Software update improves range of Jaguar I-pace
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
