With EVs dominating every sector of the automotive marketplace right now, the Jaguar I-PACE is another exciting addition. Having made its debut in 2019, the I-PACE is a fresh vehicle from the British automaker that is different from most of its ICE-powered siblings in the Jag and Land Rover lineup. Since the I-PACE is based on the same JLR D7e platform, the new model year carries forward little changes from its 2019 predecessor.

The Jaguar I-PACE is a stellar example of what electron-powered vehicles are capable of, as evident by its energetic performance, decent all-electric range, and nimble handling dynamics. Wrapped in a practical SUV-like body, the I-PACE offers a plush cabin, cutting-edge technology, and commodious interior space. The all-electric SUV segment is still on the verge of development, as the I-PACE faces true competition from the likes of the Tesla Model X and the Audi e-tron.

2020 Jaguar I-PACE electric Features

8.0/10

The 2020 Jaguar I-PACE is offered in 3 trim levels S, SE, and HSE. All the trims include the same electric powertrain with a 90 kWh battery pack. Each trim has its own perks and features. The base S trim features 18-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels, LED headlights, 8-way semi-powered front seats, Ambient Interior Lighting, Manual tailgate, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Lane Keep Assist, and more. 

Upgrade to the SE trim and you will get bigger wheels, a power liftgate, and a Drive Package that includes Adaptive Cruise Control, High-speed Emergency Braking, and Blind Spot monitoring. Meanwhile, the top-ranking HSE trim adds heated and cooled front seats, an upgraded sound system, and the Driver Assist Package which has the same features as the previous package but also offers a 360-degree camera display and steering assist.

Which trim should you buy?

We will recommend the mid-range SE trim for the best bang-on value for your bucks. This trim totally changes the context of the base trim, by adding larger 20-inch wheels, upgraded LED headlights, and leather upholstery. Besides, the SE trim gets the full range of Jaguar’s best driver assistance aids under Park and Drive packages. Other stellar options that you can add to amp up the comfort factor include adaptive dampers, four-zone climate control, and a heads-up display.

2020 Jaguar I-PACE electric Engine and Performance

9.9/10

The 2020 Jaguar I-PACE gets its dose of ions from a dual electric monitor setup integrated on both the front and rear axles. Together both of these electric motors can pump out a sensational combined power of 394 hp and 512 lb-ft of torque. The electric powertrain is coupled to a single-speed automatic transmission, as the power distribution remains constant throughout the ride. Like every other EV on the market, the I-PACE runs on an all-wheel drivetrain, enhancing its traction and stability on slippery roads.

In the speed sector, the Jaguar I-PACE doesn’t disappoint either. With its unconditional electric boost, the I-PACE zips past the 60 mph mark from a standstill in 4.5 seconds. The EV speeds past the quarter-mile in a breezy 12.6 seconds. Although the I-PACE doesn’t have any performance roots, the SUV is pretty quick given its size. However, despite this impressive agility, the I-Pace could not claim the fastest SUV crown.

There is no doubt that the I-Pace from Jaguar displays impressive performance but it’s the Model X from Tesla which sits at the top as it crosses the 0-60 mph limit 0.1 seconds earlier than the Jaguar I-Pace. Meanwhile, the Audi e-tron slowly tried to catch up by reaching 60 mph from a state of rest in 5.5 seconds. Furthermore, the e-tron has the least power figures in the competition. 

How well does the 2020 Jaguar I-PACE handle?

With its powerful dual electric motor setup onboard, the I-PACE is a quick EV that can cruise past the city stoplights and highway lanes with breezy acceleration (but do follow traffic rules, ok?). The ride quality feels top-notch, comfortable, and the cabin is quite as expected from an EV. Once you get your hands on the steering wheel, you can instantly feel the intuitive steering feedback.

2020 Jaguar I-PACE electric SUV ride and handling

The standard air suspension absorbs all the road undulations, giving you additional stability and an extra comfort factor. The battery pack is cleverly nestled beneath the floor with a low center of gravity. This gives the Jag a sense of lightness similar to a sedan rather than an SUV, which significantly improves its handling dynamics. The shabby braking setup is the only soggy factor that dampens the overall fun factor while driving the electric Jag.

2020 Jaguar I-PACE Braking Performance

Braking is a paramount factor for a car in any situation. A solid braking quotient averts disasters in the nick of time and protects the passenger from any harm. The I-PACE is equipped with 13.8-inch front brake rotors and 12.8-inch rear brake rotors. With a ventilated 4-wheel disc brake setup, the I-PACE applies brakes quickly in panic situations. However, for daily driving situations, the braking factors feel very unrefined and choppy. There is no real feel while pressing the brake pedals as it only feels like an on-off toggle switch simulation. Even the lift-throttle regenerative system braking fails to impress.

None of the EVs in this head-to-head are tested yet in the 60-0 braking stat. Hence, there is no scope for comparison in the braking sector. The I-Pace however can do a better job in improving its braking quality in everyday situations. That said, the heaviest SUV in the segment is from the Audi while the lightest one is the Jaguar I-Pace. 

2020 Jaguar I-PACE electric Fuel Economy

9.9/10

The I-PACE is rated to shell out an EPA-estimated MPGe of 80 in the city and 72 on the highway. In real driving conditions, this equates to a combined MPGe of 76. The I-PACE sports an efficient 90 kWh battery pack that allows an impressive driving range of 234 miles. The battery capacity can be replenished up to 80% in a little less than 40 minutes using DC fast charging. With the standard 240 V AC unit at home, buyers have to wait for around 13 hours for the SUV to fully charge up before they can take it out on a spin.

