      Some prefer this Jag instead of latest Piano Art Deco of Tesla.. and btw i never seen a Jag delivered to customers with different trims on door panels like Tesla did.. cutting costs by putting quality check robots instead of humans has more downsides than it looks.. shipping oversea to Europe only ads extra costs to the cars making all Tesla overpriced, so we are tired of the bull-craps from Elon.. i'm looking more to Volvo Polestar..

      I had a Model S for a testride and i had a I Pace for a testride. The seats in the Model S are more comfy but the I Pace is a real drivers car and much more practical. They weight of 2208 kg is ok when you compare it with a Cayenne or a Q5.

      I-Pace is cheaper than a Model S because it has way less equipment than the Tesla as standard. Tesla is almost loaded with the base price model, and it's not as thirsty as the Jag.

      Kris Patt, FYI, my I-Pace easily achieves 260 miles range in the 4degC weather we currently have in the UK. There is no way that even a new X will get 25% more than that under the same conditions. If you look at Bjorn’s videos on the comparison of his 100D X and the I-Pace, the I-Pace is more efficient at lower speeds and almost the same at 75mph.

      I-Pace In US has standard Air Suspension.

      Free Charging is no longer available from Tesla.

      Certainly in the UK there is 4x number of Rapid Chargers compared to Tesla Superchargers, and 3x across Europe. Probably CCS chargers will overtake Tesla Superchargers in the US next year.

      Don’t get me wrong, Tesla make a good EV. But I think they are overpriced and people think their tech is better that everyone else’s, which is not the case.

      Even the most expensive P100DL with all the options, doesn’t have HUD, CarPlay, Android Auto, WiFi Hotspot and costs a staggering amount of money.

      The Jaguar I-Pace has been designed and engineered by a small niche car company that specialises in luxury performance sports cars. Tesla is a trying to be a mass car manufacturer but still charge very high prices for their cars.

      You get big screen, a dubious Autopilot that is not safe ( it will even let the driver get out of his seat). You don’t get a high quality car, you get an EV.

      Oh, warranty is not tech as far as I remember. Even Kia offer a similar warranty on their ICE cars.

      You still haven’t offered me any super tech that the Tesla has that is not offered by the I-Pace.

      @John W a three year old X 90D has 25% better range than a new 90kwh I-Pace. Not sure if I-Pace has standard air suspension, 8 year unlimited mile warranty on engine and battery, free charging and a autopilot that are good.

      John W In reply to Kris Patt

      Kris Patt so what super tech does it provide that the I-Pace does not?

      I know we can leave our door pockets, lights on sun visor mirrors, rear arm rest and cup holders, sun glasses holder, rear coat hangers, grab handles above doors. You know, all the normal things you expect in a car. But what tech does it offer that the I-Pace doesn’t?

      Interestingly, base 100D in the UK is £88k.

    • Kris Patt
      Kris Patt In reply to Kris Patt

      @John W With the 75D base model gone, off course 100D/P100D is the only one left. And that will cost a lot more. The S is on its 7th year now, but includes everything as standard, except autopilot. I-Pace comes in 3 different editions.
      Base model S100D is £74k in Norway. 
      Base model I-Pace S is £58k, SE is £64,6k and the HSE £69k.

      John W In reply to Kris Patt

      Kris Patt, let me know what super tech the base Model S has that you think the I-Pace is missing. And remember, the 75kW S is no longer available, so the price difference is massive, £30k in the UK. In fact, for the price of a fully specified Model S, you can buy two, yes two, I-Pace S versions.

      @Riggald Are you aware that as part of the Brexit deal we will not be making the switch? this will cause more fragmentation within the industry, my argument is that the one company who makes the most electric cars wanted to share the technology with other car makers so that all electric cars will have no problems with charging.

      The strong impression is created that this is a better value for money than a Tesla. Doing any amount of research will show that it isn't. The motors are notoriously inefficient, there is no high-speed charging network, there is no auto-pilot and it has a lot less interior space compared to even a Model S (never mind the Model X which is just way bigger). The price difference is small but the feature set and size differences make it fall far short of Tesla. It's a nice first attempt by Jaguar and the best car in the EV space seen to date (aside from anything made by Tesla). But this review misses all the important points. Also the repeated "especially for an electric car" seems to imply that they usually aren't up to the level of ICE cars; aside from range this is just silly. I get the impression the reviewer hasn't driven many (any?) others.

