Recently Jaguar has unveiled a new full electric model: the I-pace concept, it was very original and had an aggressive look, but as always X- TOMI Design added more character and style to the electric concept and he call it: Jaguar I-Pace R-S Concept.
The Jaguar I-pace production model will be available from second half of 2018, and it has a lot of potential, the electric motor will have an equivalent output power of 400hp and the I-Pace can achieve 0‑60 mph in around 4 seconds, the range will be around 220 miles on a single charge, not bad for an electric vehicle.
But as we mentioned above X-TOMI Design are always looking to maximize the look and the style of any production car, that’s why he decided to render the Jaguar I-Pace in the RS trim.
The work of X-TOMI Design is focused on the aesthetic are only, to make the Jag more appealing, so a new body work kit was added (virtually of course) including modified bumper, new bigger grille, side air inlet, bigger wheels, new rear wing, and of course to make all these stuff work together the Jaguar I-Pace RS will need new suspension, to follow the sporty character of the Electric Jag.
We don’t know the price yet from the Jaguar I-Pace but as always with electric vehicle it will be slightly high, and I want to give you my own opinion in electric vehicles: there is two major cons to these type of vehicles: price and charging time, for the price I don’t know why these E vehicle still expansive compared to the combustion cars, the lithium-ion battery technology which almost all electric vehicles are equipped with is available in the mainstream market and a good volume is achieved by the battery companies, so why the price still high? The second cons is the charging time, if the charging time for any electric vehicle could be around 10 min, I think a lot of drivers could think about this E vehicle.
Any way it was my proper (humble) opinion, hope we can see more affordable electric vehicle and more charging station therefore we can reduce emission and protect the climate.
