How Do They Differ?

  • The first thing to know about the Tesla brand is that there are no dealerships in Newton MA, so how is a person to know they are compatible with the Model S? With the Jaguar I-PACE, you can test drive it right here at our dealership before deciding to take it home on the spot.
  • Finding quality care for a Tesla Model S may be difficult, but with our service team, you can get the quality maintenance, and brake repairs performed right here for your convenience -- and you know we'll never use anything but genuine Jaguar parts.
  • Both models provide AWD, but the Model S provides 328 horsepower and 387 pound-feet of torque while the I-PACE provides 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque.
  • The base price for the I-PACE is quite a bit less than that of the Model S, so you won't have to tighten your belt as much.
  • Drivers in Quincy MA will appreciate how the I-PACE provides a panoramic roof, four-zone climate control, and voice-activated controls. Does the Model S offer these features?
  • With the Jaguar I-PACE, you can enjoy Traffic Sign Recognition, Head-Up Display, and Lane Keep Assist, but the Model S from Tesla doesn't have these listed as an option, even on the highest trim.
  • Emergency Brake Assist is offered as a standard feature on the I-PACE, but the Model S charges you extra for the Enhanced Autopilot feature.
