Jaguar has used learning from the racetrack to give the all-electric I-Pace a 12.5-mile real-world range improvement – for FREE.

All existing I-Pace owners can benefit from the free electric range improvement by visiting their local Jaguar dealer.

The update also adds on ‘software-over-the-air’ functionality, similar to the technology used by Tesla. This allows Jaguar to remotely send software improvements, so owners don’t have to visit dealers for future updates.

Racing improves the breed

The Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy was introduced in 2018. Supporting Formula E, identical I-Paces compete in the world’s first production-based all-electric race series.

The updates see the all-wheel drive system work more efficiently, while the active radiator vanes will close more frequently to boost aerodynamic efficiency.

Jaguar will also run the battery in a lower state of charge than before, eking out more miles per charge, without harming durability or performance.

Stephen Boulter, I-Pace vehicle engineering manager, said: “The Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy has generated a huge amount of data for us to analyse and those marginal gains, derived from competition on the track, are now being applied to customers’ cars to further enhance their driving experience.”

Best electric bike 2019: nail the commute in style with the best e-bikes

  Best electric bike 2019: nail the commute in style with the best e-bikes We've got the right electric bike for easy riders with ebikes from under £1000 to over £4000 for commuting and off-roadAttitudes to electric bikes have changed in recent years. For a long time they were seen by cyclists as 'cheating' and by non-cyclists as being just like a bike, but uglier and far more expensive. This new breed of best-in-class electric bikes feel more natural, look more normal, and people are coming around to the idea that a ride with the convenience of a bike but without all the sweat and effort is a Very Good Thing.

Other updates include tweaks to the regenerative braking. More energy is recovered at lower speed, and energy recuperation is now more efficient when the battery is fully charged.

Jaguar has even upgraded the predicted range display on the dashboard. This is more accurate and consistent, and better reflects an individual driving style.

“The new software updates optimise the powertrain control systems to improve efficiency and allow I-Pace drivers to travel even further on a single charge without any hardware changes,” added Boulter.

“It really is a case of the vehicle getting better with age.”

The I-Pace’s 90 kWh battery still gives a maximum 292-mile WLTP-rated range, along with 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds. The official range figure is unchanged; it’s the real-world range that gets the 12.5-mile boost.

Jaguar says it will charge in around 10 hours using a 7kW home wall box, or just 40 minutes using a high-power 100kW rapid charger.

The updated Jaguar I-Pace range is now on sale, with prices from £60,995.
