Andy Murray, two-time Wimbledon champion has fulfilled his promise to “go electric,” by becoming one of the first owners of the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace electric car.
In March, Murray made a commitment to “go electric” and to become one of the first Jaguar I-Pace customers on World Environment Day. “It’s important we all take small steps to live a more sustainable life and think about the actions we can make to look after our planet. This is one of the reasons I’m making the switch to driving Jaguar’s new all-electric I-Pace,” Murray stated. “It’s clean and safe, but also has the world class design and sports performance that suits my lifestyle.”
Panasonic Jaguar Racing driver and fellow WWF ambassador, Nelson Piquet Jr. dropped off I-Pace to Murray at at his training camp.
“I think it’s brilliant that Andy has made this commitment to go electric and has been vocal in encouraging more people to take action and make little changes to live more sustainably,” added Piquet Jr. “The Jaguar I-Pace is proof that you don’t have to sacrifice power or performance when you switch to electric.”
In the U.S. the 2019 I-Pace is priced at $70,495 and can travel up to 240 miles on a single charge.
