Jaguar I-PACE 2019 electric car owner review

Steve drives a Jaguar I-PACE 90kWh 2019.

This is Steve’s first electric car, he’s owned the Jaguar I-PACE from new and drives 10,000-15,000 miles annually. The current mileage of the car is between 30,000-40,000 miles and he achieves 200 miles from a full charge.

 

Why did you choose the Jaguar I-PACE?

Best driving EV I’ve tried.

Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this electric car

  • The ride and handling
  • great specification
  • the power!

 

Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this electric car

  • Bigger than most cars I’ve had previously although no bigger than other EVs.
  • the screen on my model is laggy presently
  • can’t think of a third negative!

 

Have you experienced any faults with the car? If so, what have they been?

The 12v battery went flat which takes out the whole car. Interesting, charging the drive battery also charges the 12v battery. The fault was fixed by Jaguar assist within 2 hour on my drive.

 

What are the standout technological features of the car?

It’s really well equipped. The adaptive cruise control and lane assist make long journeys on the motorways easy, getting to my destination feeling quite refreshed. In winter, the preconditioning of the car in the morning and heating the car before I get in it to go home is fab!

 

Surprise us! Tell us something people wouldn’t readily know about this electric car

With the air suspension this cat can swim through deep water! Almost as deep as a Land Rover or other specialist 4x4s.

 

What electric car(s) are you interested in next and why?

No plans to change this unless there is a step change in the range of EVs.

 

Home charging unit – outline both positive & negative elements 

I use an Andersen home charger – no negatives, hardly ever have to us public chargers.

Electricity supplier & tariff – outline both positive & negative elements

On a great fixed priced tariff (16p per kW) and have home solar.

 

What public charging networks would you recommend to others and why?

InstaVolt is one of the more reliable networks and easy to use but others are catching up.

 

Insurer – outline both positive & negative elements

Nothing to say really, same as any other car insurance.

 

Please itemise where you’re saving money (or not) owning & running a Jaguar I-PACE

A fill costs about £12 at home. This works out at about 200mpg in a car which does 0 to 60 mph in under 5 seconds.
