Jaguar I-Pace — Jaguar I-Pace Concept is currently being displayed in 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, and it is set to compete with Tesla Model X once it is launched in 2018. Jaguar says that the concept that is being displayed is close to final so the production model will be similar to the concept. It is an excellent sign since the concept already features so many interesting things. Here are some aspects that you should know about Jaguar I-Pace. After that, you can decide for yourself whether it can compete with Tesla Model X or not.
Jaguar I-Pace Specs
When it comes to design, it is safe to say that new SUV electric car Jaguar I-Pace takes the win. It can be an excellent selling point for I-Pace considering all this time. Model X has one of the best and the most futuristic visual in all-electric vehicle class.
Furthermore, thanks to the clever engine placement, I-Pace has more room in the cabin. In fact, Jaguar also confidently claims that the cabin space is larger than other SUVs. Once again, the points go to I-Pace. Two screens will grace the dashboard. The first one is 12” touchscreen for navigation while the another one is a 5.5” screen for the infotainment system.
Engine — Jaguar I-Pace EV 2018
Now, let us move to the main point which is the powertrain. Power comes from a 90 kWh battery that produces 394 HP and 516-pound-feet of torque. It offers 220 miles range and can dash to 60 miles from the standstill in 4 seconds.
This is where Tesla Model X shows its excellence. Even though I-Pace has remarkable design and pretty nice range, when it comes to speed and performance, Model X still leading.
Even though it is not as fast as Model X, I-Pace is still an outstanding electric car. Up until the concept is displayed, the battery pack in I-Pace has the most energy dense in kW/kg. Jaguar is currently developing the pouch cell and bringing it to even better phase so we can expect even more density soon.
