The electric Jaguar I-Pace gets high marks for its abilities on the road. But it's still a Jaguar Land Rover product, which means it should be just as capable off the road, too. The I-Pace can wade nearly 20 inches of water, besting the Subaru Outback by about an inch.

Its approach angle of 16 degrees isn't hugely impressive, but with full-time all-wheel drive (and decent tyres), it can tackle the relatively rough stuff when need be. The same can't be said for plenty of other EVs.
