Curious:

I would expect the i-Pace to be selling like hot cakes ...

Production is limited to 20K units per year ...

People are still getting delivery dates "soon". Why is that? Either Jag have not taken 20K orders, or they can ramp up (which I have always assumed was not possible because unlimited battery-supply is not available)

I actually want the tax credit for 2019 ... hoping it won't be revoked for 2019 but I don't think it will and if it does I can pre-pay I'm sure.

I ordered it now because I expect a surge in orders once it hits the showrooms in the US

Well, hot cakes are tastier, and a whole lot cheaper than the I-Pace...

I don't think they've taken anywhere near 20k orders (excluding Waymo). My dealer is in Newport Beach, California which is basically world headquarters for tree-huggers, conspicuous consumers, virtue-signalers, and EV proponents, and it doesn't feel like even here they have more than a handful of orders so far. I too found this surprising, but I guess cars that cost $85,000 and can't go 300 miles without an hour-long fill-up are still a pretty small niche market.

That'll be it ... no one would buy one of those !!

The only big negative is the lack of widespread CCS charging. I can't believe that is, solely, going to suppress sales to under 20K units p.a.. Loads of people (if not in America, then certainly in Europe) never drive more than 200+ miles in a day.

Maybe the early-adopters all already bought Tesla, and anyone who would buy a Jag is from the remainder of the cautious segment of the population and want it to have been "proven" before they buy. My thought was that any half-Eco existing Jag driver would have snapped one of these up sight-unseen by now.

Good job its not all down to me!

I agree that many early-adopters already have Teslas. For me the differentiators that finally tipped the scale are entry-level pricing/reasonable option pricing, interior (less spartan), and versatility (off-road capability). RE: pre-orders, I'm in a tiny market that is flooded with Teslas (Carmel/Monterey) and I'm apparently #2 waiting, having ordered last week.

Yeah, that's another thing. Loads of people must hate the minimalist interior of the Tesla. Deffo should be more pre-orders for the Jag I reckon. Something doesn't add up ...

... if it turns out that Jag CAN ramp up, and are NOT battery constrained then bully for them

Thinking about it:

No on else ?? is using a 90kWh battery (Tesla are making their own), so perhaps battery manufactures do have capacity, until other Marques come online, and Jag can mop up all their build-capacity

Although I suppose a 90kWh battery is just "more little batteries" so still the total number of "little batteries" is finite.

Maybe Tesla are secretly selling Jag batteries in order to achieve the mythical profitability by Q4 ...
