Remember the Jaguar Eyepiece? Of course you do. When it debuted in 2018, it was one of the first luxury EVs to market behind Tesla. It was also the first fully electric Jag and helped the brand beat the rush of electric SUVs to come in the coming years.

Now it’s 2022 and the market is flooded with electric SUVs, both luxury and mainstream. The Jaguar I-Pace, sometimes forgotten among the new and shiny, gets an update this year that improves things like charging and infotainment. And it’s still a solid EV option.

A vehicle’s decision is only relevant to its own segment and not to the entire new vehicle market. To learn more about how Motor1.com rates cars, click here.

Design

8/10

  • Exterior Color: Aruba
  • Interior Color: Oyster White
  • Wheel Size: 20 inches

Like some other new EVs, the Jaguar I-Pace straddles the line between sporty crossover and high-riding hatchback – though it leans more towards the former. Either way, it looks good; The 2022 update brings no visual changes other than the new Aruba paint job pictured here (an additional $1,550) and 20-inch wheels that up the sporty factor with an interesting 10-spoke, Y-shaped design.

The interior is also untouched with the same leather and aluminum trim as last year, with an open and airy cabin design. The car wears Light Oyster Windsor leather in this case with black accents, one of three no-cost color choices. In any color, the interior of the I-Pace is a great place to be.

rest

8/10

  • Seating Capacity: 5
  • Seating arrangement: 2/3
  • Cargo capacity: 25.3 / 51.0 + 0.95 cubic feet

The I-Pace’s standard air suspension makes it comfortable on all types of roads. It’s a smooth cruiser on the highway and conforms around town. The car’s standard 20-inch wheels don’t disturb the ride over speed bumps or potholes, but we can imagine the optional 22-inch and lower-profile tires would have a severe negative impact on ride quality.

The 16-way power-adjustable leather seats are both heated and cooled, but more importantly, they cost no extra for 2022. They provide ample butt and back support over long stretches with excellent bolstering for more aggressive driving.

From the driver’s seat, the Jag is all kinds of roomy, and although the I-Pace’s cargo space is middling, it’s one of the few vehicles in the class to be cramped. In terms of comfort, the only complaint we can register against the I-Pace is that the entry and exit points are cramped. The doors only open a fraction of what they probably should, leaving less room for me to get inside.

Internal dimensions Headroom, Front / Rear Legroom, Front / Rear Cargo volume
Jaguar Eyepiece 39.9 / 38.1 inches 40.9 / 35.0 inches 0.95 / 25.3 / 51.0 cubic feet
Audi e-tron 38.1 / 39.0 inches 40.8 / 39.1 inches 28.5 / 56.4 cubic feet
BMW X 42.0 / 39.5 inches 40.2 / 38.9 inches 35.5 / 77.9 cubic feet

Tesla Model X 41.7 / 40.9 inches 41.1 / 38.7 inches 21.5 / 92.3 cubic feet

Technology and connectivity

7/10

  • Center Display: 10.0 inch touchscreen
  • Instrument cluster display: 12.3 inches
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay / Android Auto: Yes

One of the few major upgrades to the I-Pace for 2022 is the new Pivi Pro infotainment system. It appears on the same 10.0-inch display, but the new interface has a cleaner home layout with crisp, beautiful graphics. Touch Responsiveness The smartphone isn’t instant, but all the available options are easy to navigate.

Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have also joined the mix for 2022, with the ability to connect two phones at the same time via Bluetooth. The Meridian 3D sound system is now standard, and still as clear, and the I-Pace now has improved over-the-air update capabilities – useful for things like range improvements.

Performance and handling

8/10

  • Motor: Dual permanent magnet synchronous
  • Output: 394 horsepower / 512 pound-feet
  • Transmission: Single Speed ​​Automatic

On paper, the Jug’s 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque figures aren’t flashy. This puts the I-Pace somewhere in the middle of the power spectrum comparatively. While The Cadillac Lyriq only has 340 horsepower and the Audi E-Tron only 355, the BMW iX offers 516 hp and the Rivian R1S starts at 600 hp.

And yet, the I-Pace still feels very fast. It sprints to 60 mph in a brisk 4.5 seconds, with gobs of instant torque that give it a ferocious jolt off the line. Power is exceptionally linear, of course, as is the case with most EVs. But even at highway speeds you get acceleration that feels like it could from standing still. There is no noticeable drop-off.

Because of its lower ride height compared to something like the iX, the Jag feels more nimble in corners than most of its rivals. The steering isn’t as communicative, but it’s quick. Body movements are flat and fluid, while a low center of gravity courtesy of a floor-mounted battery helps keep things composed.

Safety

9/10

  • Driver Assistance Level: SAE Level 2 (Hands-On)
  • NHTSA Rating: Not rated.
  • IIHS Rating: Not rated.

In addition to hands-free driving, the Jaguar I-Pace has every active safety feature you want and need. Adaptive cruise control with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning with lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, and blind spot monitoring are all standard.

Hands-free or not, the Jag’s active safety features work just as well as the rest of the best features in the space. Mark adaptive cruise with lane centering and the I-Pace glides along the highway, staying well in the lane and braking and applying throttle input as needed.

The economy of oil

2/10

City: 80 mpg
Highway: 72 MPGe
Combined: 76 MPGe

Here’s the good news: Jaguar has improved the charging rate on the I-Pace for 2022. The I-Pace will now regain 63 miles of range in just 15 minutes on a DC fast charger at 100 kW (its maximum rate). The bad news is that the overcharging speed is still the slowest of any EV, and the range hasn’t improved. The I-Pace still only has a range of 234 miles for 2022. It’s not the worst in the segment, but well below average.

performance Range Maximum charging rate
Jaguar Eyepiece 234 miles 100 kW
Audi e-tron 222 miles 150 kW
BMW X 324 miles 195 kW
Cadillac Lyric 312 miles 190 kW
Tesla Model X 330 miles 250 kW

Pricing

8/10

The updated I-Pace starts at $72,575 including a $1,275 destination fee. It’s not the most expensive EV in the class — that honor goes to the $120,000 Tesla Model X — but Both Audi and Cadillac undercut the Jag, and the powerful Raven is only $1,000 more expensive to start.

The good news is that thanks to Jaguar streamlining its packaging for 2022 with just one trim, the I-Pace comes packed out of the box. Fancy seats, premium audio system, and upgraded infotainment system are all standard. The only expensive option is the $1,550 Aruba paint job, and with some dealer-installed accessories, this car costs $75,435.

Base Price: Competition Details:
Jaguar Eyepiece $72,575 $75,435
BMW X $85,095 $101,570
Audi e-tron $68,490 $85,090
Cadillac Lyric $62,990 $64,990
Raven R1S $73,575 $98,000
Tesla Model X $120,990 $136,990

There are a few extras you can add, like 22-inch wheels, gloss black or chrome exterior accents, enhanced leather, and more, but these won’t improve the I-Pace experience much. The Jaguar I-Pace is still a stylish, sporty, and uber-luxury EV, even if it’s not the hottest new thing.
