"I-Pace SVR Will Be Game Changing" is a bold statement and that's simply because the I-Pace SVR will be a BOLD vehicle, everything enthusiasts are looking for. Come time for launch the following is expected. Compared to what other car makers have planned, this new SVR product will be unmatched. Here's a breakdown of the to be features:

  • near 50/50 weight distribution
  • prioritized handling
  • 0-60mph in just 1.8 seconds

It's a short list so far till Jaguar decides to release more. Once ready, expect to see it proven on the Nurburgring.

Hi
I have owned an I-Pace since January. A Jaguar insider has confirmed to me that they have already produced an I-Pace model which will do 0-60 in 1.9 seconds but at the time they had no interest in putting it on the road for general use. Watch this space...

Vaporware. It's nice to know that they're 'thinking' about it, but personally, I don't have faith that JLR will actually build an SVR version of the I-Pace. Would be nice to compete with Porsche and Audi with their (and other mfgr) EV's coming out in the next couple years. Not holding my breath. Until real plans, dates, specs, and expected price are to be released, it's just wishful thinking and vaporware.

They absolutely should build it. It would be a shot right up the nose of Tesla AND Porsche. Even if they lost 50k on each one, it would get them so much good press to have the absolute fastest non-exotic car available.

It was frustrating enough spending $90k on this vehicle and having the Infotainment issues/slowness and lack of software OTA updates it has (still almost 1 year after ownership). Imagine spending $130k+ on an "Jaguar I-Pace SVR" and having the same Infotainment issues? :( My I-Pace's Navi voice control still only works 50%-75% of the time...it's very sad. The car drives great though, lol! ;)

Imagine 0-60 in 1.9 seconds. Ah, but the infotainment is so slow!

Digging this up from the past.

On 24 November 2021, the TOPIx Daily Updates notice included "NAS21.11.011 - I-PACE SVR Process Update - Virtual Classroom" (bolding added by me)
Further speculation may now begin, or present more definitive information if you have it.

Speculation: Jaguar realizes that they need to do something to get the I-PACE back in the press and relevant. An SVR edition would do that provided it gets sub 2 second 0-60 acceleration to join the likes of other brands with cars that can do that. We should see it sometime next year. Part shortages might be an issue for achieving this as it is impacting production of all JLR models.

Silly wishful thinking: Jaguar produces an update for all of us that provides a choice of ECO, Comfort, Dynamic and SVR modes.

Not that I have an issue with the range or efficiency, but if Jag wants the I-pace to be a bigger seller it needs to increase the range and charging speed as these seem to be the most important specs to reviewers and prospective buyers regardless of how the good the rest of the car is.

When are marketing folks going to realise that making a new product that mimicks an existing product but with limitations is neither progress nor commercially viable.
If a driver wants a car with supercar performance guess what they"ll buy if they can afford it. If we are totally honest, none of us bought the I-Pace primarily because it was good for the environment otherwise we would be driving a Leaf or a Volt.
Compare with meat substitutes - ok, but not the same. Won't outsell a good old fashioned hamburger unless it is marketed as better in some way - perhaps the consumer's health?
Find something that is better about the product that the buyer REALLY cares about and you'll have a commercial success irrespective of any shortcomings like taste, texture, range or charging speed.
[Apologies for the rant, but the average driver doesn't need more range or faster charging. They need more reliability, easier use and cheaper upkeep/ maintenance. Give me an EV that ALWAYS gets me to work 5 days a week with no maintenance costs, no stopping at a gas station, that's easy to drive, and costs less than the alternative.]

Haha, good rant :)

I think all of those parameters matter. I have lots of friends whose first questions are about both range and cost ... just talked with a good friend who needs a new car or two in the next couple of years. He hates stopping for long on a road trip; it's a total deal breaker. But he also likes the low maintenance costs. All these things matter, to different people to slightly different degrees.

Individuals will always have different preferences, but you can't market to the individual unless you are going in the direction of Aston Martin, Bentley etc (supposedly JLR's new direction). It may be "unAmerican", but marketing to the masses (socialism) is the key to progress. You can't dominate the world with only a handful of happy customers, and new tech will not be adopted unless it appeals to the masses.
