Jaguar Racing Program Unlocks Extra Range In I-Pace Crossovers

Jaguar I Pace- Times Square

Jaguar launched the I-Pace eTrophy racing series in 2018, and ever since, it's been collecting data on its battery electric crossover.

In addition to improved driving range, the software update also enables an improved over-the-air update system, meaning more in-car functionality can be upgraded without a trip to the dealership or service centre.

Jaguar has developed a range-boosting update for the I-Pace. This will allow the I-Pace to remotely receive software upgrades, much like a typical smartphone does.

Better aerodynamics are also achieved by a tweak of the thermal management controls which will allow vanes in the active radiator system to be close more often.

Battery Capacity: Updates allow the battery to run to a lower state of charge than previously without affecting driveability, durability or performance.


Stephen Boulter, I-Pace vehicle engineering manager, said: "The Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy has generated a huge amount of data for us to analyse and those marginal gains, derived from competition on the track, are now being applied to customers' cars to further enhance their driving experience".

Two other small changes are included, too. Using that research, Jaguar has managed small refinements that incrementally improve how the vehicle runs and drives. The evolution of the Corvette through generations five to seven is an example of a race program that led to successively better and better road cars, but today I've got an example of a racing program that's actually bringing improvements to cars that already belong to their owners. Not only does the edit increase the car's range, but the latest software will mean that more aspects of the vehicle will be able to receive remote, over-the-air updates.

Jaguar says it will charge in around 10 hours using a 7kW home wall box, or just 40 minutes using a high-power 100kW rapid charger.

Jaguar wants to lessen the range anxiety anyone might have with its sleek I-Pace all-electric SUV.
