Just an FYI that I was told by a reliable source that the next ship is due in to port on November 20th. Still don’t know if my car is on this ship, or not (but, I am trying to find out).

What was the build date?

Mine was supposed to be built on Oct 26, in Austria, I guess. So getting to and then leaving Germany by the 29th would have been tough. Maybe mine will be on the next ship...

Same build date for me. Probably have to be a little early to make that boat.
After not being able to provide an update the past 3 weeks, yesterday my dealer (Jaguar of South Bay) was able to provide both VIN and name of ship. So, you might want to check-in with yours (if you have not done so recently)

We got our VIN, and I think it's on that ship. Super excited! Delivery by the end of the month, hopefully. This is a big time for car turnover. In addition to getting the I-Pace, we'll sell the Forester, probably sell the truck, possibly sell the FR-S, turn in the Spark EV, and buy a Pacifca Hybrid. Crazy. We might even have fewer than four cars for two people eventually!

Tugela is “out of range” on the Marine Traffic site (free version). So, I checked the schedule at Port Hueneme. And, it looks like the ship is not due in until the 27th. Not sure how long it will take to get through customs and then transported to dealerships and then prepped for customers. So, I am currently thinking toward the end of the first week of December.

Other than some major storm or mechanical trouble, I don't get why it would take a ship 4 extra days to arrive somewhere.

Best I can tell, it is arriving in Panama today.

My bad in that Jag engineering rep I know thought the Tugela was due in the 22nd or 23rd. It looks like McRat is correct in that the ship arrived at Panama Canal earlier today. Current schedule is that it will go through tonight. Assuming a 6-7 day trip from Panama (18 knots/hour travel time), it seems that the 27th is indeed the likely arrival.

Just left Panama this morning. MarineTraffic estimates arrival in Port Hueneme on 11/27 at about 3:45pm Pacific. Not sure how much longer we will be able to track the ship once it is on the open seas.

According to my salesperson, the ship carrying my I-Pace is arriving in Southern California today (11/21). He has no information on the port or ship’s name.
It is scheduled to be delivered, prepped and ready by the middle of next week. He has given me incorrect information before, but I’m hoping.

The Graceful Leader (vehicle carrier that originated out of Southampton) was scheduled for the 21st. But, it actually arrived on the 20th. Your car very well might have been on it.

There is a ship ID that allows free tracking. It is still off the west coast of Panama this morning moving 20kts at last report: https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/home/shipid:284624/zoom:10
Yep. That was last reported position at 2:01 pm Pacific (22:01 UTC) on the 20th. Not sure if there will be any updates via the free site until the ship is off the Baja coast. I’ll still be checking at least once per day, just in case. But, I don’t expect any new position reports until the 25th or 26th.

My I-Pace now shows a build date of 10/29, and at port of exit - in Europe, I suppose - as of a few days ago. Expected to deliver right around year end.
