Jaguar I-Pace Wil Give Tesla Something To Worry About



Automotive journalists are starting to get their hands on Jaguar’s all-electric I-Pace for testing and Jack Rix from Top Gear Magazine thinks it’ll give Tesla a run for their money.

For a while, Tesla remained unchallenged in the performance EV segment and other automakers are now playing catch up. Beating everyone else to the market is Jaguar with the new I-Pace, a sporty electric car with appealing features in spades.

Mounted under a curvy, yet aerodynamic body are a pair of electric motors. With one sitting at each axle, they can deliver an impressive 395 horsepower and 513lb-ft of torque. That should be enough to propel the I-Pace from 0 to 60mph in just 4.5 seconds and top out at 124mph.

Keeping everything moving is a 90kWh battery, large enough to provide the I-Pace a total driving range of 240 miles per charge. The number is even more impressive at 298 miles if you were to go by the Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). Charging the battery pack up to 80% will take 10 hours if you’re just plugging it in to a home charger. If you can gain access to a 100kW fast charger, that time will be drastically cut down to 45 minutes.

What’s more, the Tesla Model X fighter is more affordable with a starting price of $70,495 before taking into account any federal and local government incentives.

One thing about Tesla is the lack of any racing DNA or serious luxury experience.

Will that come back to bite them in the >$70,000 luxury EV market?

I know it affected my choice.

Hello everyone, I am currently a Tesla Model S owner. I have an interest in the Jaguar I-Pace and I wanted to learn more about it and more about the Jaguar brand. The Tesla forum is full of fanboys that get insulted if I ask the question, I was hoping it would be different here.

I know what you mean. I owned a Tesla model X for a couple years and just traded it last week for the I-Pace. I'm only a week into ownership, but happy to answer any questions I can. To start, the build quality is so much better than my MX and I love how it drives. Not sure if you had any build issues with your S, but I actually had my first MX bought back because it was so bad and my second still had problems. My X spent so much time in the shop, finally got fed up and traded it. Also learned how bad it depreciates. I went to a number of dealerships and even spoke to friends that own and work at dealerships and they all said the same thing. It's one of the worse for maintaining it's value.
