Owning the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE is now easier than ever before thanks to a pair of features focusing on use and cost; the new online range calculator and the Go I-PACE app.
The new online range calculator gives users greater insight into the effects that factors such as wheel size, temperature and other features have on the vehicle’s maximum range of 292 miles (WLTP).
By measuring daily use in any car, the Go I-PACE app, for iPhone or Android, allows would-be buyers to understand how the I-PACE would fit into their lives. The app calculates potential cost savings, how much battery would have been used per trip and the number of full charges that would be required to cover the cumulative distance driven, all by tracking individual user journey data via the location services on a smartphone.
Data captured by Jaguar’s Go I-PACE app has revealed that in the UK 87 per cent of owners could cover their weekly mileage with a maximum of just two full vehicle charges, with 52 per cent only needing to charge once every seven days.
More than 35,000 journeys logged by the intelligent smartphone app revealed that the average user clocked up to 216 miles per week, with an average journey measuring 8.4 miles. Plus, with a Jaguar-approved AC wall box (7kW) installed at home, drivers could achieve a zero to 80 per cent charge in just over 10 hours – ideal for overnight charging used by the majority of EV drivers.
When plugged in, I-PACE owners can even choose the time at which their vehicle begins charging in order to take advantage of cheaper energy tariffs.
Joanna Hewitt, Digital Innovations, Jaguar Land Rover said: “The Go I-PACE app was designed to demonstrate how EV ownership can benefit drivers, particularly in understanding journey impact on range and how often they would need to plug in. Looking at the data we have had so far it is clear to see that not only is I-PACE ownership cost-effective, it is extremely convenient too.”
The I-PACE also has a suite of smart range-optimising technologies including a battery pre-conditioning system which, when plugged in, automatically increases or lowers the temperature of the battery to maximise range before driving away.
