In EURO NCAP, the I-Pace SE scored 91% for adult occupant protection, 81% for child occupant protection, 73% for vulnerable road users, and 81% for safety assist.
This is done at 40 mph (64kph) as opposed to 35 mph for NHTSA.

Here's a quick anecdote, just slightly off topic. I was driving in the super fast lane during driving rain the other day and one lane over some siht happened, so a pickup truck pulled out right in front of me to avoid the guy in front of him and I was going way faster than that pickup. I hit the brakes, full-on panic mode. As is the case in these situations, time slows way down and I heard myself thinking repeatedly "Aw siht I'm going to hit this guy" and got closer and closer, all in a fraction of a second, still thinking "I'm going to hit this guy" and then ... no collision. My passenger had exactly the same experience.

The i-Pace has a very very short snout. If it had been longer I would have hit the guy. It's a psychological rear end collision avoider.

The I-Pace's safety features doesn't help one iota when you get hit in the rear. I got rear-ended a couple of weeks ago when it was raining. Structure underneath is intact but whole bumper needs replacing. I'm currently driving a rental car.

That's a bit scary considering how it can impact insurance rates given the burden it could put on insurance companies.

Unlucky for me I got rear ended by a Yaris. The body shop I chose, luckily, was on my insurance's network of pre-approved shops and also, Jaguar authorized aluminum body repair shop (apparently there's only a few of them)
