JAGUAR I-PACE A DYNAMIC AND SATISFYING DRIVE

Jaguar’s all-electric I-PACE EV400 S was recently reviewed by Ken Gratton at Carsales, who found many good reasons to buy this car. They included its strong environmental credentials, its competitive pricing with a long list of standard features, and the fact it makes few compromises as a stylish, comfortable and refined mode of transport. But mostly, Gratton said, “the I-PACE is a car to buy for its driving. It’s dynamically capable and satisfying to drive.”

EFFORTLESS POWER AND PERFORMANCE

Putting his foot down, Gratton felt “the lower-pitched guitar-like thrumming from the two electric motors could convert a few of the ‘sports exhaust’ traditionalists”. And with effortless power delivery, “the I-PACE can accelerate as leisurely as you like, or leave you awe-struck with the aggressive kick in the back when it’s in Dynamic mode and you mash the accelerator”. In the bends, the I-PACE handled securely, with a flat stance, and the steering was very communicative and responsive. Ride comfort for Gratton was firm over longer, larger bumps, and the ride never felt punishing.

SUPREME COMFORT FRONT AND REAR

Inside, he found the driving position well-judged, as well as the relationship to the wheel and pedals and, importantly, the seats were extremely comfortable and snug. The head-up display was very effective and easy to read and “in fact, is one of the Jaguar’s real virtues – you don’t need a PhD to operate it”. The touch-screen design was one of the better examples of user-friendliness he’d seen, and wouldn’t overwhelm the first-time user. Meanwhile, in the rear seat the accommodation was roomy, even for taller adults, with more legroom for the centre-seat occupant. Seat heating switches for warmth during the winter months are a further enhancement that rear passengers enjoy.

At the end of the glowing review, Gratton asks, “And with all that, would we buy one? In an I-PACEmaking heartbeat…”
