Jaguar I-Pace is a Tesla Model 3 competitor by size not a Model X rival

Recently when a Tesla Model 3 owner got a chance to park his car near beside a Jaguar I-Pace, something struck his mind, both vehicles were at least the same length and when checking the numbers the width of the Model 3 is only 1.8″ (46 mm) less than the I-Pace.

The only significant difference between the both is ‘height’, the I-Pace is almost 4.5 inches (114 mm) taller than the Model 3, while comparing the I-Pace to the Model X, the latter classifies as an SUV while the I-Pace merely ranks as a CUV — perhaps it truly competes with the upcoming Tesla Model Y but we do not have size numbers on that yet.

Jaguar has been emphasizing that the I-Pace is a Tesla Model X rival since the launch and even made a commercial showing both cars racing (Model X loses, duh!).

Let’s check out what the numbers say in the following comparison table of all three EVs discussed above.

Jaguar I-Pace vs. Tesla Model 3 and Model X - Exterior Dimensions Comparison

Length184.3 in ( 4,682 mm )184.8 in ( 4,694 mm ) 198.3 in ( 5,036 mm )

Overall Height61.6 in ( 1,565 mm )56.8 in ( 1,442 mm )66 in ( 1,684 mm )

Front track63.9 – 64.9 in ( 1,624 – 1,643 mm )62.2 in ( 1580 mm )65.4 in ( 1,661 mm )
Rear Track64 – 65.4 in ( 1,647 – 1,663 mm )62.2 in ( 1580 mm )66.9 in ( 1,699 mm )

Even when considerably smaller in length than the Tesla Model X, the Jaguar I-Pace’s wheelbase is still a slightly longer wheelbase and the side mirrors of the I-Pace are super wide giving the car’s width an almost ~10 inches of a stretch when open.

When u/NetBrown from the Tesla Subreddit got a chance to park his Tesla Model 3 besides a beautiful Jaguar I-Pace in a parking lot, we got a glimpse of how these vehicles look when standing side-by-side from different angles — the pictures below speak for themselves.

Taking a look at the pictures above especially the rear and front angles of the Tesla Model 3 and Jaguar I-Pace standing side-by-side, we can see that the length of both vehicles is almost identical, however, the width of the I-Pace can be felt with the naked eye.

The roof pictures are taken also shows little difference in height but that could be a weird camera angle, however, there seems to be not a big difference in both vehicles, Jaguar Land Rover comparing it to a Tesla Model X is not great on their part.

Another set of pictures from an owner of both the Jaguar I-Pace and Tesla Model X show the visual comparison between the vehicles, this is clearly SUV vs. CUV, let’s take a closer look and let us know your thoughts in the comments section down below.

    Wow, last week TESLA cracked the 400,000 mark on the number of Model 3 produced.
    Today it’s almost 6000 more! Alone since I went online this morning there are already 70 vehicles. TESLA has gone down, if they have to build more factories, other manufacturers of old cars will have to dress up warm!
