Jaguar pushes back some I-Pace all-electric SUV deliveries by several months
In a recent report, EV magazine Electrek has revealed that British automaker Jaguar has pushed back some deliveries of its eagerly-awaited I-Pace all-electric SUV by several months. The Jaguar I-Pace all-electric SUV --- the automaker’s first all-electric vehicle -- is scheduled for launch this year.
The Electrek report is based on the information shared by some potential Jaguar I-Pace owners who are among the early reservations holders for the vehicle. The owners had reserved the all-electric SUV early because Jaguar had apparently told them that early reservations would enable them to secure the vehicle’s delivery by the end of 2018.
However, some of these early reservation holders for the Jaguar I-Pace all-electric SUV have now told Electrek that the deliveries of their vehicles have been delayed significantly. They also said that, as per their local dealers, the delay in deliveries is a result of some “manufacturing issues.”
More specifically, an unidentified source aware of the apparent issues at Jaguar has told Electrek that the automaker has a limited supply of Matrix LED headlights for the vehicle.
Meanwhile, according to the reason given by Jaguar for pushing back some I-Pace deliveries, the automaker has said that it is “prioritizing” orders; and added that, based on the reservation process, the vehicle’s demand is fairly high.
