Jaguar I-Pace SUV fleet to be used for offering shuttle services from Heathrow airport
British automaker Jaguar has revealed in a recent announcement that a fleet of its all-electric I-Pace SUVs will be used at the Heathrow airport, for offering shuttle services. The automaker also said that the use of I-Pace SUVs at the airport will start during “the summer 2018.”
The announcement is noteworthy because even though the Jaguar I-Pace SUVs are still to arrive in the market, the large orders which Jaguar has received for the vehicle has already resulted in a considerable backlog.
According to Jaguar’s recent announcement, the automaker has received an order of 200 I-Pace SUVs for shuttle-service use from the Heathrow airport. For building up a fleet of the I-Pace SUVs, the airport has teamed up with Jaguar and WeKnowGroup travel services firm.
The latest order for I-Pace SUV fleet of 200 vehicles for the airport is an apparent indication of the increasing popularity of all-electric vehicles for taxi services at airports.
With regard to the delivery of the 200 I-Pace SUVs for the airport, Jaguar said that the first 50 units of the vehicle will be delivered this summer, with the remaining 150 units to be added to the fleet “over the next 12 months.” Jaguar has also revealed that a charging station will be installed at the Heathrow airport to support the I-Pace SUV fleet.
