Facelifted Jaguar I-Pace now in Mzansi

All-electric performance SUV features a new infotainment system, three phase AC home charging and even more driver-focused technology.

The folks at Jaguar South Africa are presenting their updated fully-electric I-Pace SUV that now lurks a new infotainment system, improved driver assistance technologies and quick charging capabilities. 

Available for purchase in SA, the Jaguar I-Pace now comes fitted with the brand’s Pivi Pro infotainment system that incorporates a 12.3-inch high-definition virtual instrument cluster. 

There is also a 10-inch and a 5-inch upper and lower touchscreens as well as a multi-function haptic rotary controller. 

According to Jaguar, the flat menu structure makes navigating the system easier than before with frequently used features and functions accessible via the home screen with just a click.

The navigation uses self-learning algorithms to optimise routing, voice guidance even knows to remain quiet when you’re travelling through areas you know, and maps will always be up to date thanks to software-over-the-air (SOTA) functionality.

Available as an optional extra is the wireless device charging pad located beneath the floating console. All I-Pace models feature a smartphone pack with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.

Speaking of power, the refreshed Jaguar I-Pace is now fitted with a 11 kW onboard charger as standard, enabling customers with access to three-phase electricity supplies to enjoy significantly faster charging. When connected to an 11kW wall box,  53km of range (WLTP) per hour can be achieved, it takes 8.6 hours to get the battery fully charged.

Getting the refreshed Jaguar I-Pace recharged from a 7 kW single-phase supply can get the battery recharged up to 35 km per hour while a full charge will take 12.75 hours. 

A 60 kW charger will add 76 km in 15 min while the 100 kW charger will add up to 127 km.

The driving range is up to 470 km from the 90 kWh battery pack.

Changes on the outside include a new Atlas Grey grille tip finish that is complemented by a new Bright Pack option, available on all models in the I-Pace range.

The Bright Pack adds 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, and a refreshed paint palette now features colours such as Caldera Red, Portofino Blue and Eiger Grey.

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. 

The other feature includes a new 3D Surround Camera,

The I-Pace is offered with an 8 year or 160,000km battery warranty on top of the standard Jaguar Care plan which offers a 100,000km warranty and servicing within in 5 year period, whichever comes first.
