. . . The numbers are not officially official just yet, but Jaguar has provided EPA-estimated figures now.
According to the automaker, the 90-kWh battery in the Jaguar I-Pace offers up just 234 miles of electric range. That’s less than the base Tesla Model X. Lower than the Hyundai Kona Electric and even below the range rating of the Chevy Bolt. All three of those vehicles have smaller capacity battery packs.
Why the low result from such a big battery? It all boils down to efficiency and that’s where the I-Pace falters.
The MPGe numbers for the I-Pace are as follows:
80 MPGe City
72 MPGe Highway
76 MPGe Combined
Those figures are downright awful for a modern-day electric car. Compared to the Tesla Model X 75D with a 75-kWh battery pack, which gets 91 MPGe city, 95 MPGe highway and 93 MPGe combined, the I-Pace clearly suffers inefficiency issues. But hey, we laid this all out back in August, so truly we aren’t surprised. . . .

Jaguar I-PACE won the 2019 German Car of the Year Award against 58 competitors!
We are a little surprised as one would expect that the Audi e-tron would be the favorite in Germany, which only increases the value of the victory for Jaguar.
Additionally, I-PACE was shortlisted for Women’s World Car of the Year Award (the winner will be announced on 12 November. . . .)

I'd be curious to see if there is something wrong with the cars that were used. 65% of the rated distance is not good, in fact it is downright bad. My guess is that there is something wrong with the test vehicle or the the way it was performed. It is something to watch for.
