Lister reveals SUV-E concept, modified I-Pace

Lister has revealed their SUV-E concept car that will give their spin on the I-Pace.

Lister’s getting busy. Not content with turning F-Types into possibly the loudest objects in all of history, they’re now working on something that sits at the opposite end of the volume knob. Lister’s gone electric.

Given the company’s association with Jaguar, it’s wholly unsurprising it’s an I-Pace that’ll form the base of the Lister SUV-E. Unlike a lot of modified electric cars, this one comes with a performance boost, too. A ‘software update’ will up both horsepower and torque, we’re promised, though quite how far they’ll sit above the standard I-Pace’s 395bhp and and 462lb ft we don’t know.

Lister has divulged a four-second 0-60mph time, though, almost a second quicker than a stock plug-in Jag. Though the SUV-E will be 100kg lighter, at a smidge over two tonnes. That’s thanks to swathes and swathes of carbonfibre, every bit of the car’s bodykit made from it, with some regular panels such as the bonnet swapped for carbon too. There’s even carbon-ceramic brakes tucked behind new titanium wheels.

Keeping things in check beneath the new aero kit is a fully adjustable, lowered suspension kit while making sure errant pedestrians are kept from taking too close a look at that new bonnet is a ‘more aggressive exhaust sound’. Maybe this’ll be a riotously loud Lister after all.

“Whilst at Lister petrol runs through our veins instead of blood, we cannot ignore the interest in electric vehicles, especially as a low-tax company car offering,” company boss Lawrence Whittaker tells us.

“All Lister SUV-Es will be built to customers’ individual specifications, which include paintwork in any colour they like, a choice of over 60 leather colours and a can-do attitude where basically anything is possible.”

Prices start at 125,000, but end at the limits of your imagination, it appears. Given modified Tesla Model 3s are increasingly common, it’s nice to have a rival from the UK. Simple question, then: would you spend a six-figure sum on one of these?

If the C-Pace can be a smaller and more affordable version with Listers treatment, sign me up.
