Formula E excitement intensifies in late 2018 with arrival of Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series

Soon, production-based electric cars could now race against each other on the circuits against the background of the FIA Formula E Championship, which is considered as the pinnacle of electric vehicle motorsports in the world. However, this new all-electric series will only be exclusive to Jaguar’s I-PACE race cars, as launched by Jaguar Racing.

Dubbed as the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY, this new all-electric race series is the first international championship in the world for production-based electric cars. As the support series for the Formula E Championship, the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series will be held on the same city circuits on the same weekend schedules. Just like the Formula E Championship, the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY will be a 10-race series to be held in cities like Hong Kong, New York, Paris, Rome and Sao Paolo.

The first event of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series will commence in late 2018, or at the start of season five of the Formula E. To note, Jaguar became the first premium manufacturer to take part in the FIA Formula E Championship in 2016.

Jaguar I-Pace is already in production

We first saw the Jaguar I-Pace Concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show last year, and it seemed to have gotten the interest of a lot of people. Now, there have been reports going around that the electric SUV has reached the production line, and it may be ready to make a debut later this year.

Jaguar’s I-Pace is set to compete with Tesla’s Model X, and according to Automotive News, production has already begun at their plant in Austria. The first few examples are currently being built by Magna Steyr, a vehicle manufacturing division of Magna International, the Canadian supplier. By the third quarter of this year, the first few models shall make their debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show. However, US residents will have to wait until the second half of 2018, for a second generation I-Pace.

The reason why Magna Steyr has a significant role in this project is because they have been given consent by Jaguar. Freidrich Stracke, president of vehicle technology and engineering of Magna Steyr said: “we were invited very early in the product development time frame in order to provide our process and manufacturing engineering proposals”. He also said to Automotive News that they “tried to include the right processes in the vehicle early on. We did it for every function - body exterior, drivetrain, body interior, body in white, paint. We did this with all functions and optimized the design”.

2018 Jaguar I-Pace could debut in Frankfurt

The Jaguar I-Pace has been getting a lot of attention since the concept made its debut at last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. And just a few months following its debut, it went all the way to Geneva with a new wardrobe. Along the change of look was a number of teasers released by the company.

Is this some kind of a clue that the I-Pace is entering production? Well, according to rumours lately, a production model of the electric SUV is scheduled to attend the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show this autumn. Now, who isn’t excited for that?

According to Ian Callum, Design Chief of Jaguar, the production model should retain 80 percent of the concept’s styling and design. So we should expect minimal changes in terms of the look of the car. Furthermore, the near production model shows a sloped rear and an aggressive fascia similar to the concept we saw in some of the spy shots.

Jaguar I-Pace Concept shows its Photon Red color on the streets of London

It shouldn’t be a surprise to you that most of us are talking about concept cars just a week after the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. In fact, some of you have probably heard of the Jaguar I-Pace, as it made its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2016.

Just four months after it was first announced by Jaguar as its first electronic vehicle, the first ever I-Pace was already spotted hitting the streets of London. This time, in striking Photon Red paint. This one’s a head-turner. But don’t get too excited. The firm just decided to take its all-electric crossover out for a photo shoot. The I-Pace will be built in Austria and is targeted to be launched in the second half of 2018. That’s only about 15 months from now.

And why is this car doing a photo shoot in London? First off, it doesn’t look like Jaguar’s current model range. It’s chunkier and has a wider stance, and has got a low and sleek hatchback silhouette. It’s still beautiful nevertheless. But other than having a beautiful exterior design, the designers gave it a minimalistic cabin, for a change. Some say that the interior resembles that of the new Range Rover Velar, giving it a high-tech look.

As expected, a number of major carmakers are on full force in unveiling their new concept vehicles at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. Of course, these concepts are just show cars aimed at telling the public that the auto companies are cooking something good and interesting.

Usually, concepts preview upcoming models. Sometimes, they are just design or technology studies. At times, concepts are used to gauge the interest of a public on a certain model.

Whatever carmakers intend for their concepts, these show cars are usually a sight to behold. Here are five concepts that we think are noteworthy of mentioning.

Jaguar revealed that it will be showing off its new I-PACE Concept during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show on March 7 and it will come in the Photon Red color. This sports crossover is the first electric model to come from the brand and is expected to go head-to-head with the Model X from Tesla.

According to Jaguar, powering the I-PACE are two electric motors which have been placed on each of its axles. Combined output is estimated at 400 hp with peak torque of 516 lb.-ft. (700 Nm). Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 96 km/h) is possible in 4 seconds. Meanwhile, the maximum driving range is around 310 miles (500 km).

