6 Cars Similar to the Jaguar I-Pace

The venerated British brand Jaguar entered the all-electric vehicle market in 2019, with the Jaguar I-Pace for a base price of $71,050. The battery-powered luxury SUV market isn’t very crowded. Essentially, Tesla spearheads it, while Audi, Volkswagen, Volvo, and Porsche round it out. With such a new field, there’s not much competition for the luxury market.

Expanding to the overall all-electric market, there is a much larger field, including the I-Pace’s look-alike, the Chevrolet Volt.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), you can drive 234 miles on a fully charged battery with this Jag. The Jag manages to provide the average mileage for a battery charge in the segment. A 90-kilowatt battery powers the vehicle with a pair of electric motors that produce 394 horsepower and torque of 512-pound feet. Like other Jags, you’ll find all-wheel drive comes standard.

You can count on this Jag for a comfortable, cozy ride. Its quiet operation offers an enjoyable road trip vehicle and as a five-passenger crossover SUV, lets you take the family everywhere. Entertain the mass with its infotainment system with two touchscreens – an upper 10-inch touchscreen and a lower 5-inch touchscreen.

The I-Pace offers a superb standard selection of safety equipment, including a parking assistant, a rearview camera, and parking sensors. Other helpful standard items include heated side mirrors and memory mode for mirrors.

For 2022, the I-Pace’s main competitors include the Tesla Model Y, Audi e-tron Premium, and Volvo XC40 Recharge. The Ford Mustang Mach-E and Volkswagen ID.4 are also new to the market for those who don’t need a luxury brand.

Despite loving the I-Pace, you might not find it available locally. If you want to buy an SUV today instead of having one shipped or needing to travel to pick up a car, you can shop for an alternative vehicle among the I-Pace’s competitors. Here’s a quick list of our favorites, starting with our top three, then providing the runners-ups.

Alternative 1: Tesla Model S

The Tesla Model S costs more than the I-Pace with a base price of $89,990, but you gain an unfathomable 405 miles of range on a full battery charge, according to the EPA. Unlike some sluggish electric cars, the Tesla provides performance like that of a race car, accelerating from a standstill to 60 mph in a tiny 3.1 seconds. How many electric cars could your drag race in? Well, this Tesla, definitely.

Why It’s Similar to the I-Pace

Alright, maybe you want a family car, but the I-Pace provides that, too. It can comfortably seat five passengers and provide 28.1 cubic feet of cargo space with all the seats in place. That’s a lot of room for groceries and sundries. This Tesla also comes replete with safety features like automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and autopilot. It comes with four cameras and a dozen monitoring sensors for use in its driver assistants.

Vehicle Design Observations

The jaunty Model S looks every bit the sports car although it is technically a sedan that offers more cargo room than some compact crossover SUVs. And it doesn’t show in its design, which Elon Musk ensured appears sleek, slick, and worthy of a Michael Mann chase scene. This Tesla pours on the luxury and if you need more, you can choose its Plaid trim.

Speed/Time for 0 to 60 miles per hour: 3.1 seconds

Horsepower: 670 hp

Torque: 723 lb. ft.

Base Model Cost: $89,990

Seating Capacity: Five

Fuel Efficiency: 405 miles per full battery charge

Towing Capacity: 2,000 pounds

Alternative 2: Audi Q4 e-tron GT

There’s a cost jump in the next alternative to I-Pace because this Audi starts at $103,895. It offers twin engines producing 522 horsepower and 229-pound feet of torque. Despite that power, the time to accelerate from 0 to 60 is 7.9 seconds, a bit sluggish for a luxe sedan. You can haul 2,600 pounds with it and go off-road when needed.

Why It’s Similar to the I-Pace

In all honesty, it hits this list because it uses all-electric like the I-Pace. The Q4 e-tron goes wild on the inside with multiple digital displays and upscale leather seats. Vegans rejoice. The automaker does offer a leather-free package, but unlike other manufacturers, Audi assumes you want to enjoy the opulence of sitting in leather on a road trip. This likely outweighs your love of the animal kingdom. You can scale down if you like. It still seats five and you’ll enjoy lots of legroom as will the passengers.

