JAGUAR ELECTRIC CAR STRATEGY IN THE NEWS
Week 30 2018 - Jaguar I-Pace delivery delays
Electrek.co reported that some clients that placed pre-orders for the Jaguar i-Pace EV received notifications that their deliveries are delayed between three and four months. On inquiry Jaguar gave the following response to Electrek:
“In some instances individual customers may have been informed of a delay regarding their order. This will be due to prioritisation of market specific orders to best meet the exceptional demand. After the su Save ccessful launch of I-PACE, Jaguar’s all-electric performance SUV, production is now focussed on meeting the exceptional customer demand. Since launch, we have confirmed that customer deliveries will be taking place from late summer of this year and this is still the correct timeline.”
The exceptional customer demand is more proof of a healthy appetite for pure electric vehicles, contrary to auto executives always finding the excuse that there is limited customer demand for EVs which is seen as a niche product by them.
