Jaguar couldn't have made a bolder move with the I-Pace: an all-electric SUV & the first credible rival to Tesla’s premium EV dominance.
This is the most high-tech Jaguar ever produced, featuring a fully-electric powertrain fitted with 2 electric motors. It is also Jaguar’s first vehicle to include the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, capable of over-the-air software updates, & uses artificial intelligence to adapt to a driver’s personal preferences, ensuring driving & infotainment settings are matched to each individual using the car.
The 2020 Jaguar I-Pace is offered in just 1 SUV bodystyle but 3 trim levels, S, SE & HSE. All 3 use the same 90-kWh battery & 394-horsepower all-wheel-drive electric powertrain, with up to 234 miles of range.
This Jaguar boasts impressive performance, with good cornering abilities & an adaptive suspension that can raise the SUV for light off-roading or lower it for better handling. While it isn’t the fastest or most opulent crossover in the class, the I-Pace is quick & upscale enough for most luxury-car shoppers.
If you like the I-Pace’s handling & power, but not its price tag, 2 of its rivals - Porsche Macan & Lexus RX Hybrid - are cheaper alternatives. The Tesla Model X is another rival for the I-Pace with a higher electric range at 325 miles, is larger than the I-Pace, & offers 7-passenger seating. However, the Tesla will cost you more per month. There’s no denying the Model X’s modern looks & impressive gadgets, but the I-Pace is the better & more-practical SUV overall.
“As vehicle manufacturers take electric vehicles more seriously, Jaguar is leading the pack with I-Pace, which offers fantastic range & performance as well as a stylish & spacious interior for driver & passengers.
“Every Jaguar feels like no other vehicle on the road. Moving to all-electric power doesn’t change this. Built from the ground up, the Jaguar I‑PACE is a pure Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV). Thrilling to look at & drive, the I‑Pace is the smartest Jaguar performance SUV.”
