The EV320 was mentioned in the online manual back in mid 2018 even though it obviously couldn't be ordered.
I can't remember there being many details but I'm fairly sure it was still AWD.

I have always assumed that it was originally intended to be the base S model but Jaguar upped the spec when they found out what Audi and Mercedes were planning. I did speak to one dealer who was aware that it had been on the cards.

Interestingly if I attempt to book a service online it shows my Oct 2018 SE as "ENGINE SIZE: EV320".
Has anyone else noticed that?
Maybe you better get it on a dyno and make sure ;)

Interesting to know it was mentioned so long ago though - I genuinely had no idea until this thread that it was ever on the cards. Always assumed they would (will) up the power at some point, hadn't considered it going the other way..

I was slightly concerned that early cars might have been 'short changed' for power -
I don't drive enough fast cars to know whether it is as fast as it should be!
But It definitely says EV400 on Topix.

I doubt jaguar could afford the scandal that comes with short changing customers purchasing such a high profile car... high profile as far as Jaguar's first EV.
