Jaguar says its electric I-PACE now smarter and faster charging

(June 10, 2021) MAHWAH, N.J. — The 2022 Jaguar I-PACE, the first all-electric performance SUV from a premium manufacturer, 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, I-PACE has won dozens of 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 vehicle that tore up the rule book to become the first and best electric car of its kind.

With a Jaguar-designed electric motor at each axle, producing exceptional combined performance of 394 hp and 512 lb-ft of torque, I-PACE offers a  balance of all-wheel drive performance, refinement, luxury, and day-to-day usability.

For the 2022 model year, I-PACE is available exclusively in top HSE trim, with a starting price of $71,050 including destination charge.

I-PACE now comes with an 11kW on-board charger as standard. Connecting to a 100-kW DC charger can replenish up to 63 miles of range in 15 minutes. I-PACE remains the all-electric performance SUV, thanks to its aluminum construction, low center of gravity and its 394hp dual-motor design, accelerating from 0 to 60 in just 4.5 seconds.

I-PACE now delivers even more technology to make living the electric life simpler and more rewarding than ever. At the heart of the interior of I-PACE is a the intuitive Pivi Pro infotainment system Pivi Pro offers simplified menu structures that allow drivers to access or view up to 90 percent of common tasks from the home screen in two taps or less, standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and the ability to connect two phones simultaneously via Bluetooth. As intuitive to use as a smartphone, Pivi Pro is fast and responsive with enhanced EV navigation that can show availa
ble charging stations and estimated charging time.  

Simplifying the process still further is the ability to automatically add charging stations to the route through Pivi Pro, as needed. The system will select the optimum chargers to minimize total journey time. On long drives, Pivi Pro can also display the predicted charge level on arrival at each waypoint.Maps remain up to date, thanks to software-over-the-air (SOTA) functionality.

The exterior design is enhanced with a new Atlas Grey grille tip finish. Complementing the Atlas Grey grille tip finish is the luxurious Bright Pack option, available on all models in the I-PACE range. The Bright Pack accentuates the breath-taking exterior 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 colors such as Aruba, Caldera Red, Portofino Blue and Eiger Grey.

For the 2022 model year, I-PACE is available in a single, well-equipped HSE trim. Newly standard are 16-way heated and Cooled Powered Windsor leather front seats, Premium LED headlights with Signature DRL and Auto High Beam Assist, powered tailgate, and 20" Style 5068 5-spoke Gloss Dark Grey wheels with Contrast Diamond Turned Finish.

State-of-the-art digital technology further assists drivers and road users. Visibility is significantly enhanced with an available 3D Surround Camera that provides a 360-degree digital plan view of the surrounding area and potential hazards, visible through the central touchscreen. The available ClearSight rear view mirror improves vision and convenience by helping ensure the driver has an unobstructed view of the road behind, even with three people in the rear seat or with the 51-cubic foot luggage compartment loaded fully. ClearSight uses a wide-angle, rear-facing camera linked to a high-resolution screen within the frameless glass mirror.

Neatly integrated within the roof-mounted antenna module, the high-definition camera works in 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.

The standard, 825-watt Meridian 3D Surround Sound System features two additional speakers in the cabin headliner, meaning the 16 speaker and one subwoofer arrangement delivers an exceptional experience for all occupants.

Further adding to the roster of standard technology equipment on the 2022 I-PACE are Adaptive Cruise Control with Steering Assist & Stop & Go, Head-up Display, Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Assist, Clear Exit Monitor, Driver Condition Monitor, Lane Keep Assist, and Traffic Sign Recognition with Adaptive Speed Limiter.
