Jaguar I-Pace interior space & storage

The I-Pace feels bigger inside than you might expect from looking at it, offering plenty of space for rear-seat passengers but it's quite a bit smaller than the Audi e-tron and Tesla Model X, which can come with five, six or seven seats. The shape of the I-Pace results in plenty of headroom, and the lack of a transmission tunnel makes sitting in the middle rear seat more comfortable than it is in a conventionally powered car. Seating three adults in the back shouldn’t be a problem, although shoulder room may be restricted.

The interior offers occupants a total of three 12V sockets and six USB ports, as well as handy storage trays under the rear seats for laptops and tablets.

Boot space

The I-Pace has 557 litres of boot space, which expands to 1,453 litres with the rear seats folded down. With the rear seats out of the way, the boot is totally flat, making it easy to slide in long, heavy items. A 'frunk' space under the bonnet provides a 27-litre cubby, which is big enough for shopping, soft bags or charging cables.

Towing

Many electric cars can't tow at all, but the Jaguar I-Pace can manage a 750kg trailer (either braked or unbraked). That's not a huge figure - you'll be able to tow a small trailer but not a caravan. If you need an electric car capable of towing large trailers, the Mercedes EQC and Audi e-tron can haul up to 1,800kg and the Tesla Model X can tow 2,270kg.
