Jaguar I-Pace Now Smarter, Better Connected And Faster-Charging

0

Whitley, UK: The Jaguar IPACE – the world’s first premium all-electric performance SUV – now offers a new fast, intuitive infotainment system and quicker charging capability, making owning and driving an electric vehicle easier than ever.

Since its debut, the I-PACE has won more than 80 global awards, including 2019 World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year and World Green Car, reinforcing its status as the Jaguar which tore up the rule book to become the first and best electric car of its kind.

With two Jaguar-designed electric motors at each axle, producing exceptional combined performance of 400PS and 696Nm, aluminium construction and a low centre of gravity, the
I-PACE offers an unrivalled balance of all-wheel drive performance, refinement, luxury and
agility – together with outstanding real-world range and day-to-day usability.

The Jaguar I-PACE now delivers even more technology to make living the electric life simpler and more rewarding than ever. This is the first Jaguar to feature the new Pivi Pro infotainment system.

As intuitive to use as a smartphone, Pivi Pro is fast and responsive with enhanced EV navigation that can show you if nearby charging stations are available or in use, what
they cost, and how long it will take to charge (market-dependent).

I-PACE now comes with an 11kW on-board charger as standard, enabling customers with access to three-phase electricity supplies to enjoy significantly faster charging7km/78 miles over the same period.

With a focus on air quality, occupant well-being is prioritised, with cabin air ionisation featuring PM2.5 filtration to capture ultrafine airborne particles and allergens. The I-PACE can filter its cabin air before a journey begins.

The exterior design is enhanced with a new Atlas Grey grille tip finish and customers benefit from an enhanced paint palette, a new range of wheels, and a luxurious new Bright Pack option, available on all models in the I-PACE range.

Alan Volkaerts, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar I-PACE, said: “When we developed the I-PACE
we wanted it to be the world’s most desirable electric vehicle and to show what happens when Jaguar goes electric. I think we’ve achieved those ambitious goals, and now we’ve made it even better with a new infotainment system, three-phase charging and technology that benefits driver and passengers alike.

The new Pivi Pro infotainment system is a highlight of the IPACE’s spacious, luxurious interior. The 12.3-inch high-definition virtual instrument cluster, 10-inch and 5-inch upper and lower touchscreens** and multi-function, haptic rotary controllers are matched
to crisp, clean, contemporary graphics for an engaging, intuitive user experience.

Inspired by smartphones, Pivi Pro is easy to use, while its powerful processor and ‘fast start-up’ ensures the system is ready to go by the time you’re in the driving seat.

Supported by a built-in back-up battery, navigation initialisation takes just a few seconds.

The 12.3-inch HD instrument cluster now features completely revised graphics to give an even clearer indication of battery state of charge, while changes to the predictive range calculation algorithm deliver a more accurate and consistent estimate of vehicle range, and are more reflective of an individual’s driving style.

Customers need no longer be concerned about data usage or buying a SIM, as the I-PACE
comes with a dual modem embedded SIM (eSIM) and complimentary 4G data plan which enables unlimited music streaming via Spotify, Deezer or Tunin and map, weather, calendar and traffic updates simultaneously.

Stephen Boulter, Vehicle Engineering Manager, Jaguar I-PACE, said: “The Pivi Pro infotainment system makes it easy to use public charging networks. As well as showing where charging stations are it can also tell you if they’re available, what they cost to use,
and an estimate of charging time.

We know that most customers charge their I-PACE at home but we wanted to make charging on the go just as simple – and our new infotainment system makes that possible.”

The I-PACE has been designed to keep you and your family safe, and was awarded the maximum five-star EuroNCAP rating.

State-of-the-art digital technology further assists drivers and road users. Visibility is significantly enhanced with a new 3D Surround Camera that provides a 360-degree digital plan view of the surrounding area and potential hazards, visible through the central touchscreen.

Inside the cabin, the ClearSight rear-view mirror improves vision and convenience by ensuring the driver always has an unobstructed view of the road behind, even with three people in the rear seat or with the 656-litre luggage compartment loaded up to the roof.

Neatly integrated within the roof-mounted antenna module, the high-definition camera works in all conditions, including low ambient light, while a protective lip and hydrophobic coating help to repel water and ensure the camera lens remains as clean as possible.

All occupants benefit from the enhanced climate control system, which delivers smart, energy-efficient heating or cooling of up to four zones independently. Complementing the new Atlas Grey grille tip finish is the luxurious new Bright Pack option, available on all models in the I-PACE range.

The Bright Pack accentuates I-PACE’s breath-taking design with a Noble Chrome grille
surround, Atlas Grey door mirror caps, Satin Chrome window surrounds and Atlas Grey for the rear diffuser.

The contemporary Black Pack option is enhanced with the application of the gloss black finish to the rear badges. A refreshed paint palette now features colours such as Caldera
Red, Portofino Blue and Eiger Grey. There’s also a wider choice of wheels, with a new 19-inch design being offered for the first time on I-PACE, and replacing 18-inch wheels as standard equipment on S models in select markets.

Inside, customers can now benefit from the option of an enhanced Meridian 3D Surround Sound System with TrifieldTM technology. The system features two additional speakers in the cabin headliner, meaning the 16 speakers and one subwoofer arrangement delivers
an exceptional experience for all occupants.

The Jaguar I-PACE has been designed to ensure every step of the customer journey delivers peace of mind and makes owning an electric car as easy as possible.
