Jaguar I-Pace HSE 2019 review: snapshot

The HSE sits above the SE, expanding the 'Drive Pack' with the 'Driver Assist Pack'. (SE variant shown)

The $140,800 I-Pace HSE will be the top rung in the pure-electric SUV line-up in the long term, sitting $8600 above the $132,200 SE and $18,900 beneath the $159,700 First Edition that’s available for the first year of production.

On top of the SE’s features list, the HSE brings premium 'Windsor' leather seats, with heated and ventilated, 18-way adjustable memory fronts and heated rears, matrix LED headlights, auto powered tailgate, and 'Style 6007' 20-inch alloys.

It expands on the SE’s 'Drive Pack' with the 'Driver Assist Pack', with steering assist integrating with the adaptive cruise control to provide semi-autonomous ability and a 360-degree camera system. 

Providing electric drive to all four wheels are twin electric motors located on the front and rear axles, with combined outputs of 294kW/696Nm delivering claimed 0-100km/h acceleration in 4.8s. 

Its driving range is rated at 470km (WTLP) thanks to a 90kw/h battery lining the body's floor, which can be charged from empty in 43 hours via a standard power point, or regain 11km of charge per hour. 

You can step this up to 35km of range per hour with a Jet Charge wall box installed, which would cut the total charge time down to 13 hours.

There’s also the option of charging at public charge stations (currently 150 compatible stations nationwide), but the current best-case charge scenario would be via the first 350kW ultra-rapid charger installed in Victoria, which promises 0-80 per cent charge in around 40 minutes.

All I-Pace variants carry a maximum five star ANCAP safety rating.
