While mildly electrified vehicles have been available for years, it is only recently that there has been much competition when it comes to a fully-electric, plug-in SUV. The Tesla Model X was one of the first to offer elegant driving, a luxury interior, and complete electric performance. However, we believe that the Jaguar I-PACE, which is all-new for the 2019 model year, can give it a run for the money. In this 2019 Jaguar I-PACE vs 2018 Tesla Model X comparison, we are going to explore just that.
First of all, the Tesla is a larger vehicle. While the 2019 Jaguar I-PACE can hold up to five passengers, the 2018 Tesla Model X can hold up to seven. This means that the Tesla has some of the advantages of a larger model (like more interior space) but also some of the disadvantages related to maneuverability. The 2019 Jaguar I-PACE still offers up to 51 cubic feet for cargo with the rear seats folded down, which is respectable for the class.
Electric Range and Performance on the 2019 Jaguar I-PACE
And elite Tesla model will offer more range and acceleration than the 2019 Jaguar I-PACE, but when you look at more basic end of the spectrum, the numbers are much more comparable. Whether you choose the base model or an upper trim, the 2019 Jaguar I-PACE offers 240 miles of range and a faster 0-60 mph acceleration time (4.5 seconds) than the starting 2018 Tesla Model X 75D model, which is rated for 237 miles and 4.9 seconds. Of these two models, the Jaguar even has a slightly lower starting MSRP than the Tesla.
Both of these all-electric SUVs offer fast charging that can get you back on the road quickly and can take advantage of recharging stations in many areas. The 2019 Jaguar I-PACE can reach an 80% charge using a 50 kW DC rapid charger in just under an hour and a half. Even just plugging the vehicle in for a while at the grocery store is enough to help get a few more miles. Both of these models also offer all-wheel drive.
