The EPA has set the new 2019 I-Pace’s all-electric range at 234 miles, slightly less than Jaguar’s anticipated 240 miles. That translates into about 374 kilometers in our neck of the woods, still less than the electric luxury SUV’s main competitors.
Although pricier, the Tesla Model X gets a minimum of 381 kilometers while the top-of-the-line Model X P100d gets 475 kilometers. The new 2019 Mercedes-Benz EQC introduced last month promises 279 miles or 450 kilometers while the Audi E-Tron can reach 400 kilometers according to early info. Even the new Hyundai Kona EV gets more than 400 kilometers.
In other words, should we be disappointed about the new I-Pace’s range? Maybe, but we should also be reminded that it will provide more than enough power for your daily if not weekly transport needs. And it still looks damn good.
With 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque from two electric engines and a 90-kWh battery, it will rocket to 100 km/h in under 5.0 seconds. All-wheel drive and a torque vectoring system will keep you pointed in the right direction. Price is set at $86,500.
