Introduced in March 2018, the Jaguar I-Pace finally received its long-awaited facelift in January 2023. The updated EV will ship to the U.S. as a 2024 model, where its price and details are now available. Here’s everything you need to know about the U.S.-spec 2024 Jaguar I-Pace.
Design & Features
The 2024 Jaguar I-Pace features subtle design revisions, focused on the exterior. In the U.S., the new model is only available in the R-Dynamic HSE trim.
On the outside, the 2024 I-Pace has a new front grille that has a smooth form. Painted in Atlas Grey, it lends a simple and clean finish to the face of the EV. The same color is noted on the vertical blades at the outside of the front apertures. The black and silver brand logo in the grille is another new exterior feature on the 2024 I-Pace. The front bumper finishers, lower door finishers, and rear diffuser feature the body color, not Gloss Black like the previous model.
The Black Pack styling pack for the exterior is part of the standard equipment, which wasn’t the case in the previous model. This pack gives the grille and window surrounds, ORVM caps, and rear badges a Gloss Black finish. The 2024 I-Pace is available in a new Carpathian Grey metallic color, at an additional cost of USD 1,550. The same color can be had in a satin finish, too, but at a significantly higher premium – USD 7,450. The rear section of the panoramic roof, unlike in the old model, can be specified in a black finish, and that’s an option worth USD 450.
The 2024 Jaguar I-Pace has no changes in the specifications. The U.S.-spec model comes in the EV400 variant, which has a 90 kWh battery pack and a dual-motor powertrain generating 394 hp and 512 lb.-ft. Accelerating from 0 to 60 mph takes 4.5 seconds, and if you leave the pedal floored beyond, the electric crossover keeps speeding up until it reaches 124 mph. The officially expected max range is the same as the previous model’s EPA-est. range – 246 miles.
|Aspect||2024 Jaguar I-Pace Specification|
|0-60 mph Acceleration Time||4.5 seconds|
|Top Speed||124 mph|
|Battery Pack||90 kWh|
|Range (Officially Expected)||246 miles|
|0-100% AC Charging Time (at 9.6 kW)||10.17 hours|
The 2024 Jaguar I-Pace retails at USD 72,000 before options. A USD 1,275 destination and delivery charge is applicable additionally. Customer deliveries may begin by July 2023.
Though it was one the earlier bespoke EVs, the Jaguar I-Pace isn’t a popular EV. In 2022, just 7,307 units were delivered to retail customers worldwide, and that marked a year-over-year decline of 26.7% (2021: 9,970 units). In Q1 2023, with 1,459 units delivered, retail sales were 27.6% lower than in Q1 2022 (2,014 units).
Jaguar I-Pace future
Amidst the product cancellations at Jaguar Land Rover since the implementation of the Reimagine strategy in early 2021, at least the Jaguar I-Pace’s future is secure. A report from Autocar in June 2021 had said that the I-Pace will “survive Jaguar’s reinvention,” suggesting that a full model change is certain and that a second-gen I-Pace is on the horizon.
With the Reimagine strategy in place, Jaguar will undergo “a renaissance” by the middle of the decade to become an all-electric luxury brand, JLR said in an announcement on February 15, 2021. Future Jaguars will have more dramatic designs with innovative silhouettes. The company wants a clear distinction between the Jaguar and Land Rover brands. From here on, it may make only low-slung Jaguars – no high-riding SUVs. All future Jaguar models will sit on a bespoke EV platform, which is internally known as the ‘Panthera.’ The company has confirmed Solihull, West Midlands (UK) as the home of the future platform.
The 2024 Jaguar I-Pace has received a much-needed update, but the changes made in the facelift may not be substantial enough to enhance its appeal in the U.S. market. In our opinion, it may be a prudent decision to spend a little more and opt for the Mercedes EQE SUV.
