2020 Jaguar I-PACE Review

Jaguar managed to beat out traditional luxur competitors such as Audi and Mercedes-Benz last year when it debuted its first electric SUV, the I-Pace. In many ways, Jag set a high bar. The I-Pace is stylish, poised and comfortable and does just about everything you'd want from a luxury SUV. It also boasts acceleration and handling that could make plenty of drivers of sports cars jealous. That it just so happens to be powered by electricity can often be an afterthought.

Unfortunately, Jaguar's relative inexperience with electric vehicles shows through in a couple of areas. The non-linear brake feel, for instance, can make it hard to consistently stop smoothly, and the lack of a strong lift-throttle regenerative braking effect means you can't use a one-pedal driving style as effectively as you can in some other EVs. The I-Pace's relatively inefficient use of electricity could be seen as another drawback, either because it ultimately limits range or you just want your EV to be as efficient as possible.

Then there's the question of the price. Like all luxury EV SUVs, the I-Pace comes with a hefty premium. For most shoppers, the I-Pace's biggest selling point will be its undeniable style. More pragmatic buyers will likely have issues squaring their monthly payment against that. Still, if you're in the market for an EV that's loaded with technology features and is fun to drive, the I-Pace is worth a look.

Notably, we picked the 2020 Jaguar I-PACE as one of Edmunds' Fastest Electric SUVs and Cheapest Electric Cars for 2020.

Edmunds’ Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team

Our verdict

8.2 / 10
The I-Pace is an impressive machine that exudes style, poise, comfort and technical sophistication. This all-wheel-drive electric SUV delivers impressive range and useful utility. But Jaguar's relative inexperience with this technology results in surprisingly high electricity consumption and a lack of smoothness when braking at low speeds.

How does it drive?

8.0
The electric Jag is quick and responsive if you ask it to be. It ran a sports-car-beating 0-60 mph sprint of 4.2 seconds in our testing. It steers and handles with poise and control as well. Looking for a sporty EV? This is it.

But its performance score is let down by unrefined braking that feels like an on-off toggle with no finesse. It makes it hard to stop smoothly in daily driving, even if emergency braking power is pretty good. Another issue: The I-Pace's lift-throttle regenerative braking isn't as strong as we'd like.

How comfortable is it?

8.5
Comfort is the I-Pace's strong suit. It feels controlled, composed, quiet and supportive. The optional air suspension is nicely calibrated to absorb small bumps and smooth larger humps without losing composure. Both front and rear seats are nicely shaped and comfortable, even on longer drives. And to help you enjoy all that comfort, the I-Pace is commendably quiet, even at freeway speeds.

The climate control system offers a lot of flexibility, but the temperature stability software needs more polish. We found the system prone to overshooting our desired temperatures.

How’s the interior?

8.0
This very accommodating interior is attractive, comfortable and spacious. The control layout is logical, too. Interior space is accommodating, with good head- and legroom even in the rear seats.

There are small fiddly deficiencies here and there, but most people will not be bothered by them. Our only real technical complaint involves the lag time in both touchscreen response and the backup camera image.

How’s the tech?

8.5
The Jaguar I-Pace stands apart from other Jaguar products of recent vintage. Its audio and navigation system is modern and easy to use, and the interface lacks much of the lagginess that has plagued other Jaguar products. Smartphone integration works well and Apple CarPlay in particular looks great on the large screen. The HSE trim comes with an all-encompassing suite of driver aid systems that are straightforward to use.

How’s the storage?

8.0
The I-Pace electric SUV delivers a good dose of everyday utility. The back seat is compatible with most any child safety seat, and the cabin has a useful amount of storage for loose odds and ends. You'll find storage for phones in front of the shifter buttons, big door pockets, and a deep console box.

The cargo area is easy to load, but the available volume is limited to 25.3 cubic feet by the narrowness of the load deck. The compartment is uncommonly deep, though, and folding the rear seats opens up a good deal of space. The tiny front trunk doesn't add much space. Overall, cargo space is closer to what you get from a hatchback than a typical luxury SUV.

How economical is it?

5.5
At some point an EV's electricity consumption will become an issue. For us, that point came with the unimpressive consumption of the Tesla Model X. But the I-Pace is even worse, and by a lot. For the size of its 90-kWh battery, 234 miles of range is merely so-so. That's because its electricity consumption rate of 44 kWh per 100 miles is a full 22 percent worse than the Model X.

Is it a good value?

8.0
The I-Pace shows itself to be modern and well-built inside. The controls have a nice heft to them, and the design hides the seams between the various parts quite well. There's a bit more piano black than we like, but that's nitpicking. The price is high relative to luxury SUVs of a similar size but not outrageous among luxury EVs. We found the HSE we tested was well-equipped for the price point.

As an EV, the I-Pace shouldn't need much in the way of maintenance. You get a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper and powertrain warranty (along with roadside assistance), and the battery pack is covered for 10 years and 100,000 miles (150,000 in California).

Wildcard

8.5
Quick? Check. Nimble? Yep. Refined? Absolutely. Has the range to go somewhere? Kind of, if you don't leg it too much. The I-Pace certainly feels like a Jaguar, but at the same time it feels like something special when you're in it.

The I-Pace surprised us. Its shape does not scream crossover SUV, and in fact it comes across as something different. It rides, handles and goes more like a sport wagon that is fun to drive and interesting to look at. We dig it.

Which I-PACE does Edmunds recommend?

