TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER: FORMULA E

Jaguar I-PACE Concept - 2016 - Formula-E strategy

Jaguar I-PACE Concept – 2016 – Formula-E strategy

Jaguar has a proud heritage of motorsport success, winning the Le Mans 24 Hours sports car endurance race a remarkable seven times. Through competition, Jaguar has pioneered and evolved new technologies, from disc brakes to aerodynamic features. The Formula E Championship now offers a proving ground for electric racing and performance engineering. The series takes place on street circuits in the world’s biggest cities using standardised chassis and battery systems but allowing teams to compete with their own electric motors, control units and transmissions.

The championship will accelerate the development of future electric powertrains. Jaguar engineers will ensure those advances feed directly into its road car programmes.

“It is my belief that over the next five years we will see more changes in the automotive world than in the last three decades. The future is about being more connected and more sustainable; electrification and lightweight technologies are becoming more important than ever as urbanisation continues to increase.

“Formula E has recognised and reacted to these trends and the championship’s exciting and pioneering approach is the perfect fit for our brand.”

– Nick Rogers, Group Engineering Director, Jaguar Land Rover

Jaguar I-PACE Concept Design – Ian Callum and Alister Whelan


Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, and Alister Whelan, Interior Design Creative Director, explore the design principles of the I-PACE Concept, Jaguar’s first all-electric car. Transportation will change more in the next decade than it has in the past 50 years, and we’re prepared for that change. Ground-breaking design, true Jaguar performance and competitive range and charging times will make I-PACE Concept the first real electric alternative to a traditional premium SUV.

“The opportunities offered by an electric powertrain are huge. Electric vehicles offer designers much greater freedom, and it is an opportunity we must grasp. This is why the I-PACE Concept is developed on a new architecture which has been designed to optimise electric vehicle performance, aerodynamics and interior space.

“With the I-PACE Concept, the revolution is in the profile, not the design language. The profile is possible because this car is electric. It’s not just that we wanted to create something that was very different from anything else we do: we wanted the design to celebrate the new battery electric technology.

“I was determined from the very beginning of this project to create a design which reflected this change in the mechanics of the car. This is what led to the sporty cab-forward profile rather than a car with a bonnet and an engine.”

– Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar

“No other project I’ve worked on has given me the sheer thrill that this one did.”
– Ian Callum, Director of design, Jaguar

The result is an exceptional vehicle that combines an advanced cab-forward design inspired by the C-X75 supercar with the smooth silhouette of a coupe – in a five-seater SUV. The I-PACE Concept embodies the technological advances under its skin – and the Jaguar design team’s belief that consumers are ready for bolder electric vehicle designs.

Airflow also passes through the C-X75-derived bonnet scoop, helping to reduce drag. Slimline full LED headlights with Jaguar’s signature Double-J daytime running light motif further emphasise the vehicle’s clean lines.

“My favourite is still C-X75; you work around what you have. It liberates you to be able to put the people – who set the visual volume of the car more than anything – where you want them to be, which naturally is further forward.

It’s practical to do so also; you get more space between the wheels when you’re not constrained by the engine package. But also we don’t like to see a lot of mass over the back of the car. You want to push that mass forward, otherwise the car looks like it’s falling back. That’s just an instinct and so it was incredibly gratifying to have had the opportunity to do just that with the I-PACE Concept.”

– Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar

Long de 4 680 mm, large de 1 890 mm et haut de 1 560 mm, le Jaguar I-Pace a un empattement de 2 990 mm.

Le concept de SUV I-Pace se singularise par une silhouette de coupé, un habitacle avancé, un profil aérodynamique, des lignes galbées, des porte-à-faux courts.

La large calandre avec sa grille hexagonale reste un élément-clé de l‘ADN de Jaguar tout en apportant des bénéfices aérodynamiques. La prise d’air du capot contribue à réduire le Cx (coeff de trainée aero). Et pour la première fois, l’habitacle très avancé rompt avec la tradition des longs capots caractéristiques du constrcuteur depuis la Jaguar Type-E de 1961.

