Recently, when a Tesla Model 3 owner got a chance to park his car beside a Jaguar I-PACE, something struck his mind — both vehicles were at least the same length and, when checking the numbers, noticed the width of the Model 3 is only 1.8″ (46 mm) less than the I-PACE.
The only significant difference between the two is height — the I-PACE is almost 4.5 inches (114 mm) taller than the Model 3. Comparing the I-PACE to the Model X, the latter classifies as an SUV while the I-PACE merely ranks as a CUV, but perhaps its real direct competitor will be the forthcoming Tesla Model Y — but we don’t yet have the size/specs on that.
Jaguar has been emphasizing that the I-PACE as a Tesla Model X rival since the launch, but let’s check out what the numbers demonstrate in the following comparison table of all three EVs discussed above.

Even though considerably smaller in length than the Tesla Model X, the Jaguar I-PACE still has a long 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.
The Jaguar I-Pace being compared to a Tesla Model X is a bit puzzling. The dimensions are not similar.
Regardless of size, Tesla’s Model X appears to outshine Jaguar’s I-PACE looking at a number of key data points. So, although the price differential falls in Jaguar’s favor (when compared to the Model X), it will be fascinating to see how the I-PACE stacks up against Tesla’s forthcoming Model Y.
