Jaguar will show off a bespoke full-size clay model of their electrified I-PACE crossover at the grand opening of the new V&A Design Museum in Dundee, Scotland.
The unveiling will take place on September 15th, with the Ian Callum-designed car meant to showcase the elaborate craftsmanship that goes into Jaguar’s automotive design process.
“Automotive design is hugely complex,” said Jaguar design boss, Ian Callum, who wrote Jaguar letters as a young boy, asking them to help him become a car designer.
“Although much of the design is done digitally, clay models are still important – they are our first chance to see the car in reality. As a child l was inspired to become a car designer at Jaguar and have been lucky enough to live out that dream.”
“Scotland has a long history of design excellence and the V&A Dundee is a fantastic opportunity to showcase this on a global stage. It has been an honour as a Scot to be involved with the opening of the new museum, and I hope our I-PACE exhibit can help inspire the next generation of design talent.”
The Jaguar I-PACE, priced from £63,495 in the UK and $70,495 in the U.S., is the British automaker’s most innovative family car ever. It features a 90 kWh Lithium-Ion battery, offering a maximum all-electric range of 298 miles (475 km). Getting you going are two electric motors combining for 400 PS (395 HP) and 696 Nm (513 lb-ft) of torque.
All that power, together with the car’s all-wheel drive system, means you can accelerate from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 4.5 seconds.
