We’ve seen plenty of I-Pace spy photos, but this time AutomobileMag's spy photographer caught it exiting a trailer at Germany’s Nurburgring. For performance cars, this course is the test track for auto manufacturers with its demanding layout of banked corners and that notorious tight right-hand corner called the Bergwerk.

Jaguar is not shy when it comes to the I-Pace, there’s even a large decal with the hashtag #jaguarelectrifies on the sides and #ipace on the bonnet. With such fitted camouflage, we can see that the concept’s curves and creases has been transferred onto the production model along with its beefy grille.

Touted as a performance EV, seeing the I-Pace at Nurburgring comes as no surprise. Hitting European showrooms this year and U.S. in the second half of 2018, the I-Pace’s two electric motors should deliver 400 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels. If that’s not impressive enough, the concept can sprint from 0-60 mph in about 4 seconds.

On the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), the I-Pace’s 90-kWh battery pack should be good for 310 miles (500 kilometers) of range per charge, but those in North America can expect to see a more conservative EPA-estimated 220 miles (354 km) on a single charge. Still competitive in the current EV segment and it’ll be even more distinctive if Jaguar can deliver on their claim of achieving 80% charge in 90 minutes with a 50kW DC rapid charger.

Not surprised, the I-Pace is going to be a Tesla Model X rival and range alone won't make it competitive. The Model X has Ludicrous Acceleration mode and can get the car from zero to 60 miles per hour in around 3.2 seconds. That's fast for an electric SUV. Not saying the I-Pace needs to beat that time, but exceptional performance is necessary too.

The Model X with the ludicrous acceleration of the 2.9 second range which is the P100d has a price tag of $145k cash before incentives. The I-Pace I think will be more going against the 100d which is capable of 0-60 in 4.8 seconds which is in the price range of $100k cash before incentives.

The 100d would theoretically have an extra 50 miles of range though (based on information provided which isn't real world tested and proven yet)

Doesn't the 100D Model X have a 1-100kph time of 5 seconds? That's slightly slower than the I-Pace unless you go for the P100D model, but that's way outside of the I-Pace's price range.

Had a look at the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 and just about everything on it was impressive. That has me thinking how an I-Pace SV will look and perform. Not expecting anything as crazy as that XE SV, but just a product that can top the Tesla Model X 100D :D
