Although there was a first electric small car, which is, however, a lot of cost and rarely more than 100 kilometers managed. 2013 Tesla with the Premium sedan Model S to Europe – and suddenly the E-mobility was cool. To the competition reacted, and above all the high-priced Europeans, it took years.

And now I'm standing here on the Bürgenstock, high above lake Lucerne, and increases in the fully-loaded Jaguar I-Pace, the Crossover was 2018, the first European competitor, who competed against Tesla. In the forest the hotel, I filled the tank up, overnight, free current. Nevertheless, my joy in this: Instead of as in the prospectus of up to 470 kilometers of the I-Pace shows in the razor sharp display only 330 kilometers of range.

debt is, in turn, the Bürgenstock: to heave Because of the more than 2.3 tons via narrow switchbacks to the over 1100 meters of height, a cost of power or battery. And the curvy roads to spur me on to test whether the I-keeps Pace really, what it promises: to be a real athlete under the E-cars. The potential is all there: The E-Motor at the front and rear axle together provide 400 HP and almost 700 Nm.

On the road, this means acceleration is similar to a catapult. And yet, I can Pace, thanks to the electric four wheel drive never get out of the rest. Only in the case of too early to Kick down on corner exit, the electronics way regulates the Power supply to strong. Nevertheless, driving is technically the properly large drive-in cinema.
