2018 Jaguar I-Pace could debut in Frankfurt
The Jaguar I-Pace has been getting a lot of attention since the concept made its debut at last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. And just a few months following its debut, it went all the way to Geneva with a new wardrobe. Along the change of look was a number of teasers released by the company.
Is this some kind of a clue that the I-Pace is entering production? Well, according to rumours lately, a production model of the electric SUV is scheduled to attend the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show this autumn. Now, who isn’t excited for that?
According to Ian Callum, Design Chief of Jaguar, the production model should retain 80 percent of the concept’s styling and design. So we should expect minimal changes in terms of the look of the car. Furthermore, the near production model shows a sloped rear and an aggressive fascia similar to the concept we saw in some of the spy shots.
Though the I-Pace may seem a bit smaller than the F-Pace, don’t get fooled because with a 115mm wheelbase that’s longer than that of an F-Pace, it actually has more room inside – giving it an extra 10mm more knee room than a BMW 7 series.
Similar to the F-Pace, the concept comes with a bold front grilled framed by slim lights with double J-blades to establish the brand’s design. The five-door SUV will have a coupe-like profile with sweeping lines and tapered waistline. LED taillights are squared off but it still follows the design of the XE, and XF models.
