Jaguar I-PACE now smarter, better connected and faster charging

THE Jaguar I-PACE has undergone an update, and now offers a new fast, intuitive infotainment system, and quicker charging capability, making owning and driving an electric vehicle easier than ever.

With two Jaguar designed electric motors at each axle, producing combined performance of 294kW and 696Nm, aluminium construction and a low centre of gravity, the I-PACE offers an unrivalled balance of all-wheel drive performance, refinement, luxury and agility.

The upgraded I-PACE is the first Jaguar to feature the new Pivi Pro infotainment system. As intuitive to use as a smartphone, Pivi Pro is fast and responsive with enhanced EV navigation that can show you if nearby charging stations are available.

it now also comes with an 11kW on-board charger as standard, enabling customers with access to three-phase electricity supplies to enjoy significantly faster charging, with a full charge from empty now taking just 8.6 hours; ideal for overnight charging at home.

Customers in single-phase markets using 7kW wall boxes also benefit from competitive charging capability of up to 35km of charge per hour, with a full charge taking 12.75 hours.

When charging ‘on the go’, a 50kW charger will add up to 63km in 15 minutes, whilst a 100kW charger will add up to 127km over the same period.

With a focus on air quality, occupant well-being is prioritised, with cabin air ionisation now featuring PM2.5 filtration to capture ultra fine airborne particles and allergens. The I-PACE can even filter its cabin air before a journey begins.

The exterior design is enhanced with a new Atlas Grey grille tip finish and customers benefit from an enhanced paint palette, new range of wheels, and a luxurious new Bright Pack option, along with the Black Pack, available on all models in the I-PACE range.

As mentioned, the new I-PACE features the Pivi Pro infotainment system, with a 12.3-inch high-definition virtual instrument cluster, 10-inch and 5-inch upper and lower touchscreens and multi-function, haptic rotary controllers.

Inspired by smartphones, Pivi Pro is easy to use, while its powerful processor and ‘fast start-up’ ensures the system is ready to go by the time you’re in the driving seat. Supported by a built-in back-up battery, navigation initialisation takes just a few seconds.

The new and intuitive flat menu structure makes navigating the system easy, with the features and functions you use regularly, accessible via the home screen with just a click.

The redesigned navigation system reduces the number of steps required to set a destination by half and customers are now able to pan and zoom in and out of the map with a pinch of the fingers, just as with a smartphone.

Navigation uses self-learning algorithms to optimise routing, voice guidance even knows to remain quiet when you’re travelling through areas you know, and maps will always be up to date thanks to software-over-the-air (SOTA) functionality.

The I-PACE is also available with an optional wireless charging pad beneath the ‘floating’ centre console. Wireless charging also includes signal boosting, ensuring the phone’s signal remains stronger for longer.

A Smartphone Pack with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard, as is Bluetooth technology which can pair two phones simultaneously, ensuring you’ll always be connected.

Safety has also been enhanced for the EV, which has a 5-star ANCAP safety rating, with visibility is significantly enhanced with a new 3D surround camera that provides a 360-degree digital plan of the surrounding area and potential hazards.

Inside the cabin, the ClearSight rear view mirror improves vision and convenience by ensuring the driver always has an unobstructed view of the road behind, even with three people in the rear seat or with the 656-litre luggage compartment loaded up to the roof.

ClearSight uses a wide-angle, rear-facing camera, linked to a high-resolution screen within the frameless glass mirror. A small toggle switch on the mirror allows the driver to switch seamlessly between the view from the standard mirror and the camera feed.

Neatly integrated within the roof-mounted antenna module, the high-definition camera works in all conditions, including low ambient light, while a protective lip and hydrophobic coating help to repel water and ensure the camera lens remains as clean as possible.

All occupants benefit from the enhanced climate control system, which delivers smart, energy-efficient heating or cooling of up to four zones independently.

A refreshed paint palette now features colours such as Caldera Red, Portofino Blue and Eiger Grey. There’s also a wider choice of wheels, with a new 19-inch design being offered for the first time on I-PACE, replacing the 18-inch wheels on S models in select markets.

Other optional extras include an enhanced Meridian 3D surround sound system with Trifield technology, which adds two additional speakers in the cabin headliner, meaning the 16-speaker and one sub-woofer arrangement delivers an exceptional experience.

The new Jaguar I-PACE is available to available to order now and is priced from $128,860 plus on-road costs.
