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.
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.
