All-New Jaguar I-PACE Makes Its Asian Debut – Live Images

APR 26 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 6

The all-new Jaguar I-PACE hits Asia as one of few “real” EVs showcased.

Yes, yes … we can only hope that BYTON succeeds and that many of these Chinese premiers make it to true production, as well as to U.S. shores. We know full well that the primary portion of our readership puts the “vaporware” radar on right quick when it comes to these huge, mostly concept-filled, auto shows.

This is true not only of U.S. shows (and perhaps even moreso), but also with the massive overseas motor shows.

Fortunately, the Euro and Asian auto shows do a much better job of showcasing what the future may bring, especially in regards to new, impressive, cutting-edge outfits (while the many U.S. shows avoid EVs). But, will these cars ever materialize, and/or will they grace our presence here in the states?

In the U.S., there’s CES and some of the California-based shows that bring light to such technology and newer entrants. Still, it’s hard to know what might actually happen and what might make its way to the U.S.

In our segment, we can’t help but be jaded by what’s been said and what’s been done (or not been done, really). Faraday Future … LeEco … Lucid Motors … We can only hope that Rivian Motors has gone about things the right way and will be a new driving force in the segment in the very near future.

Yea, it can get to be too much. However, the Jaguar I-PACE is one of few real deals in the EV segment. Not to mention, it’s coming to America, and sooner rather than later and has an actual price tag on it already. Check out InsideEVs contributor Tom Moloughney’s exclusive images from the show:

Cool. Is it TATA that owns them?
I just think that’s funny in that it has a meaning they probably were not aware of in English.

You do realize that Indians speak English, right?

Yeah, and Tata group is huge! I met Ratan Tata the second time I was in India (around 2000/2001), at a steel conference. I worked for a company that made rollers for steel mills (among other things) at the time. He was very charismatic, and was clearly intelligent and had a clear vision about the company and the growth potential. They made long term goals to gain knowledge and market share. They’re like an Indian version of Samsung that make a lot of different stuff apart from consumer electronics and high tech stuff like that. At the time, I only knew about their steel business – but was told all of their branches with business all over the place. I liked the long term goals they had. Not looking for quick profit, but to invest the profit and grow. At the meeting, he asked a lot of questions about quality, and the expected lifetime of the parts, and why our rollers had longer life then the one they used. Except for a Germany customer, he was the only boss that asked detailed technical questions. So when they started to buy Jaguar/Land Rover from Ford I was surpriced – since the… Read more »

Lucid looks like a serious company. Byton also.

I wouldn‘t compare them to FF / LeEco who lost most credibility.

They just need one more large founding round to start production….
