Jaguar I-PACE Named Germany’s Car of the Year
Jaguar’s first electric vehicle wins German Car of the Year award 2019 against 58 competitors.
Jaguar’s I-PACE beat out 58 competitors to nab the coveted German Car of the Year award. The first fully electric vehicle (EV) SUV earned the most votes from a panel of 12 expert journalists who drove 59 cars in a series of comparison tests.
The groundbreaking I-PACE made an impression and earned accolades for its blend of driving dynamics, performance, and style.
“The Jaguar I-PACE is not only the first premium electric vehicle from an established manufacturer, it also makes uncompromising use of the advantages of an electrified vehicle architecture,” said Jens Meiners, German Car of the Year Jury Member and Spokesman. “Its performance is impressive, and its design and practicality stand out, which is why the I-PACE ultimately was the winner against strong competition.”
The British EV topped a shortlist of five to win the award. The jury evaluated the design, performance, ride, handling, future viability and general relevance of each model on the road and at the Bilster Berg circuit.
Jaguar Land Rover CEO Prof. Dr. Ralf Speth said of the award, “We are extremely proud to receive this honor from the German media for our first fully electric vehicle, the Jaguar I-PACE. To get such an award in the homeland of premium brands is very precious.”
