  • Jaguar is releasing its first fully-electric vehicle, the I-Pace, in 2018.
  • The SUV is expected to start at $76,400.
  • Audi and Mercedes are also releasing electric SUVs in the next two years.

Tesla’s Model X is about to get some competition in the electric SUV market, as Electrek reports that European customers just leaked the prices for Jaguar’s first fully-electric vehicle, the I-Pace. The vehicle is expected to start at $76,400 and, depending on the features you choose, could near $100,000. This would put the car in the same range as the Model X, which starts at $79,500.

Take a look at the I-Pace and its features – which include a massive panoramic sunroof and 12-inch touchscreen – below.
