A: Electric vehicles offer a more refined drive and the convenience of being able to charge at home.
As electricity supplies are increasingly delivered from renewable sources, electric vehicles offer environmental benefits over vehicles with fuel-burning combustion engines. And, as they produce zero tailpipe emissions, electric vehicles can also help reduce air pollution.
These and other benefits are increasingly being recognised by local and national governments. A range of incentives are available to encourage drivers to purchase an electric vehicle. Further details are available on the Electric Vehicle Incentives page.
A: I-PACE is a Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), which means it doesn’t have a combustion engine. Instead of burning fuel (petrol or diesel), power is supplied to two electric motors in the form of electricity stored in a rechargeable battery.
Other types of electric vehicles include Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs). These refer to vehicles that combine a combustion engine with an electric motor.
A HEV typically has a small battery that is charged by the engine and regenerative braking. The vehicle has a very small electric-only range.
A PHEV can also be charged from an external source of electricity. A PHEV typically has a larger battery and longer range than a HEV.
A: The range of an electric vehicle (the distance that can be travelled before having to recharge the battery) has traditionally been a concern, giving rise to the term ‘range anxiety’. However, the latest developments in battery technologies mean that vehicles such as I-PACE are now a realistic proposition for most people. For long distance journeys, a stop may be necessary to charge the battery. This may require some advanced planning, but this continues to become easier as public charging networks expand and rapid chargers increase in power.
A: Motor manufacturers are working with governments and energy providers to ensure that increases in electric vehicle usage do not cause issues with electricity networks.
A:Each Jaguar Retailer has an EV Specialist who can answer all your questions about I-PACE and electric cars more generally.
Alternatively, you can ask one of our EV Specialists a question using the online form located below.
A: Range can be affected by a number of factors, including external temperature, operating the heating or cooling systems and the speed at which you are driving.
A: The range prediction for I-PACE is designed to be extremely accurate. The electric motor control module will make predictions based on your current driving style and the last 500 miles’ average usage. The navigation system will assist the prediction of range by including data regarding the topography and speed limits of your selected route.
A: Once the battery is drained of energy, the vehicle will come to a complete halt. But before things get to that stage, you’ll receive two separate and distinct alerts. The first one, when there’s 10% of charge left in the battery, will be an audible alarm accompanied by a yellow warning triangle on the vehicle display panel. The second alert, when there’s 0% of charge, will be another audible alarm together with a red triangle. A message will then appear telling you to shut down the vehicle and pull over.
A: I-PACE features LED headlights which are incredibly energy efficient, so driving with your lights on will not make any noticeable difference to the vehicle’s range.
A: Kilowatt-hours are a measure of how much energy can be stored in a battery. For a given vehicle, a battery with greater capacity ‑ more kWh ‑ will have greater range and/or performance.
A: I-PACE’s battery would only become flammable through misuse or outside intervention. Electric vehicle batteries are less flammable than petroleum or diesel and feature sophisticated safety systems that maintain safe temperatures.
A: Batteries can be stored as low as -40°C, but must be plugged in and heated to -20°C before driving. In long-lasting hot or cold temperatures an electric vehicle’s range is reduced because energy is required to keep the battery at an efficient operating temperature. Energy is also needed to warm up the cabin when the temperature is low.
I-PACE features state-of-the-art thermal management systems to optimise battery performance in warmer or cooler temperatures.
A: I-PACE has an efficient thermal management system that maintains the temperature of the battery. An electric vehicle battery will, typically, be between 15°C and 30°C, which is considerably cooler than an internal combustion engine.
A: Yes. I‑PACE’s battery has a 8 years or 160.000km (100.000 miles) warranty and is redeemable if the battery drops below a 70 percent state of health.
A: Electric vehicle batteries will be disposed of in line with the End of Life Vehicles Directive, relevant to regional requirements or your local market.
A: With an approved Jaguar wall box installed, a full charge can be achieved in approximately 13 hours.
A: Jaguar have authorised wall box suppliers and installers for all markets in which I-PACE is available. Our partners are available to advise upon the best solutions for you. Please consult your local Jaguar Retailer for further information.
A: No. If you would like to install a wall box in your home, your local Jaguar Retailer will be able to guide you through the process with our approved wall box suppliers and installers.
