Jaguar launches the first all-electric RACE eTAXI experience for thrill-seekers in Nürburgring Nordschleife
Thrill seekers rejoice; Jaguar has launched the very first all-electric RACE eTAXI service at the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife, with its I-PACE performance SUV taking the stage.
Adrenaline junkies and fans of electric vehicles can now join professional drivers to experience the celebrated sports car performance of the Jaguar I-PACE at one of the world’s most demanding race circuits.
The circuit; which is affectionately known as the ‘Green Hell’ by racing fans thanks to the 1,000 feet of elevation change from its lowest to highest point, is still no match for the all-electric I-PACE; which won the 2019 World Car of the Year, European Car of the Year and German Car of the Year. This zero-emissions model can famously accelerate from 0-60mph in just 4.5 seconds thanks to its state-of-the-art 90kWh lithium-ion battery, (which develops 400PS and 696Nm of torque) and thanks to its dynamic handling and four-wheel drive, it is more than capable of coping with any of the conditions that the Nürburgring has to offer.
With the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team currently preparing for their fourth season in Formula E, it’s safe to say that Jaguar are no stranger to electric race cars – so this launch of the very first all-electric RACE eTAXI is just another step in Jaguar’s trail-blazing electrification strategy that is set to spread right across Europe over the next few years.
This one-of-a-kind experience enables more people to experience Jaguar’s award-winning I-PACE first-hand, and is available from now until the end of the season from €149 per lap.
