SEE HOW JAGUAR I‑PACE CAN FIT INTO YOUR LIFE

Go Jaguar I‑PACE can automatically track your journeys and give you facts and figures as if you were actually driving the new all-electric Jaguar I‑PACE.

  • A: 1. Increased interior Space: Due to the removal of traditional engine vehicle component such as the transmission tunnel and the Engine, Battery Electric Vehicles can offer a more spacious interior driving experience. ​
    2. Charging at home: Charging your vehicle at home enables you to wake up with a full charge every morning without ever having to move from the comfort of your own home. ​
    3. Instant torque and quiet interior: Dual motors power the vehicle, providing instant torque and removing the need to change gears, providing a more serene and tranquil driving environment. ​
    4. Re-generative braking: By harvesting the energy from braking this can be turned into supplementary range to help extend your journey distance​.
    5. I-PACE specific - Cab forward Design: Due to the removal of the engine, the I-PACE benefits from a Cab forward Design.
  • A: I-PACE is a Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), which means it doesn’t have a combustion engine. Instead of burning fuel (petrol or diesel), power is supplied to two electric motors in the form of electricity stored in a rechargeable battery.

    Other types of electric vehicles include Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs). These refer to vehicles that combine a combustion engine with an electric motor.

    A HEV typically has a small battery that is charged by the engine and regenerative braking. The vehicle has a very small electric-only range.

    A PHEV can also be charged from an external source of electricity. A PHEV typically has a larger battery and longer range than a HEV.
  • A: The range of an electric vehicle (the distance that can be travelled before having to recharge the battery) has traditionally been a concern, giving rise to the term ‘range anxiety’. However, the latest developments in battery technologies mean that vehicles such as Jaguar I-PACE are now a realistic proposition for most people. Many owners will find that they only need to charge Jaguar I-PACE once a week. 

    For long distance journeys, a stop may be necessary to charge the battery. This may require some advanced planning, but with over 5,000 charging locations* already compatible with Jaguar I-PACE, finding a convenient public charge continues to become easier.
  • A: Motor manufacturers are working with governments and energy providers to ensure that increases in electric vehicle usage do not cause issues with electricity networks.
  • A: Most Jaguar Retailers each have an EV specialist who you can put your questions to. If you would like to find out more about I-PACE, try downloading the Go I-PACE. In the comfort of your current vehicle, this uses your real time driving data to simulate what it could be like owning an EV. Providing you with key statistics such as when you might need to charge your vehicle or how long you can typically expect your range to last based on your driving behaviours.

RANGE

SELECT MODEL

-

  • A: Range can be affected by a number of factors, including external temperature, operating the heating or cooling systems and the speed at which you are driving.
  • A: The range prediction for I-PACE has been engineered to generate a high level of accuracy. Using meticulously engineered algorithms, the vehicle will make predictions based on your current driving style and the last 500 miles average usage. Additional vehicles inputs such as the vehicles navigation system assist in the prediction using features such as the topography and speed limits of your selected route.
  • A: Once the battery is drained of energy, the vehicle will come to a complete halt. But before things get to that stage, you’ll receive two separate and distinct alerts. The first one, when there’s 10% of charge left in the battery, will be an audible alarm accompanied by a yellow warning triangle on the vehicle display panel. The second alert, when there’s 0% of charge, will be another audible alarm together with a red triangle. A message will then appear telling you to shut down the vehicle and pull over.
  • A: I-PACE features LED headlights which are incredibly energy efficient, so driving with your lights on will not make any noticeable difference to the vehicle’s range.

BATTERY

SELECT MODEL

-

  • A: Kilowatt-hours are a measure of how much energy can be stored in a battery. For a given vehicle, a battery with greater capacity ‑ more kWh ‑ will have greater range and/or performance.
  • A: I-PACE’s battery would only become flammable through misuse or outside intervention. Electric vehicle batteries are less flammable than petroleum or diesel and feature sophisticated safety systems that maintain safe temperatures.
  • A: Batteries can be stored as low as -40°C, but must be plugged in and heated to -20°C before driving. In long-lasting hot or cold temperatures an electric vehicle’s range is reduced because energy is required to keep the battery at an efficient operating temperature. Energy is also needed to warm up the cabin when the temperature is low.

    I-PACE features state-of-the-art thermal management systems to optimise battery performance in warmer or cooler temperatures.
  • A: I-PACE has an efficient thermal management system that maintains the temperature of the battery. An electric vehicle battery will, typically, be between 15°C and 30°C, which is considerably cooler than an internal combustion engine.
  • A: I-PACE’s warranty is limited to 8 years or 100,000 miles (160,000km) (whichever comes first). It is redeemable in the case of any manufacturing defect or should a certified Jaguar retailer measure that the battery has dropped below a 70 percent state of health.
  • A: Electric vehicle batteries will be disposed of in line with the End of Life Vehicles Directive, relevant to regional requirements or your local market.

PERFORMANCE

-

  • A: Electric cars generate maximum torque from standstill, delivering impressive acceleration.

    The battery’s location, between the two axles, also provides a lower centre of gravity and an even weight distribution for improved handling. And, without the need to package a big engine in the front, the wheels can be positioned nearer to the outermost corners of the vehicle enhancing stability and steering feel.

    All of this enables a dynamic and responsive driving experience, which remains unmistakably Jaguar.
  • A: Electric motors consume energy to provide motion. When this motion is no longer required, for example when the vehicle is slowing, the braking force can be harnessed to reverse the action of the motor and generate electricity. The electricity generated can be fed back to the battery, extending the vehicle's range.
  • A: Jaguar I-PACE has three driver modes that can automatically adapt the vehicle settings for comfort, dynamic or eco (for range preservation).

**WLTP (Worldwide harmonised Light vehicle Test Procedure) is the new process that has been phased in from 2017, which measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions in passenger vehicles in Europe. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile.


This figure has been obtained from the 'Driving and Parking Patterns of European Car Drivers' mobility survey, conducted by the European Commission.
