The Jaguar I-PACE Concept Receives Two Noteworthy Awards

Recently, Jaguar proudly reported that its I-PACE Concept vehicle brought home the top award from the 16th North American Concept Vehicle Awards. Jaguar's all-electric SUV was granted the highest overall score by a jury of automotive experts to win the title of "Most Significant Concept Vehicle." In addition, the I-PACE Concept also earned the "Production Preview Concept of the Year" award.

The awards ceremony was held at the Concours d'Elegance of America, recognizing the vehicles that jurors believe are most likely to direct the automotive industry's future. The jury, which was formed by more than two dozen members, examined 24 vehicles that had previously made their North American debuts at auto shows in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Toronto and Detroit.

In a press release, Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, was quoted as remarking, “Our challenge was to design an electric vehicle that’s distinctively and unmistakably a Jaguar – and one which demonstrates that an electric vehicle can be visually dramatic as well as practical. I think that the Jaguar I-PACE Concept has done exactly that, and is clearly at the forefront of the trend for more beautiful, more desirable electric vehicles. We’re very proud of it, and we’re delighted that the North American jurors have recognized us for succeeding in our mission by awarding the I-PACE Concept the 2017 Concept Car of the Year.”

The I-PACE Concept offers an exciting preview of the company's first electric vehicle, which we expect to come to our roads in the second half of next year.
