Welcome to the Jaguar XF Forum.
Keep in mind that Jaguar have briefed the media that the E-Pace, which will be built in Graz and China, will be a bigger seller than the F-Pace, built in the U.K.

The XF and XE which are built in the U.K. are struggling for sales because of Jaguar’s reliance on Diesel engines.
So I ask again:
Of course it remains to be seen if the Graz built E-Pace achieves volume sales in the absence of a Hybrid drivetrain and if the reliance on the diesel Ingenium continues.
If the E-Pace and I-Pace is manufactured in Europe and in China the E-Pace, F-Pace, XFL, XEL and no doubt in time the I-Pace are produced in partnership with Chery which volume seller will sustain the U.K. manufacturing plants ? Thousands of British jobs are dependent on the success of JLR and all the signs are that presently they are not successful selling sufficient cars in the U.K.
View the I-Pace in California and hear what is said about range.
Ann seems to thoroughly enjoy the road trip (video above) remarking. “It’s nice to not have to trade off considering the environment and wanting an electric car but also being able to benefit from the luxury of a Jaguar car and interior — you know, I think that’s very appealing.”
It seems there are people who indeed are waiting on the electric version of their longtime favorite motor car. Jaguar continues: “Thousands of potential customers around the world have pressed the ‘I want one’ button on www.jaguar.com to register their interest for the hotly anticipated electric SUV.
Not only will these customers be at the front of the queue when order books officially open globally in March, but a lucky few have been chosen to accompany Jaguar’s engineers as prototype vehicles complete final validation tests.”
