The sleek Jaguar electric I-PACE scored an impressive 91% for adult occupant protection, 81% for child occupant protection and 81% for safety assist. It scored maximum points for both the side barrier impact and the more severe side pole test, with good protection of all critical body areas.

This result continues to affirm Jaguar’s commitment to engineering the safest SUVs in the world plus bolsters the image of the E and F-Pace SUVs, which have also achieved the 5-star rating.

Its ultra-lightweight aluminium body structure ensures high levels of structural rigidity when combined with the integral battery pack. It’s protected by a structural aluminium frame and delivers unmatched chassis stiffness.

Highlights of the body design include industry-first use of aluminium forgings, and Jaguar-first applications of post-form heat treatment to increase the strength of the aluminium alloys used in crash-critical areas.
