The new all-electric Jaguar I-PACE is quite an accomplished car, as we testified during our short drive a couple of weeks ago. It turns out we are not the only ones bowled over by its tech and overall packaging. The judges at the 2019 World Car of the Year Awards also think it’s the business, and have thus awarded it not one by three awards, a first for the 15-year old competition.

The main award taken by the I-PACE is that of 2019 World Car of the Year, which is the overall winning award. As if that was not enough, it also scooped the World Car Design of the Year and the World Green Car awards too. We certainly cannot disagree with any of these medals. The I-PACE deserves all the accolades it’s getting and will be a hard act to beat when rivals begin launching their own offerings in the segment.

Prof. Dr. Ralf Speth, Chief Executive Officer, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “It is an honour that the Jaguar I-PACE has received these three accolades from the prestigious World Car jurors. We started with an ideal, to move towards our Destination Zero vision; zero emissions, zero accidents and zero congestion. I-PACE is our first step to achieving this, and it was conceived when EVs were little more than a niche choice. So we started from a clean sheet of paper to create a new benchmark – the world’s best premium electric vehicle, and a true Jaguar driver’s car. For I-PACE to be awarded 2019 World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year and World Green Car gives our first all-electric vehicle the ultimate recognition it deserves. I would like to thank the team who have created I-PACE for their passion in making it so outstanding.”
