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.
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.