A: Your wall box supplier will be able to provide a quote to remove your wall box and re-install it at your new home.
A: Yes. Our approved wall boxes are equipped for use with the Combined Charging System (CCS) connector for AC charging and a DC charging inlet. Any electric vehicle with these connections will be able to charge using our approved wall box.
A: Any Mode 3 wall box with the same charging connections as I-PACE can be used to charge the vehicle.
A: Our approved wall box suppliers are capable of installing charging solutions for a variety of homes. They will support you with regard to permissions, permits and suitability.
A:The price of electricity fluctuates according to market influences. To calculate the cost for a full charge, simply multiply the rate you are charged per kWh by 90, as I-PACE has a 90kWh battery.
A: Yes. Your vehicle can be charged with a current that is greater than 2 Amps or 750W.
A: As long as the charge point offers the same standard and connector as your vehicle, and you have an account with the charge point provider, you can use that public charging station.
However, public charging stations owned by specific manufacturers can only be used by vehicles from that manufacturer.
A: An independent network of rapid vehicle chargers is developing quickly across many countries. We will ensure that all Jaguar electric vehicles are compatible with this network.
A: You can use I-PACE’s in-car navigation or the Remote app to find charging stations before you travel.
A: The Public Charging (Mode 3) Cable locks into the vehicle inlet and remains locked until you unlock I-PACE.
A: No. I-Pace cannot be driven while a charging cable is plugged in.
A: Yes. Customers and bystanders are not exposed to any risk of electric shock.
A: You’ll find the rate of battery charge is influenced by the chemistry and physics of the battery itself. That’s why DC charging can take as long to charge the remaining 20% as it does to charge the initial 80%. With this in mind, we’ve designed a Charging Management System to boost the life and performance of your vehicle’s battery.
A: Our electric vehicles can be left unattended for at least six months, however plugging in once a month is optimal. The battery management system is electronically controlled and uses very little energy.
A: Destination charging refers to charging stations that can be found at local shopping centres, hotels, gyms and other destinations you may visit for extended periods of time. Journey charging refers to charging stations at service stations or dedicated electric vehicle charging stations, which provide the maximum charge in the shortest time.
A: Yes. The Remote app, available for both iOS and Android, enables you to stop or start charging, manage departure times, pre-condition your vehicle, manage tariffs and set a maximum state of charge. The app also sends you notifications if the charge plug is unexpectedly removed or if charging has stopped due to lack of power.
A: Electric cars generate maximum torque from standstill, delivering impressive acceleration.
The battery’s location, between the two axles, also provides a lower centre of gravity and an even weight distribution for improved handling. And, without the need to package a big engine in the front, the wheels can be positioned nearer to the outermost corners of the vehicle enhancing stability and steering feel.
All of this enables a dynamic and responsive driving experience, which remains unmistakably Jaguar.
A: Electric motors consume energy to provide motion. When this motion is no longer required, for example when the vehicle is slowing, the braking force can be harnessed to reverse the action of the motor and generate electricity. The electricity generated can be fed back to the battery, extending the vehicle's range.
A: I-PACE has three driver modes that can automatically adapt the vehicle settings for comfort, dynamics or range preservation.
A: I-PACE, like all other Jaguar vehicles, is designed and engineered to meet the most stringent global safety standards.
Recognised safety test procedures, certification and approval all ensure that electric vehicles are safe in a crash situation.
A: I-PACE has a wading depth of 500mm and features safety systems designed to deal with a flood situation.
A: Yes. Electric vehicles are designed and tested to the same standards as conventional combustion engine vehicles.
A: Yes. Customers and bystanders are not exposed to any risk of electric shock.
A: Compared to a vehicle with an internal combustion engine, electric vehicles require less maintenance as they have fewer moving parts. In other words, there is less that can wear out.
A: We wouldn’t recommend towing the Jaguar I-PACE. In general terms, if you need to move or recover the vehicle, you must always use a transporter or a trailer specifically designed for that purpose. However, should you find yourself stuck in a particularly dangerous location and there’s no alternative, be sure to tow it for no more than 500 metres at a very slow speed.
A: Yes. I-PACE’s structure is designed to be just as rigid and structurally capable as a combustion engine vehicle. I-PACE has dedicated jacking positions as any conventional vehicle for changing tyres.
