Here's Why The Electric Jaguar I-Pace Still Has A Functional Front Grille

  Here's Why The Electric Jaguar I-Pace Still Has A Functional Front Grille Many people have challenged the design team at Jaguar for slapping the corporate face on the innovative new Jaguar I-Pace, claiming it doesn’t need a grille if it’s electric. Jaguar wanted to set the record straight at the New York Auto Show, and it turns out the grille actually serves two vital functions. The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace Will Have An Electric Range Of 240 Miles To Match Its Good LooksIt’s easy to look at cars like the Tesla Model 3 and Nissan Leaf and assume that electric vehicles do not need an air intake like traditional internal combustion vehicles, but that’s not necessarily true.

The AMG 35 models will compete with the likes of the Audi S3. As for the range -topping 45 version, Moers won’t divulge details such as horsepower figures, but we expect it to match and possibly outdo the 400-hp Audi RS3, which we named one of our 2018 10Best Cars . AMG fans will appreciate the

The current Mercedes-Benz lineup has a massive gap between the entry-level CLA250 and GLA250 models, which are powered by a turbocharged 208-hp 2.0-liter four, and the fire-breathing AMG 45 variants, fitted with the hand-built and AMG-specific 375-hp 2.0-liter turbo four. With the coming introduction of a new generation of the A-class (pictured), look for AMG to fill that gap.

Speaking about the upcoming new A-class sedan, AMG CEO Tobias Moers said, "There will be a new AMG 45, but in addition to that, we will launch an AMG 35 with around 300 horsepower." Beyond the AMG 35, we expect this engine to be offered in the CLA and GLA models as well. The AMG 35 models will compete with the likes of the Audi S3.

  QUICK LOOK: 2019 Range Rover P400e PHEV New plug-in hybrid will become flagship of Range Rover luxury SUV lineThe battery can power the 85-kW electric motor for up to 50 km, but that’s an optimistic range, and especially if the big SUV is driven off-road. Unless you specify otherwise, the electric power boosts the gasoline power, providing extra performance when it’s needed but also switching itself over to all-electric when possible, to save fuel.

As for the range -topping 45 version, Moers won’t divulge details such as horsepower figures, but we expect it to match and possibly outdo the 400-hp Audi RS3, which we named one of our 2018 10Best Cars . AMG fans will appreciate the fact that the new version will not only keep being built in one-man

AMG , which is going to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2017, created the 43 model lineup for customers that want a sportier driving experience but don’t necessarily need the high-end performance figures of the 2019 Range Rover Sport Adds New PHEV Powertrain And Off-Road Technology.

As for the range-topping 45 version, Moers won't divulge details such as horsepower figures, but we expect it to match and possibly outdo the 400-hp Audi RS3, which we named one of our 2018 10Best Cars. AMG fans will appreciate the fact that the new version will not only keep being built in one-man, one-engine fashion, it will also henceforth be made in AMG's headquarters in Affalterbach.

We expect the new AMG 35 and 45 models to arrive for the 2019 or 2020 model year.
