Tesla's model naming can be somewhat confusing, and this price comparison could lead one to believe the I-Pace beats the more powerful P100D. The Tesla Model X also has different battery pack sizes, which for a pricey upgrade gets owners up to 295 miles to a single charge.

The exterior design is inspired by the Jaguar F-TYPE sports vehicle and characterised by the distinctive Jaguar grille, muscular proportions, short overhangs and powerful haunches that give the new Jaguar E-PACE a bold and purposeful stance, instantly communicating dynamic agility.

To be fair, the Model X range includes other variants that smash the I-Pace in terms of range and performance but such triumphs stretch the price gap to more than $25,000. With its US pricing recently revealed, the I-Pace actually costs $69,500. Comparisons are done with regards to the relative value of both electric vehicles, with the goal of informing potential buyers. The I-Pace is rated at a 240-mile range when fully charged, Jaguar says. Take a look at the table below to see how it stacks up against the Model X and Model 3.

The I-Pace is eligible for a $7,500 federal income-tax credit, as well as $2,500 and $2,000 purchase rebates in California and NY, respectively. Model X can accommodate seven passengers, while Jaguar's EV seats only five passengers.

While comparing the two, Jaguar's charging infrastructure falls behind Tesla's robust network. Using a 100 kW fast charger, you can also recharge the battery up to 80 percent in only 40 minutes. A traditional 230-volt, 32-amp Level 2 home charger will prolong the waiting time for up to 10.1 hours. A first edition model in the HSE will also be available.
