Jaguar I-Pace claims new production EV record lap time at Laguna Seca – ‘sort of’ beating Tesla vehicles

Jaguar is about to deliver the I-Pace to the US and in the meantime, it is having some fun of its own with the all-electric car on US race tracks.

The British automaker claims a new production EV record lap time at the Laguna Seca race track in California – sort of beating Tesla vehicles in the process.

I say ‘sort of’ because it can be controversial depending on what you consider a “production EV”. The driver can also make a big difference.

Jaguar put professional race car driver Randy Pobst in a Photon Red 2019 Jaguar I-PACE HSE First Edition with “no modifications whatsoever” and he completed his record lap in 1:48.18.

We reported just last month that a Tesla Model S P100D breaking that same record with a 1:47.62 time, but it went sort of under the radar because Lucid Motors was driving the vehicle as part of the development program for its own vehicle.
