2020 Jaguar I-Pace brings faster charging and upgraded technology

Refreshed Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV priced from £65,195

  • 11kW charger now standard
  • 292 miles of range promised
  • Small styling changes

The Jaguar I-Pace SUV has been given a mid-life refresh, to keep it competitive against rivals like the Tesla Model X, Audi e-tron and Mercedes EQC. The updates include an array of new technology, faster charging and a few subtle styling upgrades. The car is available to order now, with prices starting at £65,195.

Inside, there’s a new Pivi Pro infotainment system - which we’ve previously seen on the Land Rover Defender - with the ability to connect to two Bluetooth-equipped smartphones at the same time. Wireless phone charging with signal boosting is also offered, while the sat nav system learns your frequent routes and uses online data to find local charging stations, while even telling you how much they cost. Jaguar says the updated sat nav is more user friendly as well, with a simplified menu system making it quicker and easier to use.

Like many Jaguar Land Rover models, the I-Pace can now be specified with a ClearSight digital rear-view mirror. Using the rear-mounted camera, you get a clear view of what’s behind you, which is handy for when passengers or bulky cargo obscures the view. A 3D surround camera system is also now standard.

Jaguar has also introduced an upgraded air filtration system with an ioniser, which is said to capture ultra-fine particles and allergens. The system can filter the cabin air while the car is charging, ensuring it’s ready for when you get in.

A set of 19-inch alloy wheels replace the standard 18s on the entry-level model, while extra paint colours are available. There’s a new ‘Bright Pack’ option with a handful of chrome and grey trim pieces, and another option package that adds black contrasting trim.

What does it mean for car buyers?

These new features have pushed the starting price up by £600, but we can’t imagine that’d be a stumbling block for many I-Pace owners with a starting price of around £65,000. The standard-fit 11kW charging is a great addition, as it reduces the battery recharge time from nearly 13 hours to just over 8.5 hours, while the extra technology is welcome too. Jaguar’s latest updates to its first electric car look to be good value, so we’d recommend ordering one of these updated models if you’re after a new I-Pace.
