 The electric vehicle market is heating up, and no two electric SUVs have captured Burbank drivers’ attention like the 2023 Jaguar I-PACE and the 2023 Tesla Model Y. Both electric SUVs are stylish, powerful, and brimming with the latest technology, making it difficult to choose which to purchase when upgrading to your next EV SUV. Find out more about the difference between the Jaguar I-PACE and Tesla Model Y with this comparison guide from Rusnak/Pasadena Jaguar to decide which electric model will suit your Los Angeles drives best.

Jaguar I-PACE vs. Tesla Model Y: Performance & Drive

When comparing the standard Jaguar I-PACE and the entry-level Standard Range Tesla Model Y, it becomes clear that even though both models offer dual electric motors, the 2023 I-PACE offers slightly more acceleration. With the 2023 Jaguar I-PACE capable of reaching 0-60 mph in as little as 4.5 seconds, it blows past the base Tesla Model Y, which can hit that same speed in 5 seconds. 

Speed isn’t the only way the I-PACE enhances your drive. As a luxury brand, Jaguar puts a smooth, comfortable ride at the forefront of its driving experiences, which can be seen in the Jaguar I-PACE model’s slightly longer wheelbase. Measuring 117.7 inches, the 2023 I-PACE promises a silky ride through Glendale, more so than the Model Y’s 113.8-inch wheelbase.

Jaguar I-PACE vs. Tesla Model Y: Interior Features

A smooth driving experience isn’t the only way the Jaguar I-PACE pulls ahead. While choosing the 2023 Jaguar I-PACE or Tesla Model Y grants you access to a wide range of cutting-edge technology features, from panoramic glass roofs to the latest infotainment systems, there are some key differences between the two interiors that lean in the electric Jaguar SUV’s favor:

  • Seating Materials & Comfort: When you choose a 2023 Jaguar I-PACE, genuine leather seats come standard throughout the cabin, and the front seats come with both a heating and cooling function to cater to all kinds of climates. The Tesla Model Y, meanwhile, only offers simulated leather and comes equipped with heating modes only.
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay® & Android Auto™: Jaguar, like other premium models on the market, makes wireless smartphone integration for both Apple and Android phones a standard feature. Tesla does not– if you’d like to connect your smartphone to the Model Y, the only way to do so is through Bluetooth, which limits the number of features you have access to as you drive.
  • Sound System: Whether you’re listening to your favorite podcast or cranking the tunes on your Alhambra drives, you’ll have a sophisticated sound system in the Jaguar I-PACE or Tesla Model Y. That said, the Model Y’s sound system is built in-house at Tesla and caps out at 14 speakers, while the Jaguar I-PACE boasts a 15-speaker audio system from the experts at Meridian™.
