You prefer small wheels?

The I Pace is truly lovely. If they could do for it what Lexus did with the LC500, they would have a winner. DO NOT water down the design.

I'm torn. It's interesting and progressive. But there's something really off about it. It looks like the cab has sunken into the beltline. It's not a typical bubble shape which I like, but I think there's some awkwardness it hasn't resolved proportionally.

Also, why does it have a conventional grille? Yes, Jaguar has a nice corporate face, but it's useless on an EV. I would have been more impressed if they tried something new.

The battery pack is liquid cooled so there is a radiator behind there.

Plus Jaguar are still a very small producer in worldwide terms so in many emerging markets they need brand recognition. So I think to use the same grill as all there other vehicles makes sense at this stage .... heck the rest of the vehicle is pretty out there (i.e. non standard Jaguar fare)

I understand the production car will have 22" wheels.

BTW I think its utterly gorgeous.

In Geneva, we see a red one; The lack of blue detailing somehow makes it nearly llook like a production car:

That could be something that suddenly makes Jaguar's sales less laughably bad in the USA. Great look with loads of potential to find garages.

The F-Pace does that.

Sorry, but the sales numbers simply do not show that. It is selling at a fraction of the comparable Mercedes and BMW models.
