Summary

“A sporty electric SUV with space for the whole family.”

The Jaguar I-Pace is a luxurious electric SUV that's good to drive and offers decent value as a used buy.

Introduced in 2018, the I-Pace was updated in 2023 with minor changes to its exterior design and specifications. Despite its sleek styling it's a practical car with space for all the family inside. It’s especially enjoyable to drive, with a smooth yet sporty feel.

All models come with climate control, sat nav and leather seats, plus a suite of advanced driver safety systems.

What's the interior like?

“Very spacious for passengers and a big boot.”

The I-Pace has an extremely spacious interior. There’s generous space for four adults, even if they’re very tall. And a fifth can squeeze into the middle back seat for shorter journeys. There’s as much room as most families could need, although small children may struggle to see out of the small back windows.

The boot is bigger than that of many electric cars of similar size. There’s space for a couple of weeks’ holiday luggage, even if you don’t travel light. The back seats fold down for more space, while there’s an extra storage space for the charging cables under the bonnet.

The interior has a high-tech look and feels luxurious. The buttons, dials and touchscreens are generally easy to use.

What's it like to drive?

“Fast, smooth and enjoyable to drive.”

Despite being a large(ish) SUV, the I-Pace has the sporty feel you expect of a Jaguar. It feels responsive and nimble, which makes nipping around town easy. And means the I-Pace can be good fun on a curvy country road. Few other electric SUVs can match it in that regard. Small side and back windows restrict the view behind you but standard parking sensors and cameras make slotting into tight spaces relatively easy.

All I-Pace models have the same batteries and electric motors. They’re badged EV400, indicating that they have 400hp. That’s a lot of power, so the I-Pace is very fast if you want it to be. Otherwise, it’s very smooth and easy to drive at low speeds. All models have four-wheel drive. The I-Pace feels safe and secure and is also quite capable as an off-roader.

Is it cost-efficient to buy and run?

“Better value than some other used electric SUVs.”

The I-Pace is good value as a used buy, compared with key rivals such as the Audi e-tron or the Mercedes-Benz EQC.

According to official figures, the I-Pace has a range of up to 292 miles on a fully charged battery. Some newer rivals can offer more, but that's still quite competitive. And, as with any electric car, in real-world driving your range will depend on where and how you drive.

An 80% recharge takes less than two hours from a public rapid charger. Use a ‘wallbox’ charger at home and the battery will fully recharge overnight.

Which one is best for you?

There’s only one power option available for the I-Pace, so the differences between the various models are in the standard equipment.

The range starts with the S model, which has climate control, sat nav, smartphone connectivity, a parking camera and leather seats. SE and top-spec HSE models also come with better stereos and more advanced driver safety systems.
