The all-new 2019 Jaguar I-Pace will go on sale later this year, but the car manufacturer has set a base price already. According to the carmaker, the crossover will cost $70,495, though it’s eligible for a $7,500 federal income-tax credit. Plus, the price can be additionally lowered for around $2,500 in California and $2,000 New York.
As you can see, the I-Pace is going to be a cheaper electric SUV than the Tesla Model X which starts close to $80K. Still, there is a reason for that. In case you’ve forgotten, Jaguar’s first-ever electric crossover has no an available third row of seating, while Elon Musk’s flagship SU offers this convenience.
The Jaguar I-Pace relies on a 90-kWh battery and a pair of electric motors which together produce 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque. The motors are placed at both axles, one for each axle. Such system delivers a respectable drive range, which is estimated to be around 240 miles. The SUV is going to be able to speed-up from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, while the top speed stays limited to 124 mph.
Jaguar offers several trim levels: the S, the SE, the HSE, and the First Edition and all of them are going to use the same powertrain. Though, level of equipment and prices are going to be different. The First Edition will, for instance, cost $86,895. Still, all models are going to get a standard 7-kW onboard charger, which is great because the feature provides a faster charging then the usual household outlets.
The 2019 I-Pace has been introduced at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The U.S. debut will happen later this month at the 2018 New York Auto Show. The awesome crossover will hit dealerships in the second half of this year.
