Jaguar’s Tesla Model X rival, the all-electric SUV the I-Pace has become the first vehicle to win awards in three categories in the same year at the 2019 World Car Awards. The all-electric Jaguar I-Pace won awards for World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year and Green Car of the Year. The I-Pace is also the first model ever to win three World Car titles in the last 15-year history of the awards. The I-Pace was awarded the treble at the New York International Auto Show by a panel of 86 motoring journalists from 24 countries. 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 idea, 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.”
Before this, the Jaguar SUV had also recently won the European Car of the Year title and declared its status as the most desirable premium electric vehicle in the world. Ever since its unveiling over a year ago the Jaguar I-Pace has won over 60 awards including the European Car of the Year, German, Norwegian and UK Car of the Year, BBC TopGear magazine EV of the Year, China Green Car of the Year, and Autobest’s ECOBEST Award, and many more. The Jaguar I-Pace is bound to hit the Nepali streets soon and we will be right on the scene when it does show up.
