Jaguar I-Pace updated with faster charging and new infotainment

5 Jaguar  I-Pace 2021

Jaguar has updated its I-Pace electric car, adding a faster charging capability and a new infotainment system with better connectivity.

The revised model is available to order now, priced from £65,195.

While the I-Pace retains the same twin electric motor setup and 90kWh battery, it is now fitted with an 11kW on-board charger.

This means the I-Pace can be charged from a three-phase (11kW) wallbox from 0-100% in around eight hours.

When charging ‘on the go’, a 50kW charger will add up to 39 miles in 15 minutes, while a 100kW charger will add up to 78 miles over the same period.

The I-Pace has a maximum range of 292 miles.

Jaguar’s new Pivi Pro infotainment system features a 12.3-inch high-definition virtual instrument cluster, 10-inch and five-inch upper and lower touchscreens and multi-function, haptic rotary controllers.

The manufacturer says the new system was inspired by smartphones and is easier to use then the previous version. There is also a backup battery to ensure the sat-nav system is ready to go straight away.

All I-Pace models now come with a complimentary 4G data plan too, allowing drivers to access music steaming, maps, weather and traffic data.

To assist with charging, the Pivi Pro system is able to show charging point availability, as well as cost and the estimated charging time.

Visibility is enhanced with the addition of a 3D Surround Camera system as standard which provides a 360-degree digital plan view of the surrounding area and potential hazards, visible through the central touchscreen.

The new I-Pace also benefits from a ClearSight rear view mirror, which uses a camera mounted on the rear of the car to provide an unobstructed view of the road behind.

An enhanced climate control system includes cabin air ionisation designed to remove allergens. It features a filtration system that captures ultrafine particles – including PM2.5 particulates – to improve occupant health and wellbeing.

Visual changes are limited to new chrome or grey trim pieces, new colours and a 19-inch alloy wheel design for the entry-level model.

Meeting the challenges of Covid-19 - a Fleet News survey

Fleet News is asking for fleet decision-makers’ experience of handling the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic with a quick-fire, multiple choice survey.
