About Jaguar I-Pace EV400
Jaguar I-Pace is a premium electric SUV launched in 2018. It is the first all-electric car 86 years old Jaguar built. British carmaker beats the BMW and Mercedes in bringing a luxury electric vehicle to the market. It’s not a high-volume production car though, but I-Pace is clearly the luxurious car market’s Model 3 equivalent. It opened up a broad market for different kinds of high range electric cars such as Audi e-tron, Mercedes EQC, and the BMW iX.
2021 I-Pace comes with dual motor all-wheel drive system, it produces 400 horsepower and 696 Nm of torque. Top speed is electronically limited to 200 km per hour. It has got its energy from the 90-kWh battery pack, enough for a range of 470 km when fully charged.

I-Pace comes with a dual motor drivetrain system. AWD vehicle can produce 400 HP and 696 Nm torque. Its acceleration from zero to 100 km/h only takes 4.8 seconds. As a luxurious vehicle I-Pace offers a comfortable and also speedy drive. Top speed is 200 km/h, powerful electric SUV can reach those speeds in no time.
Design and Features
Latest version of the Jaguar I-Pace has an improved front grille design with chrome details. It looks very similar to the gas-powered F-Pace. The only difference is that I-Pace has a completely closed grille which enables car to be more aerodynamically efficient. There are still vents on the bumper down below for cooling the battery system etc.
Jaguar updated the infotainment system with a 10-inch touch display and the latest version of the JLR operation system. Infotainment experience can get a little laggy sometimes and finding what you are looking for easily takes some getting used to, but it supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay via wireless connection as standard. There is also a 5-inch climate control display alongside the physical dials and buttons adding a lot of practicality. Base model I-Pace S doesn’t include this climate control touch display though.
Both front seats come with heating as standard. Wireless charging pad is available for all trims as well. 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster is also standard.
Interior quality is very good, soft materials and plastic parts definitely look classy. But Audi e-tron and e-tron S does feel more luxurious than the I-Pace. Audi did a better job with the interior design.
Back seats offer quite a lot of space for the rear occupants. However, there is nothing special in the back row of the I-Pace, no climate control, only couple of USB ports and optional heated seats. Despite being very spacious I-Pace is only available as a 5-seater. Tesla Model X is still the only electric SUV in this segment to offer seven-seat option.
Range and Charging
Jaguar has been using the same 90 kWh battery pack in the I-Pace ever since its launch. Drivers can get 470 kilometers of range from it on a single charge. Charging is the downside of this D-segment electric car. I-Pace only supports 100 kW DC charging, %10-80 will take 45 minutes, while its competitors such as BMW iX3 can reach the same charge level in around 30 minutes thanks to its 150 kW DC support.