Vehicle Design Observations

The Audi Q4 e-tron GT and Jaguar I-Pace diverge at this point because Audi pours on the luxury. You can add heated and cooled front and rear seats with included massage functions. Choose from wheel sizes of 19 inches up to 21 inches. Regardless of the trim you choose, Car and Driver lauds its stable handling and the natural feel of its driving.

Speed/Time for 0 to 60 miles per hour: 4.7 seconds

Horsepower: 522 hp

Torque: 472 lb. ft.

Base Model Cost: $103,895

Seating Capacity: Five

Fuel Efficiency: 238 miles on a full battery charge

Towing capacity: 4,000 pounds

Alternative 3: Mercedes-Benz EQC400

Mercedes-Benz did something completely different with its EQC400. Sure, it still offers the all-electric operation, but the venerable auto manufacturer was determined to offer something no one else had, so they had their engineers go the artistic route and develop the avant-garde vehicle. It uses a carbon-fiber body on top of an aluminum skateboard platform. Officially, it is a compact crossover, but it really doesn’t look like any SUV or sedan you’ll see on the road.

Why It’s Similar to the I-Pace

The EQC400 offers a stealthy ride by insulating its two engines with two layers of rubber isolation. Foam also surrounds the aft engine. It steers well, feels athletic in its handling, and accelerates quickly. Okay, not Tesla quick, but you can go from standstill to 60 mph in five seconds and that’s not shabby.

You’ll also benefit from a bevy of available safety features when you add the Mercedes Driver Assistance Package. This includes an active steering assistant, lane-keeping assistant, active braking assistant, and many others.

Vehicle Design Observations

You don’t get a huge range with this Benz. You can travel 2000 miles on a full battery charge. Enjoy the all-wheel drive in this four-door hatchback that seats five passengers. The infotainment center features a similarly sized touchscreen to the I-Pace, but it comes with a voice-activated quirk.

The system should respond only when you say, “Hey, Mercedes,” however, the voice assistant is set to be too sensitive and any time any person says the word Mercedes, the vehicle responds with, “How can I assist you?” It’s a bit much.

Speed/Time for 0 to 60 miles per hour: 5 seconds

Horsepower: 402 hp

Torque: 561 lb. ft.

Base Model Cost: $70,000

Seating Capacity: Five

Fuel Efficiency: 200 miles on a full battery charge

Towing capacity: 4,000 pounds

Runners Up to the Top Three

Our top three vehicle alternatives to the Jaguar I-Pace aren’t the only game in town. You might also consider these alternatives.

4. Polestar 2

At an entry point of $61,200, the Volvo spin-off ranks pretty highly, with a slightly better range of 270 miles on a full battery charge. The hatchback seats five cozily. The manufacturer blends a sleek exterior with all-wheel drive to help you off-road when needed. It provides responsive handling and a quiet ride.

5. Volvo C40 Recharge

The Volvo C40 Recharge offers a boxy design similar to the body style of the non-electric Honda CRV. Say it with me – it seats five. At a starting price of $59,845 and with a range of 226 miles on a fully charged battery, you can road trip for less in this Volvo. It avoids opulence but offers some premium features like a heated leather steering wheel, remote engine start, and a motion-activated liftgate.

It pours on the infotainment and safety assistants including brake assistant, blind-spot warning, lane keep assistant, forward collision warning, backup camera, surround-view camera, and more all standard.

6. Porsche Taycan

Starting at a base price of $84,050, the Porsche Taycan looks every bit the sports car you’d expect from Porsche. You could easily picture Sonny Crockett driving it in sultry Miami, but he wouldn’t get far since this Porsche focuses on performance, not range. On a full battery charge, you can travel 190 to 227 miles, depending on the trim – Standard or 4 – and whether you choose the standard battery or the large-capacity battery.

Depending on how you configure the seats, you can seat either four or five. You can choose a vegan version of the Taycan, too, with a leather-free interior that uses recycled materials for the seats and cabin. The automaker uses a multiscreen cockpit with a 10.9-inch main touch screen display. Most of the safety features possible on a Taycan come standard.

This seems a bit endless, beginning with adaptive headlights, and including windshield wipers that sense rain, front and rear parking sensors, forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, traffic sign recognition, automatic high-beam headlights, and automatic emergency braking.
