Jaguar I-Pace Priced From $70,495 U.S.


Jaguar I-Pace

Jaguar’s EV will offer an estimated 240-mile range and the ability to reach 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.

Upon arriving in the United States in the latter half of this year, the new Jaguar I-Pace EV will start at $70,495 after the $995 destination fee but before any federal or state incentives. The stylish electric crossover will come standard with a 90-kilowatt-hour battery, and it’ll allow for an estimated driving range of 240 miles (386 kilometers).

The all-wheel-drive I-Pace will pack a total output of 394 horsepower (293 kilowatts) and 512 pound-feet (694 Newton-meters) of torque. This setup lets the electric crossover reach 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in only 4.5 seconds. Jag limits the SUV’s top speed to 124 mph (200 kph).

In addition to its sporty acceleration, the I-Pace should offer a comfy ride because of the standard Active Air Suspension. Buyers looking for even more control over how the SUV drives can order optional adaptive dampers, too.

Inside, Jaguar gives the I-Pace a stylish mix of technology and high-end finishes. For example, the firm fits its new InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system that uses two touchscreens. The one on top of the center stack measures 10 inches for handling work like navigation, and the lower 5.5-inch display is for duties like the HVAC controls. Amazon Alexa support also allows for voice commands to control some of these features.

The cabin is available in traditional upholsteries like leather or the new Kvadrat textile – a mix of wool and a suede cloth from recycled material. Brushed metal and wood trim add to the luxury.

As a fully electric SUV, comparisons between the I-Pace and Tesla Model X are inevitable – even if the Jag is a smaller vehicle. It’s too soon for any independent tests, but Jaguar’s own video suggests that the new EV offers performance on par with the Model X 100D, which shouldn’t be confused with the performance-oriented, quicker P100D trim.

At the Geneva Motor Show, it said pricing starts at 58,995 UKP which is $80,000 USD. What’s with the price differential? I mean, the British must be all bollocks and buggers about this price gap.

Not that I’m complaining as a consumer!

UK pricing includes VAT.

To put this in perspective, it’s around $10,000 less than a base Model X BEFORE the $7500 runs out for Tesla. After that the Jaguar will undersell it by around $17,000!

Because it’s the size of a class of vehicle that Tesla doesn’t make yet — Tesla Model Y. Your comparison is like saying the Toyota Rav4 is less money than the Toyota 4 Runner. So… yeah. No kidding.

The I-Pace has the interior room of a Porsche Cayenne (exterior dimensions of a Macan), so it’s only slightly smaller than a Model X and MUCH easier to maneuver and park!

Said someone who has had a chance to try and park both EVs in a comparison test?

Nice song and dance, keep up the I-Pacing, Mick Jagguar.

And the Model X has more interior room than a Cayenne with ability to sit 7 adults.

“so it’s only slightly smaller than a Model X”

It’s so slightly smaller than the Model X that it’s even smaller than the Model S. It has more headroom but less front and back leg room, hip and shoulder room and less cargo capacity than the Model S.

And marketing something by calling it an “SUV” doesn’t make it one. The i-Pace is really just a 5-seat hatch like the Model S.

In fact the Model S which comes standard with air suspension has a ground clearance range of 4.8″-6.4″. The i-Pace ground clearance? 5.6″

So the Model S75D is only about $3,000 more but is quicker, has 20 miles more range, has more interior and cargo space, has a nationwide Supercharger network with 400kWh of free fuel annually and has autopilot.

The Model X should NOT be compared to the i-Pace simply because Jag says so. It seats up to 7 and has by far much more leg room, head room, hip and shoulder room, cargo capacity and has a greater ground clearance.

^Thank you. I believe it. It helps explain why some go with two MS, instead of MS+MX.

Price comparisons still hold, however. Jag just told us they’re looking for market share, in the US with $70k. They will have lots of sales runway thru 2019+, as base 75D’s $79.5k begins losing the 7,500 tax-credit.

Personally, The Jag could be marginally better and I’d still go 75D, because without it the Jag wouldn’t exist. Then, there’s charging.

Model Y may be too far behind. Could its controls be worth waiting for?

Pricing looks competitive. At $69,500 before destination, it’s $5,000 less than a textile-interior Model S 75D, and $10,000 less than a base Model X 75D before destination.

I’d honestly take this over a Model S because 1) it’s a breath of fresh air and everyone has a Model S in LA, and 2) it’s bigger on the inside but with a smaller footprint, which is useful for everyday driving. I like Model S, but it really doesn’t have the interior design or fit-and-finish of a world-class premium vehicle. The seats on I-PACE look fantastic.

