Jaguar I-Pace EV coming to Malaysia, here’s what to expect

The electric vehicles market in Malaysia is growing at a fast pace with the government initiatives of temporarily removing import duties and road tax on electric cars driven by the need to curb vehicular emissions. While there are still very few affordable EV options in the local market, the luxury SUV segment is somewhat offering a whole lot of choices to select from. These include the BMW iX3, Kia EV6, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Mercedes-Benz EQA, Mercedes Benz EQB, Volvo XC40 Recharge, and more. Well, a new model will soon be added to this list, which is called the Jaguar I-Pace.


  • When will the Jaguar I-Pace launch in Malaysia?

    Jaguar Malaysia has recently posted a teaser of the I-Pace on its social media handle, which hints at the soon arrival of the EV.

    Equipped with a 90-kWh Lithium-ion battery pack, the Jaguar I-Pace offers a range of 470 kilometres on the WLTP cycle.

    Globally introduced in 2018, the Jaguar I-Pace EV created a lot of buzz in the market due to its unique silhouette signifying that it is not based on an ICE-powered car. It has gained record sales numbers in other countries and grabbed multiple awards like World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year, and the World Green Car in 2019. Thus, the news of the I-Pace’s arrival in Malaysia is surely a matter of excitement.

    Jaguar Malaysia recently posted a teaser of the I-Pace on its social media handle with a caption “the electrifying world of Jaguar awaits.” Well, this is not the first time the automaker spilled the beans on the EV’s arrival as the car made its first appearance on Jaguar Malaysia’s official website back in 2019, followed by the automaker’s statement of introducing the EV in the near future. However, the exact timeline of the EV is still undisclosed.

    So, while we wait for Jaguar Malaysia to bring the I-Pace to the local shores, let’s discuss the specifications the EV is expected to bring to the table.


    The upcoming Jaguar I-Pace features an elegant and highly aerodynamic exterior with an impressive drag coefficient of 0,29Cd. With a distinctive silhouette, dramatic bonnet scoop, a flowing waistline, and signature rear haunches, the EV turns the heads where it goes. Part of the equipment kit is a bold grille, LED headlights (with optional Matrix LED units), a panoramic glass roof, LED tail lights, hands-free boot release, and a range of wheels ranging from 18- to 22-inch in size.


    The interior of the Jaguar I-Pace offers a classic balance of luxury craftsmanship and sports car. The clean and uncluttered cabin has tactile features and sweeping lines along with abundant space for comfortable seating. There are different sorts of handcrafted touches and rich finishings reaffirming the cabin’s luxury feel. A floating central console is located at the heart of the cabin. 

    We expect the Malaysian-spec EV to be loaded with a bag full of integrated technologies, just like the global version. It is likely to get the following tech goodies –

    • 12.3-inch instrument cluster with inbuilt 3D navigation
    • 10-inch touchscreen display unit paired with Pivi Pro infotainment suite
    • Heads-up display
    • 5.0-inch touchscreen with haptic rotary dials for air-conditioning
    • Four-zone climate control
    • Ionising air purifier with PM2.5 filtration
    • ‘In Control’ Connected car technology
    • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto 
    • Wireless charger
    • ClearSight Rear View Mirror 
    • Drive modes – Eco, Dynamic, Comfort, Rain/Snow/Ice
    • 16-way heated/cooled and powered memory front seats
    • ‘Windsor’ leather upholstery 
    • 16-speaker, 825W Meridian sound system

    Powertrain, range, and charging

    The Jaguar I-Pace will come powered by two electric motors (installed on each axle), which deliver an exceptional combined power output of 400 PS and a peak torque of 696 Nm. The motors are juiced by a state-of-the-art 90-kWh Lithium-ion battery pack offering a range of 470 kilometres on the WLTP cycle. The EV gets an all-wheel-drive system and can sprint from 0 to 100 kmph in just 4.8 seconds.

    As for charging, the EV will take just 40 minutes to achieve an 80% SoC using DC rapid charging (up to 100-kW). However, home charging with the help of a 7-KW AC wall box will take ten hours for the same state of charge.


    In terms of safety and advanced-driver assistance, the upcoming Jaguar I-Pace EV is expected to get six airbags, parking assist, 3D 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, hill launch assist, dynamic stability control, tyre pressure monitoring system, low traction launch, enhanced brake regeneration, and more.
