Jaguar Updates I-Pace With Faster Charging And Improved Infotainment

Electric Vehicles / Comments

Is it enough to stop customers flocking to Tesla, though?

Jaguar has announced several updates to its award-winning I-Pace all-electric SUV in the UK, changes that should soon be expected stateside. Although the I-Pace hasn't been able to match Tesla's sales numbers, it's still a brilliant electric SUV and now, with its much better interior technology, it has a chance of appealing to even more buyers. For now, the I-Pace remains Jaguar's only EV, but not for much longer.

Perhaps the biggest change to the latest Jaguar I-Pace is the adoption of the new Pivi Pro infotainment system, which uses the same advanced software found on some newer Land Rover products. With greater responsiveness than before, the system's EV navigation can help you quickly locate nearby charging stations, although this feature is market-dependent. Setting your destination can be done more easily now because there are fewer steps in the process.

Pivi Pro comprises a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and two touchscreens in the center of the dashboard - an upper 10-inch screen and a five-inch lower screen. The HD instrument cluster has all-new graphics to more easily keep track of the battery's state of charge. A wireless charging pad can be optioned, which is located beneath the floating center console.

Other tech upgrades to the I-Pace include a new 3D surround-view camera system and an available Meridian 3D surround sound system. The latter features speakers in the headliner for a truly immersive experience. Also fitted is a ClearSite rearview mirror with a wide-angle camera, ensuring an unobstructed view even if three people are sitting in the back seat.

As before, the electric powertrain delivers a combined 394 horsepower and 513 lb-ft of torque. The WLTP-rated range is 292 miles, although the EPA's estimates will be closer to around 234 miles. The latest I-Pace has an 11 kW on-board charger with a full charge from empty taking 8.6 hours when hooked up to an 11 kW wall box. A 7 kW wall box increases that time to over 12 hours.

Outside, changes are minimal, not that the sexy I-Pace needed a redesign. There is a new Atlas Grey grille tip finish, different wheel designs, and an available Bright Pack. Caldera Red and Portofino Blue are colors that have been added to the revised palette.

In the UK, the latest I-Pace starts at £65,195 which works out to just over $80,000. That's about the same as the range-topping 2020 I-Pace HSE.
