An updated Jaguar I-Pace offering a new infotainment system, improved driver assistance technologies and quicker charging capabilities is now available in South Africa.


Pivi Pro now standard

A new Pivi Pro infotainment system features a 12.3-inch high-definition virtual instrument cluster together with 10-inch and 5-inch upper and lower touchscreens and multi-function haptic rotary controllers. Inspired by smartphones, Pivi Pro is easy to use.

Its flat menu structure makes navigating the system easier than before with frequently used features and functions accessible via the home screen and a single click. The redesigned navigation system reduces the number of steps required to set a destination by half and customers are now able to pan and zoom in and out of the map with a pinch of the fingers, just as with a smartphone.

The I-Pace is now also available with an optional wireless device-charging pad beneath the floating centre console, which includes signal boosting.


Shorter charging times

The I-Pace will now be sold with an 11kW on-board charger as standard, enabling customers with access to a three-phase electricity supply to enjoy significantly faster charging. When connected to an 11kW wall box 53km of range per hour can be achieved, while a full charge from empty now takes only 8.6 hours, ideal for overnight charging at home.

South African customers with access to single-phase supply using 7kW wall boxes can expect to gain 35km per hour, with a full charge taking 12.75 hours. When charging on the go, a 60kW charger will add up to 76km in 15 minutes, while a 100kW charger will add up to 127km over the same period.


Increased driver assistance

Visibility is significantly enhanced thanks to a new 3D Surround Camera that provides a 360-degree digital plan view of the surrounding area and potential hazards.

The ClearSight rear view mirror improves vision and convenience by ensuring that the driver always has an unobstructed view of the road behind. ClearSight uses a wide-angle, rear-facing camera linked to a high-resolution screen within the frameless glass mirror.

Cabin air ionisation designed to remove allergens, also features a filtration system, which captures ultrafine particles, to improve occupant health and wellbeing.


Enhanced customer choice

A new Atlas Grey grille tip finish is complimented by a new Bright Pack option, available on all models in the I-Pace range. The Bright Pack accentuates I-Pace’s design with a Noble Chrome grille surround, Atlas Grey door mirror caps and rear diffuser as well as Satin Chrome window surrounds.

The contemporary Black Pack option enhances the I-Pace with gloss black rear badges and a refreshed paint palette, which now includes Caldera Red, Portofini Blue and Eiger Grey.

Inside, customers can now benefit from the option of an enhanced Meridian 3D Surround Sound system with Trifield technology. The 16 speaker and one subwoofer arrangement delivers an exceptional experience for all occupants thanks to the addition of two additional speakers in the cabin headliner.


Going electric

With a range of up to 470km from its 90kWh battery, customers with an average daily commute would only need to charge their I-Pace once a week. A range calculation tool on www.jaguar.co.za makes it easy to see how factors such as vehicle speed, ambient temperature and climate control settings can influence the real-world range you would expect to achieve.
