All-electric SUVs, like the Jaguar I-PACE and Tesla Model X, are built to deliver an efficient performance. They're also designed with lots of luxury and the latest technology. Which luxury SUV is right for you? To help drivers near Parsippany, Morristown, and Newark decide, Jaguar Parsippany explores what each SUV has to offer in this 2020 Jaguar I-PACE vs. Tesla Model X comparison.

I-PACE vs Tesla Model X: Performance


The Jaguar I-PACE and Tesla Model X both run on an electric powertrain that's built to accelerate quickly and travel far. Each one has a powerful battery that provides you with an impressive driving range. They also offer a fun drive by going from 0 to 60 MPH in under 5 seconds and reaching speeds over 120 MPH.

Keeping your battery charged is also easy. Both SUVs feature a convenient onboard charger. You can also charge them overnight at home or quickly recharge them while you're on the road at a public charging station.

Jaguar I-PACE vs Tesla Model X: Capability

Both the Jaguar I-PACE and Tesla Model X deliver a dependable performance with standard all-wheel drive. Each SUV also sits on a versatile electronic air suspension. However, the Jaguar is a little more prepared for rough weather and rugged terrain.

It starts with a 9.1-inch ground clearance. It also offers Adaptive Surface Response. This system can detect when you go off-road or travel on a different type of terrain, then adjust the drivetrain for you. Plus, Low Traction Launch can help you drive through mud and across ice by acting like a low-speed cruise control.

The Tesla Model X sits lower to the ground with a 7-inch ground clearance. While it's also prepared to provide you with traction, its lower stance makes it more difficult to clear obstacles that you may encounter on your path.

Jaguar I-PACE vs Tesla Model X: Exterior

The Jaguar I-PACE offers the same bold design and first impression as its gas-powered counterparts. It features a large black mesh grille with a red Jaguar logo in the center. This is bordered by a wide air intake and a sleek set of headlights, completing its look as a sporty SUV.

From there, accent lines run down the vehicle. To make it more aerodynamic, each one of its edges is rounded off. It also has a flat roof that helps reduce drag. In the back, there's a slight drop off with a roofline spoiler that caps off the aerodynamic look.

The Tesla Model X lacks a traditional grille but does feature a wide air intake and diagonal headlights. Accent lines run up the hood in a way that is more rounded off than on the Jaguar. It also has a small spoiler just over the taillights.

Perhaps the biggest difference between the two SUVs is how you get in. The Jaguar has a set of traditional doors that swing out. The Tesla's front doors open normally, but the back features falcon wing doors that rise, which could cause some problems if you're packing in a garage with a low ceiling.

Lastly, the Jaguar I-PACE gives you lots of options. It's available in a dozen different colors. On the other hand, the Tesla Model X only offers five colors to choose from.

Jaguar I-PACE vs Tesla Model X: Interior

Much like the exterior, the interior of the Jaguar I-PACE offers both lots of options and luxury. First, you'll have a choice between traditional seats and performance seats that look like they're straight out of a race car.

You'll have your choice of upholstery, too, with options like textile, Luxtec, grained leather, and Windsor leather. There are several shades available, including ebony, Siena tan, light oyster, and a sporty red. To give the cabin a traditional feel, black and wood interior accents are available. If you're more interested in a modern look, you can choose aluminum or carbon fiber accents instead.

Both SUVs have similar amenities, such as heated seats, power-adjustable seats, and a stylish leather-wrapped steering wheel. However, the Tesla Model X doesn't offer as many options as the Jaguar. Only three shades of leather are available, and you won't have as many interior accents to choose from.

Jaguar I-PACE vs Tesla Model X: Infotainment System

The Touch Pro Duo infotainment system comes standard in the Jaguar I-PACE. It features a 10-inch touchscreen in the center of your dashboard, with a 5-inch touchscreen just below it. The bottom screen gives your climate controls a sleek, futuristic layout. Up top, the larger screen gives you lots of smartphone compatibility.

You can connect your phone with Bluetooth® and safely make hands-free calls. This connectivity means you can stream your favorite music, audiobooks, and podcasts. Both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ come standard to give you access to your phone's apps. Plus, the Navigation Pro system can find the fastest route to your destination and provide you with both turn-by-turn directions and detailed maps.

The Tesla Model X also has a navigation system and includes all the same smartphone compatibility. The biggest difference between the two system is how user-friendly they are.

The Jaguar separates the two screens, so you'll have a clear distinction between the dashboard and the center console. This keeps the front of the cabin looking stylish and makes it easy to find all the features you're looking for.

The Tesla has just one larger screen. At 17 inches across, its infotainment system can make it easier to get lost while you're looking for a specific feature or function.
