Jaguar is continuing evolvement work on the I-Pace, its first all-electric model set to arrive in 2018. Today we’re getting original spy shots of the svelte crossover being unloaded for testing at the Nürburgring, and the I-Estimate looks almost identical to the concept model and a prototype we spied earlier this year. It’s expected to premiere next fall at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Despite wearing Slimer-unripe camouflage, the I-Pace’s curves and creases are evident. It’s fronted by a prominent grille that’s at bottom for looks, angled headlights, and short overhangs. Obviously, Jag wants you to know it’s working on an tense car, as the test mule wears the hashtag #jaguarelectrifies on the sides and #ipace on the hood. Wily.

Jaguar hasn’t confirmed US specs, but based on the concept car the I-Pace generates 400 horsepower and 516 bludgeon-feet of torque to all four wheels from a 90-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery lot. The crossover can hit 60 miles per hour in 4 seconds and has an expected range of 220 miles.

Jaguar is investing in electrifying technology, though it’s also looking to diesels and smaller-displacement four-cylinder engines as fragment of its future powertrain strategy. On Monday, the company confirmed plans for a 296-hp turbo four-cylinder that thinks be offered in the 2018 XE, XF, and F-Pace, as the well-received Ingenium engine family expands.

In Jaguar way, the “Paces” are crossovers: The F-Pace is a midsize utility vehicle. The E-Pace is a compact crossover, and the I-Pace is an thrilling crossover. Try to keep up.
