The Jaguar I-PACE shrugged off the steep inclines, twisting tarmac and near-freezing temperatures of the United Kingdom's highest paved road to successfully 'Everest' on a single charge of its 90kWh battery.

The concept of Everesting is simple, yet extreme: Complete a series of runs uphill until achieving an elevation gain of 8,848m - equal to an ascent of Mount Everest. The popularity of this endurance challenge boomed amongst adventurers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Having covered around 200km in total, including an 13km drive to the start line, the I-PACE completed the energy-intensive challenge with an astounding 31% battery charge remaining - enough to drive for up to 128km more.

Key to the successful completion of the Everesting challenge was the I-PACE's regenerative braking system. Developed using technology adapted from Jaguar Racing's Formula E programme, 'Regen' technology is a critical enabler for success on the track.

The Jaguar I-PACE combines outstanding performance with exceptional mileage - accelerating from zero to 100km/h takes 4.8 seconds, yet offers up to 470km of range.  A 100kW DC charger can add up to 127km of range in just 15 minutes of charging.
