The 2022 Jaguar I-Pace crossover now comes exclusively in top HSE trim. Newly standard equipment for the SUV includes 16-way heated and cooled front seats, a power liftgate, and a 16-speaker Meridian sound system. The center touchscreen adopts more intuitive menus. All models gain an onboard charger that reduces charging time. The I-Pace debuted in 2019 as Jaguar's first all-electric vehicle.
2022 Jaguar I-PACE
Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2022 Jaguar I-PACE Overview
Choosing Your Jaguar I-PACE
The I-Pace EV comes in a single trim level, the HSE, priced from $71,050. As before, the model remains eligible for a $7,500 federal EV tax credit as well as certain state plug-in rebates like the California Clean Fuel Reward.
The I-Pace is powered by a pair of identical electric motors, mounted separately at the front and rear. This configuration provides full-time all-wheel drive functionality. Combined output is 294 horsepower and 512 lb-ft of torque. Like most EVs, the I-Pace uses a single-speed automatic transmission.
According to EPA estimates, the I-Pace can travel up to 234 miles on a single charge and achieves 76 miles per gallon of gasoline-equivalent (MPGe) combined.
Thanks to the new onboard charger, recharging a fully depleted battery takes 10.2 hours on a home charger, down from 12.9 hours. At a 100-kw DC fast-charge station, Jaguar says it takes just 15 minutes to gain 63 miles of range.
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The I-Pace is a midsize crossover with room for five to travel comfortably. Like many luxury crossovers, the I-Pace emphasizes style over utility. Buyers get 25.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat, and 51 cubic feet with it folded, about the same as a hatchback.
Every I-Pace comes loaded with driver assistance technology, including adaptive cruise control with steering assist, a head-up display, driver alertness monitoring, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, parking sensors, and traffic sign recognition.
A rearview camera mirror is available for $450, and the $900 Park Assist Pack adds an automated parking system and a surround-view camera.
The I-Pace excels in the infotainment department as well. All models get a 10-inch upper and 5-inch lower touchscreen, navigation, six USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a 16-speaker Meridian sound system with HD and satellite radio. The only option is wireless device charging and a phone signal booster for $350.
The I-Pace offers a Windsor leather interior with 16-way heated and cooled front seats with memory, a panoramic sunroof, power-folding side mirrors, a power liftgate, and 20-inch wheels. The exterior can be dressed up with gloss black ($550) or chrome ($350) trim.
The Premium Upgrade Interior Pack ($2,650) includes extended leather trim, premium cabin lighting, plush floor mats, and a sueded headliner.
The Cold Climate Pack ($550) tacks on a heated steering wheel and a heated windshield with heated washers. Buyers can select aluminum ($200), wood ($400), or carbon fiber ($1,300) interior trim. An adaptive suspension system costs $700, or $850 with terrain sensing added.
Among the handful of individual options are four-zone climate control ($800), a hands-free liftgate ($100), and a cabin air ionizer ($200).
Now that the HSE goodies are standard, the I-Pace needs nothing extra to qualify as a high-luxury vehicle. The available options are reasonably priced and a matter of personal taste.
