Jaguar has been making headlines lately with their fully electric crossover, the I-Pace. First, it was with the vehicle's announcement, the second was when they pit their car against various Tesla Model Xs. Now we can properly compare cars because the automaker has revealed the I-Pace pricing.
The Jaguar I-Pace starts at $70,495 with destination for the base S trim. Midlevel SEs will cost $76,845, top trim HSEs will cost $81,495, and the special First Editions will cost $86,895. To compare to the Model X 75D. They start at $80,700, about $10,000 more than the I-Pace.
Not enough? The price gap will grow larger later this year. That's because the $7,500 federal tax credit for electric vehicles only applies to the first 200,000 EVs that an automaker sells. Tesla is close to hitting that mark, expecting to lose the credit before the end of 2018.
On paper, the I-Pace is looking to outperform the Model X, while undercutting the price. Unfortunately, Tesla's supercharger network isn't compatible with Jaguar's vehicle. Meaning drivers are restricted to home charging or independent charge stations. While daily commuters might not have an issue here, this certainly makes long trips difficult. On a 50-kW charger, the I-Pace can hit an 80-percent charge in about 85 minutes, but that time drops to 40 minutes on a 100-kW charger.
Expect to see the Jaguar I-Pace enter the market in the second half of 2018.
