We at are kind of a skeptical bunch. We’ve seen a lot of electric concepts come and go promising out-there styling and fantastic range — but finally, we’ve found something that might melt our cold hearts in the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace.

Part of the reason I like the I-Pace so much is that it actually delivers on the promise of the styling seen on the I-Pace concept. It’s a little bit more muted because you have to fit things together for a production version — for example, it has larger side mirrors because of safety regulations. But it still looks futuristic and sleek, and it’s a low-slung SUV, which is en vogue these days.

Jaguar is also using the I-Pace to debut a few new technologies that we’ve already seen from sister brand Land Rover’s Range Rover Velar, namely Touch Pro Duo. That’s a new multimedia and all-around system used to control much of the car without any physical buttons. You have two screens in the center console and two dials that change function — sometimes they’ll be for climate, sometimes they’ll change how the car drives. It’s a way to interact with the vehicle without actually touching buttons. It’s not my favorite because I find it hard to use while driving, but our staff is actually split on that.