The I-PACE Concept’s cab-forward position, low bonnet and short overhangs provide the driver with an exceptional view of the road and the vehicle’s surroundings. A little like the Jaguar E-Type, the front wings beautifully frame the road ahead, enabling drivers to select the line through corners with confidence.

Avec un Cx de 0,29, le coefficient de pénétration dans l’air, plutôt exceptionnel pour un véhicule aussi haut, s’explique par un travail minutieux des designers. Par exemple, le designer Ian Callum explique que « Le plus difficile est de contrôler l’air à l’arrière de la voiture, nous avons donc dessiné la poupe en fonction des exigences des aérodynamiciens. »

“Aerodynamics is a huge challenge. You can’t deny physics and it’s always a sign of a good designer to ensure that the aero is as efficient as it can be within all the constraints, remembering, of course, that one of the constraints is the aesthetic.

“It helped that the car was a whole new type of vehicle and there are no previous references. The profile helps the aero tremendously. If it was a very square, linear car – with vertical lines – the aero becomes naturally much more difficult. The back of the car relative to the front is very high and that is purely driven by the physics.

What air does when it leaves the car is actually the most difficult part to control. The back of the car especially was determined by aero requirements.”

– Ian Callum

À l’arrière Le fin spoiler en composite accentue la sportivité du véhicule tout en réduisant la portance à grande vitesse sans compromettre le coefficient de pénétration dans l’air (le Cx).

La forte inclinaison de la vitre arrière est aérodynamique. Des prises d’air arrière remplacent « visuellement » les sorties d’échappement. Le diffuseur arrière participe à l’efficacité aérodynamique du concept de e-Sport-Utility-Vehicle Jaguar.

Design intérieur Jaguar I-PACE

La plateforme utilisée avec l’absence d’arbre de transmission a permis de limiter les porte à faux et d’optimiser la surface habitable. Le plancher totalement plat à l’arrière, sans aucun tunnel de transmission, donc.

“Our brief was to create a spacious performance SUV that could comfortably carry five people. Otherwise we had a clean sheet of paper. To deliver this, we embraced the freedom that electrification offers designers.

“The electric powertrain and the cab-forward layout positions the driver further forward, increasing the space for row-two occupants. This also allows the 530-litre luggage compartment volume without compromising the dramatic silhouette.”

Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar

“The cab-forward design and electric powertrain were fundamental to the way that we created the interior.”
– Alister Whelan, Creative Director, Jaguar Interiors

“The cab-forward design and electric powertrain were fundamental to the way that we created the interior. They have allowed us to create a spacious and comfortable cabin environment with numerous opportunities for innovative storage and passenger space.”
– Alister Whelan, Creative Director, Jaguar Interiors

The primary interface is a 12-inch TFT touchscreen blended seamlessly into the surface of the instrument panel. A separate, 5.5-inch secondary touchscreen is paired with two laser etched aluminium rotaries that encase vibrant HD circular displays. This allows occupants to configure infotainment and climate whilst keeping full screen information on the 12-inch display above. The I-PACE Concept also features a configurable 12-inch HD virtual instrument cluster and a full-colour head-up display, ensuring that the driver is always presented with the information they need when and where they need it.

With no transmission tunnel to accommodate, Jaguar designers used the free space to create an innovative 8-litre stowage area within the centre console. With the traditional gear shifter also absent, the I-PACE Concept instead has smart storage space for phones, keys and other small items.

« This is an uncompromised electric vehicle designed from a clean sheet of paper: we developed a new architecture and selected only the best technology available. The I-PACE Concept fully exploits the potential EVs can offer in space utilisation, driving pleasure and performance. » – Dr Wolfgang Ziebart, Technical Design Director, Jaguar Land Rover


Châssis Jaguar I-PACE

Sans chercher à électrifier un modèle existant de sa gamme, Jaguar est parti d’une page blanche pour concevoir cet I-PACE. Le recourt à une plateforme totalement inédite a permis de faciliter l’intégration des différents éléments électriques.

