What should I be paying?

There are four to choose from – S, SE, HSE or Sport (the latter introduced as part of 2023’s update) – each starting from £69,995, £73,495, £77,495 and £79,995 respectively. Don’t be fooled by the word Sport: there’s just the one powertrain set-up to choose from, and it’s identical across all four trim levels.

On lease, you’re looking at around £725 for the S, £745 for the SE, £795 for the HSE, and £825 for the Sport, on a four-year agreement with a £10k down payment and 10,000 yearly mileage allowance, through Jaguar’s own finance scheme.

Sounds expensive, but you’ll buy an I-Pace with your heart rather than your head. It’ll come down to the way it looks and how you feel when you get inside the luxuriously cocooning cabin. It makes you feel good at rest, and even better on the move. And that makes the price easier to swallow.

What’s the difference in kit choice?

As standard the S gets 19in alloy wheels, LED headlights, electric boot lid, keyless entry, 12-way heated electric front seats, and JLR’s latest Pivi Pro infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Alexa voice control.

Not much wrong there, but if you care about image you’ll go one up to SE, which gets bigger 20-inch wheels, a panoramic roof and privacy glass, plus a heated leather steering wheel, configurable cabin lighting, and wireless charging.

HSE models get fancy animated indicators, 16-way heated and cooled Windsor leather sports seats, a head-up display, lower touchscreen and Meridian audio system. All the tech you could ever want and more, in other words.

Top of the range Sport models add style and substance courtesy of 22-inch alloy wheels, a subtle rear spoiler, and adaptive air suspension, while inside you’ll find 14-way adjustable heated and cooled slimline performance seats.

What’s the best spec?

We reckon the pick of the bunch here is the I-Pace SE, which for around £20 extra a month over the base model brings with it a touch more style and some nice creature comforts. 

Ride comfort suffers slightly on account of those bigger alloys however, so we’d be tempted to option the self-levelling air suspension (£1,120) with adaptive damping (£815) if your budget stretches that far. Which, if you've got this far, it probably does.
