Tuesday 12th November 2019, Whitley, UK – Jaguar’s all-electric Performance SUV has won Germany’s most famous car award, the Golden Steering Wheel. The I-PACE triumphed in the mid-size SUV category, ahead of the Audi Q3 and Seat Tarraco.
Designed and developed in the UK, the I-PACE was created from a clean sheet of paper with the aim of delivering the world’s best premium electric vehicle – and a true Jaguar driver’s car. Its combination of sports car performance, zero emissions, exceptional refinement, and all-wheel drive SUV usability and practicality make I-PACE the stand-out choice in its segment.
A 90 kWh lithium-ion battery enables a range of up to 470 km* (WLTP) and is capable of charging from 0-80% in just 40 minutes (100 kW DC). The two light, compact and efficient Jaguar-designed motors generate a combined output of 294 kW and 696 Nm of instant torque, delivering 0-100 km/h in just 4.5s.
Prof. Sir Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover Chief Executive Officer, accepted the Golden Steering Wheel for the Jaguar I-PACE at the award ceremony in Berlin, and said: “As part of our ‘Destination Zero’ vision, Jaguar Land Rover is pursuing an ambitious goal: To establish an environmentally friendly closed-loop economy. The Jaguar I-PACE is the clear and creative representation of our vision – an exciting, emissions-free electric vehicle.
As a British manufacturer of premium vehicles we are delighted to win the Golden Steering Wheel in the world's most demanding and competitive premium car market.
This award is one of many prestigious awards the I-PACE has won. We will use this validation to intensify our efforts to offer desirable and highly innovative vehicles to our customers.
I thank the readers and the experts for rewarding the courage and forward thinking of our designers and engineers with their vote for the I-PACE.”

This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile.
