4.5/5

For the first year of production, the Jaguar I-Pace HSE is also available in the limited First Edition guise, which adds a bunch of usually optional extras for a discounted package price. Sitting $18,900 above the regular HSE, the $159,700 First Edition adds $23,440 worth of options.

Beyond the HSE, the First Edition adds a fixed panoramic glass roof (usually $3380), tinted windows ($845), gloss black window surrounds ($598), front fog lights ($403) and 20-inch 'Style 5070' alloys ($390 on HSE).

The inside scores First Edition sill plates, the full extended leather package to include dash and more ($2763), four-zone climate control ($1820), Alcantara headlining ($2496), First Edition-specific wood trim, the 'Cold Climate Pack' ($1060) of heated steering wheel, heated windscreen and windscreen washers, variable ambient lighting ($507), head-up display ($1040), waterproof activity key ($910), carpet mats ($299) and DAB+ digital radio ($520).

Under the skin the First Edition adds active airbag suspension ($2002), 'Adaptive Dynamics' with configurable drive modes ($2405) and 'Adaptive Surface Response' ($2002) to optimise its loose surface ability. 

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.

$130,200 - $140,800
