Sitting behind the wheel of a Jaguar is an experience unlike anything else. Its unique blend of power, beauty and suavity delivers a drive that captivates and sometimes… electrifies. The Jaguar I-Pace, the first all-electric Jaguar takes the uniqueness of a Jaguar to new levels. Since electric vehicles are still a relatively rare sight on our roads, here is everything you need to know about the Jaguar I-Pace.
The Jaguar I‑PACE has a range of 377km on one full charge, depending on your driving habits and road conditions. Thanks to next generation electric vehicle technology, the I-Pace delivers an impressive range with zero-tailpipe emissions while remaining unmistakably Jaguar.
The I-Pace has been named the most desirable premium electric vehicle in the world thanks to its unprecedented sweep at the 2019 World Car awards. In the 15-year history of the awards, the I-Pace is the first model to ever win three World Car titles: World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year, and World Green Car.
The I-Pace comes standard with a Home Charging Cable that can be used with any domestic socket. Can you imagine waking up every morning with a full tank of gas? With a plug of a cable, that is the new reality with the Jaguar I-Pace. Charging rates via a Home Charging Cable allow you to charge anywhere and they are sufficient to cover the average daily commute.
For optimum charging at home, you are recommended to purchase and install a Jaguar-approved Wall Box. The I-PACE is also equipped with a 7-kW single phase AC on-board charger, which, when fitted to a Wall Box, delivers up to 35 km of range per hour.
Once plugged in, the vehicle will automatically stop charging when it reaches full charge. The charging system is fully self-contained so it’s safe to charge the vehicle in the rain, or even when parked in snow.
The major centres in British Columbia has an extensive network of fast-charging stations which can be found here. However, for years Western Canada has lacked the infrastructure to maximize the advantages of driving an electric vehicle. That is, until recently! Restrictive is the last word that you should use when driving a Jaguar and thanks to innovative programs such as “Peaks to Prairies”, a network of fast electric vehicle charging stations is spreading across Western Canada.
A typical 50 kW DC rapid charger can charge your I-Pace from 0-80% charge in just 85minutes. Something to keep in mind is your electric vehicle will very rarely be charged from zero. In the time it takes to sit down and have a coffee, your I-Pace can be at full battery. Traveling with an electric vehicle does not need to affect your destination plans. Think of it as an excuse to make time for a snack! Pull up, plug in, then go enjoy yourself.
