Soft­ware up­date im­proves range of Jaguar I-pace

What Car? - - News -

JAGUAR HAS IN­TRO­DUCED soft­ware up­dates for its I-pace elec­tric car, with the aim of in­creas­ing the dis­tance it can go be­tween recharges, and What Car?’s Real Range test sug­gests these have in­deed made a dif­fer­ence.

The I-pace man­aged just 177 miles when we rst tested it, com­pared with 253 miles after the up­dates. How­ever, it should be noted that there were other vari­ables, in­clud­ing the sec­ond test us­ing the bat­tery’s pre-con­di­tion­ing func­tion and fea­tur­ing a car on smaller, lighter wheels.

Back in the Septem­ber is­sue of What Car?, when we pit­ted the I-pace against Tesla’s Model S, the Jaguar’s dis­ap­point­ing range was one of the main rea­sons it nished sec­ond.

That Septem­ber test con­tained an er­ror in the PCP quotes, with the price per month of the Model S in­clud­ing the gov­ern­ment grant for plug-in cars but the I-pace’s ex­clud­ing it.

I-pace re­turned a range of 177 miles in an ear­lier test
