2018 I-Pace spotted in Budapest a few days ago with a weird thing hanging on the radiator. Overall, the car looks similar to any other spied photos, the only question I have is what is this thing on the front end about. Is it a battery sensor, three radars or video cameras?

I would assume they're cameras of some sort? If they're so precariously mounted, they probably aren't going to be in the production model.

I think that the front bumper isn't the best place for video cameras (especially for 3 of them), plus they don't need such a bulky housing.

When were in a time that car makers are pushing harder than ever to get self driving cars on the road by 2020 in mass numbers, odds are this is part of development for a self-driving I-Pace. Already there was a self driving Range Rover spied multiple times. Anyone here share similar thoughts?

I guess that's the most reasonable assumption. Even though Jaguar didn't make any claims about its self-driving capabilities, I think i-Pace is the most futuristic car in the Jaguar's line right now and we should expect to see something like this.

That must be some sort of sensor for semi-autonomous tech since it is a key area to have it mounted in aside from lower down or higher up near the rear view mirror.
