Already in production?

We're still waiting for the I-Pace's final reveal and Motor Authority says Jagaur is already producing them at Magna Steyr's plant in Austria! We'll see the first few in European showrooms before they'll go on sale in the States in the second half of 2018.

Maybe they're stockpiling the I-Pace in various configurations so buyers won't have to wait to long to get theirs.

That plant produces multiple vehicles doesn't it? I think the new BMW Z4 is being built there as well. I hope that's what they're doing though because there's nothing worse than having to place an order and wait 6-8 months for it to arrive at the dealership.

I'm sure I'll be tempted to pick one from what they have 'near' my desired spec if it means I don't have a long wait. If it makes no difference, then I may as well spec it to what I want/can afford!

I'd spec it to be everything I'd hope for in an EV unless dealerships have what I want in stock. The I-Pace is by no means cheap and I plan to own one for years to come, may as well get the dream package.

From what I usually see, the first few batches are usually fully loaded to appeal to more buyers.

Either fully loaded or base I would think. There are a lot of people who hate waiting though and those will be the ones to scoop up the ones on the dealership lots ASAP. I'm sure depending on how the allotments are set out, we'll have people going to different states to pick them up and bring them back.

No surprise there as Bolt buyers were going across state lines to grab one. The same situation could be seen with the I-Pace depending on roll-out times and supply.

I usually see the higher spec models make it to dealerships before the base models do, at least for higher end brands like Jaguar.

The wise ones will be those that don't jump in right away. Its the first time JLR is creating such a product and people like me are still skeptical. Chevy on the other hand already released the Volt about 8+ years ago, so confidence in the Bolt is that much higher. Anyone who plunges right into this is brave!

There will always be those who are willing to take the plunge and I salute you for doing so! I'd rather wait a year and give Jaguar time to iron out the kinks since that's usually when most problems are reported depending on the factory warranty.

You're definitely not the only one. I feel like the ones that plunge for the first ones are ego driven and just want to be "first on the block" with the new car haha
