With more standard equipment, the Jaguar I-Pace offers better value than ever.
Jaguar is preparing to transform into an electric-only brand by 2025, but right now the I-Pace is the only fully-electric model in its current model lineup. After the electric crossover received a subtle facelift for 2021, Jaguar has upgraded the I-Pace with an improved infotainment system, faster charging, and new standard equipment.
For 2022, the I-Pace features Jaguar's new Pivi Pro infotainment system with a more intuitive, simplified menu structure providing easier access to most common tasks from the home screen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is offered as standard and two phones can be connected with Bluetooth. Using Pivi Pro, the navigation system can help drivers locate the nearest charging point to reduce the journey time. On long journeys, the system can also predict the remaining charging level at each waypoint.
On the outside, Jaguar has enhanced the exterior with a new Atlas Grey grille tip finish. A Bright Pack option is also available, which adds a Noble Chrome surround, Atlas Grey door mirror caps, Satin Chrome window surrounds, and Atlas Grey trim for the rear diffuser. The available Black Pack adds a gloss black finish to the rear badges. Available exterior colors include Aruba, Caldera Red, Portofino Blue and Eiger Grey.
As standard, the Jaguar I-Pace now comes with a faster 11-kW charger. Using a 100-kW DC charger, 63 miles of range can be added in just 15 minutes. Thanks to its aluminum construction and a dual-motor setup producing 394 hp, the I-Pace will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds.
For 2022, the I-Pace is only available in the range-topping HSE trim, which includes 16-way heated and cooled powered leather front seats, LED headlights with daytime running lights, a powered tailgate, an 825-watt 3D surround sound system, and 20-inch five-spoke Gloss Dark Grey wheels with a Contrast Diamond Turned finish as standard.
Rounding off the generous standard equipment list is a slew of safety assists including adaptive cruise control with steering assist and stop & go, emergency braking, head-up display, blind spot assist, clear exit monitor, driver condition monitor, lane keep assist, and traffic sign recognition with adaptive speed limiter.
Pricing for the 2022 Jaguar I-Pace starts at $69,900 excluding the $1,150 destination charge. That makes the starting price slightly more expensive than last year, but it's significantly cheaper than last year's equivalent HSE trim, which started at $80,900.
