Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

We've seen a lot of electric concepts come and go promising out-there styling and fantastic range, but finally, we may have found something to melt our cold hearts in the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace.

The I-Pace, a Tesla-fighting electric vehicle that Jaguar bills as the "world's most desirable [electric vehicle]," is here at long last. Jaguar revealed the car as a near-production concept at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show, promising an on-sale date in the U.S. in the second half of 2018.

That schedule remains in place. Jaguar says the 2019 I-Pace hits showrooms later this year, and shoppers can place orders with dealers now. 

 

Power and Range
With standard all-wheel drive and an electric motor at each axle, the I-Pace makes 394 horsepower and 512 pounds-feet of torque — enough to hit 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, according to Jaguar. Those numbers are down a bit from the I-Pace Concept, and they're a bit slower than the current Model S, whose 75D variant hits the mark in the low 4s. But the I-Pace's 90-kilowatt-hour battery pack gets a Jaguar-estimated range of "up to 240 miles" on a full charge. That's up 20 miles from what the brand targeted in EPA cycles when the concept arrived.

Charging Times
On a 240-volt Level 2 home charger, an empty I-Pace can hit 80 percent charge in about 10 hours, or to 100 percent charge in about 13 hours, Jaguar says. On 100-kilowatt DC quick charging, 80 percent takes 40 minutes. The standard air springs can lower the I-Pace up to nearly half an inch at highway speeds to reduce drag; adaptive shock absorbers are optional.

Drivers can dial up aggressive enough regenerative braking ...

On 100-kilowatt DC quick charging, 80 percent takes 40 minutes. The standard air springs can lower the I-Pace up to nearly half an inch at highway speeds to reduce drag; adaptive shock absorbers are optional.

Drivers can dial up aggressive enough regenerative braking to enable single-pedal driving — a feature some battery-powered cars now offer — in situations that require modest deceleration.

Concept to Production
The production I-Pace all but carries over from the concept, save some larger mirrors and rearranged bumper details. Wheels range up to 22 inches in diameter; door handles motor out when touched. The I-Pace's various openings (faux or not) suggest a low-slung gasoline vehicle, not an electric car — in marked contrast to Tesla, which embraces opening-free minimalism. Naturally, Jaguar markets all of this as an SUV, a trendy descriptor thrown at cars these days that are anything but. Decide for yourself.

More surprising is the interior. Aside from some new materials and air vents, the cabin largely carries over from the concept's whimsical cockpit. A prominent center console stretches toward the dashboard, splitting into a pair of flying buttresses at one point to house buttons for the gear selector and driving modes. Above them is a 5.5-inch screen with climate controls and floating physical dials — similar to that of the Range Rover Velar from Land Rover, Jaguar's sibling brand. A 10-inch display sits above, while a separate, 12.3-inch gauge display sits beyond the steering wheel.

The five-seat interior brings the concept's "Star Trek" lounge accommodations back to earth, but a continuous glass panel over both rows keeps with the concept's. Jaguar touts the footprint of its F-Pace SUV but "the interior space of a larger vehicle" thanks to the I-Pace's electric architecture. Indeed, Jaguar says storage space in the center console amounts to 0.43 cubic feet thanks to the absence of a transmission tunnel. Base trim levels have Luxtec vinyl upholstery; two grades of leather or a wool-and-cloth blend are optional.

Trim Levels, Tax Credits
Trim levels are the S, SE, HSE and First Edition; Jaguar will limit the First Edition to only the I-Pace's first year. All will come standard with five years' bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage and free maintenance throughout, and the battery specs indicate the I-Pace should have no trouble securing a maximum $7,500 federal tax credit for qualifying taxpayers.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
