysia is not apart of Earth , YOu are a freaky idiot who will in time pay 3 times to maintain and service your ICE car

      So go ahead , be ‘normal’ and get crushed financially by your ‘normal’ believes

        LOL ignorant beta male detected. Do more research on which demographic is the most ardent early adopters and ferocious supporters of this tree-hugging EV cult, and how it’s even become a part of their “Pride” identity.

          A lot of big words but literally says nothing
          Must be a politician wannabe

          In another word , if you still do not comprehend , a overly educated spoilt brat who cannot get to a certain financial level and therefore blames others for his inability to afford certain luxuries

          SMH

      EVs don’t really save the earth. It’s a part of woke agenda to soften the world. Google for LGBTQ and EVs and you’ll see the pattern.
