Here's a link to the install guide: JAGUAR Accessory Fitting Instructions
Yes, since it is a European spec product, not intended for the NA market, it would require modifications to make it work.

Exclamation No hitch, No buying an I-Pace

Today I was getting ready to swap money around to buy an I-Pace. but first I called Palm Beach Jaguar and questioned about the T4K8031 towbar availability. They called me back after doing some research and said they could not get it. A Merriam Jaguar in the Midwest, also has it listed and discounted to $1800, but after questioning they also said they could not get it. An email to Lancaster Slough at Jardinemotors in the UK brought the following response: "Goodmorning, Unfortunately due to franchise agreements between JLR and retailers, we are unable to supply any parts or accessories to outside of the EU.". I further questioned if I walked in to their parts office with cash, would they sell it to me and he said no! I went on to the manufacturer of the hitch, https://brinkgroup.eu and they do not even list the towbar for the I-Pace, but they do have the hitch electronic connectors for it. I sent a complaint to Jaguar about not being able to purchase their hitch and them missing a chance to sell a 2019 I-Pace and they replied that my complaint was recorded. I had a nice I-Pace picked out to buy. I guess it will continue to sit, while I drive my Ford Focus Electric with a trailer hitch, waiting on the 2022 Ford Electric.
