Jaguar I-Pace EV Priced From $70,495* In US, On Sale Later This Year

The all-electric Jaguar I-Pace has made its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show, with the company also announcing the US pricing of its first electric vehicle.

The new electric SUV is priced from $70,495, including destination and handling fees, before federal and local government incentives.

Jaguar retailers across the US are already accepting customer orders for the I-Pace, with first deliveries to begin during the second half of 2018.

This makes the new Jaguar I-Pace $10,205 cheaper from the Tesla Model X 75D, which starts from $80,700 before any incentives.

Jaguar’s electric mid-sized SUV is powered by two motors mounted on each axle, producing a combined 395hp (400PS) and 513lb-ft (696Nm) of torque. Feeding them is a 90kWh battery pack that gives the new I-Pace an EPA-estimated driving range of 240 miles.

0-60mph comes in 4.5 seconds while the top speed is rated at 124mph. Owners will be able to charge their I-Pace using both AC and DC power; a 0 to 80 percent charge can be completed in around 40 minutes via a 100kW public fast charger or just over 10 hours with a Level 2 230V/32amp home charger.

“With the debut of the Jaguar I-PACE, Jaguar in the U.S. is officially in the luxury electric vehicle business and our retailers and customers are placing orders,” said Joe Eberhardt, President and CEO of Jaguar Land Rover North America.  “In partnership with our retailers who are investing in new facilities and EV infrastructure, we have a proactive market strategy led by very competitive pricing and the Jaguar EliteCare electric vehicle ownership package.

Jaguar Land Rover retailers in the US have already begun installation of EV charging equipment and they are already invested in training their sales and service personnel to better address the EV market.

  • As good as it looks, you buy a Tesla and you basically cross the country from coast to coast free of charge while using rapid charging, that are growing like mushrooms in all states. So, it may be $10k cheaper, but it’s smaller and no charging infrastructure means it’s just a fancy shopping cart.

      And put up with Tesla’s build quality? I don’t think so. I’m not paying 10k extra for a Model X compared to the I Pace and even then there is a charging infrastructure independent of Tesla. Yeah, you could drive cross country using Tesla’s network but how many people are going to be doing that in an EV?

      The I Pace, like many EVs, are going to be seen mostly in the city and suburbs.

      • Not really. You do not need such large battery pack in the city. People who buy these EV’s with large and heavy battery packs expect their car to be able to go for long journeys. I know I am. If it’s a city car, why weight it down? If it’s a long distance traveler, why no infrastructure?

        The Tesla build quality issues are exaggerated, and it comes mostly from online kids who have never seen the car up-close. Why do you think the owners are so satisfied? Why are there taxi fleets with several hundred thousand miles on them? Besides, Jag is not known for their impeccable quality either.

        Buying a min. 70k car and then not be able to go to the beach 400 miles away, now that’s going to be a surprise for their owners.

      if you pay 10k more, the charging infrastructure is not free of charge

      • 400 kWh A YEAR INCLUDED.

          Included in a higher price compared to the Jag

      • You pay for the infrastructure but NOT for charging. These are two separate things. In the Jag you pay for charging, yet the infrastructure is in its baby phase. That’s a double loss.

        • BobV12

          It is the same thing in the end. How many kWh you’ll get at home for 10k ?

          • Your home is not all over the country. Please check the infrastructure of Tesla (and how many people complain that they don’t post profit – of course not, they invest unlike any other (very rich) brand), and then check the public charging infrastructure. You jump in a Tesla and you drive from NY to LA. You jump in your Jag and you get stuck by the time your battery depletes, or best case scenario you can charge it for couple of hours before you continue your trip. People don’t realize what a massive advantage Tesla has. This is coming from someone who loves European cars and would prefer Jag having the same, as I also like it more inside and out than the Model X.

          • BobV12

            Aren’t there charging spots on mall parking lots or alongside highways ? Here in France it is the case. Cities and private companies are investing, Tesla only has a few. Enough to cover our smaller territory with 200-300 km between each tesla’s spot. In the mean time there are hundreds of other charging stations available.

          • There are, for Teslas, 120 kW super chargers. You can’t use those with the Jag, what you can are the spare 50 kW rapid chargers that will mean 2 hours of charging – if you can find a working free spot that is. Because unlike Tesla, the gov and private companies don’t install 10+ charging points at one station to make sure that you will have a free spot when you get there. People leave their cars at Auchan to charge forever while they shop, blocking the spots. Tesla does not allow this.

          • BobV12

            True that the power difference is a plus for Tesla. But things are evolving rapidly, Tesla will not be the only nor best on this for long

          • Cassandra

            Tesla infrastructure is an advantage for only a year or so.

    I like it better than the other little SUV they just released. This actually has a luxury interior.

    They still put grills on electric cars….come on stop pretending to be a ICE vehicle. Model X still looks better inside and out. it’s worth the 10K premium.

  • I WONDER IS THIS FOR THE “FIRST EDITION” WHICH IS BASICALLY LOADED. THE SITE IS STILL NOT SHOWING PRICES.

  • DMJ

    I think that Model X sales in Europe will be afected. The Jaguar is from a renowed carmaker. they have a big retailer network, surely will have a better construction and materials. And the model X is just too big for European roads. IMO, in Europe, Tesla is the Model S and nothing more.
