Jaguar I-PACE covered by 5-year warranty in Australia

The all-new Jaguar I-PACE will arrive on the Australian market in November, and it has just been confirmed the all-electric crossover will be covered by an impressive five-year warranty.

Normally, showroom Jaguar models are covered by a three-year warranty plan but the local arm today has announced the I-PACE will stand ahead of the rest with extended coverage. The new model will also be backed with a five-year servicing plan and five years roadside assistance – also two years more than conventional models.

Being an electric vehicle featuring no internal combustion engine, the I-PACE’s battery system is covered by an exclusive warranty. This area of the vehicle will receive an eight-year/160,000km warranty. This will give buyers peace of mind, especially those jumping into an electric vehicle for the first time.

As previously reported, the I-PACE uses a 90kWh lithium-ion battery pack that provides 294kW of power and 696Nm of torque to all four wheels. Acceleration from 0-100km/h is taken care of in a swift 4.8 seconds, while the full-charge range is rated at 470km.

Jaguar Australia is offering three main trim lines, from the S, SE, to the top HSE like with other Jaguar Land Rover products, with a special First Edition model packing in some unique features for a limited time. Speaking of features, all come with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and a 10-inch touch-screen media interface as standard.

The I-PACE will enter the local market as the only mainstream electric premium crossover. Although, others are on the way. You’ve got the Audi e-tron, BMW iX3, and the Mercedes EQC on the horizon, as detailed in our top 10 best electric vehicles coming in 2019-2020 feature.

Buyers have been able to place orders for the I-PACE in Australia since June, but Jaguar says deliveries are scheduled to commence in November (previously penned in as October). Prices start from $119,000 for the base S, and go up to $159,700 for the top First Edition variant.
