Jaguar I-PACE: Years and History

The Jaguar I-PACE is the first all-electric SUV by a European luxury brand and it is a true luxury car. It won over 60 awards in categories such as safety, powertrain, and design and goes 0-60 in 4.3 seconds. Used I-PACES can be reliably expected to get over 200 miles per charge in decent driving conditions. Due to the limited number of Jaguar drivers in our research fleet, some of our findings are preliminary.

The 2021 I-PACE model year was not offered new in the USA but the rest of the world got a sneak peek of the faster, on-board Level 2 charger and improved infotainment center.

Trims

The first Jaguar I-PACE was released in 2019 with three versions: S, SE, HSE. The S trim is the base level and includes active safety and parking assist, LED lights, and a glass roof.

The upgrades from the basic S level included larger wheels, leather interior, and more driver assist features. The highest trim level, the HSE, include an improved stero and climate controlled seats. There is also steering assists and a 360-degree camera.

As of 2022, Jaguar is only offering the HSE trim, but it did drop the price down to near what was originally charged for the base trim.

EV Type

The Jaguar I-PACE is battery electric, which means that it is entirely powered by electricity via a high voltage, lithium ion battery. Even a used I-PACE has a competitive  electric range. Depending on the age and condition, most average almost 200 miles when charged to 100 percent.

What is range and why would it change?


Range is defined as how many miles an electric car can go when fully charged. Like with a traditional car, the range is not always the same: things like outside temperature, driving conditions, and driving style can affect the efficiency and energy needs of the car. So, while the EPA gives electric vehicles a standard "rated range," this number is really an estimate under a set of highly controlled conditions. Short term range changes tend to reflect external factors, while permanent range effects point to battery degradation and age.

The range that a car can see on any given drive is a complex mix of short and long term effects. EV batteries are most efficient when the temperature is warm, terrain is flat or downhill, and the car can use its regenerative braking feature to recharge the battery. All lithium ion batteries are sensitive to these factors, but the amount of variability that you'll see on-board depends on battery chemistry and the manufacturer's battery management system. The Jaguar I-PACE is not particularly sensitive to external factors, but we have observed reduced range below 40 degrees and above 80 degrees Fahrenheit. More data is needed to understand the exact dependency of temperature on range.

Read more about how temperature affects range.

What is the used range for the I-PACE?

There has been relatively little research into the lifespan and degradation of the I-PACE battery and since it is such a new car, we still don't know what the model’s range will look like five, eight, or ten years after production. However, we have observed ranges for used I-PACEs between 195 and 269 miles when 100% charged and the very occasional vehicle with a full range below 195 miles.

Recurrent is doing the hard work for used buyers everywhere by studying a nationwide fleet of I-PACE’s and building predictive models of battery and range degradation. This data is live from Recurrent’s battery tracking research, and as such, represents real vehicles. We know that in new EVs, there is an initial drop off in range, followed by a slow, steady decline. This is expected in all lithium ion batteries and means that the battery chemistry is settling into its long-term state.

What is the efficiency of the I-PACE in MPGe and miles per kWh?

The main ways to measure vehicle efficiency, or energy use per distance traveled, are MPGe and miles/kWh. You may see these values on new car stickers or on dealer listings. The I-PACE is a luxury sports car, so it uses a lot of energy to operate. Efficiency is one of the trade offs you make when you opt for performance. What this all means is that the I-PACE has a lower efficiency than most EVs: it gets 76 MPGe, which is generally the lowest number for mass market electric cars. It goes 2.3 miles per kWh.

What is the charging score for the Jaguar I-PACE?

Our community of I-PACE drivers give the car a Charging Score of 4.21/5, meaning that most drivers are pretty satisfied with their charging experience. However, the time to charge is one of the I-PACE community's biggest complaints about the car - at a DC fast charger, you get 80% of the 90 kWh battery in about 40 minutes. Part of the issue is that the 90 kWh battery is at least 10% larger than many similar car batteries.

