    For the longest time, the Tesla Model X has established itself as the fastest SUV in the market. With the introduction of the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE, however, the Model X is meeting what could very well be its biggest challenger to date. What happens, then, when the Model X comes face-to-face against the I-PACE in a standing drag and rolling race? As it turns out, pure unadulterated racing fun.

    The guys at YouTube’s CarWow channel featured the all-electric SUVs on its recent drag race video, with the Jaguar I-PACE going head-to-head with the Model X 100D and the supercar-killing Model X P100D. On paper, the Jaguar is comparable to the Model X 100D, with 400 hp and a 0-60 mph time of 4.8 seconds. The Model X 100D, on the other hand, features 525 hp and a 0-60 time of 4.9 seconds. Finally, the big dog of the group, the Model X P100D, has 772 hp and a 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds. The YouTube channel opted to conduct three tests among the all-electric SUVs - a standing drag race, a rolling race from 50 mph, and a braking test from 70 mph.

    The Jaguar performed very well in the standing quarter-mile race, shooting off the line and dominating the Model X 100D. Unfortunately for the Model X 100D, it had a bad start, moving off the line a fraction of a second later than the Jaguar I-PACE and the P100D. As the result, the 100D lagged, finishing the race at 13.2 seconds, notably slower than the Jaguar I-PACE’s 12.8 seconds. Of course, the Model X P100D pretty much walked all over both the I-PACE and the Model X 100D, shooting off as soon as the race started and finishing the run at 11.4 seconds, more than a second faster than the I-PACE.

    The rolling race from 50 mph rendered some surprising results. Between the I-PACE and the 100D, the Jaguar actually has more torque at 700 Nm, while the Model X 100D has 660 Nm. As soon as the rolling race began, however, the Model X 100D pulled hard and left the Jaguar I-PACE behind. Just like the previous race, the Model X P100D with its more than 900 Nm also dominated the race, pulling far ahead of the two other electric SUVs.

    The results of the brake test among the vehicles were rather compelling. All three all-electric SUVs slammed on their brakes from 70 mph, and based on the results of CarWow‘s test; the Jaguar actually required the least amount of distance to stop, even less than the Model X P100D, which is equipped with performance brakes. The Jaguar I-PACE’s lighter weight compared to both the Model X 100D and the Model X P100D, however, could be an explanation for the brake test’s results.

    Overall, it appears that Jaguar has created quite a vehicle with the I-PACE. It’s fast on its feet, stylish, and it has impressive stopping power. The only thing against the I-PACE is really its limited storage capacity, which stands at a measly 40.58 cubic feet with the rear seats folded, far less than the Model X’s 88.1 cubic feet of storage. The I-PACE’s storage, despite being a small SUV, is even less than the Model S, which has 58.1 cubic feet of space with its rear seats folded down. Nevertheless, being able to stand toe-to-toe with the Model X is no small feat, considering that the all-electric SUV is regarded not only for its acceleration, but its insane pulling power as well.

    Watch the Jaguar I-PACE take on the Model X 100D and the Model X P100D in the video below.

    About time this was made after the last one where they (Jaguar) said bring out the P100D and a standard 100d came out clearing trying to trick people into thinking that the Ipace was against Tesla's fastest car, yes there is a large price difference the 100d and the p but it was clear Jaguar tried to deceive people into thinking it was the P100d when it wasn't.

    WHAT does that have to do with both TESLA getting their butts kicked on braking?

    TESLA MUST get shorter braking distances on rotors that don't warp & pads that don't burn..

    The current I PACE doesn't compete with a P100D.. but I doubt jag will settle w/o a similar performance option to clip the falcon wing goose.

    Probably for $20K less..

    I don't think the storage space will be a deal breaker.. not many folks are actually known to take these glory SUV's on long trips anyway.. they have a class A motor home with a king bed and 3 side pops for that.

    Yes room for improvement on braking.

    Still the Tesla challenge video by Jaguar was deceiving, when they said bring out the p100d and the 100d comes out.

    Having seen the ipace in person it’s decent enough looking but I would be concerned on the charging options as in the UK it’s limited.

    The performance issues are null when the Jaguar doesn't have a good charging solution. Even with the Tesla superchargers trips are a bit dreary with a focus on charging rather than your destinations. Any other brand makes trips downright ridiculous. Maybe in 5 years the other cars will be supported by adequate charger networks. By then Tesla will have many times as many chargers allowing much more flexible charging on short and long trips.
