Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Jaguar I-Pace estate?

Inspect the bodywork for any scuffs and dents – these might be expensive to fix – and the alloy wheels for any damage caused by striking the kerb. It’s also worth checking the electrical toys, including the rear tailgate, to make sure all are operational.

What are the most common problems with a used Jaguar I-Pace estate?

Friction brakes

This recall relates to the friction brakes (ie, not the regenerative brakes that most EVs have to slow the vehicle down whilst also recuperating energy to put back into the battery) because these may not comply with current vehicle braking regulations. It applies to I-Paces built from 23 August 2017 until 11 April 2019, and requires a software update to be performed at a Jaguar dealer.

Is a used Jaguar I-Pace estate reliable?

In a break from Jaguar tradition, the I-Pace is actually fairly reliable when judged against its fellow EV competitors, according to the latest What Car? Reliability data. It certainly has fewer niggly issues of the kind that continue to plague its key rival, the Tesla Model S.

If you would like to see the full reliability list for executive cars, head to the What Car? Reliability Survey pages for more information.