      Teun Segers Autopilot is a complete waste of time in the Tesla. Proven to kill people and dangerous when in use. They have had in BETA test stage of development from day one. Pointless arguing with a Tesla Fanboy. Tesla can do no wrong their eyes. The fact that Jaguar is a car manufacturer that has produced a CAR with an electric drivetrain that drives like a car, is a testament to Jaguar. It demonstrates that a CAR can have an electric drivetrain. Tesla makes and EV, they have not got a clue how to make a car. The X is a bus and drives like one. The S has the most uncomfortable rear seats ever put in an EV.

    • Riggald
      Riggald In reply to Teun Segers

      @Teun Segers You specifically discussed the motor efficiency, rather than the vehicle efficiency. The I-Pace motors are more efficient than the Model S and Model X motor efficiency.
      Because the 75D model S and Model X have now been withdrawn from the market, their entry-level prices are $94k and $97k respectively, compared with the I-Pace entry-level price of $69.9k.
      As you point out, much of this is straight-forward to search for - so I'm surprised that you make the claims.

      Adrian Brophy In reply to Teun Segers

      All of this is subjective but regarding the size difference with a Tesla, this is actually a plus point here in the UK where we have lots of old narrow roads. My friend has a Tesla S and it is a glorious thing but actually a little oversized for Europe. Hence this Jag is a compelling alternative simply for offering a different form factor that Tesla hasn't covered. Choice is a good thing.

      about 5 months ago
    • Teun Segers
      Teun Segers In reply to Teun Segers

      ​@Riggald Ah more interesting statements, let's see how well informed they are:
      "The motors are more efficient than the motors in the Model S or Model X." -> I already debunked this, but here's a nice quote for you from NextMove "That makes the larger, heavier Model X around 23% more efficient than the Jaguar I-PACE." and a few more sources: https://insideevs.com/2019-jaguar-i-pace-tesla-model-x-comparo/ , https://www.autoblog.com/2018/03/08/jaguar-i-pace-vs-tesla-model-x-s-comparison/?guccounter=1 . Typically the 90kWh battery in the much smaller iPace gets you slightly less range than the Model X with a 75kWh battery. This is factual evidence that the iPace is very inefficient. It's actually one of the most inefficient EVs on the market today.
      "There are 8,000 DC Fast Chargers and High Power Chargers across North America and Europe. Tesla has about 7,000, and so far they are all only Fast Chargers - there are no Tesla High Power Chargers yet." -> I'm not sure what you mean here. What is a fast charger according to you and what is a high power charger? In real numbers: The Jag can take 50kW from a charger max (announced to be 100kW later). There are almost 0 public 100kW chargers around currently, the fastest you'll actually find are 50kW (most are only 22). Tesla superchargers deliver 125kW in their current version (faster updates are being rolled out) and they are pretty much everywhere in the US and Western Europe.
      "Like the Teslas, you can option the Jag with adaptive cruise-control and lane-sensing auto-steer." -> This is true, but how does it compare to Autopilot? SO far autopilot has beaten everything in the space.
      "In the front two rows of seating, there is more combined leg and head room, front and rear than in either the Model S or Model X - probably because the I-Pace has a longer wheelbase than either of them." -> The wheelbase difference is exactly 1 inch. I simply don't know the seating space in an iPace, but it is ample in a Model X. It doesn't really make sense to have more unless you're making a limo, which the iPace isn't.
      "In the USA, the price difference is now $24k." -> Not really ~US$15K. In Europe the gap is even smaller. https://cars.usnews.com/cars-trucks/jaguar/i-pace
      Almost everything you said took 1 Google search to refute. What is the point of spreading this misinformation? Do you work for Jag? Are you such a fan of Jaguar that doing this makes you feel better? I don't really get it. If you like the Jag more than a Tesla; sure, have fun. Buy 2. But no need to lie about what it can do.
