“United is working to lead with innovation and purpose that motivates the industry to do better for our customers and communities. Partnering with Jaguar to deploy an all-electric fleet is not only a smart business move, as we know customers consider sustainability when booking travel, it is the right thing to do.”

Also, the airline added that, on the tarmac, United customers will experience the award-winning, spacious, all-electric performance SUV that combines a supercar silhouette with the flexibility of an EPA estimated electric range of up to 246 miles1 and five-seat SUV versatility.

In addition, every 2023 I-PACE features Amazon Alexa6 connectivity that delivers a suite of enhancements to its infotainment interface and Wireless Device Charging.
