Jaguar I-Pace makes transition to production with hardly any changes

It looks like Jaguar originator Ian Callum wasn’t kidding when he said the I-Pace concept was “a preview of a five-backside production car that will be on the road in 2018.” Based on these spy photos, the putting out I-Pace will look darn near identical to the concept.

The prototype seen over, in a unique and rather groovy green camouflage wrap, retains the swoopy cab-advance design of its concept predecessor. The headlights have the same shape and still clear back nearly to the front wheel wells, and the door handles are still delight mounted ovals placed low on the doors. At the back, the crisp crease marking the trailing sharpness of the hatch is intact, as well as the triangular points on the rear spoiler.

There entertain been a few minor changes here and there. At the front, the grille doesn’t be undergoing quite as much depth as the concept, and the base of the front bumper doesn’t suffer with as aggressive an air dam. The big heat extractor vent in the hood is also gone. The rear bumper has also been rounded off a bit more with a simpler backside diffuser. The side glass is in production form, so now there are seams that divulge where the glass rolls down. It appears the rear doors will receive quite a small glass opening, as the seam is roughly at the half-way point of the window.

If the mechanicals of the concept end up as unchanged as this metaphor’s exterior, expect the production I-Pace to have a pair of electric motors that wishes produce 400 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Jaguar estimates these last wishes as propel the car to 60 mph in about 4 seconds. The motors will be supplied with power from a 90 kWh lithium-ion battery, which Jaguar says inclination provide a range of 220 miles. With a target date of 2018, we would contemplate to see the production model revealed at the end of 2017 or early in 2018.
