Regardless of packing a giant battery, this electrical Jag doesn’t provide ample electrical vary.
The numbers will not be formally official simply but, however Jaguar has offered EPA-estimated figures now.
In accordance with the automaker, the 90-kWh battery within the Jaguar I-Tempo gives up simply 234 miles of electrical vary. That’s lower than the bottom Tesla Mannequin X. Decrease than the Hyundai Kona Electrical and even beneath the vary ranking of the Chevy Bolt. All three of these autos have smaller capability battery packs.

Why the low outcome from such a giant battery? All of it boils right down to effectivity and that’s the place the I-Tempo falters.
The MPGe numbers for the I-Tempo are as follows:
- 80 MPGe Metropolis
- 72 MPGe Freeway
- 76 MPGe Mixed
These figures are downright terrible for a modern-day electrical automobile. In comparison with the Tesla Mannequin X 75D with a 75-kWh battery pack, which will get 91 MPGe metropolis, 95 MPGe freeway and 93 MPGe mixed, the I-Tempo clearly suffers inefficiency points. However hey, we laid this all out again in August, so really we aren’t stunned.
A much less environment friendly electrical automobile means more cash out of your pockets to cost, so resolve for your self if it’s price it or not.
