The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace battery-electric SUV will arrive at dealer lots toward late November to take on Tesla's lineup, as well as future models such as the Mercedes-Benz EQC and Audi E-tron in a growing segment of fully electric luxury utilities. Dealers will begin receiving I-Pace demo models in October.
Jaguar Land Rover will host several marketing events to showcase the first battery-electric Jaguar model, starting in the San Francisco Bay area from Oct. 3 to 7 at the San Mateo County Event Center. The Jaguar Electrified Experience will then move to Miami to the Mana Wynwood from Nov. 8 to 11. It will move to Los Angeles and New York City in the spring.
The 2019 I-Pace will retail for at least $70,495, including a $995 delivery charge. It will retail in three trim grades, including S, SE, and HSE. The vehicle will carry a five-year or 60,000-mile limited warranty and a warranty covering the battery for eight years or 100,000 miles and 70% state of health.
Powertrain components include a 90-killowatt-per-hour lithium-ion battery that powers electric motors mounted to the front and rear axles. It's rated to deliver 240 miles of range and can reach a top speed of 123 mph.
