Jaguar I-PACE Sets “Showroom Stock” Production EV Record Lap Time At WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca

Jaguar announced it has set a production EV record lap time of 1:48.18 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in its new, all-electric I-PACE performance crossover before the model goes on sale later this year and ahead of its display at the 2018 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion.

Piloted by professional race car driver Randy Pobst, the Photon Red 2019 Jaguar   I-PACE HSE First Edition tackled the 11-turn with no modifications whatsoever. Pobst set what Motor Trend believes is the benchmark for the fastest lap at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca for a four-door stock production electric vehicle. Footage of Pobst’s lap is available online here. More video will be available September 7 on the Motor Trend App and Motor Trend YouTube channel.
