    So it will sit price wise between the model 3 and model S/X. might get some sales if the model 3 is deficient in some way?

    Remember it is built in Germany so we will need a good deal from Europe to avoid having to pay any tariff.

    It's almost like Jaguar has come full circle from Swallow Sidecars to ... .

    Of course given JLR's usual delay between announcing a new product and making it a reality, even with a contract manufacturer, Magna may have built their Slovenian plant by then:

    Land Rover Defender 'icons' from Slovakia, Jaguars from Slovenia. Marvellous British company! Where's Jagular to celebrate?

    Given today's reality check of collapsing spending by the 99% in UK, and the bound to follow after the Election is out of the way, and Theresa safe with her 100+ majority, base rate cut and restarted QE by Carney at the BoE, and the pound being deliberately trashed resultingly, now that the 1% have liquidated most of their central London properties, Jaguars from Austria will be affordable only by the likes of May, in her chauffeur-driven one, so 0, 2.5, 10, or 25% tariff level, will matter not a jot.

    More interesting information on the I-Pace :

    Jaguar I-Pace
    It seems the concept’s retractable door handles will make it to production.

    It rarely happens for a production car to remain almost entirely faithful to the concept’s design, so we have to applaud Jaguar for not teasing us with an eye-grabbing showcar and then coming out with a vastly different car.

    There are probably some mild tweaks hiding underneath the camouflage, but overall the road-going model will greatly resemble the showcar originally introduced in November 2016 at the Los Angeles Auto Show. For its Euro debut in Geneva a few months ago, the I-Pace was dressed in striking red attire.

    Not only will the exterior design stay true to the concept, but we have a feeling it’s going to be the same story with the high-tech cabin. Expect to see a minimalist layout with few conventional buttons as most of the functions will be accessed using the touchscreen.
    An all-digital instrument cluster is also on the agenda for what will be an avant-garde cabin as it would be appropriate for Jaguar’s very first EV.

    Jaguar I-Pace
    Even though it hasn’t been revealed in its full production glory, the I-Pace has been reported as already on the assembly line at Magna Steyr’s Austrian plant.

    Based on that report, customer deliveries in Europe were thought to start before the year’s end or early 2018, while the U.S.-spec cars would not be ready for shipping until the second half of next year (as the company had previously stated).

    However, as is it turns out, that may not be retail production that is happening today on the I-Pace, as Magna (actual builder of the I-Pace) updated its build status last week when announcing that it will also be the sole builder of the BMW 530e in 2018, stating:

    “Magna started the split production on the BMW 5 Series sedan in March of this year and will commence production of the Jaguar I-Pace, their first electric car, in the first quarter of 2018.”


    Either way, we’ll likely see the all-electric crossover in its final guise at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, though an online reveal in a few days/weeks sooner also seems plausible.


    When the I-Pace will receive its world premiere, expect it to have just about the same technical specifications as the concept: 400 horsepower and 516 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters) of torque from two electric motors, all-wheel drive, 90-kWh battery, 310+ miles (500+ km) range based on (NEDC) / 220 miles (354 km) as per the more realistic EPA tests.

    Should you be in a hurry, 90 minutes of 50-kW DC charging will fill up the batteries to an 80-percent level.

    Jaguar I-Pace

    Earlier shown Jaguar I-PACE Concept (for comparison)

    As far as performance is concerned, the Jaguar I-Pace will run the 0-60 mph (0-96 kph) sprint in about four seconds.

    Magna Steyr’s president of vehicle technology and engineering, Karl-Friedrich Stracke, revealed after taking a pre-production prototype for a test drive the acceleration is faster (we think he meant quicker) than that of a Model X.

    For the sake of comparison, the slowest version of Tesla’s electric SUV is the 75D model that needs six seconds for the sprint, followed by the 100D with a 4.8-second run.

    Stracke likely had one of the two in mind when he made the comparison.

    We caught the I-Pace’s rather unique door handles in operation in LA last year (InsideEVs/Tom Moloughney)

    There’s no word just yet about the starting price, but in the U.S. it’s estimated to begin from somewhere in the region $70,000.

    I knew the I-Pace shape reminded me of something:



    Perhaps Callum is subconsciously recalling his childhood in the 60s, with the Landcrab.

    You are just so negative

    Instead of rubbishing Callum’s efforts to create a world beating, Tesla killer you should celebrate the fact that the I-Pace has already captured the “New Car Awards Winner - 2017 Design Award”

    Just imagine the sheer number of awards the car will get when it finally makes it to the streets and we can all see it