In a statement, Design Director Ian Callum revealed that this concept car is different from the typical electric vehicles already available. He described its design as being clearly ahead of its time as it not only shows emotions but brings with it an attitude that is ready for the future. It is the result of using the genuine design language of the brand and then complementing it with British craftsmanship and adding in the use of premium details, he continued. Callum said further that this is not simply a concept car anymore as it is also serves as a look into the five-seat production car that Jaguar expects to put on sale by 2018. Given that this is the first EV to come from the brand, he said, it also marks the beginning of a new page in Jaguar’s history.

Nearly all details have been set with regards to the upcoming market introduction of the new Jaguar I-Pace. Its production version was recently previewed at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. For one, production of the new Jaguar I-Pace has been left in the hands of a contract manufacturer in Austria. However, that does not mean that such a project would only be beneficial to the Austrian labor force. After all, the new Jaguar I-Pace all-electric SUV could still bring a lot of benefits to the workforce in the United Kingdom.

Jaguar Land Rover chief executive Ralf Speth recently revealed that contract manufacturer Magna Steyr is going to build the new Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV in Graz, Austria. This was after Jaguar Land Rover signed Magna Steyr in 2015 to build two of its future models. At the time, the Jaguar Land Rover had yet to disclose which vehicles would be built by Magna, but Speth’s recent words confirmed that the new Jaguar I-Pace would be one of the two vehicles to be built by Magna.

Generally, the name of the game for the Jaguar I-Pace in the UK is local infrastructure. Speth remarked during an industry event that Jaguar Land Rover might assemble some units of the Jaguar I-Pace in the West Midlands. Not only that, Jaguar Land Rover would like to double overall local production from 500,000 to a million cars annually by the end of the decade. However, all of these depend on the willingness of the government to invest in surrounding infrastructure to allow carmakers like Jaguar Land Rover to set up new production sites, especially for electric vehicles. The Financial Times reported that Speth pegged the government investment at around £450 million (about $561.7 million). Jaguar Land Rover assembled around 490,000 vehicles from its production lines in the UK, according to The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

Barely a week after Jaguar unveiled a production preview of its all-electric performance sports utility vehicle – the new Jaguar I-Pace Concept – at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, further details were revealed.

Jaguar Land Rover chief executive Ralf Speth told Automotive News Europe in an interview that contract manufacturer Magna Steyr will build the new Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV at its production facilities in Graz, Austria. It can be remembered that Jaguar Land Rover, in 2015, entered an agreement to contract Magna Steyr to build two of its future models.

At the time, the British carmaker had yet to reveal which vehicles would be built by Magna. However, it was widely expected that one of these future models would be the fifth-generation Land Rover Discovery and an electric vehicle. Speth’s words confirmed that the new Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV would be one of the two vehicles to be built by Magna, but did not confirm the identity of the second model.

While Tesla remains to have a strong presence in the electric vehicles segment with its Model X variants, Jaguar revealed that it hopes the I-Pace crossover will serve as a true alternative to Tesla’s models. Set to be released to the U.S. market in 2017, the I-Pace Concept made its official debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Having an electric motor not only on the front axle but on the rear axle as well, it has a combined output of 400 hp with peak torque of 700 Nm. Though truly impressive figures, it still may not have the acceleration being offered by the Model X P100D.

Still, that should not deter Jaguar especially if it is indeed serious in challenging Tesla’s position. One way to do it would be with the I-Pace R-S. A render by X-Tomi Design shows that it can be fitted with different components that have been utilized for the Jaguar R-S models like the black-out grille, a fixed rear wing, or larger air intakes.

Jaguar is throwing its hat into the ring (also known as the highly competitive electric vehicle segment) as it unveiled its very own all-electric performance sports utility vehicle. Dubbed as the Jaguar I-PACE Concept, this is by far the brand’s most visually arresting concept yet. The reason is that the brand took advantage of the packaging freedom that electrification has to offer and this gave both the design team and the engineering team the chance to examine the overall proportions of this vehicle.

With this concept vehicle, Jaguar wanted to come up with a SUV that was not only sporty but one that is useable and offers a large amount of space. By having a cab-forward configuration, the brand was able to offer a SUV that is more spacious than models that use internal combustion. Since there is also a battery pack in the middle of the axles, the design ensured a long wheelbase at 2,990 mm (117.72 in.) with a footprint at 4,680 mm x 1,890 mm (184.25 in. x 74.41 in.).

In addition, since there was no need to include a transmission tunnel, the design team was able to use the space for a storage area in the center console at 8 liters (2.11 gal.). Further, with no standard gear shifter, the concept car now has space where one can put in keys, phones, and even other small things. Finally, despite having raked glass in the rear, the I-PACE Concept continues to be able to deliver space for luggage at 530 liters (18.71 cu. ft.). On the front, there is also a luggage compartment where there is an extra 28 liters (1 cu. ft.) of space.
