The 2023 Jaguar I-Pace gains Amazon Alexa integration and standard wireless phone charging but is otherwise unchanged. Last year, the high-lux HSE trim became standard. The I-Pace arrived in 2019 as Jaguar's first electric vehicle.
2023 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.
2023 Jaguar I-PACE Overview
Choosing Your Jaguar I-PACE
The I-Pace is powered by a pair of identic electric motors, mounted separately at the front and rear. This configuration provides full-time all-wheel drive functionality. The motors produce a combined 394 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.
Charging is relatively quick thanks to the I-Pace's standard supplemental onboard charger. Recharging a fully depleted battery takes 10.2 hours on a Level 2 home charger. At a Level 3 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 other luxury crossovers, the I-Pace emphasizes style and performance 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 with a full complement of driver assistance features, including adaptive cruise control with steering assist, driver alertness monitoring, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, parking sensors, and traffic sign recognition. A head-up display can be added to the mix for $1,000.
Whether due to current supply issues or lack of buyer interest, Jaguar no longer offers surround-view cameras, automated parking, or a rearview camera mirror on the I-Pace.
The standard — and only — infotainment system for the I-Pace covers all the bases. All models get a 10-inch upper and 5-inch lower touchscreen, navigation, five USB ports, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless device charging, and a 16-speaker Meridian sound system with HD and satellite radio.
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, signature LED headlights, and 20-inch wheels. The exterior can be dressed up with gloss black ($550) or chrome ($350) trim.
The Premium Upgrade Interior Pack ($1,900) includes extended leather trim, premium cabin lighting, plush floor mats, and illuminated door sill plates. 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 remaining options are four-zone climate control ($800), a hands-free liftgate ($100), and fog lights ($100).
The 2023 Jaguar I-Pace comes loaded right out of the box. While it needs nothing extra to qualify as a high-end EV, the reasonably priced Premium Upgrade Interior Pack adds a genuine wow factor to the passenger environment.
