45 'Jaguar I-Pace' stories

November 2016 - June 2020


The Jaguar I-Pace is an electric SUV produced by automotive company Jaguar Land Rover under their Jaguar brand name. It was first released in 2018.

Jaguar I-Pace Review

We reviewed the Jaguar I-Pace in 2018 when it was released.

First and foremost, the Jaguar I-PACE is an amazing car and embodies everything great about the promise of electric powertrains. It friggen flies off the line on the track, can torque up 45 degree dirt roads from a stop, and most importantly feels great on the open road and city streets: quiet and smooth with understated power. It is luxury, sport and practicality all in one.

It is also a Jaguar. It looks beautiful inside and out with quality components and a unique design. And most of all, Jaguar should be applauded for bringing this car to market before competitors Audi and Porsche bring their e-Tron and Taycan.

But in all the rush to compare the I-PACE to the few premium electric vehicles on the road today, the inevitable “Tesla Model X Killer” moniker keeps coming up. While its 240-mile 400HP AWD electric drivetrain certainly screams SUV, its actual body shape, internal space and ride make it feel more like a sedan.

If anything, it feels closest to a Tesla Model 3 inside, especially with its glass roof, but that’s beyond a stretch. Jaguar has beautiful and tasteful buttons, knobs and a small screen while Tesla’s spartan interior UI is simply a large touch screen with two simple knobs on the steering wheel.

In his review, Seth was extremely positive about the car. Read the entire review to learn more.

In 2019, we were able to review the newest model as well. In his review, Fred was also generally positive about the car.

There’s a lot to like about the I-Pace. I think it’s one of the best-looking vehicles out there period. It is super fast and responsive and handles like a dream.

The range is going to be good enough for most people, especially if you plan to use it to get around a city, but I think it would be hard to take the vehicle on a road trip that requires more than two full charges at least until the non-Tesla charging infrastructure with over 100 kW of capacity becomes more extensive.

It’s starting to be the case in Europe but less so in the US, and I think that will be reflected in the sales of the I-Pace – though the US could eventually catch up with a few new networks coming up.

I think the I-Pace would make a great family vehicle as long as you are not expecting the space of a full-size SUV.

But that’s all if Jaguar can fix its user interface, which was a real pain to deal with, and hopefully, they can use the vehicle’s over-the-air software capability to fix some of that.

Jaguar I-Pace Range

In our 2018 review, we noted the model we tested was rated for 240 miles on a single charge. Current models are still rated for the same.

Jaguar I-Pace News

In 2020, it was announced that production had paused due to battery shortages.

Jaguar has been trying to secure more battery capacity, but it’s been slow-going.  They reportedly signed a deal for cylindrical cells with Samsung SDI in 2018, though they use LG pouch cells for the I-Pace.

In December of 2019, Jaguar pushed a software update that improved the car’s range by 8%.

Jaguar I-Pace Price

Jaguar I-Pace starts at just over $70,000. At Electrek, we’ve done the hard work of trying to find the best prices, though. Find the lowest purchase and lease price by visiting our dedicated pages.

Jaguar I-Pace Stories June 22

It’s been two years since Jaguar Land Rover introduced the I-Pace EV. Despite earning multiple design awards and decent sales in Europe, the electric Jaguar crossover has struggled in the US. The company also faced battery-supply issues. Joe Eberhardt, Jaguar Land Rover’s North American CEO, wants to use lessons from the I-Pace and apply it to new EVs, including the upcoming electric XJ sedan. But the path forward is not clear.

Jaguar I-Pace Stories October 2, 2019

In this post, we review the portable EV charging cords that come standard with the following electric vehicles sold in North America: Tesla (all models), the Audi e-tron, the Nissan Leaf, the Jaguar I-Pace, the Porsche Taycan, the Chevy Bolt, the BMW i3, and Hyundai (all BEVs). This review is pretty wild; the specs (usefulness) of OEM standard charging cords are all over the place. Some car makers gave a ton of thought to this while others clearly gave none. That’s concerning, because “electricity is everywhere” is a major argument in favor of EV ownership, but that’s only meaningful if you can usefully tap the grid.
