A new deal signed at Heathrow will introduce up to 200 fully electric Jaguar I-PACE vehicles for passengers travelling to and from the airport.

The new service, emerging from an agreement between Heathrow, car brand Jaguar and travel services firm WeKnowGroup, will be rolled out this summer.

Up of 50 I-PACEs will be available initially, but the deal gives Heathrow the option of adding a further 150 cars over the next 12 months.

The fleet would make up to 1,000 electric vehicle journeys each day, saving over eight tonnes of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions annually.

WeKnowGroup will install a dedicated charging hub at Heathrow to support the service.

Engineered by Jaguar Land Rover, the I-PACE carries a 90kWh Lithium-ion battery and is capable of travelling up to 298 miles on a single charge.
