Jaguar I-Pace gains 20km of range via software update

10 December 2019

Being a software-only update, there are no physical changes to the I-Pace's 90kWh lithium-ion battery pack.

Jaguar has developed a range-boosting update for the I-Pace.

The update, Jaguar says, is based on more than 50 million miles of real-world trips, globally, and scrutinizes "every element of the vehicle's performance". Using that research, Jaguar has managed small refinements that incrementally improve how the vehicle runs and drives.

The complimentary update comes as a result of innovations made over the course of the I-Pace eTrophy - the world's first all-electric production based worldwide race series - with engineers optimising the management of battery, thermal and AWD systems to enhance efficiency of the all-electric powertrain.

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.

Jaguar said I-Pace owners can expect about 8 percent more range, equating to about 12 miles in the real world, though the vehicle's EPA-rated range will remain unchanged at 234 miles. With the new update, Jaguar says the battery can "run to a lower state of charge than previously without affecting drivability, durability, or performance".

All I-Paces are all-wheel-drive, and the update directly affects the car's traction system.

Range calculation: Changes to the predictive range calculation algorithm will deliver a more accurate and consistent estimate of vehicle range, while being more reflective of an individual's driving style.

Customers can contact their local Jaguar dealerships to arrange installation of the complimentary software upgrade.

After receiving the latest software, more electronic modules will be able to receive remote updates, providing ongoing enhancements to the customer experience.
