Jaguar I-Pace - Overview

The Jaguar I-Pace is a fully electric, mid-size, all-wheel drive, SUV. Powered by a 400hp motor, it is capable of nearly 300 miles on a single charge and has remarkable acceleration, with 0-60mph covered in just 4.5 seconds. Due to the compact nature of electric motors and the positioning of the battery pack, the I-Pace is also roomy inside – featuring a quality, high-tech dashboard.

DRIVING

What is the Jaguar I-Pace like to drive?

Performance may not be a typical starting point for company car buyers out there, who are usually more interested in low CO2 and low taxation. However, because the I-Pace is zero emission, the economy aspect isn’t so much of an issue. In turn this means the performance comes to the fore, or more precisely the acceleration, which is nothing short of stunning thanks to a 0-60mph time of 4.5 seconds - on a par with Jaguar’s ‘R’ badged performance cars. The instant shove from the electric motors and all-wheel drive grip mean the I-Pace is one rapid car. It corners remarkably flatly and grips well thanks to a low centre of gravity, and overall the car is fun and responsive to drive. The range of nearly 300 miles is impressive too. Charging time takes 13.5 hours from a typical 7kw home charge point if the car is empty. Jaguar says this type of charging will add 22 miles of range per hour. However, use a 50kw rapid charge point and this leaps to 168 miles of range per hour.

How to spec the Jaguar I-Pace

With only one power option available, all you need to choose from when selecting the Jaguar I-Pace are the trim levels and options. Opting for the entry level version in any business car could sometimes be considered a no-no from a residual value point of view. However, in the case of the I-Pace, the base S trim level is so well equipped that it has to be the logical choice for any business user. However, options such as head-up display and privacy glass are well worth considering.

 

Jaguar I-Pace Interior – what’s it like?

Inside the Jaguar I-Pace there are plenty of wow-factors. The double touch-sensitive control screens for the infotainment systems and climate control are very high-quality items, and give the I-Pace a real air of luxury. The 12.3-inch main screen that controls the satnav is especially clear and simple to use. There’s also a digital driver display that shows the speed and other essential details such as range. This screen can also be configured to show other systems such as the satnav. There’s lots of rear passenger leg room and the boot at 577 litres is larger than most of its conventionally-powered rivals.

THE ALTERNATIVES

Jaguar I-Pace Alternatives

So far, the only direct pure EV rival is the Tesla Model X. However, in simple size terms, the Jaguar F-pace, BMW X3, Audi Q5, Mercedes GLC and Lexus NX are also rivals.

VERDICT

Verdict

The Jaguar i-Pace is a tremendously appealing car. Zero CO2 means the lowest BIK bands – which when combined with its addictive driving experience, could make this one of the best high-end company cars available.
