Notably, King Charles utilized the I-Pace for personal transportation and to chauffeur other royal family members, including Queen Camilla. The car stands out with its exclusive Loire Blue color, chosen by King Charles after repainting it from its original gray shade.

Delivered in September 2018, the I-Pace made history by being the British Royal Family's inaugural electric vehicle. It was stationed at Clarence House, an official residence in central London, equipped with a fast charger. The vehicle has accumulated around 4,800 km during King Charles's ownership and was returned to Jaguar in December 2021 after which it was sold to a new owner. The SUV went on to cover an additional 40,000+ km under the current owner, Karen French.
