Jaguar I-PACE Update Adds Extra Range
Jaguar has upgraded its I-PACE model to introduce free software updates that promise to improve and stabilise battery performance and also increase the range by as much as 12 miles following a full charge. These updates have been made possible after the knowledge gained during the I-PACE eTrophy Race series.
What Updates Can You Expect?
Updates to the Jaguar I-PACE include the aforementioned free software updates. However, these are not the only improvements electric car drivers can look forward to in the New Year.
Other updates and improvements include alterations to the car’s all-wheel-drive system. Jaguar has achieved this by altering the torque distribution targeting both front and rear motors. It’s believed that such revisions deliver increased efficiency when driving the I-PACE in Eco mode.
The good times do not stop there, though. It has also been revealed there are improvements to the thermal management system, with active radiator vanes now being closed more often and as a result improving the aerodynamics of the vehicle.
Jaguar has also collected and analysed data from over 500 million miles of journeys. After interpreting this data, it has improved the regenerative braking functions and also provided increased range calculations which will better reflect the driving style of the person behind the wheel.
With increased mileage, you can get more distance from a single charge. Unlike most cars, which depreciate in value as soon as they leave the retailer, the opportunity for software updates can help the vehicle maintain its value as it adapts to the times and keeps on improving long after the initial purchase.
How Can This Benefit You?
Many I-PACE owners may feel concerned initially, especially if they have not previously considered the previous software to have substantial issues.
This is not the case, though, and even if drivers are not on board with the updates entirely right now, this opinion is almost sure to change once they get back onto the road.
The increased mileage range, up by 12 miles compared to before the update, helps you travel further on a single charge, and while 12 may not seem like a lot when merely looking at the number, but those extra miles could prove highly beneficial in some instances.
How to Get These Updates?
If you are a Jaguar I-PACE owner hoping to upgrade your car to the latest software, Jaguar is inviting owners to visit retailers to obtain their free update. However, if your model possesses a higher number of electronic modules, you may be able to receive the updates remotely.
The Jaguar I-PACE comes complete with an anti-lock braking system, electronic power steering, and a trip computer to make it one of the most user-friendly and intuitive electric cars on the market. Other features include built-in Bluetooth for seamless connectivity with your devices. At the same time, the Follow-Me-Home lights, automatic headlamp levelling, and Dynamic Stability Control offer safety and peace of mind when driving home in the dark on unstable road surfaces.
