Jaguar updates the I-Pace for the 2021 model year.
Innovations include more intuitive software for the infotainment system, dubbed Pivi Pro, the same as on the Land Rover Defender. It lets easily find available chargers, informs of their cost and estimates a charging time. Moreover, Pivi Pro reduces the number of steps to access navigation.
Besides, the company has upgraded the onboard charger from 7 to 11 kW. This allows quicker overnight home charging from an AC wallbox. Now the battery is fully charged in 8.6 hours versus previous 12.6 hours.
In addition, the 2021 I-Pace has got a new aesthetic Bright Pack including chrome details, Atlas Gray door mirror caps and rear diffuser.
Other tech updates include an optional wireless device charger and a new camera system.
The on-sale date and U.S. pricing will follow.
The current 2020 Jaguar I-Pace costs between $69,850-80,900. Few competitors can match its driving dynamics and a long list of standard features. The model can boast a solid power output, a good all-electric range, a roomy and very comfortable cabin.
Among the drawbacks of the 2020 I-Pace, experts of U.S.News & World Report mention a slow response of the infotainment system, and a fast diminishment of the driving range under hard acceleration.
