- Jaguar Assigns Additional Production Of I-PACE To The Netherlands

Jaguarâs importer in the Netherlands expects to sell 3,500 I-PACE this year
Netherlands is experiencing high demand for high-end electric cars this year, caused by upcoming changes in BiK tax rates to a less favorable set up.
- Current BEV BIK tax: 4% for full price
- From January 1, 2019:
4% tax will be applied only to the amount of up to â¬50,000. The amount above â¬50,000 will be taxed 22%
At prices of about â¬100,000 (many Teslas and Jaguar I-PACE First Edition), purchasing by the end of this year will save you around â¬10,000 on taxes compared to waiting until next year.
It would explain why Tesla sales surged this year to 1,763 Model S and 1,242 Model X in the first half of the year.
Jaguar I-PACE starts at about â¬79,180 in the Netherlands (â¬103,630 for First Edition), which means that the savings are significant.
Importer of Jaguar decided to increase the number of assigned I-PACE from 2,000 to 3,500, which not only is a tremendous result (if those cars actually sell), but also would lead to a record year for Jaguar in the Netherlands (previous best for the brand was 1,427 of all models in year 2000).
