Jaguar I-Pace Vs Tesla Model X…which one wins?
- Rogelio Becker
Equipped with two Jaguar-designed electric motors, one for each axle, and a 90 Kwh battery, the I-Pace blasts from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds, according to the car's official spec sheet. The electric I-Pace SUV will arrive in the U.S.in the second half of 2018 and a driving range up to 240 miles on a single charge. If you have access to a 100 kW DC Charger, you could get to 80-percent in just 40 minutes. Lastly the I-Pace will also arrive with Amazon Alexa Sill, which lets owners ask Alexa for information about their vehicle. This will not be possible though when the I-Pace launches. I wanted to capture a little bit of that vehicle we didn't make, the C-X75.
Those two motors launch the I-PACE from a standing start to 60mph in just 4.5s.
Another feature of InControl Remote is the ability to warm or cool the battery and interior of the auto remotely prior to you getting in, so that the former is at its most efficient from the minute you set off and the latter comfortable enough to stop you shivering or sweating for the first few miles. Heat is scavenged from the inverters and electronics to warm the interior, rather than relying exclusively on battery power.
Inside is a bit more conventional then the exterior and, says Callum previews future Jaguar interiors, with a centre console layout of screens familiar from the Range Rover Velar, materials seem high quality and it all looks very classy.
It is powered by a 90kWh battery and supported by an all-wheel-drive system.
The new I-Pace sits somewhere between a large hatchback and a traditional SUV in its form factor; there's a long wheelbase (in order to fit the car's batteries), which means that despite being slightly smaller all-round than the F-Pace SUV, there's actually significantly more interior space in the I-Pace.
FOLLOWING THE REVEAL of the Jaguar I-Pace, Jaguar has reveal a drag race between the i-Pace and its electric SUV rival, the Tesla Model X. The race was 0-60-0km/h and took place at the Autodromo Hermanes Rodriguez ePrix circuit in Mexico City, ahead of the Formula E race this weekend. Jaguar will also have a 2019 I-PACE First Edition model, based on the HSE, and offered only in the EV's first year.
Still, Jaguar's I-Pace looks like a thrilling entry in the top end of the budding EV market. This will allow owners to check the car's range, lock status and more without leaving the house or even picking up a smart device.
Yes, there's an Amazon Alexa Skill for the I-Pace. The two electric motors generate a combined 394 horsepower and 512 lb-ft. of torque to give the electric SUV a 0-60 miles per hour time of 4.5 seconds.
Priced from £63,495 and available to order now, the I-Pace is a five-seat EV with an eye-catching design and claimed performance figures that match those of a sports auto. At home, a 7kW wall box will charge the battery from 0 percent to 80 percent in 10 hours. The current 50kW United Kingdom public chargers will get you to 80% in 85 minutes.