Yes – to these eyes the I-Pace is a very impressive car.

Critics will say that 7 kw home charging isn’t enough, but most people have to sleep sometime.

Fast charging, while not competitive with Tesla’s SC network, is still somewhat available and will be getting better. It is to each individual buyer whether this is the BIG Negative it is apparently to some.

If the vehicle turns Jaguar’s usual horrid reliability on its head (admittedly, THIS TIME Jag seems to REALLY WANT to make a robust car – “the world’s finest” so they say), then the car is a steal – since the Interior is so Up-Scale, and the rest of the car is none too shabby either.

With similar options I imagine the price will be comparable to a Model Y.

How much will the dual motor AWD Model 3 Long Range cost? Add some for the larger battery in the Jag. My guess is Model Y with air suspension and dual motor AWD will be $60k.

I meant Model 3 with those will be $60k. Model Y will likely be $5 more. At any rate, I expect it could easily be the same as the Jag for a well equipped Model Y.

The Model Y is 4 years away if Tesla is still in business. Considering they can’t produce 1000 Model 3 a week and they say they have 400k non escrow refundable reservations why even bother talking about a car that may never see the light of day.

“I meant Model 3 with those will be $60k.”

More like $40k, see my other comment.

“I expect it could easily be the same as the Jag for a well equipped Model Y.”

If you want to compare “well equipped” you can’t compare against the base Jag, you have to price that “well equipped” also. The $70k base is not.

Model 3 LR has 310 EPA miles of range. The Jaguar I-Pace has an estimated 240 EPA miles of range. Not at all comparable. The Jaguar I-Pace is closer to the range of a standard range Model 3. And it is about the interior room of a Model 3 too… it actually loses 2” of combined leg room.

As @Tech01x points out, the correct comp for range is the base Model 3, not the LR. At least with Tesla you have the option to buy more range at a price, whereas with Jag, that’s the best they have to offer. As for AWD, EM has gone on record as saying the AWD option for the Model 3 will be less than what it was for Model S, so under $5k. Let’s just assume $5k for the sake of discussion, so we have: Base Model 3 @ $35k, plus AWD, gives us $40k. Right now there’s no air suspension option for Model 3 at all, so advantage: Jag (assuming you like air), but keep in mind that’s an added-cost extra, not part of the base price. On the other hand, Model 3 has the Supercharger network, so huge advantage: Tesla. Not an added cost extra, either (well, it’s pay-to-use, but it’s not a build option). Somewhat to my surprise Jag does claim to have their own ACC and Autosteer features, though unlike Tesla you have to buy them up front AFAICT, no later OTA purchase. Not clear what they cost from Jag, I tried stepping through their configurator but… Read more »

Best not to use terms like ‘bollocks and buggers’ unless you understand the usage, meaning and context of use.
You could say ‘the British must be pissed’ but not B&B.
Nice car mind.

Mostly the Tesla fans are confused because the blokes at Jaguar are taking the Mick.

That’s quite the competitive price.

I’d rather buy a Model X for that money.

You’ll have to find a 75D at a $9000 discount, then. And buy before the tax credit starts scaling down.

The X is much longer and higher and can seat 7 vs. 5. They aren’t direct competitors. The I-Pace looks like a great car, though. Jag is the first carmaker to follow Tesla’s lead and build a high end BEV. It should do well, especially in Europe where the CCS infrastructure is developing quickly.

Base 75D is +/- $75k not $79k. Both these cars are irrelevant to me because i look at $22k (net of incentives) but I’d go with the Model S.

It has a track record as fairly reliable and has had 6 years to be de-bugged. Because of SC network, for now Tesla is the only EV one can reasonably take on a road trip. And I think the model S still comes with free (included in the price) supercharging. (For how much longer?)

Tesla S is also a clean simple design and they got rid of the grill!

Tesla Model S has a fantastic 8 year bumper to bumper warranty. That is not the same thing as reliable. Door handles, electric motors, tail-lights front control arms, battery packs etc have all been succeptable to early failure.

Battery packs really? I am on my third Tesla and I never heard of it. Mercedes and BMW computers unreliable, Audi electric system unreliable, Jaguar the same. For me the important issue is a good warranty and Tesla is great.

The Jaguar is MUCH smaller than the Model X, if they were both ICE vehicles they would never be compared in the same sentence. It’s only due to the scarcity of EV SUVs that they get cross shopped.

The i-Pace is the size of a compact crossover. CR-V, Equinox, Rav4.

The Model X is a large 3 row crossover, the size of Explorer, Enclave, Traverse.

