Jaguar has committed to electrify the Wimbledon finals with a huge fleet of pure EV I-Pace for tennis stars and officials
Jaguar has renewed its partnership with Wimbledon and has pledged to electrify the championships by focusing its executive fleet around the Jaguar I-Pace EV.
A total of 179 Jaguars and Land Rovers will be used to help run the flagship tennis events which run from Monday June 28 to Sunday 11 July – and most of them will be Jaguar I-Pace.
Jaguar has committed another five years to the partnership, and says the two organisations will now redouble efforts to “create a more sustainable future with electrification at its heart”.
The I-Pace EV will be the centrepiece, used to ferry global tennis stars in zero-emissions comfort for the duration of the two-week event.
“As part of our environment positive commitment,” said All England Lawn Tennis Club director Mick Desmond, “we are working hard to reduce carbon emissions to net-zero by 2030.
“Jaguar is playing an important role in helping us achieve this commitment by showcasing the zero-emission I-Pace cars within the Wimbledon fleet.”
The I-Pace was the world’s first pure EV SUV at launch. It scooped an as-yet unmatched World Car Awards triple in 2019, taking the World Green Car, World Car Design and overall World Car of the Year awards.
