    Jaguar has confirmed that it will bring the production version of its electric SUV, the I-Pace, to the 2018 Geneva motor show in March.

    The brand’s first all-electric model was shown in concept form at the 2016 LA Auto Show. The production model is expected to retain the concept’s design in most places, though there will be a slight toning down of the styling. The SUV has short front and rear overhangs, creating space on the inside for passengers while liberating room for the heavy battery pack.

    While the concept car was powered by an electric motor at each axle (providing all-wheel drive), producing a combined 400hp and 700Nm of peak torque, the production version’s powertrain is still not known for sure. As per Jaguar’s claims, the concept’s 90kWh battery could power the I-Pace for 500km on a single charge.

    Our colleagues at Autocar UK drove an early concept and reported the I-Pace was typically electric car-like with the instant torque masking the SUV’s considerable weight. They also said it felt quicker and lighter than its nearest rival, the Tesla Model X.

    While the I-Pace is expected to go on sale in international markets after its Geneva debut, there is no word on Jaguar bringing the electric SUV to India.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!

    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.

    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
