Review

The I-Pace is a compelling choice, whether you’re looking for an electric car or a luxury SUV. It can travel farther on a full charge than almost all its electric SUV rivals, and it's much quicker than many of them too. Add in a comfortable ride and plush interior, and it’s a great EV to live with. Even so, we’d point you towards the BMW iX3 if you’re after a practical electric SUV for the family, while the Audi E-tron is a comfier alternative with an even classier interior.

Upgrading to mid-level SE spec gets you bigger wheels and fully electric memory front seats, as well as the smaller, lower touchscreen. Plus, the list of safety kit grows to include a blindspot warning system and high-speed automatic emergency braking.

Every I-Pace has two electric motors – one powers the front wheels and the other the rears – producing a combined 395bhp. That’s enough for 0-60mph in 4.5sec, while a 90kWh battery pack gives the car an official range of 292 miles between charges. In our real-world range test, in which we use a mix of roads to give a representative figure, the I-Pace managed a very impressive distance of 253 miles.
