Imag­ine know­ing ex­actly how the car on your wish list will per­form in ev­ery as­pect of your life­style, from cost-sav­ing to un­der­stand­ing ex­actly how much per­for­mance po­tion the morn­ing com­mute will re­quire. Well, for iPhone users this is at last pos­si­ble thanks to Jaguar’s GO I-Pace app. Us­ing a com­plex se­ries of al­go­rithms, the app can in­di­cate how much bat­tery life would be used for a spe­cific trip, as well as show how many times the bat­ter­ies would need recharg­ing in the cy­cle of an av­er­age week. It also fac­tors in elec­tric­ity costs as­so­ci­ated with charg­ing and com­pares that to the costs of burn­ing con­ven­tional fos­sil fu­els.
