Engadget Review

The I-Pace is an exceptional pure electric luxury SUV from Jaguar that can handle real offroading and a day at the track just as well as a night out on the town. It’s chock full of tech that for the most part delivers. We just wish the infotainment system suffered from less latency.

CNET
Jaguar's I-Pace stands alone for now, defining its own segment for those desiring an engaging, attractive, luxurious and fast crossover SUV with character. I-Pace is a much-needed alternative choice on the EV landscape, and a damned good one.

Motor Trend
The future does not have to look ugly. The I-Pace's superbly executed exterior design may well define Jaguar's identity in the 21st century as emphatically as the E-Type did in the 20th.

Gear Patrol
It’s a cool-looking, sporty, all-electric SUV that may not have all the tricks the Model X comes packed with, but it also doesn’t come with any of the drama.

ExtremeTech
Head-to-head against Tesla, the Jaguar I-Pace is the choice today for most premium, sporty EV buyers, especially if they want to go off-roading. It has a fresh, new design. The cabin is superbly finished. Like Tesla, Jaguar is committed to over-the-air updates.

Car and Driver
On initial impression, the Jaguar I-Pace sets the new standard for luxury electric vehicles with its competitive pricing, impressive refinement, and sharp driving dynamics. It’s a welcome infusion of style and desirability into the EV market, which has often fallen short in those areas. Pulling together the elements that stir hearts and inspire driving with the technology that is advancing the automobile makes the I-Pace the most complete EV on the market.

Chicago Tribune
The I-Pace is a welcome addition to the nascent electric crossover market. It is a necessary and attractive alternative to the Model X, especially given the general unreliability of Tesla as a company.

CNET
So is the I-Pace a proper Tesla rival? Definitely. The real-world range could be a bit better to really match something like the Model X, but for folks who want a sharply styled EV that's entertaining to drive and has tons of functionality (and no gimmicks like, you know, falcon doors), the I-Pace is absolutely worth a look.

Automobile Magazine
With its smartly sculpted exterior, rewarding driving experience, and gutsy electric powertrain, the I-Pace offers the aesthetic and athletic boldness you expect of a Jaguar—just be sure to get a fast-changer installed in your garage.

Digital Trends
We didn’t know what we were missing from the EV market until Jaguar introduced its I-Pace. While offering the same range and technological sophistication as Tesla’s Model X 75D, the I-Pace brings forth style and athleticism beyond the scope of current players. And when the EV storm does hit, Jaguar will weather it from a shelter of customers and buzz.

Wired
For people who can afford it, this is not just a great electric car, but a great car, full stop. And I can’t wait to get back onto the freeway ramp, where I’ve got the room to stomp the pedal.
