Introduced just last year, the 2020 Jaguar I-PACE is the luxury automaker’s first electric vehicle. It joins the gasoline-powered compact E-PACE and mid-size F-PACE in Jaguar’s sport-utility lineup. Predicted by the design of the C-X75 supercar concept, the unique cab-forward shape of the I-PACE leverages the elimination of the gas engine, and an extra-long wheelbase — 4.5 inches more stretched than that of the mid-size F-PACE — pushes the wheels to the corners. Available 22-inch wheels fill the SUV’s muscular haunches. Combined with the wide track of the I-PACE, Jaguar’s electric SUV projects a road-ready stance.
As for competitors, the field will be rapidly expanding in the next few years as governments in Europe and elsewhere mandate a growing percentage of zero-emission vehicles, but current luxury brand electric SUVs in this new space in the U.S. include the Tesla Model X and Audi e-tron. Including the $1,025 destination charge, the 2020 I-PACE lineup includes the $70,875 S, $77,275 SE, and $81,925 HSE.
