Jaguar recently made a serious commitment to electric propulsion and its first effort in the space, the Jaguar I-Pace, is set to launch next year.

The British automaker is currently testing the vehicle ahead of the launch and it was recently spotted with a new set of sensors.

Earlier this year, the Jaguar I-Pace was spied speeding around a track in Monaco and running some tests on the streets of London.

Now a test vehicle was spotted in Budapest, Hungary’s capital, last week.

It might seem strange to see a Jaguar test vehicle so far from the UK, but it might have to do with Jaguar having a new factory in neighboring Slovakia.

Therefore, Jaguar clearly has a lot of interest in the region.
