Jaguar I-Pace Could Be Significantly Cheaper Than The Tesla Model X

The Jaguar I-Pace is inching closer to production and now we’re starting to get an idea how much the model will cost when it goes on sale next year.

According to Autoblog.nl, the entry-level I-Pace S will start at €82,000 and come equipped with LED headlights, a Meridian audio system, and 18-inch alloy wheels. An additional €8,000 will get drivers the I-Pace SE which features leather upholstery, a power-operated tailgate, adaptive cruise control, and 20-inch alloy wheels.

The I-Pace HSE is slated to start at €97,000 and come with additional equipment such as 18-way power front seats, heated seats, a Meridian surround sound system, and LED Matrix headlights. Buyers who want a fully-loaded model can reportedly opt for the I-Pace First Edition which costs €106,00 and includes all the aforementioned equipment as well as a panorama glass roof, a head-up display, and an air suspension.

Since prices vary by country, Jalopnik reached out to the automaker and a spokesperson hinted the model would cost 10-15% more than the F-Pace which starts at $42,065. While that seems to imply the model could cost between $46,271 and $48,374, the F-Pace S starts at $59,775 which would presumably mean the I-Pace S would retail for between $65,752 and $68,741.

Jaguar hasn’t released final specifications but the I-Pace concept had a 90 kWh battery and an electric powertrain developed approximately 400 hp (298 kW) and 516 lb-ft (698 Nm) of torque. This enabled the crossover to accelerate from 0-60 mph in approximately four seconds and travel up to 220 miles (354 km) on a single charge.

    Slash the capacity in half (and the price in the mean time), and I’ll take one

  • It depends on the final specifications and price, if they manage to sell 220 miles car for 60k USD then yeah it’s good value for money.

    I think range and efficiency is what those start up like Faraday should think of, we all not gonna drive electric car for acceleration mind you.

    “I-Pace Could Be Significantly Cheaper Than The Tesla Model X”

    A base Model X is $80k. How much cheaper should a Jaguar SUV be? Isn’t Jaguar supposed to be a luxury brand? Though, without a decent fast charging infrastructure like Tesla offers, “significantly cheaper” is probably what the I-pace will be worth. I’m sure it’ll be prettier and much more conventional than the Model X. But in my experience, the electronics in JLR vehicles are never fully baked. I wouldn’t touch another Jaguar/Land Rover vehicle even if it cost a third of what a Model X costs.

    • I think significant is a bit too much for this article, they say it will start at 60k USD. But if they get the same range than yes it would be cheaper.

      And really? I always thought modern JLR electronics is okay, not the best but surely far from early Ford days.

        Believe it or not, the Ford days were JLR’s golden years. Pre 80s Jaguars were awful, and the current ones aren’t much better.

        • Of course compared to BL era Jags, Anything is better but I think current Jag is also experiencing renaissance, they got almost unlimited money from Tata (and they still rumored to lost money on JLR) and they manage to branch out their car range.

          And yes all of it weren’t happening if Ford didn’t take Jag first, but being Ford. They put the corporate accountant on Jag and force them to share parts with other cars (Mind you, that’s not necessarily a bad thing but compare to BMW or Audi of the day. It’s just feels less special).

            It’s a matter of opinion,but a Ford era XJ or XK feels more special than a BMW or Audi. Slightly different target audiences, but…

          • Yeah again, everyone has their own taste and preference. I agree though XJR from that Era feel so British and Majestic.
