  • Jaguar plans to release its first fully-electric car, the I-Pace, in 2018.
  • The SUV will be able to achieve an 80% charge in around 45 minutes when using a 100kW charger.
  • It will also boast 400 horsepower, 516 pound-feet of torque, and the ability to go from 0-60 mph in about four seconds.

Jaguar is getting ready to release it’s first fully-electric vehicle, the I-Pace, this year. The SUV will allow Jaguar to compete with Tesla’s high-end electric SUV, the Model X, and get a head start on Mercedes-Benz, which plans to start making its fully-electric EQC SUV in 2019.

While Jaguar hasn’t announced a price yet, the I-Pace is expected to start at $76,400 and possibly run upwards of $100,000. That would put the SUV in the same range as the Model X, which starts at $79,500.

Jaguar announced it will unveil the I-Pace on March 1. Here’s what we know so far:

The I-Pace doesn’t look as bulky as the average SUV.

Jaguar designed the I-Pace to look more like a sports car than a typical SUV.

It will be able to charge quickly.

Jaguar says that the I-Pace will be able to achieve an 80% charge in around 45 minutes when using a 100kW charger.

It may not have the Model X’s range.

While the Model X can drive up to 295 miles per charge, Jaguar has only specified that the I-Pace will have a range of over 220 mile per charge.
