First Jaguar to feature Pivi Pro infotainment system

The Jaguar I-Pace will receive updates to its infotainment system and a new faster charging system. 

The new Pivi Pro infotainment system has a self-learning navigation system that pin-points where the nearest available charge station is and will even tell the driver how much it will cost and how long it will take to charge. 

The I-Pace is now fitted with an 11kW on-board charger as standard, which reduces the charge time to enjoy significantly faster charging: when connected to an 11kW wall box that adds 53km of range. 

Charging from 0-100% takes only 8.6 hours. And the claimed total range is 470km. 

Jaguar says using 7kW wall boxes which charge up to 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, whilst a 100kW charger will add up to 127km over the same period.

The i-Pace's power remains the same at 294kW and 696Nm. It can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds and has up to 470km of range in a WLTP test, according to the carmaker. 

The updated model, already available in Europe and set to launch in South Africa before the end of the year, has a dual-modem embedded SIM, wireless device charging, embedded Spotify, and Bluetooth for two phones simultaneously. 

Also available now is a new 3D surround camera and 'ClearSight' rear-view digital mirror which turns the rear-view mirror into screen and one is able to get a feed from the camera. 

On the wellness side, there's the cabin air ionisation system than uses a PM2.5 filtration to filter out fine particles and allergens.

The I-Pace is always up to date thanks to over-the-air changes to the infotainment. The battery management and charging can be updated remotely.
