2020 Jaguar I-Pace Price, Review, Range, Specs. Come 2016, and Jaguar has shown off its I-Pace Concept- an SUV that is loosely based on the F-Type but carries along two electric motors and a battery as its primary source of motivation. The SVR version will naturally be more aggressive on the outside, will feature some unique and race-inspired features inside, and will come with a decent power improvement over the standard I-Pace. And, since the I-Pace is slated to enter the market for 2018, the I-Pace SVR could hit make its debut before the turn of the decade.
2020 Jaguar I-Pace Drivetrain
The I-Pace concept showcased an electric powertrain system that was built in-house and made use of a pretty clever battery storage system. The I-Pace is said to achieve a range of over 500 km on the NEDC scale, but the EPA has yet to rate it. That power, by the way, is instantly available, which allows the I-Pace to make a 60-mph sprint in as little as four seconds.
Pushing out as much as 500 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque isn’t out of the question, which would make this a hella-fast SUV.
When it comes to an SVR branded model, it’s kind of hard to predict what SVO will do, but we could see a healthy increase in power. As far as the battery goes, the SVR-branded model could use the same battery with a reduced range (due to the extra power) or SVR could up the size of the battery a bit at the cost of a little extra weight and price.
2020 Jaguar I-Pace Exterior
Considering we don’t know what the full production I-Pace will look like, we had to look to the I-Pace concept as a canvass for our I-Pace SVR rendering. While we didn’t depict it in our rendering, it’s also quite possible that the SVR version could see its own unique headlight lenses to help set it apart a bit.
The overall shape and design of the body shell will remain the same, but we’re expecting to see a more accentuated air dam, and those recessed air vents may be spread out a little more and blocked off.
The side skirts could also end up just a little more aggressive, shown here by a slightly more dramatic twist effect at the rear. The wheels we’ve picked out for this rendering feature an intriguing and unique design and are powder coated black to help give the SUV a slightly darker appearance.
As is the usual case with our renderings, we didn’t dive into any real changes in the rear, but you can expect to see a spoiler like we’ve shown here. On the production model, this will probably be a fully functional spoiler that is active and could automatically change its angle based on speed and other conditions. Down below, the SVR could get its own unique set of taillight lenses to go with a diffuser-like element and a slightly more aggressive rear fascia.
2020 Jaguar I-Pace Interior
We’ve already seen the F-Type-Inspired interior of the I-Pace Concept, so you can bet that the SVR version will probably carry on largely unchanged. On a side note, the standard I-Pace probably won’t get those aggressive sports seats that we see in the concept, but the I-Pace SVR could very well get those seats or some derivative of them.
Either way, when you look a the I-Pace (and imagine and SVR version) then compare it to the EQ and Model X, it’s clear that we could have a little Battle Royale on our hands. All three cabins are unique and very inviting, while the EQ and I-Pace offer very futuristic cabins that are sure to intrigue new buyers. There’s a reason everyone says Tesla should be worried about the Mercedes EQ, and now it looks like Tesla should worry about the I-Pace and I-Pace SVR.
2020 Jaguar I-Pace Pricing and Release Date
The standard I-Pace is slated to hit the market in the second half of 2018, but pricing is still a secret. All-electric vehicles are typically more expensive than their equivalent fuel-powered models, so the I-Pace could start out around $50,000 to $55,000 in entry-level form. If the I-Pace starts out around $55,000, expect the SVR-branded version to pull in excess of $110,000 if not something closer to $130,000.
