Under the hood of the Jaguar I-Pace are two electric motors that will be powered by a 90kWh battery that will offer about 240miles of electric range.
The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace electric vehicle will undercut the Tesla Model X when it goes on sale later this year with a starting price of $70,495. Jaguar's I-Pace is an all-wheel-drive SUV (according to the automaker), so the natural competitor is the Tesla Model X. But the Model X is considerably larger than the I-Pace - the X is 198.3 inches in length versus 184.3 inches for the Jag - so it's not an apples-to-apples match-up. As an electric crossover, it was only natural to compare the I-Pace to the Tesla Model X, but without USA pricing, it was hard to tell how accurate the comparisons were.
CDC reports rising opioid-related emergency room visits
Overall, opioid overdose emergency room visits increased 35 percent in the 16 states hit hard by the epidemic. Too often, addicts are simply revived and sent home without follow-up care, only to overdose again, she says.
The I-Pace is eligible for a $7,500 federal income-tax credit, as well as $2,500 and $2,000 purchase rebates in California and NY, respectively. Jaguar says it makes 394 horsepower and 512 pounds-feet of torque, and can hit 60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds - a bit slower than the base Tesla Model S' low-4-seconds sprint. The Model X, on the other hand, can be configured with up to seven seats. What's more, Tesla cars have access to a wide network of "Superchargers" in the United States, which enables EV owners to travel long distances. But at home charging options include a 100kW charger that reaches an 80 percent charge in 40 minutes. Yes, they're both electric crossovers, but the I-Pace is smaller, only offering seating for five.
Introduce a new electric vehicle and it's nearly impossible to avoid comparisons with Tesla. Note that the standard Model 3 is not yet available.
