Jaguar has launched a free app that can help company car drivers understand if an electric vehicle (EV) would be suitable for their driving habits.
The Go I-Pace app captures journey data while driving and will show how many journeys, if any, would have needed a stop to charge the EV’s battery.
Calculations are based on usage of the new Jaguar I-Pace potential cost savings can be compared against the user’s regular vehicle.
When opening the app, users can enter the real-world fuel economy of their existing vehicle to calculate the cost savings switching to the I-Pace would deliver. Once enough journeys have been logged, the app will estimate the range drivers can expect to achieve from a full charge.
Jaguar says the I-Pace’s 298-mile range is suitable for 98% of journeys to be completed on a single charge.
An interactive map allows users to search for the nearest charging points along a chosen route or within a local area.
“Making the switch to EV ownership is a big decision. We’re confident anyone who experiences the I-Pace will relish its engaging driving dynamics, performance, practicality and comfort. What a test drive doesn’t show is the lower running costs and convenience of living with our electric performance SUV on a daily basis. The Go I-Pace app is designed to help potential customers make an informed decision,” said Ian Hoban, vehicle line director at Jaguar.
