The Jaguar I-Pace does something no other model from the leaping cat has ever done - it purrs.

Jaguar’s traditionally growl, with sonorous six, eight or 12 cylinder engines. But the I-Pace ushers in a new era for the British brand, acclerating it into the electric car future. As a result the noise emitted from this Jaguar isn’t so much a roar but a gentle purring from the electric powertrain.

Of course, that’s not the only major difference between the I-Pace and the rest of its feline family. It rides on an all-new bespoke EV platform that has allowed the designers to shape a radical new look for the brand.

But is it the right car at the right time or a leap too far?
