How the Jaguar I-PACE Has Evolved Over the Years

Jaguar got into the business of luxury
electric SUVs
earlier than most. While Tesla beat the British brand to the punch, the company launched its
electric vehicle
, the I-PACE, before rivals like BMW, Mercedes, and Porsche.
But as the segment becomes more crowded, Jaguar has struggled to keep theI-PACE in the limelight. Its battery range of 234 miles might’ve been competitive in 2019, but as other models pass the 300-mile mark, the list of reasons to buy the I-PACE has become shorter and shorter.
Help may be on the horizon. The 2023 model’s EPA range has yet to be revealed.

Small changes made to the I-PACE since 2019

​​In 2019, the Jaguar I-PACE was the only non-Tesla luxury EV to maker
Car and Driver
’s “Best EVs and Hybrids” list. The magazine praised the crossover’s handling and its styling inside and out. The company’s first EV was “a promising sign of things to come in the world of EVs.”
Since then, the company has largely rode the I-PACE’s first wave of success. The 2020 Jaguar I-PACE got an updated infotainment and navigation systems, an available 4G data plan, and a wireless phone charger. Battery charging times and
driver-assist features
also improved. 
The “Pivi Pro” infotainment system received more updates in 2021, and small changes were given to the EV’s stereo, charging rate, and styling this year as well. Otherwise, it’s remained basically the same car it was in 2019.

The one thing that needs to change but hasn’t: battery range

When Jaguar launched the I-PACE in 2019, Car and Driver says its 90.0-kWh battery offered 234 miles of range. That didn’t quite put it at the front of the pack—that year’s
Tesla Model X
had an EPA-rated range of 295 miles—but it was a decent range for the time.
Times have changed. The electric SUV market has exploded. And while some offerings like the Audi e-tron and Volvo C40 Recharge have similar ranges to the I-PACE, the
Ford Mustang Mach-E
, Hyundai Ioniq 5, and Rivian R1S surpassed 300-mile EPA-rated ranges.
Jaguar has announce a few details about the 2023 I-PACE, but the key spec—the car’s range—is yet to be determined. 
News of a longer lasting battery could be in the wings, but it will need to be a massive update to compete with the segment’s top dog. The latest Tesla Model X’s EPA-rated range is 349 miles.

Jaguar I-PACE ownership costs over the years

Despite a lot of upheaval in the EV market, the Jaguar I-PACE has stayed at a similar price since it debuted in 2019. The starting sticker for the
electric crossover
has jumped from $69,500 to $71,300 in its five-year run.
Average
car insurance
is unsurprisingly high for the I-PACE, landing at about $3,000 a year for coverage, but Jerry can help you save money on your policy.