« When you get behind the wheel, the driving experience reflects the I-PACE Concept’s dynamic design. It’s a true Jaguar and we will prove that a zero emission vehicle can be a true driver’s car. »

« We proved with the F-PACE that a performance crossover can deliver the agility, connected feel and ride quality you’d expect from a Jaguar. Now we’re going to do the same with the I-PACE Concept: this will be the first electric vehicle developed for enthusiasts who love driving. »

– Mike Cross, Chief Engineer of Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar Land Rover

The muscular wheel arches are sculpted around breathtaking 23-inch Nighthawk wheels in Technical Grey with Gloss Black inserts and a beautiful diamond-turned finish, which broadcast the I-PACE Concept’s sense of purpose. Their dynamic intent is enhanced by bespoke 265/35/R23 tyres with a unique tread pattern. The powerful rear haunches add to the muscular stance, further enhancing its sports car-like poise.


Moteur Jaguar I-PACE

Sous le capot avant, il y a l’onduleur, le chargeur et la plupart de l’électronique. Ces appareils occupent moins de place que le bon vieux moteur à combustion accouplé à sa boîte de vitesses. Ainsi, cette Jaguar I-PACE promet d’offrir davantage d’espace à ses cinq passagers que le SUV Jaguar F-Pace pourtant plus haut et plus long.

Jaguar I-PACE Concept – Under the skin


Under the skin, the Jaguar I-PACE Concept is radically different to a combustion-engined car, with a state-of-the-art electric propulsion system designed and developed for optimum performance and efficiency. See what lies beneath.

The I-PACE Concept’s range is more than 500km on the European NEDC combined cycle and more than 220 miles on the US EPA cycle. With an average daily commute of 40-50km, most customers will need to charge the car just once a week. The battery can be charged at public charging stations, a dedicated wall box at home, or simply using conventional domestic power sockets.

Charging is easy and quick, with 80 per cent charge achieved in 90 minutes and 100 per cent in just over two hours using 50kW DC charging.

“Electric vehicles are inevitable – Jaguar will make them desirable. Zero emission cars are here to stay and the I-PACE Concept is at the cutting edge of the electric vehicle revolution.

“As the charging infrastructure continues to develop globally – and with enough range to mean most people would only need to charge once a week – cars like the I-PACE Concept will make drivers appreciate that an EV can be rewarding and practical enough to drive every day.”
– Ian Hoban, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar Land Rover

Energy storage in the I-PACE Concept is a liquid-cooled 90kWh lithium-ion battery pack, designed and developed in-house. The battery’s housing is lightweight aluminium and forms an integral part of the I-PACE Concept’s body structure.

Jaguar explique avoir composé lui-même cet accumulateur au lithium-ion, afin de trouver le juste équilibre entre puissance et endurance, entre longévité et rapidité de charge.

Les cellules des batteries font appel à des électrodes au nickel, manganèse et cobalt, une technologie dite NMC qui a récemment permis à la Renault ZOE de presque doubler son autonomie et la capacité de sa batterie. Pour un encombrement identique.

Dans la « eJaguar », la batterie loge entièrement entre les deux feuilles d’aluminium qui forment plancher. A chaque extrémité se greffent les trains roulants, entraînés chacun par leur propre moteur électrique. De quoi assurer la transmission permanente et variable aux quatre roues de quelque 700 Nm de couple et 400 chevaux.

“Electric motors provide immediate response with no lag, no gearshifts and no interruptions.”

“Their superior torque delivery compared to internal combustion engines transforms the driving experience. With 700Nm and the traction benefits of all-wheel drive, the I-PACE Concept accelerates from 0-60mph in around four seconds.” (0-96km/h en 4s)

– Ian Hoban

Il y a deux moteurs électriques de 200ch. installés sur chaque essieu. Puissance totale : 400 ch, pour un couple de 700 Nm disponibles dès le départ. Le 0 à 100 km s’i-pace en 4 secondes.
