Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

The Jaguar I-Pace is priced broadly in line with the Audi E-tron and the Mercedes EQC, and undercuts the Tesla Model S and Model X, but it costs considerably more than basic versions of the Mustang Mach-E and Tesla’s Model 3.

Like its closest rivals, the I-Pace costs more than £50,000 so it doesn’t qualify for the £3000 government grant towards the cost of new EVs. But, like all zero-emission vehicles, it is a very tempting choice for company car drivers because it attracts an extremely low benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax rating.

Upgrading to SE gets you bigger wheels and additional safety kit as well as the Drive Assist Pack as standard, while HSE adds heated rear seats.

The InControl Remote app lets you warm or cool the I-Pace’s battery and interior remotely. It ensures the former is at its most efficient when you set off and the latter is comfortable enough to stop you from shivering or sweating. The energy required is drawn from the mains when the car is plugged in, and the feature is said to increase the range by up to 62 miles on a cold day.

Reliability

The Jaguar brand finished a disappointing 21st out of the 31 manufacturers surveyed in the 2020 What Car? Reliability Survey, and the I-Pace finished fifth out of the seven models ranked in the electric cars category.

Overview

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.

  • Big range between charges
  • Entertaining handling
  • Comfortable ride
  • Poor rear visibility
  • Pricier than some alternatives
  • Rivals can charge at faster speeds
