The Jaguar I-Pace received the maximum votes from a panel of 12 expert journalists
Jaguar I-Pace, the company’s first all-electric five-seater sports car – has bagged the prestigious 2019 ‘German Car of the Year’ Award. The electric SUV received the maximum votes from a panel of 12 expert journalists who drove 59 cars in a series of comparison test.
The jury evaluated all the vehicles on six parameters – design, performance, ride, handling, future viability and general relevance. The vehicles were tested on road and at the Bilster Berg circuit. The Jaguar I-Pace ticked all the boxes and topped the list.

Jens Meiners, German Car of the Year Award jury member and spokesman, said “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. Its performance is impressive, and its design and practicality stand out, which is why the I-PACE ultimately was the winner against strong competition.”
Accepting the award, Prof. Dr. Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover CEO, said: “We are extremely proud to receive this honour 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.”
Besides this, the electric SUV has also been shortlisted for the ‘Women’s World Car of the Year’ Award along with the Jaguar E-Pace compact performance SUV. The result will be declared on November 12, 2018.
