We give a run down on the important numbers

The Cat Badge just revealed its first entry into the all-electric SUV segment. Dubbed the I-Pace, the electron-driven utility vehicle looks to combine gorgeous British styling and cabin comfort with green efficiency and even a some strong performance spec to boot. But how does this large, battery-driven vehicle really perform?

2019 Jaguar I-Pace Battery Specs

It’s powered by a 90-kWh battery
Expect to get around 240 miles with a single charge, a figure that’s no doubt helped by the car’s sleek aerodynamics.

At the heart of the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace you’ll find a 90-kWh battery pack, which is installed low on the machine and acts not only as a power source, but as a structural component to strengthen the chassis as well. The pack is composed of 432 individual lithium-ion battery modules, and should get as much as ten years of life before it needs replacement.

The next vital piece of the puzzle are the two electric motors, with one motor to drive the front axle and a second to drive the rear. This enables advanced AWD grip and torque vectoring capabilities, although it remains to be seen how well the large SUV can handle on a proper race track.

Either way, expect to get around 240 miles on a single charge. That figure is no doubt helped by the car’s sleek aerodynamics, as Jag’s head of design Ian Callum said the exterior design “[follows] physics to a tee.” It also looks gorgeous, but that’s a topic for another day. It’s also worth mentioning that the I-Pace takes 12 hours to get back to a full battery from a standard household plug, and 40 minutes to hit 80 percent charge from a DC quick charger outlet.

2019 Jaguar I-Pace Performance Specs

It Arrives looking similar to the concept
Output is rated at 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque, which, yields a 0-to-60 mph of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 124 mph.

Now for the really important bit - the speed.

Output for the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace is rated at a maximum 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque, which, properly applied, yields a 0-to-60 mph of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 124 mph.

During its debut, Jag placed the I-Pace alongside the Tesla Model X to conduct a 0-to-60-to-0 mph test. Unsurprisingly, the I-Pace bested both the 75D and 100D configurations for the Tesla.

For the sake of comparison, it’s worth noting that the Tesla Model X 100D (100-kWh battery, dual-drive motors) posts an EPA rated range of 295 miles and can hit 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, plus it’s got a top speed of 155 mph. And those are all very important numbers considering the I-Pace has the California-based EV maker squarely in its sights .

2019 Jaguar I-Pace Pricing

While we initially speculated that the I-Pace could fetch upwards of six figures, we were delighted to learn that pricing in the U.S. would start at just $69,500. That places it far below the $96,000 tagged to the Tesla Model X 100D, which makes this bad cat one very serious competitor in the segment. Order books are open now, with deliveries expected for the second half of the year.
