As Jaguar continue to big-up their new i-Pace electric SUV we have video of the new I-Pace taking silently to Monaco’s F1 circuit in the dead of night.
Universal praise for the spec and price – and plaudits from industry designers for its innovative looks too – make it hard to see how the I-Pace can be anything other than a runaway success.
That said, perhaps the only cloud on the horizon, assuming all the love and plaudits for the I-Pace turn in to real orders, is how Jaguar are going to build enough cars to satisfy demand.
The I-Pace is being built for Jaguar by Magna Steyr in Austria, but it seems the capacity they have is for around 13,000 cars a year. Jaguar look to have had twice that number of orders – ahead of ‘official’ on-sale – as far back as September last year. So it’s going to be a bit of a dilemma.
But that potential production problem isn’t stopping Jaguar promoting the I-Pace, so we now get a new video of the I-Pace out on the F1 circuit in Monaco – where it was spotted last year in production guise – addressing, rather well, one of the main criticisms from petrolheads about electric cars – its lack of a soundtrack.
We see the I-Pace taking to the streets of Monaco in the middle of the night, silently flying round some of the most famous twists and turns in F1, stirring the air and slightly discombobulating night workers in the process. Or, as Jaguar puts it, the i-Pace Roars Silently.
