- New online calculator, simple-tariff public charging and Jaguar Go I-PACE app make owning electric I-PACE easier than ever
- Online calculator enables customers to easily see how different factors impact range and running costs
- Jaguar’s simple-tariff public charging service gives customers access to over 110,000 charge points across Europe
- Go I-PACE app data shows 85 per cent of I-PACE owners could cover their weekly mileage with a maximum of two charges
- Download the Go I-PACE app for free on iPhone or Android to see how the
all-electric model would fit into your life
The new online range calculator gives users greater insight into the effects that factors such as wheel size, temperature and other features have on the vehicle’s maximum range of 292 miles (WLTP).
Jaguar’s new simple-tariff public charging service gives owners access to more than 110,000 public plug-in points across Europe, with a single monthly bill using a PAYG model or fixed subscription fee.
By measuring daily use in any car, the Go I-PACE app, for iPhone or Android, allows would-be buyers to understand how the I-PACE would fit into their lives. The app calculates potential cost savings, how much battery would have been used per trip and the number of full charges that would be required to cover the cumulative distance driven, all by tracking individual user journey data via the location services on a smartphone.
By using these digital tools, existing and potential customers are able to see with great accuracy how an I-PACE could fit into life and gain a real insight into how the range of the vehicle is affected by different features. Add to this the simple-tariff charge across Europe, and it has never been simpler to own and run the Jaguar I-PACE.

Data captured by Jaguar’s Go I-PACE app has revealed that across Europe 85 per cent of owners could cover their weekly mileage with a maximum of just two full vehicle charges, with 54 per cent only needing to charge once every seven days.
More than 35,000 journeys logged by the intelligent smartphone app revealed that the average user clocked up to 216 miles per week, with an average journey measuring 8.4 miles. Plus, with a Jaguar-approved AC wall box (7kW) installed at home, drivers could achieve a zero to 80 per cent charge in just over 10 hours – ideal for overnight charging used by the majority of EV drivers.
When plugged in, I-PACE owners can even choose the time at which their vehicle begins charging in order to take advantage of cheaper energy tariffs.
The Go I-PACE app was designed to demonstrate how EV ownership can benefit drivers, particularly in understanding journey impact on range and how often they would need to plug in. Looking at the data we have had so far it is clear to see that not only is I-PACE ownership cost-effective, it is extremely convenient too.

The I-PACE also has a suite of smart range-optimising technologies including a battery pre-conditioning system which, when plugged in, automatically increases or lowers the temperature of the battery to maximise range before driving away.
The Jaguar I-PACE is available to order now, priced from £60,995 (including government incentives) at www.jaguar.com
