Two of the biggest names in the electric vehicle segment are Jaguar and Tesla, and while Tesla was once the talk of the town in Malibu, Jaguar has proven that it’s the toughest competition around. In this guide, we compare the 2023 Jaguar I-PACE vs. Tesla Model Y to see why Tesla may be old news for savvy Pacific Palisades drivers.

Jaguar I-PACE vs. Tesla: Performance

The Jaguar I-PACE is only offered in one configuration, which means it was designed to do everything well. The Tesla Model Y, on the other hand, makes you choose between range and performance. The Jaguar I-PACE has a 0 to 60 mph acceleration of just 4.5 seconds, while the Model Y Long Range falls short with 4.8 seconds. But the I-PACE is also competitive with the Model Y Performance with sporty features like open differential with Torque Vectoring and signature Jaguar Drive Control. Why choose when you can experience the best of both worlds?

Jaguar I-PACE vs. Tesla: Customization

Though the Tesla Model Y is offered in two configurations, the options for customization are surprisingly limited. You can take your pick of five different exterior colors in basic hues, and accept the standard tires that come with every model. Or you could opt for the Jaguar I-PACE, and choose between 12 eye-popping shades in different finishes to suit your style – along with five different wheel choices. That means you can create a custom I-PACE in a rich Firenze Red or Portofino Blue with 22-inch gloss black wheels, or settle for a Tesla Model Y with standard 21-inch wheels in a simple Solid Black.

Jaguar I-PACE vs. Tesla: Warranty

Not only can you take advantage of potential tax credits and incentives, but Jaguar also offers an extensive warranty plan. The basic vehicle warranty is the best in its class, offering 5 full years of coverage, and Jaguar even offers complimentary maintenance to protect your investment. See the difference between the Jaguar I-PACE vs. Tesla below:

Jaguar I-PACE

  • Basic Vehicle – 5-year or 60,000-mile coverage
  • Battery & Drive Unit – 8-year or 100,000-mile coverage
  • Complimentary maintenance – 5-year or 60,000-mile coverage

Tesla Model Y

  • Basic Vehicle – 4-year or 50,000-mile coverage
  • Battery & Drive Unit – 8-year or 120,000-mile coverage
