Have deliveries of the F-Pace started? I saw a red one this morning that was MH registered already and not on temporary plates as most showroom cars are. Seemed like a customer vehicle.

ACI reports that Jaguar India will be launching it's first-ever SUV, the F-Pace, on October 20th, and JLR India is planning the launch in a grand style.

The F-Pace will initially be available in 2 diesel options, estimated to be priced between Rs 65 lakhs - Rs 90 lakhs.

A 2.4L petrol will join the ranks in February 2017.

Quote:
Company sources say a 60-foot tall mock-up of London's The Shard skyscraper is being constructed on Marine Drive in Mumbai for the F-Pace release. The tallest building in the UK -- 1,016 feet, with 95 floors -- the Southwark structure looks like a shard of glass (hence, the name) and is a symbol of excellence in British engineering. Jaguar wants to convey the same superiority with the F-Pace at the India launch.

The base model will get the 2.0-litre 180hp Ingenium diesel engine, which recently debuted in the XF sedan. The other is the 3.0-litre V6, which puts out a lusty 300hp and 700Nm of torque.

Default Jaguar F-Pace launching on 20th October. Prices starting at 68.40L

Jaguar F-Pace announced to be launching on 20th October with bookings open all over the country. Nothing surprising here, the car will be brought by the CBU route and the prices and variants will be as follows;
1. Jaguar F-PACE 2.0 l (132 kW) Diesel Pure: ₹ 68.40 Lakh
2. Jaguar F-PACE 2.0 l (132 kW) Diesel Prestige: ₹ 74.50 Lakh
3. Jaguar F-PACE 3.0 l (221 kW) Diesel R-Sport: ₹ 102.35 Lakh
4. Jaguar F-PACE 3.0 l (221 kW) Diesel First Edition: ₹ 112.55 Lakh

The engine options are surely a let down IMHO and the presence of Luxtec (non-leather) seats in a car that will cost a minimum of 75L on road anywhere in India. More pics and details soon, attaching the official spec sheet for now.

Yo, those prices are crazy. 30 lakh gap from a 2 Litre to a 3 Litre engine? Like from 75 they shoot straight up to a 100. Even with the depreciating pound value, though i don't think it makes a big difference. Perhaps something around 85 to 95 would've been right. At 1.12 cr, i guess in the major cities where there are extra taxes and what not, it'll hit 1.5 cr on road?

JLR management has totally lost it, can't believe its the same company which use to plonk 5L V8s in E Class and 5 Series competing cars. Sir Ian Callum keeps mentioning "we are a sports car company" and there second home country's management is busy offering engines which can be easily smoked by its rivals be it on road or tarmac. Not to mention crazy pricing, it's frustrating

If you have the right product, with the right features at the right price, then you really don't need an 18m beacon to shout its arrival. Jaguar's Indian operations should really pull its socks up, and start local assembly, and provide really positive service back-up to really challenge the Germans.

So guys, I'm now officially banned by JAGUAR INDIA on their facebook page for a mere mocking of their #setthepace hashtag where I just said it's misleading because you talk about setting the pace but the engine options that F-Pace gets in India is the SLOWEST in its segment followed by a smiley. They are not only a mere British company but their social media team also give a typical British Raj experience

Do share with us what exactly you said and what went down. This is amusing, cause they don't infact "set the pace". All they set is new prices and break the barrier the germans had put forth with respect to pricing.

The only "pace" they set was the XF 5L V8 with their pricing. Rest all had average and/or below par engine.

I just inboxed them few suggestions, I'll just tell them all briefly -

1. Variant availability: Lack of S and R Sport models despite the fact almost all pictures on their facebook, Instagram and twitter are of either R or S models and sad part is unlike BMW's M-Sport these are not even optional by Jaguar India. This also includes rims. They don't have anything optional.

2. Super limited engine options for eg lack of 3.0L variant in the XF range whereas all its competitor has and lack of 2.0L diesel in the XE range where the major competition is by a 2.0L diesel only

3. Non-India specific information on the website, even if you click the contact tab on jaguar.in it will give you UK email address and even the factory tour in the Indian website is mentioned of the UK and if you waste your time messaging which I actually did they will simply respond please contact JLR India without telling you HOW?

That's all I said to which the facebook team didn't care to reply, later on when I wrote a mail to Dr. Speth I got a call from CRM saying it will be considered and details will be corrected which I'd like to point out - it did NOT. Atleast she was kind enough to listen.

The banning happened when they started the hashtag #setthepace, to which I just replied to one of the post saying "Dear Jaguar India, with all due respect, provide better engines in your cars or else the hashtag will seem misleading, the car is available with a 2.0L diesel which according to your own figures does 0-100 in 8.7 secs which is slower than everything else in its segment. Where are the good old days gone when JLR use to plonk 5.0L V8s in 5 series and E Class competitor or at least the 3.0L V6 with an emoticon and there you go, it hurted their ego and without any kind of reply I got banned.

The Jaguar F-Pace has finally landed in India. In an event held at Marine Drive, the F-Pace was launched at prices starting from Rs. 68.40 lakh.

The launch of its first ever performance SUV meant that Jaguar had to make it b-i-g. This included building an 18 meter tall 'Beacon' which basically became a landmark for the event. The event hosted Jaguar prospective customers and the media.

Narain Karthikeyan made an entry in the F-Pace where he drove it up a 20 degree incline ramp which was perched at 4.5 meters above the ground. This was later followed by an amazing performance by Shankar Mahadevan, though he didn’t drive the car, he decided it was best for him to stick to singing.

The F-pace diesel will be available in 4 variants:
2.0 L (177 BHP) - Pure - Rs. 68.40 Lakh
2.0 L (177 BHP) - Prestige - Rs. 74.50 Lakh
3.0 L (296 BHP) - R-Sport - Rs. 102.35 Lakh
3.0 L (296 BHP) - First Edition - Rs. 112.55 Lakh
(Prices are ex-showroom Delhi)

The deliveries are expected to begin from November 2016.

Finally the curtains were lifted off this R-Sport:

Narain Karthikeyan drove that Jag up this ramp where it stood through the event:

Some posing after the small feat:

Even Shankar Mahadevan was surprised that he was singing for the launch of a car. Nice of Jaguar to reel him in:
