2020 Jaguar I-Pace review

is it practical enough to convince you to buy an electric car or an electric SUV that’s what we’ll find out in this review and remember we don’t just review cars at Walker we can help save you

thousands on your next new car just go to what car calm and go to a new car deal section first though let’s see what it’s like to drive powering the ipace are two electric

motors which together pump out 395 brake horsepower and that’s enough to get this car from naught to 60 in just four point five seconds which is quicker than most

cars let alone electric or SUV as with all electric cars you get the maximum amount of pulling power straight away so as soon as you put your foot down you feel this savage acceleration which is

really impressive now the range is 298 miles but don’t expect to get that in the real world we put it through our range test which is a mixture of different roads and it’s still managed

and impressive 253 miles on its standard suspension the ipace smothers the harshness of the most bumps whether you’re crawling around town or pushing

on the motorway our only criticism is that because of its weight and height the ipace can struggle to regain its composure after a tricky series of bumps

the optional air suspension allows you to choose between comfort orientated or firmer settings the latter of which firms up the I paces body movements and allows it to be quite composed around

the corners that said the standard suspension is good enough so we’d go for that and save your pennies and if it’s ultimate comfort that you’re after avoid

the big wheels and go for the 18-inch ones instead we’ve already mentioned this cars weight and it’s no surprise if you cram it full

of batteries it’s going to be quite heavy and you can feel that weight shifting when you go through corners at speed that said it does hold on to its

chosen line pretty well and it’s precise quick steering makes this actually really good fun to drive especially for an electric car Road and wind noise is

well contained especially on cars with laminated side windows and small wheels there is however a little bit of suspension noise over some of the

harshest bumps the ipace can even cut it off road thanks to clever hill climbing and descent systems borrowed from Jaguars sister company Land Rover you

don’t sit especially high up in the I pasted by SUV standards but there are part electrically adjustable seats so you should be able to find a comfortable

driving position forward visibility is excellent over the shoulder not quite so good because of the thick rear pillar and also the sloping window however you

do get a camera a standard which is perfect for parking although it is a little bit laggy so be careful on how quickly you’re trying to park material

quality has long been a weakness of Jaguars but the AI paces every bit of premium product sure these plastics are not going to give Aldi a run for their

money but they are much better than those found in the e pace and F face every eye face comes with a twelve point three inch touchscreen infotainment

system as well as a second screen the same size behind the steering wheel which takes the place of standard dolls this can put things such as the sat-nav

map directly in your field of vision meaning you can keep your eyes on the road there are plenty of neat features to make use of for example your eye pace

can learn driver preferences who have their own key fobs and it’s the first Jaguar to offer apple carplay smart frame mirroring there’s also another

screen down here for your climate control settings thankfully though you do get some rotary dials for quick access you’re unlikely to have any

problems with leg or Headroom in the front of the Jaguar ipace because there’s plenty of it even if you’re really tall

and the front seats are set far enough apart that you won’t be rubbing elbows either but where it really comes into its own is the bucket loads of storage

first of all underneath this central cubby we have got a family of bananas which also fit their decent sized bottle of water to fit in the door bins which

are quite spacious mobile-phone pop it in that slot there hairbrush lipgloss another storage there and sunglasses and I could have fitted more in there as well

and the glove box is a reasonable size space in the back is pretty good even if you’re six-foot although you may feel slightly claustrophobic just because of

this sloping roofline otherwise head and legroom is plentiful anybody who’s sitting in the middle seats however has a very hard

uncomfortable backrest compared with the plush comfy seat I’ve got here and there’s no option for a seven-seater unlike the Tesla where you can the

absence of an engine in the ipace means that the whole passenger compartment can be positioned further forward and that usually frees up extra space for the

boots the eyepieces isn’t as large as you might expect though we managed to fit seven carry-on suitcases inside which is less than you’ll be able to fit

in a regular SUV such as the Audi q5 still it is a usable shape and it has a wide opening which makes it easier to get bulky items in and out and if you

need to create more space you can split and fold the rear seats and that gives you a virtually flat floor underneath here is where all the charging cables

are stowed and there’s a small amount of space underneath the bonnet as well the Jaguar ipace is an expensive choice in the electric car market so it’s not going to convert millions of people to

electric motoring on its own it is however cheaper to buy them both of Tesla’s Model X and s and is also cheaper on a pcp monthly deal you can recharge the batteries from 0 to 80% in

10 hours from a standard wall charger if you’re out using one of the higher capacity bleep ones cut that time down to 80 minutes and it will also work off a hundred kilowatt charger which takes

just 40 minutes but there’s not many of those just yet in the UK the eye faces are also exempt from the London congestion charge and qualifies for the government’s electric vehicle grant

entry level S models come with lots of luxuries including keyless entry jewel zone climate control and automatic emergency braking while upgrading to SE trim gets you larger wheels adaptive

cruise control an additional safety kit such as blind spot monitoring system there’s also the range-topping HSE trim which brings heated and cooled seats

among other things but we think the S makes the most sense there’s two other nifty things to note firstly there’s a Jaguar in control app which allows you to set climate control and heat up the

battery so it’s at its most efficient when you set off and a second just like Tesla you get automatic updates wirelessly so new features and improvements could be unlocked further

down the line all in all the ipace is an appealing electric car it offers a big range in between charges engaging handling and futuristic.
