Jaguar I-Pace

(2018 - present)

The Jaguar I-Pace is an electric medium-size SUV/crossover vehicle. It is the first electric vehicle from Jaguar, and is not based on any other model in the Jaguar Land Rover family.

The I-Pace has received very good to outstanding reviews from the UK motoring media, as well as many awards – including the 2019 World Car of the Year.

The Jaguar I-Pace has been particularly praised for being a brand-new design, rather than adapted from a normal petrol or diesel vehicle, and is generally considered to be the best electric car currently on sale – albeit one of the most expensive.

In a 2020 What Car? survey of the 50 most reliable cars in the UK up to eight years old, the Jaguar I-Pace ranked equal 31st and was the highest-ranked electric vehicle.
