Yesterday we reported on the final testing of the new Jaguar i-Pace as Jaguar work to sign-off their first electric auto for production by running production prototypes for 1.5 million miles.

Following the I-Pace concept's debut late a year ago, the British manufacturer says that thousands of potential customers have either registered their interest or placed a deposit for the production version of the premium electric SUV. During the test run, engineers managed to cover 200 miles from Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles to Morro Bay in San Luis Obsipo.

With a range of 310 miles and a 0-60mph of under 4.0 seconds, the i-Pace looks to be as practical as the Model X, its 90kWh battery pack is nearly as big as Tesla's most expensive option and, say Jaguar, will charge to 80 per cent in the time it takes to stop for a coffee.

"Jaguar's first battery electric vehicle will also be fast to charge - our target is a zero to 80 per cent charge being achievable in a coffee break". Performance, battery details, and pricing will be announced closer to March 2018 when Jaguar plans on beginning to take orders on its I-Pace. Jaguar had previously claimed that the SUV will sprint to 60 miles per hour in just four seconds, and deliver up to 516 pound-feet of instant-access torque to all four wheels. As such, the crossover will adopt very short front and rear overhangs, allowing Jaguar designers to maximize interior space and to keep the vehicle's dimensions within a normal range. "This will be Jaguar's first-ever battery-powered electric vehicle and opens a new chapter in the history of our legendary brand".
