I asked why they weren’t doing the car in British Racing Green. “No requirement for it”.

I think it would have looked amazing in BRG!
I also requested a standard Jaguar 'Sherwood Green'. As you can see from the signature line, I also failed.

I walked into a showroom today and was told that eiger grey will be replacing corris grey. However when I spoke to the leasing guy from the same showroom he said that its still corris grey and he does not believe they are changing it. Can anyone shed some light on this ?
I wonder if they've just renamed it (I believe to align with LR colours). For example, Glacier White became Yulong White (same paint code) around 2018.

Because all manufacturers make choice available based on most ppl choices to reduce cists. That's why u see a lot of Greys and so few real colours...
Look howany grey black or white ipace theoretical are 9n the roads compared to other colours and it's same for all cars.
Why bother with lot of colours when 80% of ppl choose black, white or grey ?
I pace FE photon red since 20.10.18

You are right about both greens. My last two Jags (XF and F-Pace) were both BRG and if it had been available on the I-Pace I would have ordered it.
Not being able to get a Jag in Green is like not being able to get a red Ferarri.

Meanwhile over on the "Jaguar Advisory Board" they have been discussing a possible customising service including paint colours!

Why on earth are YOU not providing a desirable range of colours for the i-Pace. - e.g. a choice of Greens and Blues, In these times, with URGENT need for environmental action, to not promote at least a couple of GREEN colour choices is absurd (Band-Wagon Overtakes i-Pace)!
Mind you, the choice of colours for All European Car Manufacturers is Dull Dull Dull and green seems especially rare!
Maybe someone needs to start an owners pressure group!!!
Good Afternoon JAGiAM,

Thank you for your post.

I-PACE has a similar number of exterior paint colours as other vehicles in the Jaguar range, generally 2 solid, 8 metallic/pearlescent, and 2 premium options.

The range of colours does differ from other Jaguars as I-PACE (and E-Pace) are made in a different factory to the rest of the Jaguar range.

I hope this has answered your question.

Should you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Many Thanks

Dan - Jaguar UK

For what it's worth, I believe Jaguar Racing Green would have been beautiful on I-PACE. I had an S-Type in that colour and it looked stunning, especially with light Oyster upholstery. Very disappointed in the very limited range of colours available on I-PACE. I suspect I'll settle for Photon Red, but would have much preferred a more metallic bright red such as Renault or Mazda do; or, better yet, JRG.
><> Looking at I-PACE for my sixth Jaguar; does that qualify me as an enthusiast? Currently 2010 XF 3.0D Premium Luxury, before that 96 XJR, 99 S-Type 3.0 SE, 07 S-Type 2.7D SE, 04 X-Type 3.0 SE.
