After the latest set of updates, the Jaguar I-PACE now offers a new, more intuitive EV-friendly infotainment system, faster three-phase AC home charging, and better features.
Jaguar has just announced a slew of updates for its debut EV, the I-PACE. While the updates come in the form of new or enhanced features, they are squarely focussed on improving the I-PACE's urban usability and cementing its reputation as a 'breakthrough' EV in terms of modern tech.
The I-PACE becomes the first Jaguar model to feature the marque's new Pivi Pro infotainment system. Armed with a quicker and more intuitive interface via a 12.3-inch HD touchscreen, Pivi Pro also offers enhanced EV-centric navigation that can show the availability of nearby charging stations, their costs, and the time required for charging (the feature remains market-dependent for now).
The I-PACE also gets faster-charging functionality, thanks to an 11kW onboard charger becoming part of the standard kit. The 11kW charger allows customers to maximise the benefit by using three-phase AC power supply (where available), which can provide about 53km of range in an hour. Consequently, the time for a full charge also drops down to 8.6 hours.
The list of upgrades does not end here. There's now an optional wireless phone charger available in the I-PACE, located just below the centre console. The charging pad is also fitted with a signal booster to ensure the best possible connectivity at all times during a drive. A 'Smartphone Pack', part of the standard kit, offers Apple CarPlay and simultaneous dual-phone Bluetooth pairing. There's also a dual-modem embedded eSIM in the car that comes with a complimentary 4G connection.
Further, the car's interior air ionisation now offers additional PM2.5 filtration. The cabin air filtration can even be put to work before sitting into the car. A new 3D surround-view camera and ClearSight rear-view digital mirror add to the I-PACE's improved ergonomics and everyday usability. Customers will also benefit from a few exterior updates on the I-PACE, such as an Atlas Chrome-finish grille, an enhanced paint palette, and a new range of 19-inch wheels.
