Since Jaguar presented the F-Type in 2013, the British automaker is growing in every possible way. In 2015 the F-Pace became company’s first SUV. One year after that, we saw the all-electric I-Pace crossover. Now, the 2020 Jaguar I-Pace is coming with further upgrades. It is basically the F-Pace model with the all-electric powertrain.
The goal is to tackle the Tesla Model X. The 2020 I-Pace will offer a room for five passengers and it will look extremely handsome. Sporty appearance and modern design are looking attractive and the interior feels premium. New I-Pace comes with improved aerodynamics and a new navigation system.
2020 Jaguar I-Pace Exterior Changes
The upcoming 2020 Jaguar I-Pace looks almost the same as the F-Pace model. However, the crossover looks unique because it’s based on the concept. Whatsoever, the only difference between the production model and the concept is dimensional. Yes, I-Pace is slightly smaller than the concept. It seems like the Jaguar C-X75 supercar had some influence in terms of design.
The I-Pace also features a lower hood and similar roof design. It looks sporty and entertaining. Front end sports the same headlights, bumpers, and grille as the concept. LED daytime running lights are standard and the hood comes with a small vent. To the sides, I-Pace won’t introduce any significant changes. However, in the back, this crossover offers more badging and slightly revised bumper.
The interior of the all-new 2020 Jaguar I-Pace is the same as on the concept. That means the center stack is wide and it can host a larger infotainment display. The dashboard looks modern and cohesive and A/C vents are large. Even the buttons and knobs are the same. Moreover, a three-spoke steering wheel looks very sporty, along with the all-digital instrument cluster.
The seats are very comfortable and supportive. Fine leather upholstery comes as standard. Tech-wise, the cabin hosts astonishing features. On top of that, most of the amenities are available as standard. That even includes safety systems and driver-assistance features.
All-Electric Drivetrain, Mileage, Acceleration
Similarities between the concept and the 2020 Jaguar I-Pace continue under the shell. The crossover offers the same electric drivetrain as the concept. That includes a 90 kWh lithium-ion battery and a pair of electric motors. Total output is rated at 394 horses and 513 lb-ft of torque.
Thanks to such strong figures, new I-Pace sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. I-Pace crossover comes with 298 miles of driving range. These numbers are solid, but the Tesla Model X is still offering 295 miles. You can charge the battery from 0 to 80 percent in 80 minutes.
2020 Jaguar I-Pace Competition
Jaguar’s goal is to take over the all-electric crossover segment with its new 2020 I-Pace model. The only real rival is the Tesla Model X. However, I-Pace still lacks some features and modern cues. Tesla’s crossover looks futuristic and innovative.
On the other hand, I-Pace is basically the F-Pace model with an electric drivetrain. No matter which model you opt for, both models are very reliable, modern and premium.
Price and Release Date
The electric crossover will cost between $70,000 and $80,000. It is a premium model with plenty of luxury. The 2020 Jaguar I-Pace will arrive in three trim levels, S, SE, and HSE. Also, the First Edition variant is available. Jaguar will introduce its new crossover in the last quarter of 2019.
