The $119,000 I-Pace S marks the entry point to the new pure-electric SUV model line, sitting $11,200 beneath the $130,200 SE. 

The I-Pace S comes standard with 'Luxtec' faux-leather seat trim with eight-way power adjustment on the fronts, 10-inch multimedia and 12.3-inch driver instrument displays, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, Meridian audio system, dual-zone climate control, proximity keys, LED head and tail-lights and 'Style 1022' 18-inch alloys.

The S also includes a warranty-length subscription to the 'InControl App Remote' smartphone app, which allows remote monitoring of the vehicle’s status and the ability to pre-condition the cabin temperature before you arrive at the car. Bound to be handy on particularly hot or cold days.

Providing electric drive to all four wheels are twin electric motors located on the front and rear axles, with combined outputs of 294kW/696Nm delivering claimed 0-100km/h acceleration in 4.8s. 

Its driving range is rated at 470km (WTLP) thanks to a 90kw/h battery lining the body's floor, which can be charged from empty in 43 hours via a standard power point, or regain 11km of charge per hour. 

You can step this up to 35km of range per hour with a Jet Charge wall box installed, which would cut the total charge time down to 13 hours. 

There’s also the option of charging at public charge stations (currently 150 compatible stations nationwide), but the current best-case charge scenario would be via the first 350kW ultra-rapid charger installed in Victoria, which promises 0-80 per cent charge in around 40 minutes.

All I-Pace variants carry a maximum five star ANCAP safety rating.