I-PACE drivers still have the standard AC charging options: a 120V plug that will give you 5-7 miles of range an hour, making it only a last-ditch choice, and a 240V plug that will recharge your car in 8-9 hours from empty. Jaguar suggests that drivers buy or have long-term access to a Level 2 charger to truly enjoy the vehicle.

What sort of battery does a Jaguar I-PACE have?

Jaguar uses lithium ion batteries - a power dense, high voltage technology that works well for storing a lot of energy.  Although the lithium ion batteries in an EV are much stronger and more long lasting than those in your phone or laptop, they will still start to lose power and capacity with age and use. Battery degradation, like the passage of time, is unstoppable. The rate of degradation is based on two things:

a) the age of the battery (also known as 'calendar' aging)

b) how the battery is used, charged, and stored

Calendar aging is inevitable - it starts the moment a battery is made. However, there are things that can cause a battery to degrade faster. The way an EV is charged and stored will impact the rate of battery degradation, so there are ways for an EV owners to slow the process. This discussion is covered in a research article on battery degradation.

What is the battery size of an I-PACE?

The battery size, or battery capacity, is measured in kWh. The I-PACE has a very large battery - 90 kWh - which explains why it takes a while to charge. While a battery this big usually means a lot of range, the I-PACE is notoriously inefficient, and its range is average.

What is the battery warranty for a new or used I-PACE?

The lithium ion batteries used in the I-PACE should last for at least the life of the car. Since it is such a new car, it is hard to use empirical evidence to demonstrate this, but we can look to the warranty for an idea of how Jaguar thinks the battery should age.

Jaguar offers an 8 year, 100,000 mile warranty - whichever comes first - that the I-PACE battery will retain 70% of its capacity over those terms. In addition, Jaguar offers free maintenance and roadside assistance for the I-PACE, and all cars, for 5 years or 60,000 miles.

What do I-PACE drivers want improved?

Room to improve:

  • Range (especially given battery size)
  • Infotainment tech
  • Charging time
"Range is inadequate for a trip over 160 miles, far less with A/C on and at real highway speeds, charging takes a full two hours even on a "high speed" DC charger."
"I love to drive it locally but it's not a road trip vehicle due to charging time."
"The infotainment system - sluggish and buggy."

What is the Green Score for the Jaguar I-PACE?

The Green Score for the I-PACE is GREAT. It is an all-electric car with no tailpipe emissions. If driving electric isn't enough for you, you can lower your environmental impact by buying used and avoiding the production and shipment of a brand new car. Finally, you can really up your green game by powering your EV with renewable energy for the ultimate clean machine.

How much does it cost to buy an I-PACE?

The Jaguar I-PACE is a luxury sports car first, and an EV second, and the new price of $69,900 reflects these priorities. However, starting in 2022, the purchase price remained constant while the amenities and features have multiplied. Jaguar now offers only the highest trim level, but at around $10,000 less than the base trim version in 2020. The I-PACE is still eligible for the federal tax credit of $7,500, but the exact amount of credit depends on your specific tax returns.

The used price of an I-PACE varies by year and trim. Even the first generation I-PACE is less than three years old, so used prices have not dropped that much from original purchase prices. Data from our partner, Marketcheck, shows that the price of a used I-PACE varies from $43,500 - $81,000.

What does it cost to drive a mile in an I-PACE?

Recurrent uses cost per range mile as a way to measure the marginal increase in range that larger battery capacity or different trims may offer. The cost per range mile in a used I-PACE can range between $185-$320, depending on car price. While you can get a good price on a luxury car by shopping for a used I-PACE, it is still a pricey choice per mile. 

How much does it cost to charge an I-PACE for the year?

Recurrent uses data from the AFDC to determine the range of annual charging costs for the I-PACE. Assuming and average driving pattern of 34 miles a day, 5 days a week, 49 weeks a year with 25% highway driving, plus a few additional highway road trips, you can estimate your annual charging costs to be between $498 - $1595. More detailed and personalized values can be calculated at the link above. For our calculations, the highest electricity price is found in Hawaii and the lowest in Louisiana.
