With the push for electrification, I do wonder whether or not the J Pace will release as a full blown electric or possibly a PHEV. If its truly meant to be a range topping model to compete with the likes Cayenne, then electric tech will be useful in delivering more power and better efficiency. Hopefully by the time this thing comes to market there has been a decrease in the cost of electrical components as well.

Jaguar seems to be a brand that wants short term volume and application along with preparing for the future. JLR overall has what it needs to bring out more PHEV's, there's already one on the road, what's stopping them from launch more while they're hot?

I think the main obstacle that automakers are facing now, is the sheer cost and manufacturing time required by EV's. Though I expect the process to become much cheaper and more simplified in the coming years.

This is a good thing, with these added costs of time and resources it will force the industry to come up with smarter means of production. Systems that automate more of the process. Machine learning is the future and automakers don't have a choice.

Well the most expensive component of an electric vehicle is the battery, and we've already seen some significant decreases to the cost of those. I think more importantly automakers need to find a way to use less rare resources and earth metals for their production.

Ultimately it will come down to recyclable products because if it gets out of hand that will impact new car buyers.

Its a big challenge and one more reason why I support supercapacitors.

At least we are already seeing some automakers repurposing old EV components. Nissan has used old Leaf batteries to power stadiums and BMW has just announced they will be utilizing old i3 batteries for superchargers.

Thankfully some issues work themselves out. Cost of disposing EV batteries aren't cheap. When a company finds more efficient ways of managing funds, and recycling batteries is one classic case of that. But of course that's only possible with todays volume of EV's compared to a decade ago.
