The electric Jaguar i-Pace is the 2019 UK Car of the Year, after a closely fought battle with three other manufacturers.
Having been named the Best Executive car when the category winners were announced in February, the Jaguar was pitted against the 11 other triumphant new cars to fight it out for the top accolade of overall winner.
It is the third time in six years of the UK Car of the Year Awards that the overall victor has been battery-powered. John Challen, director of the UK Car of the Year Awards, said:
“As manufacturers take electric vehicles more seriously, Jaguar is leading the pack with the i-Pace, which offers fantastic range and performance as well as a stylish and spacious interior for driver and passengers.
“The UK Car of the Year Awards judges are always keen to recognise innovation and that is certainly the case in 2019.”
Collecting the UK Car of the Year Awards 2019 trophy, Rawdon Glover, Jaguar Land Rover MD, said:
“This latest major award for the i-Pace is something we can all be extremely proud of. This car was conceived, designed and engineered in Britain, so to have a selection of the nation’s leading automotive journalists vote it as the overall UK Car of the Year against some stiff competition is a special moment for us.”
