Jaguar now has three SUVs in its line-up, though only the I-Pace is electrified.

Jaguar’s first-ever battery-electric vehicle will start at $70,495 – including delivery charges — when it reaches U.S. showrooms later this year, about $9,000 less than the Tesla Model S.

The British maker is giving the public a first close look at its first-ever battery-electric vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show this week. The I-Pace will soon join Jaguar’s expanding list of sport-utility vehicles which also includes the conventionally powered F-Pace and E-Pace models.

“We set out with a clean sheet approach to harness new battery electric technology with an architecture engineered from the outset to optimize EV performance, aerodynamics and interior space. The result is the I-PACE – a true Jaguar and a truly driver-focused EV,” Ian Hoban, Jaguar’s Vehicle Line Director, said during a media preview last week.

The new muscle king in the Jaguar line-up, the XKR-S.

For some folks, 510 horsepower just isn’t enough.  That’s why Jaguar will roll into the Geneva Motor Show with the XKR-S Super Coupe.

Its debut coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the launch of the legendary Jaguar E-Type, the XKR-S will deliver a whopping 550 hp and 502 lb-feet of torque, enough the maker says, to propel it from 0 to 60 in just 4.2 seconds – on the way to a top speed of 186 mph.

Details will be released at the Geneva Motor Show, but the powertrain is reported to be a modified version of the current XKR’s 5.0-liter V8.

“We expect to attract both loyal and new Jaguar driving enthusiasts who still want the comfort, opulence and class only a Jaguar can offer, combined with inspirational performance,” proclaims Jag’s new global brand executive, Adrian Hallmark.