There's only one powertrain on offer, so the price spread between the base and top-trim cars isn't too extreme. For that reason, we'd go straight to the HSE model. You get a full suite of driver aids, added comfort upgrades, and some excellent luxury features. We also like the optional adaptive suspension and head-up driver display.

Jaguar I-PACE models

The 2020 Jaguar I-Pace is offered in three trim levels, S, SE and HSE. All three use the same 90-kWh battery and 394-horsepower all-wheel-drive electric powertrain, with up to 234 miles of range.

The base S trim includes a good amount of standard tech, with active safety features and driver aids that include parking sensors and automated park assist. The tailgate lacks power operation, but you get a massive fixed glass roof, LED head- and taillights, and other luxury items.

Upgrading to the midlevel SE provides more luxury and technology features, including 20-inch wheels, a power liftgate and leather upholstery. On the tech front you also get adaptive cruise and blind-spot monitoring.

The range-topping HSE offers more features and an upgraded interior with more premium materials for the full luxury experience. Among other upgrades, you get ventilated front seats, an upgraded stereo, and upgrades to driver aids including a 360-degree camera display and steering assist.

Quite a few stand-alone options are offered, but the most notable are adaptive suspension and a head-up display.

5 out of 5 stars, I LOVE I-PACE!
Richard de Forest,
HSE 4dr Hatchback AWD (electric DD)

Edmunds is dead wrong in its incorrect review regarding the regenerative braking system. In "HIGH REGEN MODE" it gives me, instant powerful braking with smooth, NON JERKY, ONE PEDAL driving. Plain and simple! Edmunds needs to correct this inaccurate aspect of its review of the 2019 I Pace EV400/ AWD vehicle. My I PACE performs perfectly and driving in ECO mode I'm averaging 224 -239-mile driving range. In updating my review of my 2019 I PACE (see above), the most important event was Jaguar increased the driving range from 237miles to 267 miles of driving range, with another increase in range to approximately 297 miles of driving range coming in the future This puts the I PACE at comparative ranges of the Tesla. The car has given NO us problems and is a dream ride! It's important to once again point out that Edmunds first (and continues to write incorrectly) that the braking was "grabby and jerky" using the recumbent braking system. The test driver had the car dialed in to the WRONG setting {LOW} instead of the HIGH setting. When correctly set in the HIGH recumbent mode the car is faultless at "One Pedal Driving". I'll probably get 100K miles before needing brakes. Still LOVE MY I PACE! The styling is unique and a mix of 'muscle' and elegance. People are constantly looking at the car and asking about it. It beats Tesla in many ways: easy to adjust settings without having to adjust Tesla's ONE SCREEN digital touch screen which is dangerous while trying to make adjustments while staring at the screen and driving (I owned one); the interior trims: leather Reco racing seats; the glass roof doesn't overheat the cab like Tesla and the handling is tighter than the Tesla on curves, etc. When the lease is up I'm going to buy out the residual and keep the car.

5 out of 5 stars, We LOVE our Jaguar ii-pace!
Josephus,
HSE 4dr Hatchback AWD (electric DD)

First, let me say I agree with Mr. de Forest's comments. I have no idea how Edmunds could have concluded that the regenerative braking would not allow the vehicle to come to a complete stop or to provide effective regenerative braking. Inexplicable. Most of Edmunds ratings are reasonably close to being accurate but the Overall Performance (particularly when considering acceleration, ride comfort, handling and interior/exterior quality) is significantly low). I also find it most interesting and disappointing that the article covering electric cars (crossovers?) didn't even list the i-pace. I.e. If I hadn't clicked on More Cars I would have had no idea Edmunds had ever tested and evaluated this fine vehicle. A rather strange exclusion.

5 out of 5 stars, Best car ever
Mike Heil,
HSE 4dr Hatchback AWD (electric DD)

I’ve been waiting for a non Tesla electric and I’m so glad I did. The Ipace is incredible. My other car is a gl63 amg and love my ipace more

5 out of 5 stars, I'm right there with all of the other owners!
JWS,
SE 4dr Hatchback AWD (electric DD)

There's very little to say that all of the reviews above have said, but I'm absolutely with them. It's my first electric car as I was waiting until one really struck me. After doing months of research, I made the switch and I've never looked back. It's beautiful, fast, awesome and man is it cool never having to go to the gas station. Best car I've ever owned and I've owned a bunch.

Jaguar I-Pace vs. the competition

Jaguar I-Pace vs. Tesla Model 3

The Model 3 is Tesla's most affordable model. This sedan provides excellent driving dynamics, lots of range, plenty of power, and an avant-garde interior. Overall, we like the Model 3, although Tesla's choice to move almost all vehicle controls into the touchscreen leads to a distracting and occasionally frustrating experience. If you're looking for a smaller and less expensive EV than the I-Pace, the Model 3 isn't a bad choice.

Compare Jaguar I-Pace & Tesla Model 3 features

Jaguar I-Pace vs. Audi E-Tron

The e-tron is Audi's new EV family SUV. It offers roomy seating for five, a big trunk, and all of Audi's latest tech. It also has a trick battery cooling system that combats range loss in cold climates, and it boasts an incredibly fast-charging battery. It's not quite as sporty as the I-Pace, and it definitely looks more like a regular SUV, but that might be a strength for some shoppers.

Compare Jaguar I-Pace & Audi E-Tron features

Jaguar I-Pace vs. Tesla Model S

The original Tesla sedan is still our favorite Tesla. It's comfortable and it provides an impressive mix of both powerful and efficiency. This large sedan offers fantastic range and, depending on trim, mind-melting acceleration. Just be warned, all of this extra power and range comes with a steep price tag.

Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
