Jaguar I-PACE A Triple Winner In Road To The World Car Awards

The I-PACE received honors as the overall 2019 World Car of the Year, the 2019 World Green Car and the 2019 World Car Design of the Year.

The Jaguar I-PACE was a triple winner in the Road to the World Car Awards, which concluded with an April 17 ceremony and press conference that opened the New York International Auto Show.

The I-PACE received honors as the overall 2019 World Car of the Year, the 2019 World Green Car and the 2019 World Car Design of the Year.

This is the first time in the World Car Awards’ 15-year history that one car has achieved a win across three categories. It’s the second time in 15 years that one company has achieved a triple-win; Mercedes-Benz previously attained the honor in 2015.

This year marks the third consecutive Design win for Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) and the fifth time overall JLR has won the World Car Design of the Year award. The automaker won the award in 2018 (Range Rover Velar), in 2017 (Jaguar F-PACE), in 2012 (Range Rover Evoque) and in 2013 (Jaguar F-Type).

“It is an honor that the Jaguar I-PACE has received these three accolades from the prestigious World Car jurors,” said Ralf Speth, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover. “We started with an ideal, to move towards our Destination Zero vision – zero emissions, zero accidents and zero congestion. I-PACE is our first step to achieving this, and it was conceived when EVs were little more than a niche choice. So we started from a clean sheet of paper to create a new benchmark – the world’s best premium electric vehicle, and a true Jaguar driver’s car.”

Designed and developed in the United Kingdom, the zero-emissions I-PACE is attracting customers worldwide, according to the company, and for many it will be their first electric vehicle and their first Jaguar. To date, more than 11,000 customers in more than 60 countries have taken delivery.

“Designing Jaguar cars is probably the best job in the world, and I can honestly say that no other project I’ve worked on has been as rewarding as I-PACE,” said Ian Callum, Jaguar director of design, who was in New York to accept the awards. “Electric vehicles offer designers unprecedented freedom to rethink the proportions, the profile and the packaging, and it’s an opportunity that my team has exploited in full. Winning the 2019 World Car Design of the Year award, as well as World Car of the Year and World Green Car, is true recognition for their achievements.”

I-PACE has a 90-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery and delivers a range of up to 292 miles (WLTP cycle), according to the company.
