Jaguar India no longer taking orders for I-Pace

Jaguar India has delisted the I-Pace from its website, which means the company isn’t taking orders for the all-electric SUV anymore. It has also delisted the F-Type sportscar, whose production ended globally last month. That leaves Jaguar with just one model in India—the F-Pace SUV.

The I-Pace was Jaguar’s first and only EV in the country. When launched in 2021, the I-Pace was the second luxury electric SUV in the Rs 1 crore bracket, and it set the segment going. The I-Pace was a rival to the likes of the Audi e-tron and Mercedes EQC SUV, but while competitors progressed with periodic updates, the I-Pace did none of that in the three years it was on sale here. The I-Pace continues to be sold in international markets but will be soon phased out before the next wave of Jaguar EVs arrives globally from 2025 onwards.

In FY2024, Jaguar sold just 31 units of the I-Pace, significantly lower than the segment leader BMW iX’s 738 units. The Jaguar I-Pace came equipped with a 90kWh battery pack and two electric motors that produced 400hp and 696Nm of torque. In our real-world tests with a mix of city and highway conditions, the I-Pace managed about 410km of range.

Apart from its stunning looks, the I-Pace was one of the most fun-to-drive luxury EVs, which was its biggest draw. However, it wasn’t as spacious, practical, or comfortable as its rivals, and a lot of basic equipment was an optional extra for a vehicle with its price tag.

As for the Jaguar F-Type, it was launched in India in July 2013 in its convertible guise, and was initially available with V6 and V8 engines. The coupe arrived almost a year later, and the more affordable 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine was introduced in 2018. The model also got a mid-lifecycle facelift in 2020.
