We’ve covered reports that Jaguar was working on an electric SUV before, and today Jaguar officially revealed their SUV concept, along with their name for it: the “I-PACE.” It’s largely modeled off of their recent “F-PACE” SUV, only Jaguar has taken the step of “electrifying” the design by giving it some future-y touches which are sure not to age well, but seems to be irresistible to automakers when jumping into the EV market.
While this design is still labeled as a “concept” – and as such, maybe Jaguar will tone down the “Tron lightcycle” looks a bit before release – Jaguar states that the car will hit the roads in 2018. This seems exceedingly quick for an electric concept to make it to the roads, especially for a company with no other electric models yet. But Jaguar has been signaling some seriousness about electric cars, particularly with their entry into this year’s Formula E championship. There are no timelines yet for regional availability.
