Jaguar has a change of Pace
Jaguar Land Rover’s first foray into pure electric will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March — if not before.
Admitting that the long-awaited Jaguar I-Pace was not quite ready for Frankfurt, Andy Goss, sales operations director, said: “We are very close to showing it, within the next six months.”
With rivals launching multiple electric models and concepts, Mr Goss rejected claims that his company was playing catch-up: “We are always sensitive talking about the future and we haven’t yet said all that we are going to say.” Mr Goss said that the new conventionally engined Jaguar E-Pace had every chance of emulating its larger 4x4 sibling the F-Pace, the bestselling Jaguar in the history of the company.
He indicated that Range Rover would not seek to challenge in size the BMW X7, the monster Frankfurt debutant, but said that the brand had the potential to introduce new luxury — and a higher price — to take on the likes of the Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
