Jaguar I-PACE Shines In New York – Videos

APR 1 2018 BY MARK KANE 11

Jaguar I-PACE enters the U.S. market in a bold way with a deal for up to 20,000 sales for Waymo’s driverless transportation service.

Waymo Jaguar I-PACE

We are not sure whether Waymo really will be able to order 20,000 I-PACEs within the first two years, but hundreds of Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid orders already turned into thousands for Waymo, so we’re not going to place doubt just yet.

For now though, let’s focus on the New York International Auto Show display where I-PACE was one of the stars.

Didn’t Google just say they were buying 20,000?
Isn’t that this years total production?

Sorry, Google is Waymo.
The only problem with this is the iPace is Not as Large as the Model X. It’s a great smaller CUV, but for taxi service, the Tesla Model X will be better, of course.

I’d love to see one in person – relatively if the Kona is the smallest, then the BOLT ev slightly larger, then the I-Pace, then the “X”, is the size of the I-Pace closer to the BOLT ev or the “X”? From the photos the I-pace looks like it isn’t too small at least…. Is it like halfway between the vehicles?

My question to all those people who claim that these cars companies will be Tesla killers.

How is Tesla threaten if they are only making 20,000 machines?

I’m not sure Jaguar claims the I-Pace is a Tesla Killer and personally I see more people cross-shopping the Model S than Model X. Really the I-Pace is a Model Y competitor – however Jaguar expect most of its customers to come from ICE cars – mainly people that have out-grown their F-Types and Porsche 911’s and want a guilt free performance car that seats 4 comfortably and fits European roads & parking bays.

Where does it say that Jaguar is only going to make 20k of them?

Secondly, where does Jaguar say they want to kill Tesla? Tesla are doing a good job of doing that to themselves.

The goal is a PROFITABLE EV entry that establishes an early position at the high end of the market across the global markets they compete in. They have to leverage their existing distribution and service network and get all the people and processes working, in a few years they can ramp up the EV mix vs ICE.
Tesla is just one competitor. Converting existing Tesla owners is not a viable business strategy, converting the vastly larger base of high end ICE owners and leased vehicles is a far bigger opportunity.

You have the us mileage range incorrect according to the actual jaguar site

For the love of Edison, can we PLEASE stop dragging Tesla into every single comment thread on this site???

It’s gone from being an amusing quirk to mildly annoying to very frustrating.

I think anyone who brings up Tesla or Musk in a comment on a story that doesn’t mention them should get a 24 hour timeout, at least until the community is broken of this habit.

Sorry, but Tesla is the only real competition. It’s totally legitimate to compare the i-PACE to the Model X.

Jag made a very nice me-too version of the Model X.
If they get the same range from the same size battery, but it’s a significantly smaller car, that’s a big deal. It means the Tesla is more efficient.

Finally, what are Jag’s plans for DCFC? Will they have a nationwide Supercharger network, like Tesla does?
