Jaguar I Pace Review

The Jaguar I-Pace, which will be released in 2022, is an intriguing all-electric crossover that looks great and performs well. Although the I-futuristic Pace’s exterior grabs the imagination, its premium label and price likely restrict its broad appeal. This ute has a range of 253 miles according to the EPA, as well as rapid charging and swift acceleration. With its controlled attitude and intuitive steering, the I-Pace drives more like a sports vehicle than a five-seat crossover. The Jaguar impresses on the inside with its cutting-edge design, large passenger capacity, and popular amenities.

The 2022 Jaguar I-Pace demonstrates that electric vehicles can be exciting in other ways, despite falling short of its stated driving range in our real-world test and charging slowly using a standard outlet.

What’s New for 2022?

Jaguar provides the I-Pace with a few upgrades after bypassing the 2021 model year. It now comes with a free 4G data subscription, as well as a 360-degree camera system and wireless connectivity device charging. Chrome exterior trim, Atlas Grey highlights, and other minor stylistic modifications are included with the Bright package. A new entertainment system is installed inside, which is supposed to be easier to use than the one it replaces. It also has a function that shows you where the closest charging stations are as well as how long it will take to charge the battery. The Jaguar I-Pace also comes with an 11.0-kW onboard charger, which provides faster at-home charging than the previous 7.0-kW model. According to Jaguar, it now takes 8.6 hours to fully recharge a dead battery, compared to 12.6 hours previously.

Jaguar I-Pace price and Which One to Buy

Only the formerly top-of-the-line HSE trim is available for the 2022 I-Pace. It is, however, $11,000 less expensive than previously, with a starting price that is about equal to the previous base model. The HSE comes standard with a powerful premium audio system, a head-up display, leather upholstery, 16-way power front seats with heated and cooled cushions, a power-operated liftgate, and 20-inch wheels, as well as an array of active safety features like adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist.

E-Motor, Transmission, and Performance

The Jaguar I-Pace comes standard with all-wheel drive, which is powered by two electric motors that provide 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of instant torque. That energy allows for rapid and smooth acceleration, allowing you to speed through city stoplights and past sluggish drivers on the interstate. The I-Pace offers a smooth ride and excellent steering input thanks to its standard air suspension. A large battery pack beneath the floor creates a low center of gravity, giving the electric Jag additional agility and stability. While the vehicle we drove was undeniably enjoyable to drive, its inconsistent braking action while coming to a stop was a flaw. Two Jaguar-designed synchronous permanent magnet electric motors are separately regulated to adjust the front-to-rear balance to suit driving conditions.

Drive Testing

Given the I-2.1-tonne Pace’s weight, corners should have a lot of understeer and sloppiness, but this isn’t the case. Our test car featured the optional self-leveling air suspension (£1,120) with adaptive damping (£815), so it had a lower center of gravity than the F-Pace and the maximum torsional rigidity of any Jaguar. We can’t speak for the normal setup, but the experience is just enough body roll to feel the weight transfer, but not too much, letting you slice into corners with trust and grip. Because the brakes use a combination of regeneration and mechanical friction, you can forgive a mushy sensation at the top of the pedal stroke before they truly bite.

The Jaguar I-Pace may be driven in a variety of ways. In Dynamic, the steering is heavier and the throttle is snappier as if your trousers are on fire. Which is good as long as you have access to a charger and several hours to reserve. When you’ve got miles to travel, you can drive like a saint in Comfort or Eco mode. You can also get off the road entirely. Although the Jaguar I-Pace is not an off-road vehicle, it does include a low-grip mode and AdSR. I’m not convinced Adaptive Surface Response, which changes motor and brake settings based on surface and circumstances, was ever designed to handle real-world off-road situations. We reach a point where the grass is waist-high and the chalk beneath is slick. In the background, the traction control skitters and clicks, and the motors whine a little, but the momentum is maintained.

Because there’s no bulky ICE extending the nose and no vulnerable exhaust below, clearance and approach/departure angles are good. We already know that electric-car packaging (large batteries low and in the middle to ensure a perfect weight distribution, lightweight motors on each axle) is beneficial for on-road dynamics; now it appears that it is also good for off-road dynamics. There’s even some movement in the axles. Some.

The Jaguar I-Pace has a sustainable driving experience. Ramblers will have little to complain about because of the quiet pace, and the ride will be soft and comfortable, smoothing the edges of potholed parts. The only minor complaint is that crawling over bumps and obstructions – or even just reversing up a driveway – necessitates giving the throttle an extra poke, making movement jerky (switching Creep mode on might have helped). But, kudos to you, Jaguar I-Pace, for going off-road and surviving.

