And Now There’s Even More Features for 2021 that Make this Jaguar Luxury EV Even Better!
The Jaguar I-PACE has already become the stuff of legends in the past few years, winning three major international car awards, including World Car of the Year.
Now there’s even more to admire about this top Luxury EV thanks to a bevy of new features for 2021.
For one, charging just got better and faster. All 2021 models of the I-PACE gain a new 11-kW onboard charger. (The older charger 7-kW). Connected to a 240-volt source new new charger will lower the charge time for a depleted battery from 12.6 hours to 8.6 hours, according to Jaguar. A 100-kw charger will add up to 78 miles over the same time.
Also new for 2021, the I-PACE SUV now has a complimentary 4G data plan, a 360-degree camera system, and wireless charging.
Inside, there’s a new infotainment system that’s even easier to operate and includes a feature that tells you where the nearest charging stations are, how much it will cost and how long it should take to charge the battery.
The I-PACE’s 90kWh battery warranty covers 8 years or 100,000 miles – whichever comes first. It is redeemable in the case of any manufacturing defect or should a certified Jaguar Retailer test it and find that the battery has dropped below a 70 percent State of Health.
The I-PACE’s motor is very different from an internal combustion-engine. Instead of a gasoline or diesel engine, it features two lightweight and compact Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motors. Both motors are up to 97 percent efficient when transferring power from the battery to the motor. By comparison, an internal combustion engine is typically only 30-40 percent efficient when producing power from fossil fuels.
The engines were developed by Jaguar engineers who built upon knowledge collected from their experience producing Jaguar I-TYPE Formula E racing car.
To deliver maximum power in the smallest possible footprint, the two Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motors are axle-mounted and use concentric single speed transmissions. The motors are also positioned lower in the vehicle, contributing to
the low center of gravity and enhancing I-PACE’s control, handling and agility, according to Jaguar.
I-PACE’s electric motors are quieter and create fewer vibrations than conventional internal combustion engines – with none of the interruptions normally associated with gear changes, the automaker notes. They provide superior operating efficiency, torque delivery and respond immediately to your demands.
Positioned as low as possible and right between the axles, I-PACE’s 90kWh battery is constructed of high energy density lithium-ion pouch cells. It’s designed for longevity and supports protracted periods of sustained maximum power.
And each year, the cost of owning an I-PACE gets lower and lower. That’s partly because electricity costs less than petrol or diesel. You’ll get significant tax incentives too, including – if you live the Golden State – the California Clean Fuel Reward, which saves you $1,500 on your EV purchase.
And with no charges relating to congestion, emissions or parking in many cities, the benefits keep growing in 2021.
If you opt for the mid-level Jaguar I-PACE SE in 2021 you gain 20-inch wheels, ultra bright LED headlights, a powered liftgate, and leather upholstery. The SE gives you upgraded driver assists, including adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring.
Additionally, charging is getting much easier in 2021. With the majority of electric car charging done from home, you can more efficiently plan your time around the things you want to do. Simply recharge on an evening, and by morning you’ll be ready to go.
With the 2021 I-PACE you also enjoy:
ZERO TAILPIPE EMISSIONS
Vehicles powered solely by a battery are able to achieve maximum power with zero tailpipe emissions. And with more renewable resources added to the National Grid all the time, electric car energy gets cleaner every year.
A DISTINCTIVE DRIVE
Electric technology is not only incredibly quiet, it’s able to deliver instant acceleration with no lag and no gearshift interruptions. This means a distinctively smooth and responsive driving experience at all speeds.
VARYING CHARGING SPEEDS AT HOME
- 7kW AC home chargers will charge overnight from 12.75 hours. Or up to 35km (22 miles) of range from 60 minutes
- Domestic sockets will charge from 48 hours. Or up to 8km (5 miles) of range from 60 minutes.
So What Factors Affect the Distance You Can Crive on the I-PACE?
According to Jaguar, in an all-electric car, your battery is the single source of energy. As a result, your driving style, the features you use in your cabin, and even the conditions you drive in will influence your overall range.
And you will save money. Lower running costs, cheaper electricity rates compared to petrol and diesel, and significant tax incentives are just some of the ways that the move to all-electric can save you money every year, according to Jaguar.
And the Jaguar I-PACE is covered by a comprehensive battery warranty of up to 8 years or 160,000km (100,000 miles) – whichever comes first.
Your 2021 I-Pace seats five people in two rows in a cabin that is spacious and comfortable for most people. The contoured seats provide good support, both in the front and the back. The seats are mounted low, which limits knee room for long-limbed passengers hinders outward visibility for the driver.
When it comes to cargo space, packing for longer trips is not a problem. The I-Pace has 25.3 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats, which expands to 51 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. There are several handy in-cabin storage spaces, including a deep center console separating the front seats. Under the hood, there’s even a tiny compartment with just enough space for a small bag.
Each Jaguar I-Pace comes with a ton of safety features, including automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, parking sensors all around the vehicle, a rearview camera, rear cross traffic alert, lane keep assist, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a driver condition monitor, and traffic sign recognition, among other things.
Do you get nervous when parallel parking in a tight spot? No problem. Park assist, which is standard, controls the steering to expertly navigate the I-Pace into a parallel or perpendicular parking space. You also have a clear exit monitor that alerts back-seat passengers to approaching obstacles, such as a bicyclist, before they open the door. Optional features include blind spot monitoring, high-speed automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, a surround-view parking camera system, and adaptive cruise control with steering assist.
Like last year’s models, the 2021 Jaguar I-Pace comes in three trim levels: S, SE, and HSE. And you can also add optional features to your new I-Pace S without having to pay the whole price for a new trim. With the I-Pace S you get synthetic leather upholstery, eight-way power-adjustable front seats, a fixed panoramic sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, and push-button start. The S also comes with a dual-screen infotainment system that features a 12.3-inch adaptive driver display, smartphone integration, a Meridian sound system, satellite radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth, six USB ports, three 12-volt outlets, navigation, and a Wi-Fi hot spot.
Bump up to the I-Pace SE trim for options like the power liftgate and 10-way power-adjustable front seats with memory settings and genuine leather upholstery. Blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, and high-speed automatic emergency braking are also part of the SE.
The even-more-premiere HSE trim provides extra cabin comfort with genuine leather upholstery, heated and cooled front sports seats, heated rear seats, 18-way power-adjustable front seats, a hands-free liftgate, and a 15-speaker Meridian stereo. HSE also adds a surround-view parking camera system and many other features.
The Jaguar all-electric I-PACE doesn’t disappoint when it comes to luxury or adrenaline-pumping driving thrills. If you are looking for strong power output, impressive all-electric range and a bevy of standard this may very well be the car of your dreams. With a starting price of roughly $70,000 there are few electric cars that can match its all-electric power, driving dynamics and numerous features. So come in and drive one today!
