Jaguar I Pace now smarter better connected and faster charging


The Jaguar I-Pace, the world’s first luxury electric SUV has a big battery but it can be slow to charge at your home.

The i-Pace has a 90kw/hr battery compared to the current 40kw/hr battery in a Nissan Leaf which is, of course, a smaller car.

Now with the latest i-pace they say that will a 3-phase system and a wall box you can charge the car in 8.5 hours. With a single-phase system and wall box it will take 12.75 hours.

In the past with a single phase and no wall box it could take nearly 50 hours.

There’s also self-learning navigation that can show you the nearest available charge station and wireless phone charging, embedded Spotify, and Bluetooth for two phones at the same time

And there is remote updating so the I-PACE can get improvements over time
