Jaguar is about to launch the production version of its first all-electric vehicle, the I-Pace, in the next few months.
Now early reservation holders in the Netherlands have reportedly been given pricing and options by the British automaker.

The company had already revealed many details about the vehicle, which is a sport SUV equipped with a 90 kWh battery pack with a range of “over 500 km” NEDC-rated – or “a targeted range of approximately 220 miles on EPA test cycles”, according to Jaguar.
They are currently testing a fleet of “more than 200 production prototypes” ahead of its launch next year.
One of the main pieces of information missing was the price, but now we have a much better idea of it thanks to a leak from early reservation holders in Europe, according to Autoblog.nl.
The publication listed the different variants starting at 82,000 euros and going up to 106,000 euro.
Here are the prices per variant converted into USD and without VAT (via tech01X):
- I-PACE S: $76,400 – 18″ wheels, LED headlights, Meridian audio system
- I-PACE SE: $83,864 – 20″ wheels, adaptive cruise control, leather, power tailgate
- I-PACE HSE: $90,387 – 18 way power adjustable seats, surround audio, other stuff
- I-PACE First Edition: $98,773 – heads up display, air suspension, and sunroof
Pricing is expected to vary by market and therefore, this should only be used to give us a general idea.
The production vehicle with official pricing is expected in the coming months, while the vehicle should enter production in the second half of 2018.
We are pretty excited for the launch of the Jaguar I-Pace since it should be among the first of a series of brand new EVs from established automakers built to be electric from the ground up.
Until now, (if the report is accurate) the price was the biggest unknown about the vehicle. The company previously hinted that it would be reasonably priced, while others expected it to be competitive with the Tesla Model X and the upcoming Audi e-tron quattro, which is due around the same time next year.
With those prices, the vehicle is priced similarly to the base versions of the Model X, but the I-Pace is a significantly smaller SUV: 4,680 mm length versus 5,037 mm, 1,560 mm height versus 1,684 mm, and 2,139 mm versus 2,271 mm.
In my opinion, it could have been priced a little lower, but either way, it’s a welcomed additional option on the EV market.
