2019 Jaguar I-Pace Vs. Tesla Model X 75D: Compare Electric Cars (and vote!)



It's said comparison is the thief of joy. We're here to steal the joy from Tesla Model X fans.

The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace is a better electric car, though the Tesla still has a superior charging infrastructure at its back.

We give the extraordinary new I-Pace a 9.4 out of 10, compared to the Model X's score of 7.7, which will be recalculated and may be uprated when 2019 models are available for purchase.

The Model X vs the I-Pace: A luxury electric SUV face-off



So who's the winner here? Right now, I feel like Jaguar has taken what it's learned from its own history, from sister company Land Rover and from other automakers (including Tesla) and created the best luxury SUV on the road today. It just feels like a more polished vehicle and the $10,000 price difference is a nice bonus.

When you start to look at the little things on the i-Pace, it becomes painfully obvious that Jaguar Land Rover did their homework on their competition, both EV and ICE vehicles.

Then they tested it. A lot. Then they let the press drive it. Everywhere. A lot.

Many of the quirks that Tesla owners complain about are answered on the i-Pace. Many of the features Tesla owners love on their cars are carried over in the i-Pace as well.

I'm sort of miffed at GM for not releasing anything really new for 2 years, unless you consider the Chinese Market CT6 PHEV a significant effort. All they had to do was figure out how to put a second motor on the Bolt to offer an AWD Sport version, and they would have had my money. Or the Volt.

But my i-Pace isn't here yet. I will admit to being VERY gun-shy when it comes to non-GM EVs. GM tends to deliver the goods when they say, and they tend to exceed the specs. I hope Jaguar is the same.

Wonder if this will end up being a better comparison to a Model Y.
I'm more interested in why there was a page when ordering where you pick your powertrain. There is only 1 choice, EV400, but you must select it to go on.

So us suckers who ordered an early 2019, might have gotten robbed if more options appear later. That's why I rarely buy a Year One anything.

My guess is the options will open up when they find out what Porsche really releases and at what price. That will be their real competition for European buyers. There was a Mission E in California recently. It was a very rough prototype but driveable with a police escort.

Extra features are sometimes introduced mid year (not ready for prime time?). You pays your money and you takes your chances.

I-Pace compares to Model X 75D just fine. The only two advantages Model X has is that it is a larger vehicle and it has supercharger backing. Everything else - I-Pace wins. If one does not want large vehicle, and one does not do long range trips - I-Pace is a better and cheaper alternative.

Competition is good; Once Tesla updates MX and MS motors and battery to what M3 has (more efficient, higher density, etc), and once interior is upgraded, then there will be new comparison.
