Jaguar calls its first all-electric I-Pace Concept a “[smart] five-seater sports car; a performance car, a family car, and an SUV all in one.” But we think it’s a dead ringer for the Tesla Model X. Except, of course, for the Tesla’s three-row seating and funky, trouble-prone falcon-wing rear doors.
Dig deeper and you’ll find that Jaguar wants the I-Pace EV to have a competitive driving range and charging times to rival even the mighty Tesla. With a 90-kWh lithium-ion battery pack and motors designed and engineered by Jaguar Land Rover, the company projects that the all-wheel drive I-Pace will deliver around 220 miles of cruising range and suggests the average user would need to charge the vehicle just once a week. The company claims the I-Pace can get an 80 percent charge in 90 minutes and 100 percent charge in just over 2 hours using 50-kW DC charging.
