I-Pace headed for Australia

Jaguar is planning to sell the new I-Pace in Australia with or without support from the Australian government in the form of cash-back incentives, tax discounts or registration fee reductions for zero-emission vehicles. They're still selling the I-Pace in 2018 to those of you down under because their competitors are going to do it and they wouldn't want to be left behind.

Hey, if people want it, they'll be buying it regardless of incentives or not. Do they plan on adjusting the price it's going to be starting at down there though?

Aussie market was always primed for products like this much to the extent America is, car culture and buying culture for both those parts of the world are similar anyways. Will be interesting to see what Aussie buyers think.

Australia is one of the most expensive places in the world to buy vehicles that wear a premium badge and no doubt the same would apply to the I-Pace. Poor guys down under, especially if there are no incentives at all.

Elsewhere, the MSRP is lower and most of the Governments seems to be all for cleaner cars with incentives and rebates.

Higher end car makers do well in Australia so people with higher incomes that can afford these will be fine, it might just be those that don't make nearly as much that can't even get a base model.

Had to take a look at Australia's economy and holy cow they're one of the richest countries in the world. I can see why everything is taxed so heavily when they can afford it anyways. Maybe the I-Pace will sell like hot-cakes there with how unique it is and how little competition it currently has.

Yes, like many Western Nations they are right up there. Nothing is stopping them from having success with the I-Pace. I know with Tesla they were break even. But now the EV market is more developed, Jaguar missed some of those bumps in the road.

Jaguar is swooping in at the perfect time when people are actually open to adapting to EVs instead of a few years ago when people were extremely timid around them. I'm sure the I-Pace would sell properly down in Aussie.

IF anyone is interested, Dalia Research did a survey and found that 40% of car buyers will consider going the EV route. That's a lot more than what I was expecting from the global market. which means a larger pool of buyers for Jaguar.

40% is a huge portion. But from reading the bottom, they surveyed people from ages 14-65. Not too sure why they'd start so low in the ages?
