Jaguar Putting Final Touches On Electric I-Pace SUV Ahead Of Early 2018 Reveal

Jaguar’s upcoming all-electric I-Pace SUV is entering final validation testing ahead of its global reveal in early 2018.

Jaguar has successfully tested over 200 prototypes of the I-Pace, covering 1.5 million miles and 11,000 hours of component rig testing and now says that we’re only months away from seeing the final production version at its showrooms.

“After 1.5 million global test miles, the I-PACE is ready for production and is proven to deliver long distances on a single charge,” said Ian Hoban, Jaguar Vehicle Line Director. “Jaguar’s first battery electric vehicle will also be fast to charge; our target is a zero to 80 per cent charge being achievable in a short break.”

Thousands of potential customers have already placed a deposit or registered their interest in buying the British electric SUV, with Jaguar having invited a lucky few of them to accompany their engineers in the final validation tests of the I-Pace.

For example, Ann Voyer from Pasadena wanted to find out if the I-Pace would have enough range to complete her favorite road trip along California’s West Coast and Jaguar took her on a long-distance 200-mile range test -between Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, and Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo- which was completed on a single charge.

Jaguar will announce the full specs and pricing of the new all-electric I-Pace SUV in March 2018, when the order books will officially open.
