Jag delivers first I-Pace in North America

The I-Pace was sold to a family in Florida.

Jaguar has delivered the first example of its I-Pace all-electric SUV to a customer in North America.

The first Jaguar I-Pace in North America was sold to Mark and Holly Pascarella of Lakewood Ranch, Florida. The Pascarellas are avid Jaguar fans, having owned several models -- including two XKRs and an F-Pace -- over the years.

"My whole family is excited! When I told my wife, twin 15 year-olds and 18 year-old, they couldn't believe we would have the first I-Pace delivered in North America, before the vehicle even goes on sale,” Mark said. "They couldn't believe that it would be at our house, and we're all just extremely excited to have an electric car and even more excited to have another Jaguar. We're a Jaguar family.”

The I-Pace is Jaguar's first foray into the electric vehicle market. The SUV's drivetrain consists of a pair of electric motors -- one at each axle -- with a total system output of 394 horsepower and 512 lb-ft of torque. Backed by a 90kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the I-Pace is good for an electric range of 240 miles.

The Jaguar I-Pace carries a base price of about $70,000.
