Jaguar I-Pace Named Green Utility Vehicle of the Year by AJAC

The Automotive Journalists Association of Canada has just named the Jaguar I-Pace the Green Utility Vehicle of the year.


The new Jaguar I-Pace electric luxury sport utility vehicle beat out the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. Unveiled last year, the new I-Pace is 100 percent electric and is actually the first premium electric SUV to hit the market.

It will be followed in June by the Audi e-tron and then the Mercedes-Benz EQC next year. For now, however, the I-Pace sits alone in a segment that’s about to get very popular among luxury automakers.

Larger, more luxurious and more expensive than the recently unveiled Tesla Model Y, the Jaguar I-Pace is also a lot more affordable than the Tesla Model X with a starting price of $89,800. Featuring 377 kilometers of range, it packs 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque, enough to get to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds.

Earlier this year, the I-Pace was named Canadian Utility Vehicle by the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada.

“We are thrilled that the I-PACE has been honoured once again by AJAC with the Canadian Green Utility of the Year Award,” said Wolfgang R. Hoffmann, President, Jaguar Land Rover Canada. “This is a great testament to the team of engineers and designers who envisioned and created this remarkable machine. Winning both the overall Canadian Utility of the Year and now the Green award puts us in elite company and is an achievement we will always be proud of.”

Both the Canadian Utility Vehicle and Green Utility Vehicle awards are a result of intensive testing by AJAC journalists held in October where a range of new vehicles are compared in identical conditions on and off road as well as on track. The Kia Niro took home the award last year.

  1. A word of caution about the i-Pace. We took delivery of ours Dec 24, 2018 – on Dec 28 it was towed back to the dealership. It is now March 20, 2019 and we still don’t have the car back… First we were told it was a switch, then a coupling, then it needed a new wiring harness, then it turns out it was two different wiring harnesses. We were told when the parts arrived they still couldn’t fix the car as they “didn’t know how”. Both Jaguar Canada and the dealership have been polite, but useless. At this point we just want our money back…