With its driving range of 234 miles, the Jaguar I-PACE is easily one of the most battery-efficient EVs in the market. Not many EVs can claim an all-electric range of more than 250 miles. However, the Tesla Model X brings it back to reality with its class-leading range of 371 miles. On the other hand, the Audi e-tron provides a range of 218 miles.

2020 Jaguar I-PACE electric Interior

8.0/10

Jaguar has always been the epitome of luxury and class. Its refined assortment of premium materials and fine technology has earned a standout reputation in the industry. The 2020 Jaguar I-PACE carries on the refined assortment of premium materials and fine technology which is seen in other Jaguar models and brings immense practicality plus a sophisticated interior for customers to relish. The dashboard looks flashy from every angle It features an ergonomic arrangement of buttons and tech bits for maximum driver engagement. The center console includes a useful bin under the armrest and a tray below the center stack to fit in all your small stuff and accessories.

2020 Jaguar I-PACE electric SUV front seats

The front seats are nicely bolstered to feel comfortable in them. However, for long trips, these seats don’t offer the best support. Still, we have no complaints owing to the generous headroom and legroom in both the front and back. The standard 8-way semi-powered Luxtec sport front seats can be upgraded to 10-way electric memory-grained leather or 18-way heated and cooled, memory Windsor leather front sport seats on the higher trim. Additionally, the rear seats can be folded into a 40/60 pattern and get heated features on the HSE trim. That said, manual tilt and telescopic steering column, auto-dimming rearview mirror, three 12V outlets, dual-zone automatic climate control, Air Quality Sensor, and Ambient Interior Lighting are some standard cabin features on the base I-Pace.

The Jaguar I-PACE has a roomy cabin but it is stingy when it comes to the rear row legroom. However, the Model X is the one with the airiest interior, and next in line is the Audi e-tron. Behind the rear seats, the I-PACE offers 25.3 cubic feet of space while the Audi e-tron has the leading cargo space. At the same time, the Tesla Model X gives a cargo capacity of 26 cu-ft. The notable interior features onboard include:

  • Luxtec upholstery 
  • Optional four-zone automatic climate control
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Versatile center console

2020 Jaguar I-PACE electric Exterior

9.9/10

When it was introduced in 2019, The Jaguar I-PACE laid the foundation for all future Jag models with its unique road presence. The SUV sports a visually appealing look that exudes poise, confidence, and enigma. The sloping roofline design has been implemented to perfection. Other standout visual elements include the flowing waistline, the standout hood scoop grille, and signature rear haunches. The grille is flanked by futuristic LED headlights that symbolize the brand’s double ‘J’ blade graphic. Customers can select from a range of stylish wheel designs from 18-inch 5-spoke to 20-inch wheels with 6 or 5 spokes. 

2020 Jaguar I-PACE electric SUV

Fortunately, the Jaguar I-PACE manages to cut some pounds off its curb weight, making it the lightest electric SUV in its segment. The standard air suspension setup also permits it to some degree of off-road activity, but not too much. By raising the ground clearance by 5.6 inches, the Jaguar I-PACE can traverse through 20 inches of deep water. Other standout exterior aspects are:

  • LED headlights
  • Power liftgate, hands-free functionality optional
  • 18-inch alloy wheels
  • Fixed glass sunroof
  • Infrared reflective windscreen
  • Auto-dimming, power fold, heated side mirrors

2020 Jaguar I-PACE electric Safety

8.0/10

Both the safety agencies NHTSA and IIHS have skipped the safety testing of the Jaguar I-PACE. The I-PACE makes amends by providing perimeter alarm, seat belt alert, automatic emergency braking, Driver Condition Monitor, lane-keeping assist, cruise control, and traffic sign recognition. The Park Package is standard on all trim which adds parking sensors, Clear Exit Monitor, Rear Traffic Monitor, and 360-degree parking aid. For more safety features, you can select the upper trims.

  • Park Assist
  • 360-degree surround Camera
  • Adaptive cruise control

6.0/10

2020 Jaguar I-PACE vs 2020 Audi e-tron

The Audi e-tron is almost comparable to the Jaguar I-PACE in many factors, as both SUVs offer the luxury and elegance that their brands are known for with an electric twist. Both the EVs are evenly matched in terms of technology and safety. The Audi has the edge in terms of interior practicality and spaciousness. However, it falls behind the Jaguar I-PACE in terms of driving range and performance, both of which are very important factors for any EV. Jaguar is also available at a lower base price, making the British EV the better choice than its German counterpart.

2020 Jaguar I-PACE vs 2020 Tesla Model X

The Model X has the onus in terms of performance, outclassing its Jaguar rival in the speed and acceleration charts. The Model X also has a spectacular all-electric driving range, with the I-PACE nowhere within range. Furthermore, Tesla has a host of excellent interior technology that intrigues the mind of every tech geek. However, the interior quality inside the Tesla Model X isn’t up to the standards of a luxury SUV, while the Jag’s cabin on the other hand looks immaculate and upmarket. Some might like the Tesla’s approach to minimalism with respect to its interior and exterior style, but its lofty starting price may convince them otherwise.

Tesla Model X

2020 Jaguar I-PACE electric Final Verdict

8.5/10

An excellent combination of virtues like zippy acceleration, robust performance, and butter-smooth handling makes the Jaguar I-Pace one of the best EVs around. By adding Jaguar’s stellar reputation for interior quality and technology to the equation, the I-PACE looks like an absolute winner. Despite gripes at its laggy infotainment and unresponsive braking, the Jaguar I-PACE manages to turn the tide in its favor with its positive aspects. Do give it a spin to find out for yourself.
