The Jaguar I-Pace Takes On Tesla's Model X at the Track

When the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace goes on sale in late 2018, it'll start at $70,495 for the base S model, including the $995 destination fee but excluding the maximum $7,500 federal tax credit.

The exterior design is inspired by the Jaguar F-TYPE sports vehicle and characterised by the distinctive Jaguar grille, muscular proportions, short overhangs and powerful haunches that give the new Jaguar E-PACE a bold and purposeful stance, instantly communicating dynamic agility.

For everyday driving, though, the Jaguar I-Pace looks like a steal compared to the Tesla Model X, but way overpriced compared to the Model 3.

At that time, only United Kingdom pricing was given-but on Tuesday, Jaguar released the USA price for the electric crossover utility vehicle that goes on sale sometime this fall. Thanks to its 90 kWh battery pack, the I-Pace can travel up to 240 miles on a single charge.

According to El Confidencial , Wales global Gareth Bale has had enough of life in Madrid and is ready to leave the Spanish giants. He wasn't a starter in either leg, but he's a very important player who causes lots of trouble to the opposition.

As for acceleration, the Jaguar outruns the Tesla model, as well. Jaguar says it makes 394 horsepower and 512 pounds-feet of torque, and can hit 60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds - a bit slower than the base Tesla Model S' low-4-seconds sprint. The Model X 75D takes 4.9 seconds to achieve the same speed.

I-Pace buyers also won't have access to Tesla's Supercharger network, instead needing to plug in at home or find independent charging locations. I-Pace owners will not have this luxury.

Using a 100-kW DC fast charger, the battery of the Jaguar I-Pace can be charged up to 80 percent in 40 minutes. Model X can accommodate seven passengers, while Jaguar's EV seats only five passengers. Comparisons are done with regards to the relative value of both electric vehicles, with the objective of informing potential buyers.
