Ownership cost

What used Jaguar I-Pace estate will I get for my budget?

The I-Pace is an expensive car new but there are plenty of used examples around. Expect to pay around £45,000 for a 2018 car in S trim with a reasonable mileage for the year and a full service history, bought from a franchised dealer. Up that to nearer £50,000 to £55,000 for a 2019 SE car, while you'll need nearer £60,000 to £65,000 for a HSE of a similar age.

How much does it cost to run a Jaguar I-Pace estate?

There are no fuel costs, of course, but a full charge will cost around £10 on an Economy 7 night rate, although as with all electric cars how much you pay for your charge depends on where you’re charging it. From the latest 150kW public chargers, it can obtain an 80% charge in 46 minutes, although this rises to 85 minutes from the more common 50kW chargers.

In our real range tests the costs for charging and running an I-Pace ran roughly as follows -

Miles per kWh: 2.6

Full charge cost: £11.87

Cost per mile in electricity: £0.047

Car tax

Annual road tax will be free, but you will pay a luxury car tax supplement, fixed on all cars that cost over £40,000 new. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here.

Insurance and servicing

Insurance costs will be on the high side, but that's expected given the performance of the vehicle. The I-Pace comes from new with a three-year/unlimited mileage warranty and the battery is covered for eight years from new, with a 100,000-mile limit. Servicing is required every two years or 21,000 miles, and generally costs around £200. However, the service required every six and 10 years is much more involved and costs considerably more since coolant, brake fluid, gear box oil and, apparently, a number of hoses need to be renewed.