Range, Charging, and Battery Life

Every I-Pace comes standard with a 90.0-kWh tech lithium-ion battery pack that offers an EPA-rated driving range of 253 miles. In comparison, the Audi e-tron has a maximum range of up to 204 miles and the Tesla Model X has a range of up to 295 miles. Nonetheless, the electric Jaguar has a conventional DC fast-charging connector that allowing up to 80% of its battery to be recharged in as little as 40 minutes. Those who do not have access to the quickest charging option would have to wait an estimated 8.6 hours to completely recharge the battery to use a standard 240-volt AC outlet. This is an upgrade over last year’s model, which took over 13 hours to charge in this manner. What’s the distinction? Jaguar increased the I-onboard Pace’s charger’s power from 7.0 to 11.0 kilowatts.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

According to the government, the 2022 Jaguar I-Pace will get 80 MPGe in the city, 72 MPGe on the highway, and 76 MPGe overall. While these scores are close to those of the e-Tron, they are significantly lower than those of the Model X. The most recent Jaguar I-Pace we tested on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route obtained 64 MPGe, which is 8 MPGe fewer than its own highway rating and 3 MPGe less than the e-Tron. (On our real-world route, we haven’t tried a Model X.) Visit the EPA’s website for additional information on the I-fuel Pace’s efficiency.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The Jaguar I-Pace’s attractive appearance is complemented by a smart interior that features a bright dashboard and plenty of passengers space. The front seats are decently cushioned, although they aren’t the comfiest on lengthy journeys. Of course, the panoramic fixed sunroof on the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE is the most advanced in the industry. It includes a full-size panoramic glass sunroof with specially-toughened and tinted glass that absorbs infrared to keep the interior free of too harsh sunlight, UV radiation, and heat. the Jaguar I-Pace can be equipped with a variety of desired amenities, like four-zone temperature control, a head-up display, heated front and rear seats, leather upholstery in a variety of colors, and more. A flexible center console with a handy bin beneath the armrest and a tray below the center stack highlights the cubby storage. We were able to stow seven carry-on luggage in the cargo compartment and 18 with the back seats folding in the back.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Every I-Pace is equipped with a touch-sensitive infotainment system that comprises a 10.0-inch top screen for audio and other functions, as well as a 5.5-inch lower display for interior temperature, also an easy-to-read digital gauge. While Jaguar says that the UI has been redesigned to be more intuitive than previously, we have yet to put that claim to the test. The updated software includes a function that displays the locations of charging stations, as well as their availability, cost, and anticipated charging time. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot are all available on every Jaguar I-Pace. A Meridian 825-watt sound system is also included. The Jaguar I-Pace head unit and instrument cluster are reviewed by HMI benchmarkers Screens, which are packed with features and have a smartphone-like user interface.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

Jaguar I Pace is featured with highly innovative technologies with a range of options and accessories such as a perfect variety of basic driver-assistance technology, and automatic high beams, and blind-spot monitoring. There’s also a digital 360-degree camera system. The Jaguar I-PACE now includes ClearSight rearview mirror technology, which combines a wide-angle rear-facing camera with a high-resolution LCD within the frameless glass mirror to provide the driver with an uninterrupted view of the road ahead.

Visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites for additional info on the I-crash-test Pace’s results. The following are important safety features:

– Automatic emergency braking and default forward-collision warning

– Lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist are included.

– Adaptive cruise control is also standard.

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

With long limited and powertrain coverage, Jaguar offers is among the most sophisticated warranty policies on the market. It also has one of the greatest free complimentary scheduled maintenance periods we’ve observed.

  • A five-year or 60,000-mile limited warranty is included.
  • A five-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty is included.
  • The warranty on electric components is for eight years or 100,000 miles.
  • Maintenance is free for the first five years or 60,000 miles.


Buying a Jaguar I-Pace, like any other electric vehicle, will save you money on daily running costs. Charging the battery will be far less expensive than filling a traditional SUV with gasoline or fuel. There are also significant cost reductions to be had in terms of corporate car tax and the London Congestion Charge. The I-Pace does, however, come with some of the typical costs of owning a Jaguar, such as insurance and consumables such as tires, which will be more than normal.

Because the entry-level I-Pace S is in insurance group 49 of 50, while other trim levels are in the top band, rates will be high. The automobile receives a high grade since it is powerful and expensive – the Tesla Model X is in group 50 for identical reasons.