I’m not implying the X is a better choice, but I’m suggesting they aren’t direct competitors and most people will choose one over the other not on any substantial merit, but either due to SIZE preference, or due to BRAND preference.

Actually, in interior space the I-Pace is only SLIGHTLY smaller than the Model X, as it’s roughly the same as a Porsche Cayenne (despite having Macan-sized exterior dimensions). To flip things around on you, many people found the Model X to be a lot bigger than desired, but if they wanted an electric SUV they had no choice. Now they have something that’s much easier to park, yet has plenty of room for 5 people and their luggage.

So you believe it would be possible to add two extra seat in a third row in I-Pace?

Sure, I do believe that some people buy Model X because there doesn’t exist any smaller electric SUV but if you take luggage compartment in to account I have hard to believe that I Pace and Model X is the same size.

The Model X is basically a mini van with flapping instead of sliding doors. The i-Pace is a midsize crossover. I don’t see people cross shopping them. You’re going to see the model X competing for space in school drop off lines in ways that the Jaguar is not. The i-Pace is most likely competing with the Porsche Cayenne.

I just rode in a RAV4 yesterday. That is definitely not a mid-sized crossover, it’s definitely a compact car, despite being shaped like an SUV.

If the I-Pace is not much bigger than the RAV4, then comparing it to the Model X is ridiculous. As someone said above, it would make far more sense to compare it to the Model Y.

The model Y is likely to be smaller than the i-Pace and the model X is larger. Neither of those compete on size.

My point is different. Neither of them will compete with each other because of different levels of luxury and different demographics. Jaguar and Porsche are likely to compete with each other. Tesla is more likely to compete with Land Rover – same price points but totally different brand identity. Nobody ever said: do you want to shag in my Jag? – wait a sec while I raise the falcon door, move the childrens toys away and put down the 3rd row.

The Model 3 has the same footprint as the Jag i-Pace, so the Model Y will likely be the same size as the Jag. My guess is they won’t be that different in price. If a Model 3 LR with AWD and Air suspension comes in at $60k, it is likely a Model Y would cost $65k. It could easily end up in about the same price tier as the Jag.

“If a Model 3 LR with AWD and Air suspension comes in at $60k”

Which it won’t. To summarize my comment upthread,

– SR is the correct comp for the Jag’s range,
– Model 3 currently doesn’t have air for any price,
– AWD is expected (based on EM comments and Model S pricing) to be less than $5k,

So Model 3 SR AWD should be $40k or so. If you want to impute some arbitrary price to air, go ahead, but keep in mind the base Jag doesn’t have air.

It is the same dimesnsions as the Rav4, doesn’t mean it is same interior space. My hunch is the i-Pace feels roomier.

I’m not buying that, and your Cayenne comparison doesn’t support your case.

The X, with rear seats folded down, has ~80 cubic feet of rear cargo space (88.1 minus frunk), while the Cayenne has 63. You can dispute the official figures all you want, but there’s a big difference any way you cut it.

That video Jaguar released shows the huge size difference between the vehicles. You couldn’t possibly engineer a third row of passengers in the iPace.

There will never be a Jag with 3rd row seats.

They call Cayennes and Panameras “Porsche’s”.
So, why not?

Most European “SUVs” are hopped up wagons; far from “minivan” capacity.

Jag, and all EV iterations, need the higher roof-line, but no “light truck” ground clearance, that help the image of “SUV” (and meeting lower CAFE requirements). It’s “a look” the videos of both I-Pace and MX bears out.

We’re reverting from the deliberate “light truck” idiocy, and making use of absurd ground clearance for a battery.

Some of what we could say defines a “compliance car” has been a refusal to do this. It makes too much sense, and could lead to sales of these evil, low-margin products 😉

Cayennes and Panameras don’t have 3rd row seats either.

I’ll extend my original statement. There will never be a Jag or Porsche with 3rd row seats. Look at the demographics of a typical Porsche driver: 50 something male who earns 100k+. People at that stage of their lives don’t need a 3rd row. In fact, the dog has probably taken over the second row since the kids left for college.

Now they have something that’s much easier to park, yet has plenty of room for 5 people and their luggage.

Right. That something is the Tesla M3.

Good luck with the M3 trunk. Had it been a hatchback it would have 1M reservations.

I pace is crossover the rest of the vehicles like the Explorer are SUVs.

So $9000 less than the 75 kWh model X, with much nicer interior and longer range. It can also have roof racks and I would expect it to be of higher quality than the Tesla.

The range should be just over 250 miles, not 240. It does 298 on the WLTP scheme which should translate to 253 miles EPA. A bit low I think with a 90 kWh battery pack, it must have pretty bad aero.

