2018 Jaguar I-Pace - reader test team review
The £60k I-Pace SUV is Jaguar’s first electric car and the first true challenger to Tesla, but what will our readers make of it?...
Ten brands now have electric cars on sale in the UK, and the rest are in a race to join them. But the first to take on Tesla at the premium end of the market is Jaguar, with its new I-Pace SUV.
Propulsion comes from a motor on each axle, fed by a 90kWh battery, giving a total of 395bhp.
The I-Pace gets a 336-mile range on the NEDC test, while Tesla's Model X SUV quotes 259 miles in 75D form and 351 miles in 100D form. On the new WLTP scale, which is more realistic, the I-Pace’s range falls to 298 miles.
