For those who are trying out different options on the configurator, let's talk about what our possible orders might look like.

Here's an SE I spec'd up last night when I was getting a bit bored with that launch presentation....
https://build.jaguar/5CC7FD06
....came to just under £75k with the few options I added . . even if I dropped the spec to the S variant it would still come in at just over £70k, it's more than I was expecting quite honestly and I'm going to have to think quite hard about it before I pull the pin and go all electrified :)

I love the look of the 5056 22" wheels, even though they're my most expensive addition, but I was a bit surprised to find there isn't an option to add a tow bar, wonder why, or did I miss something...

Me too. My spec was £74K. Too much for me, so I'm seriously re-considering.
Tempted, but too many other cars for £50K out there, leaving £15K or so for a BMW i3.
I hoped beyond hope it would be £60K all up, but the Velar I was considering had the same problem, so expected this really.
I can't justify it, though I could afford it. There will be all the customers Jaguar needs, but there must be quite a few like me - not tyre kickers, just pragmatic and head before heart.

@ Catwoman

No towing allowed apparently. The Model X has a tow option, and apparently does it very well with a 30% reduced range.
That alone leaves me needing two vehicles, which refocuses one's thinking. There will be plenty who have this stunning car as a second vehicle, but I can't justify it.

I now have 4 "builds" which i can't decide between, and I wanted to get in early.

All are too expensive really, even when applying serious man maths.

Is anyone else thinking about the figures and doubting based on comparisons back in ICE world?.... I'm in fully loaded Macan Turbo / RS4 Avant / RRS territory, for a car that makes no noise - that makes me nervous too :)

Man maths:

1. The IPACE will cost £6000 less on 'fuel' based on 40,000 miles over three years, compared to a RRS diesel.
2. The Vehicle Excise Duty for a RRS will be £2500 more over three years.
3. The IPACE will benefit from the government grant of £4,500
4. You only live once.

So, if planning to own for 3 years, deduct £13,000 from the list price, then compare that against the RRS/RS4/Macan Turbo...... (and don't forget No. 4)

You're welcome 😉

PaulJ I am so tempted but wnat to see it first and test drive it before I make any rash decision on whether to go ahead my current car is only a year old but feel EV is the best way to go for me as still have my Model 3 reservation, decisions, decisions, decisions

Ha, cheers Paul. You should be a Jag Dealer, you have me convinced!

It is with great sadness that I can not make the Ipace work for me. £4K for the wheels and we are looking around £75k-£80k.

Even with the running costs taken into account my major worry is spending so much money and the car becoming obsolete as soon as 'double density' or new charge technology become available in the coming years.

For me I will request my deposit back and will not look at alternative car..need to move to plan b.

This sounds like another job for Man Maths.

Seriously though, i do feel your pain, but it might be worth holding on for the full finance options to become available - leasing is popular on EVs for that very reason, give it back after 3/4 years and get the newer battery tech without worrying abut selling it etc.

Cheers.. yes I know the maths got the better of me..however to pay £10k deposit and £1,000 per month for 36 months and APR of around 6% and hand the car back just never adds up for me, you've had an outlay if £46k for something you never own and a PCP you cannot get out of....appreciate that this is all new to me as I have always owned my cars. Appreciate that buying a car and selling it after 3 years maybe approximately the same..to me I just have a gut feeling that technology will be obsolete in a few years despite all the efforts jag have gone through. I would rather wait 3-5 years and once the larger infrastructure chafge points c400kw are being roller out.

Hi,

I am/was also concerned about residuals a few years down the line both because of battery advances and practicality concerns.

However solid state batteries are proving very difficult to commercialise

"The biggest challenge for solid-state batteries is getting their prices down to where they can compete with the incumbent technology. That will take a while. For many uses, but especially for electric cars, Whittingham says, traditional lithium-ion batteries won't have any competition for the next five to 10 years." (https://cen.acs.org/articles/95/i46/Solid-state-batteries-inch-way.html )

Tesla does not sem to have any problems selling current Li ion batteries so nor should Jaguar and EVs have to start somewhere! Technology always advances.

Whatever happens the batteries, I believe, are guaranteed for 8 years and should last much longer.

My problem with the iPace is that it is more X6 (coupe-like) than X5 (SUV-like) and that the canine won't fit so I'm waiting to see it in the flesh and to compare it with e-tron quattro (looks more SUV-like).

Cheers,
