Parkers overall rating: 4.2 out of 5 4.2
  • Lots of rear passenger and luggage space
  • No transmission tunnel taking up room
  • Additional space under the 'bonnet'

Even though it’s an SUV, the I-Pace has a lower, sportier look than the E-Pace and F-Pace crossovers and sits between those two models size-wise – at 4,682mm it’s 50mm shorter than an F-Pace, if 271mm longer than an E-Pace. The lack of a conventional engine and gearbox has allowed Jaguar designers to create an extremely futuristic shape, with a very short nose and the cabin pushed forward like a mid-engined supercar.

Combined with a distance between the front and rear wheels that’s some 130mm greater than the F-Pace, the I-Pace has an extremely spacious cabin, despite its relatively compact proportions. This is why a six-feet tall passenger sitting behind a similar-sized adult will find a couple of inches of knee- and head-room. The spacious rear accommodation is also helped by the almost entirely flat floor, where normally a bulky transmission tunnel would compromise space.

Jaguar quotes a 656-litre boot capacity with the rear seats up, 1,435 litres when they’re folded. There’s also a 10.5-litre storage cubby between the front seats, and a tiny front boot.

There is a more conventional centre console between the front seats, but it houses the ventilation system and it’s incorporated in such a way that it makes it easy to access the touchscreen infotainment system and various controls arranged neatly on it.

Delve beneath the superficial appeal of the touchscreens for more advanced technology such as sat-nav settings optimised to electric car-friendly routes including recharging points, and access to Jaguar’s remote app via Amazon’s Alexa in addition to the more usual smartphone access.

Safety