Oh, I see that the destination fee is not included in the Tesla price, then the Jaguar is $10200 cheaper!

If the Jaguar I-Pace is actually higher quality than the Tesla Model X, then this will bode well for the Entire Jaguar brand, as it leads in transitioning to EVs, ahead of its ICE OEM Legacy counterparts. The Jaguar brand could definitely use some good news, to move up from #6 in 2017 Luxury Brands Customer Satisfaction, in their J.D. Power surveys. Look out Cadillac and Porsche, Jag maybe looking for a #5 or #4 spot.

Ya, I don’t get why IEVs seems to consistently not include destination charges in the price for Teslas but they usually do for everyone else.

How about they keep it consistent…

Well I was looking at the Tesla home page for the price, it said $79500 at first but that was without destination.

But it’s the same thing with the “$35k model 3” which is actually $36200 including destination, or $37200 if you want it painted.

It doesn’t translate that easily by applying fixed coefficient.
E.g. Ampera E has estimated 380 km WLTP range.

This is 236 miles. Very close to Bolt EPA range. I-Pace 298 mile WLTP range is actually tested, but 240 mile EPA range is just minimal guestimate at this point. Expect official EPA range to be longer.

“Figures shown are Manufacturer’s driving range estimates. Actual mileage may vary. EPA estimates not available at time of publication. See your local authorized Jaguar Retailer for updated EPA estimates. “

Sure but if we compare it to the 90D model X, that is rated at 257 miles EPA. The model X weighs 5271 lbs vs 4702 for the Jaguar, quite a difference. I would guess that the drag is probably a little bit better on the X but the Jag uses the more efficient permanent magnet motors instead of induction. All in all I expect the real EPA to be in the 250-255 miles range.

Jaguars have horrible quality, especially on the interior.

Honestly comparing the i-Pace to the MX is like comparing an Aston Martin with a Camaro. Lets face it, MS and M3 are great looking cars, even still beautifull after 7 years. On the other hand the MX is just an UGLY “SUVAN”. Not everyone wants or needs 7 seats and not everyone wants this stupid backdors. The only good thing about the MX is that it’s a Tesla. Once there’re Audi and Mercedes 7 seaters, sales are gona plumb

I know a lot of people in the Netherlands that chose the I Pace over buying a new Model S. In the Netherlands tax rules will change end of this year so only cars under € 50.000,- will benefit.

All cars benefit. The benefit is only for 50.000 of the total price. So a 70.000 euro car still has a pretty large benefit.

I would also think Dutch driver prefer a smaller car. Loads of people complain about the size of a Model S/X. Too large for Dutch parking spaces and city streets.

The price is a little steep, but not bad considering even if you check every option box it stays below $100,000. Model Y should run considerably less, but not with the same level of luxury. More telling will be where the e-Tron and EQC are priced.

What defines luxury in an automobile? Leather, wood? Upgraded sound system? Built-in technology features? I think this is why Tesla uses the term Premium vehicle. Granted, if you sit in a GM Bolt and its nearest competitor, the iPace, there’s a difference in materials used and the Bolt doesn’t look as refined as the iPace, but I can name possible differences: The seats are not as comfortable and sturdy The floor carpeting is not as plush GM likes making things out of the cheapest plastic possible and their dashboard has lots of seams and gaps Doors are not as thick More wind noise in the Bolt (more noticeable on an EV) So, iPace versus the Tesla Model Y: what are the differences? I will give you “build quality control.” If you really, really know what to look for, the build quality issues on at least the early Model S vehicles is… measurable. I feel like it comes down to base versus options, like alloy rims and the sound system. Simple fact is that this compact SUV (how Jaguar describes their Pace model) is a smaller, cheaper, lighter vehicle than the Model X. But, the Model Y doesn’t exist yet. Evidence… Read more »

First seel your model 3 and ramp the production before mentioning the model y

Model Y is no competition to MB EQc!

A bit slow at a top speed of 124 mph.
a good effort from Jaguar, now once it’s actually out and people are driving it we’ll have a better assessment of it’s capabilities.
These days it’s harder to shovel crummy tin onto people if they have even an once of intellect they will investigate deeply into the vehicle they plan to purchase.

This rather sudden jail-house conversion, by all the legacy auto companies, is proof that Musk’s original plan is finally coming to fruition, sparking other companies to make their best efforts in the ev revolution.

Even Toyota, the avowed atheist and non-believer, has seen the light and now says they are going to make an ev. So I think this plethora of new evs is a watershed moment that is best just appreciated.
So kudos to the Bolt, Tesla’s, iPace, Leaf,

ounce, oops.

