2018 Jaguar I-Pace: production car set for Frankfurt debut
The Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV concept made its European debut at Geneva but the production car will star at Frankfurt in September 2017
A production version of the Jaguar I-Pace will be revealed this year and make its global debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
The I-Pace concept was a thinly veiled glimpse as to what we can expect from Jag’s first EV and design chief Ian Callum has previously said that the concept is around 80 per cent production ready in terms of styling.
Based on a completely new electrical architecture, the I-Pace also presented Jag’s design team with a blank canvas thanks to the absence of an engine and gearbox.
Like the bodywork, the basic power and performance figures should also remain largely unchanged and Jaguar has hinted that it’ll cost around 10-15 per cent more than an equivalent version of its F-Pace SUV, so expect a starting price around the £55,000 mark. Jaguar is taking details from interested customers right now, ahead of the production model arriving...

Why would any other BEV manufacturer want to
"partner with Tesla"?Compliance car
production partnerships with TSLA didn't work out so well for Toyota or Mercedes...
