The slightly revised Jaguar I-Pace, which was launched in Europe and the UK in June last year (2020), has finally been launched in North America. In addition to minor upgrades (the introduction of a new generation entertainment information system and fast charging technology), the 2022 Jaguar I-Pace is also available at a more competitive price in the US.
The 2022 Jaguar I-Pace has been replaced by a single HSE top-spec model, with the entry S and mid-range SE models removed from the US model range. To compensate for the reduced choice, mobil Jaguar has kindly reduced the price of the I-Pace HSE top-spec from US$80,900 (approx. NTD 2.26 million) to US$69,900 (approx. NTD 1.95 million), a one-off price reduction of over NTD 300,000, which is the same as the entry-level S model.
The 2022 I-Pace electric roadster is equipped with Jaguar’s new Pivi Pro entertainment information system. The system has a smartphone-like interface and comes with Andriod Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity as standard. The updated Entertainment Information System allows the New Year’s I-Pace to be updated over the internet, enhances satellite navigation, allows the driver to see charging points along the way, and displays predicted arrival charges at waypoints and destinations.
A new in-cabin air ionization system with PM2.5 filtration to capture ultra-fine airborne particles has been added to the cabin. Other standard features include the Meridian 3D Premium Surround Sound System, 360-degree Surround View and Jaguar’s ClearSight interior rear-view mirror, which switches the rear-view display via a hidden camera mounted on the roof so that the view is no longer blocked by rear-seat occupants or luggage, enhancing driving safety.
Another key feature of the revised Jaguar I-Pace is the change from a 7kW onboard charger to an 11kW system, which reduces the time to full charge from 12.6 hours to 8.6 hours for a zero-charge battery. With the 100-kW DC charger, the system is still capable of replenishing a maximum range of 63 miles (approximately 101 km) in 15 minutes.
Power remains the same as before the facelift, with the twin electric motors set up to deliver 394 hp and 70.79 kgm of peak torque, and a 0 to 96 km/h acceleration time of 4.6 seconds. In terms of maximum range, the 2022 I-Pace is also estimated to maintain 234 miles or approximately 376 kilometers.