+ 100 ffbj.

Tesla has started to thoroughly disrupt the laggard, legacy ICE makers and the evidence of them being forced to compete with PEVs and even compelling PEVs grows daily.

Notice how they are now starting to blatantly copy much of Tesla’s innovations like skateboard chassis with big battery, dual motors, big touch screens, OTAs, etc.

124 is really lame for a brand name like Jaguar. But you cannot drive that fast in US anyway.

A bit slow at 124 mph?, enlight me, where in the US or Europa (excluding Germany) could you “legally” drive faster than 124 mph?

So it starts at more than a P100D…

As many of us said for awhile it is cheaper than any Tesla you can get except the Model 3 and “get” is a relative term. It also should be as it’s smaller, doesn’t have access to the SC network (which isn’t free as it’s price is baked in to the car), etc..

I am sure it is still above what most people will want to pay but I suspect that, unlike Tesla, you will be able to get it for less than MSRP but the question is how much less! Just get an extended warranty and you should be good! Will be interesting to see what the e-tron comes out at and how much they will undercut Jag.

New S,X, and 3 buyers have to pay for SC now.

Not new S, X buyers, since Tesla’s still running their “free Supercharging with referral”. It’s a bit difficult to imagine anyone buying an S or X *without* a referral since any current owner will be happy to give you one (need one? I’d be happy to oblige).

At some point presumably the referral gravy train will end, but not yet. (Current program runs until April 30).

I’ll happily stick with my Ampera-e and the extra 30000 dollars in my bank account 🙂

Wow this will cost 10k more the the TM3 that us selling now at 56k. AWD LR model 3 will cost how much?

I think the main impact will be in Europe, rather than US. Charging will be less of an issue in major European markets, and Jaguar is less wired than Tesla in those countries. So I can see someone in Norway or Germany of UK buy this instead of a Model S/X/3. The dimensions are more Euro friendly, and those markets care more about things like interior quality and ergonomics than US market.

The trolls are out in force hailing this car as a Tesla killer. Buy one and you will have loads of time to contemplate how much you were deceived by those trolls trying to fill it up at a 50KW charger. Very expensive city car anyone?


Another Euro point of view

Says the troll…

The perennial euro troll point of view…


I mean, the faster chargers are already on the way, but you can stick to the 50kW chargers if you want.

Jaguar was a premium brand in the ranks of MB, BMW, Porsche. In addition, these are all 4 wheel drive with better standard features. What r u smoking? Too many Tesla trollers here!

I’m a soon to be (April delivery) 100D owner, so take this point of view within this context. The i-Pace, not a model Y or even a model S will be our second family car replacing a hybrid variant currently in the stable. The reason is because Jaguar has delivered a value packed offering in a timely manner to market. The model Y is years away and Jag has just delivered a car 2 years ahead of Tesla within the cost bracket, with acceptable range and performance criteria of what we all wanted and envisioned the Y to be. Tesla is now no longer the leader in all segments, and after seeing the Genova release of the Rimac C2, as well as the Ionity charging network planned for the EU, the EV industry is waking up and Tesla is losing its lead position. With more EV’s as Elon has noted, we all win…

Agreed! I was waiting to buy a model Y to replace my current plugin. With all these choices from MB EQc, Audi Quattro etron, and this. Tesla looks doomed unless they can come up with a flying car.

Maybe not doomed, but pushed to innovate further yes. Innovation will work in our respective favour for better products. Tesla has been disrupting for a long time. They were first mover. Will they continue to pivot and disrupt only time will tell.

+1. Tesla will be happily making great cars for years to come. To many TSLA bulls and bears here with hyper emotional reactions.

They were never going to have the market to themselves for ever. Kudos to Jaguar.

I really doubt the MY will be less than $60k, $70k with dual engine/4WD and it wont be available before 2020/2021. So Jaguar will have this segment for itself for some 3 years, unless Nissan unveils somo form of competition. The options in 2021 will be great: Jaguar, Porsche, Audi, BMW, Mercedes, VW, Nissan/Infiniy, Tesla, GM BEV SUVs. I think from that point on sales of ICE SUVs will start falling down and the market will fo with BEV. RIMAC, Aston Marting, Tesla and McLaren will offer the Electric HyperCars that will create the Halo effect. Will there be a Ferrari/Lamborghini BEV Hipercar by 2021?

I think Jaguar did a good trick. Everybody is behind Tesla, but it was known the Tesla Y would be the last of the four. So Jaguar decided to built a concurrent for the Y and is first. Good thinking!
