The support programs in Spain for electromobility are known as "MOVES". In April 2021, the government presented and approved the current MOVES III program.

Hardly any other model currently stands for the consistent switch to electromobility at Jaguar like the I-PACE. By the year 2025, Jaguar will consistently switch to electromobility in all vehicles. Since the former Renault boss Thierry Bolloré took over the management at Jaguar, a positioning in the premium segment has also been consistently pursued. In our test, we focus on the current Jaguar I-Pace and test it as a touring sedan on our trip to Scandinavia. The coupe… Continue reading "Jaguar I-Pace EV400 travel test 2022
