2019 Jaguar I-Tempo in contrast with Tesla Mannequin X and Mannequin S

When Jaguar launched its first specs on the 2019 I-Tempo, we determined to see the way it stacks up with plenty of different EVs together with the Tesla Mannequin three, Chevy Bolt EV, and Hyundai Kona EV. The reason is that all of them ship between 200 and 300 miles of vary, they usually had been all fairly shut in measurement. However it wasn’t a wonderfully correct comparability, as a result of the Jaguar occupies an odd house within the electrical market. Whereas it affords comparable vary and measurement to these extra entry-level EVs, it packs considerably extra energy, extra model cachet, and, as soon as the official pricing was launched, a a lot increased price ticket. As such, we wished to additionally examine it with the vehicles synonymous with luxurious electrical motoring (actually), the Tesla Mannequin X and Mannequin S. We’re solely evaluating it with the base-level 75D fashions of every Tesla, since they’re the closest in value and efficiency to the Jaguar. You’ll be able to see the uncooked stats under, and may discover extra evaluation and highlights farther down. If you would like to match these vehicles with others, remember to check out our comparability instruments.


All three of those electrical vehicles use the same powertrain consisting of two electrical motors, one up entrance and one within the rear to energy all 4 wheels. The Jaguar I-Tempo’s 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque is a good bit greater than the 328 horsepower and 387 pound-feet mixed energy from the Teslas, in line with Motor Development. However within the dash to 60 mph, the Jaguar does not actually achieve a bonus. It is zero.four seconds faster than the Mannequin X, however zero.three sec. behind the Mannequin S. That is regardless of the Jaguar weighing about the identical because the Mannequin S, and some hundred kilos lighter than the Mannequin X.

At 90 kWh, the Jaguar additionally has a bigger battery capability than the Tesla 75D fashions, however vary is once more mid-pack between Musk’s vehicles. At 240 miles, it is simply three miles forward of the Mannequin X, and 19 miles behind the Mannequin S. The I-Tempo and Mannequin X are also about as hungry for electrical energy as one another, each with an vitality consumption estimate of about 36 kWh/100 miles, whereas the Mannequin S is essentially the most frugal at 33. All three autos have the power to make use of DC quick chargers, with Jaguar claiming an 80-percent cost in 40 minutes at a 100-kW charger. However solely the Teslas have entry to the Supercharger community, they usually include credit without cost charging as much as 400 kWh at these stations.

Exterior and Inside Dimensions

In each measurable manner, the Jaguar is smaller than the 2 Teslas. It is about 14 inches shorter than the longest of the trio, the Mannequin X, and nonetheless about 12 inches shorter than the Mannequin S. It is also a number of inches narrower than each, and it is shorter in top than the Mannequin X. The Mannequin S is shorter than both, nevertheless it’s a extra conventional automotive than the Jaguar and Tesla crossovers. The accessible air suspension on the Teslas additionally permits each to have better floor clearance when wanted than the Jag.

Because of the Jaguar’s smaller measurement, it is smaller inside than each vehicles in most methods. Legroom and shoulder room is tighter than the Teslas, and the Jaguar solely barely squeaks out a bonus in headroom over the Mannequin S. The Jaguar has a most occupancy of 5 individuals, however the Teslas have choices for extra. The Mannequin X comes normal with seating for five, however might be had with a 3rd row and both captain’s or bench seating within the second row, bringing the full to six or 7. The Mannequin S can seat 5 in cheap consolation, however there’s a pair of leap seats within the cargo space, although they’re actually solely appropriate for terribly brief journeys or youngsters.

Unsurprisingly, the Mannequin X has essentially the most cargo capability, which is listed in a wierd manner due to the big selection of seating accessible. What’s attention-grabbing although is that, though the Jaguar is smaller than the Mannequin S, its rear cargo house continues to be considerably shut the Tesla’s.


Jaguar’s ace benefit is value. It is about $9,000 cheaper than the bottom Mannequin X, and it is about $four,000 cheaper than the Mannequin S. That is earlier than incentives, although the distinction ought to nonetheless be about the identical. Not less than they will be about the identical for now. The federal tax credit score of $7,500 for EVs is just accessible till an automaker sells 200,000 electrical vehicles. As soon as it reaches that time, the tax credit score will drop in half with it later disappearing altogether, and Tesla may hit the mark this yr. As soon as that occurs, the I-Tempo can have an even bigger value benefit.
