Due to arrive in the coming eighteen months, the Jaguar I-PACE delivers thrilling Jaguar power and dynamics with zero tailpipe emissions, while maintaining the true Jaguar sports car performance, in the form of an all-electric, five-seat performance SUV.
 
Bruce Robertson, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover MENA Region said: “The Jaguar I-PACE represents so much more than another new model for us. It is the trailblazer in the global EV revolution of the car industry, setting the standards for other manufacturers to follow and we are very excited to see the I-PACE making its Middle East debut here in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
 
We are extremely proud to be part of this historic moment. The Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY is the first international championship for production-based electric cars and we are ready to show the world that the Jaguar I-PACE is the future not only on roads but also for motor racing.”
 
The new Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY race series will see 11 I-PACE eTROPHY racecars taking over the 2.495km race track, which starts and finishes in the ancient surroundings of Ad Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. The championship showcases the link between Jaguar’s involvement in motorsports, the development of Jaguar’s road cars and the future of electrification. 
 
The guests to the Formula E and I-PACE eTROPHY races will be given the exclusive opportunity to drive the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE for the first time and to experience its dynamic handling and responsive throttle through the Smart Cones driving challenge, for a chance to win two tickets to Jaguar's Ice Drive Academy in Sweden.
