British luxury automaker Jaguar Cars will unveil the production version of its long-awaited Tesla challenger on Thursday.
The Jaguar I-Pace, as it’s called, is a long-range battery-electric SUV. Depending on Jaguar’s launch schedule, it could become the first direct competitor to Tesla’s Model X to emerge from a global automaker.
That means it has the potential to be a very big deal. Here’s what Jaguar has told us about it so far.
What Jaguar said about the I-Pace back in 2016
Jaguar, which is owned by India’s Tata Motors, first showed the I-Pace in “concept” (show car) form in November 2016, at the Los Angeles International Auto Show. While some concept cars are purely flights of fancy, intended to show the future direction of a brand, others are close previews of vehicles that automakers actually intend to produce.
