THE FUTURE OF CAR OWNERSHIP
The I‑PACE has a range of up to 234 miles.10 This is enabled through its high-tech lithium-ion battery, which has a capacity of 90 kWh. Next-generation electric car technology and our passion for design combine to deliver a zero tailpipe emissions vehicle that remains unmistakably Jaguar.
Heating and air conditioning systems use energy, and this can reduce range.
These systems are most often used at the start of a journey, so to reduce the impact on range, the I‑PACE has the ability to precondition the interior ahead of departure while the car is still charging. This allows the I‑PACE to use electricity from the power supply, and not the battery, to heat or cool the interior.
Extreme low and high temperatures impact on how well a battery can maintain its level of charge.
The I‑PACE features sophisticated thermal management systems that help to keep the battery at its optimal temperature and minimize the impact of outside temperatures on the car's range.
One of the biggest impacts on range is the driver. Frequent, heavy acceleration will have a detrimental impact on the car's state of charge, whereas traveling at a steady pace will help an electric car preserve range. Gradual acceleration can also reduce your reliance on hard braking, which consumes more energy than gentle braking.
DRIVING IN TRAFFIC
Both acceleration and braking use power. Repeated acceleration and braking, as experienced in congested traffic, can be as draining on the battery as they are on the driver.
Maintaining a steady speed as much as possible during heavy traffic will help to preserve range.
CLEAN, CONVENIENT, HASSLE FREE
The battery of the I‑PACE is charged via the car’s plug-in charge point, discreetly located behind the front wheel arch. Once it’s plugged in, you are free to leave the I‑PACE to charge. The vehicle will automatically stop charging when it reaches full charge. It’s safe to charge the car in the rain, or even when parked in snow, as the charging system is entirely self-contained.
For optimum charging at home, you can purchase and install a Jaguar approved home charger. The I‑PACE is equipped with a 7 kW single-phase AC on-board charger, which can fully recharge the vehicle overnight when using a Jaguar approved home charger. Alternatively the Jaguar I‑PACE can be plugged in directly to a domestic socket. While charging directly via a domestic socket is slower than with a home charger, it should be sufficient to cover the average daily commute of 30 miles if the vehicle is charged overnight.
The best way to get a quick top up of your battery’s charge for those long journeys is with DC chargers — a typical 50 kW DC rapid charger can achieve a 0-80% charge in 85 minutes. The I-PACE is equipped to accept up to a 100 kW DC charge rate — this means you can easily achieve a 0-80% charge in just 45 minutes. Depending on the service provider, public AC and DC chargers can have a range of outputs. You can also find convenient charging points at places you may want to stay for several hours — or even overnight — including local shopping centers, hotels and gyms. Simply pull up, plug in, then go enjoy yourself.
Note: A DC rapid charger provides large amounts of energy in a short amount of time. The charging rate decreases as the battery reaches full capacity; therefore, in most cases it is quicker to rapid-charge up to 80 percent capacity or for the extended range required.
