The Jaguar I-PACE is now available with a new Premium Black Pack option, which adds a Gloss Black finish to the grille, grille surround, side window surrounds, door mirror caps and rear badges, together with 22-inch split-spoke wheels finished in Gloss Black, a rear spoiler and air suspension. The I-PACE is also now available in Ostuni White metallic for the first time.
The I-PACE also becomes the first Jaguar to feature Amazon Alexa voice control, providing voice interaction with the Pivi Pro infotainment system’s features including navigation, media playback, phone calls, and compatible smart devices. Following its debut on I-PACE, all new Jaguars with Pivi Pro will come with Alexa.
Existing owners of I-PACE models with Pivi Pro are among more than 55,000 Jaguar customers to have been offered Alexa in a software-over-the-air update. Owners will be notified via a message displayed in their vehicle’s touchscreen.
Alexa even makes it possible to control compatible smart home features such as heating and lighting from an I-PACE.
Customers in the UK and US will also be able to control and check on their I-PACE wherever they are using the Jaguar Remote Skill on any Alexa-enabled device, such as asking for the vehicle’s range.
The I-PACE’s Preferred Charging Period feature enables customers to set a desired start and finish time for charging – helping them take advantage of the reduced rate electricity tariffs available in many markets. It can also let them set a specific state-of-charge they want the battery to reach – 80 per cent, for example.
With all-wheel drive and 696Nm of instant torque, the I-PACE can accelerate from 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds, it has an electric driving range of up to 292 miles, it can recharge up to 78 miles of range in 15 minutes, and is available from £65,620 in the UK.
