Battle of the Electric Cars: Jaguar I-PACE vs. Tesla Model X
Right now, the Tesla Model X is one of the few all-electric crossovers on the road. However, Jaguar has revealed plans to offer a competitive model known as the Jaguar I-PACE. And from what we know so far, it is set to outpace the Model X in terms of performance, design, and overall quality. Jaguar Fort Myers has some details about the upcoming Jaguar model that are sure to get drivers revved up for the release.
The Jaguar I-PACE will run on one of the most advanced electric engines ever developed. As a result, the standard engine will produce a mammoth 400 hp and rocket from 0-60 mph in a lightning fast 4.0 seconds. The standard engine on the current Tesla Model X can only deliver 328 hp and takes closer to 6.0 seconds to reach 60 mph.
The Tesla Model X shows off a lot of high-tech features, but is less accomplished in terms of overall automotive design. As a result, it is not nearly as comfortable, convenient, or stylish as it could be. Even though the Jaguar I-PACE is a next-generation automobile, it’s being developed by one of the world’s foremost automakers. Expect it to show off the sophisticated style, flawless attention to detail, and overall commitment to excellence for which the brand is legendary.
It’s true that the Model X can hold seven passengers overall, but since it relies on three rows of seating, every seat in back feels cramped and uncomfortable, especially over long distances. The Jaguar I-PACE has been smartly limited to five seats so that there is plenty of leg and shoulder room for backseat passengers, as well as lots of cargo room even when you have every seat occupied.
Get Excited about the Upcoming Jaguar I-PACE
There is still a lot that we are still waiting to learn about the Jaguar I-PACE, but from what we know so far, this will be one of the finest electric cars on the road and an overall stunning luxury crossover. It should start arriving in showrooms around the second half of 2018, so make plans to check it out in person at Jaguar Fort Myers.
