Two-time Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray has fulfilled the promise he made during WWF’s World Earth Hour to ‘go electric’ and become one of the first Jaguar I-PACE customers on World Environment Day.

Supporting the commitment Murray made to switch to Jaguar’s first all-electric performance SUV in March this year, Panasonic Jaguar Racing driver and fellow WWF ambassador, Nelson Piquet Jr, visited the British tennis star at his training camp and made a special delivery ahead of the grass court season.

The two-time Olympic champion commented, “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. It’s clean and safe, but also has the world class design and sports performance that suits my lifestyle.”

Nelson Piquet Jr, Panasonic Jaguar Racing driver, said, “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.

“The Jaguar I-Pace is proof that you don’t have to sacrifice power or performance when you switch to electric.”

Andy Murray’s serving is electrifying at the best of times, and so will be the car he is driving.
