The I-Pace is a fully electric crossover that's not to be confused with the soon-to-be-launched and conventionally-powered E-Pace in any way, the battery-powered I-Pace also boasting a sportier design and more upmarket positioning.

Jaguar's local product public affairs manager, James Scrimshaw, told CarAdvice the I-Pace is now scheduled to go on sale in Australia around October 2018. This comes just before the Geneva Motor Show, and the debut will be shown on a livestream.

The last of its testing took place at Jaguar Land Rover's cold weather test facility in Arjeplog, Sweden, at temperatures as low as -40°.

Jaguar will reveal the production I-Pace electric crossover in a live global broadcast on March 1, the same day that order books open. Hopefully more details will surface closer to the official reveal. The I-PACE will be Jaguar's first all-electric production vehicle, and has recently been undergoing Arctic testing to make sure its performance is up to scratch in ice and snow.

Further details around pricing and specifications for our market will likely come around the Geneva show, and in the lead-up to the I-Pace's local launch.

Though final specs remain unconfirmed, the I-Pace is expected to offer maximum outputs in the region of 295kW and 700Nm, with one electric motor mounted on each axle for all-wheel-drive capability.

With supercar looks, sports auto performance and SUV space all in one electric package, Jaguar promises to rip up the rule book when it comes to what drivers expect from an electric vehicle.
