California - A year following the I-Pace Concept at the 2016 LA Auto Show, Jaguar is back in Los Angeles with a production prototype for final range and durability tests ahead of its official global reveal in 2018.

Full South African specification and prices for Jaguar's electric performance SUV will be announced later in 2018. 

Ann Voyer, a potential customer from Pasadena, California, asked Jaguar if the I-Pace would have enough range to complete her favourite road trip along California's West Coast. To answer her question, Jaguar engineers took her on a long-distance range test – on one charge only. 

According to Jaguar: "The I-Pace production prototype drove 322km from Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, to Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo, on a single charge of its advanced Lithium-Ion battery."


Ian Hoban, Jaguar vehicle line director, said: “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. Jaguar's first battery electric vehicle will also be fast to charge; our target is a zero to 80% charge being achievable in a short break."
