World Car Awards

The I-PACE won a total of three awards at the 2019 World Car Awards in March: World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year, and World Green Car. This has only been done once before (by Mercedes-Benz in 2015), and each World Car Award is selected by a panel of 86 prestigious automotive journalists from across 24 countries.

2019 World Car of the Year

The I-PACE won out against 39 other vehicles from all over the world then a short list of three finalists as announced in Geneva on March 5th. The top three choices were the Audi e-tron, the Jaguar I-PACE and the Volvo S60/V60. At the awards ceremony, Jaguar Land Rover CEO Dr. Ralf Speth stated:

  • “The combination of sports car performance, exceptional refinement and true SUV practicality make I-PACE the stand-out choice in its segment.”

2019 World Car Design of the Year

The World Car Design of the Year was awarded by a design panel of seven world design experts. The award is “meant to highlight new vehicles with innovation and style that push established boundaries.” The Jaguar Director of Design Ian Callum specific features of the award-winning I-PACE design:

  • “The I-PACE’s dramatic, cab-forward profile, short overhangs and taut, muscular haunches give it a sense of drama which set it apart from other SUVs.
  • The battery pre-conditioning system, which maximizes range by regulating battery temperature
  • Five-star Euro NCAP safety rating due to a body structure with “high levels of occupant protection”
  • Technologies like autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection
  • Spacious interior with “exacting Jaguar craftsmanship”

2019 World Green Car Award

The 2019 Jaguar I-PACE won World Green Car over ten other new vehicles. The candidates had to “employ some significant form of advanced technology specifically to enhance its environmental responsibility,” amongst other requirements. The Jaguar executives explain some of the technology:

  • “The thermal management system has a smart heat pump which can scavenge energy from the outside air and the vehicle’s high-voltage electronics to heat the cabin: this reduces the load of the battery, which in turn increase ranges – even in freezing conditions.”

European Car of the Year

In March 2019, the I-PACE beat out six other finalists to be chosen by 60 expert journalists for the European Car of the Year Award, which recognizes “technical innovation, design, performance, efficiency and value for money.” Find out more about Jaguar I-PACE pricing options at Jaguar Newport Beach.

IDA Design Awards Gold Winner

During the annual IDA Design Awards, the Jaguar I-PACE took the Gold medal for the category that included the industries of Transportation, Auto, Truck, and Mobile Home. The entry stated:

  • “Unmistakably a Jaguar, but with new lines made possible by the electric powertrain, the design of the I-PACE embodies performance, innovation and style, and represents a new generation of electric vehicle.”
