Jaguar Pits I-Pace EV Against Tesla Model X In 0-60-0 Race

Instead of waiting for the inevitable drag race to happen, Jaguar went out and brought not one but two Tesla Model Xs to race against the new I-Pace EV.

With the kind help of Mitch Evans and Tony Kanaan, Jaguar organized a 0-60-0 race between the new I-Pace and the Tesla Model X in its 75D and 100D versions.

The new Jaguar I-Pace offers a combined 395hp and 513lb-ft of torque from its two electric motors. A 90kWh battery pack is the only choice and makes sure that the new British electric SUV has a range of up to 298 miles on the WLTP, and 240 miles according to EPA.

Jaguar claims a 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.8). Kerb weight is set at 2133kg (4702lbs). Sounds like a lot but it still is lighter than the physically bigger Tesla Model X, which in 75D guise tips the scales at 2,300kg (5140lbs) and in the 100D version at 2,459kg (5421lbs). The British company also ensured that the weight distribution is the perfect 50-50 in order to handle like a true Jaguar.

The results of the race are pretty surprising; we’re not really used in seeing a Tesla losing a race but the Jaguar I-Pace appears to have beaten both Model X versions with a relative ease.

Of course this being a race set up by Jaguar kind of makes us all take it with a grain of salt, but until the independent drag races take place, this will have to do for now.

    A Vin Diesel copy.

    • Ilbirs

      In reality Tony Kanaan is 8/9 of Vin Diesel and all that isn’t in height is compensated by the nose.

      • ErnieB

        This guy is like 4 feet tall!

        • Ilbirs

          In reality Kanaan is 5’5″ (1.65 m). What makes him look apparently shorter than this is not only being aside Natalie Pinkham (5’6″/1.66 m and heels) and Mitch Evans (5′8 1/2″/1.74 m) but also his body proportions, as his legs have almost the same length of the torso, his arms are very long the shoulders are wide for someone that tall.

    This site “forgot” to title the article “The Jaguar BEAT the Tesla”…Because we all know if it was the other around, this site would have 5 articles up within minutes of each other with cheesy “Tesla wins again…,” “Tesla wins drag race…”Tesla, Tesla, Tesla!”

    Key stats: Tesla Model X, which in 75D guise tips the scales at 2,300kg (5140lbs) and in the 100D version at 2,459kg (5421lbs)!!! = TESLA WINS THE FAT PIG AWARD!

    • Moveon Libtards

      The biggest question to ask…

      How many Model X’s has Tesla sold recently? Lol

  • ErnieB

    Lol.. I trust this as much as I trust Trump.. ludicrous mode was probably not engaged..

    • Michael Karkafiris

      The Tesla Model X 100D doesn’t have a Ludicrous mode, only the P100D does

    • Six_Tymes

      HEIL HILARY!

  • Kagan

    Front mounted engine cars usually don’t have 50/50 weight distribution. They even tend to get worse the never construction it is. The best ones maybe have 52/48 some 55/45. The heavier engine the worse. So don’t believe in commercials!

    • Ilbirs

      The I-Pace is electric, with each axle having one motor and the battery between them.

    • KidRed

      This isn’t an ICE car. It’s an EV with 2 motors, one on the front axle and 1 on the rear axle capping the ends of a floor of batteries. Sounds like the exact formula to follow if you want 50/50 weight distribution. What commercials are you watching?

      • Kagan

        You thought I missed that.

        It was speaking in general and specifically triggered by the statement so it feels like a true jaguar. If you missed it true jaguars have always been ICE.

        • Status

          The I-Pace IS a true Jaguar.

          • Kagan

            Another one not following!

          • Status

            And you’re certainly not leading. There is nothing written anywhere that a Jag must have an ICE. You, personally, want it to be so, but since you can’t have things your way, you’re going to simply refuse to realize that the I-Pace is a real Jaguar.

            Really, your own eyes are lying, and you want others to believe your lying eyes.

          • Kagan

            I am certainly leading you by at least 3 months. You are not just behind you are also lost!

  • Bash

    That jag looks so cool..

  • F30FLORIPA

    FAKE

  • Sébastien

    Comparing a 4m70 car vs something that +5m… Sure, talk about fair comparison.

  • TheBelltower

    The Jag looks amazing. If they can make it feel as special as the X and avoid the electrical gremlins of typical JLR vehicles, then they’ll have a winner.

  • UGH! Another Tesla Story

  • Six_Tymes

    i bet it would look even better in black

  • MP4-12C

    Jaguar was able to create a real Tesla competitor and yet Germans still don’t have any answer to that?

  • Bill

    Tesla could fix this with a software update…..

  • JBsC6

    I pace is both beautiful to look at and quicker to sixty than both the tesla model x 100 and 75 .

    That was a surprise and impressive.
