It seems like Jaguar NL now have confirmed that a range update will come via SOTA in the near future.
They call it MEGA RANGE UPDATE

If so, that would be extra cool. Tesla did the same thing, they updated the range with software.

What does that do to battery life?

Better economy per kWh should mean less recharging hours. So it should improve.

Or if they give a "range" mode that uses more of the battery SOC range but allowed turning it on and off it would be only used as needed. It probably is a combination of improvements and hopefully some settings like "standard," "max range" and "maximum life."

Don't hold your breath for JLR to do anything like this. Tesla is known for rolling out impressive OTA software updates for their Tesla drivers, but so far, JLR hasn't even allowed us I-Pace drivers to utilize the supposed OTA software updates here in the US. I doubt they will make any such serious improvements like an improved battery efficiency/range with software updates. I've grown to be very skeptical of JLR based on my experiences with how they do things. Sorry.

@sflgator : with your experience it is completely understandable. But I do hope you are wrong, only for selfish reasons.

But if they did then I would be pleasantly surprised and know they are taking this whole thing seriously. In my mind they have a slight lead right now in this market segment. IF they rolled out impressive updates like this and fixed their infotainment system it would tell me they are serious and are putting resources behind it.

A boy can dream, can't he?

See my other post on the battery fault thread. My very recent update to the PCM has greatly improved the range. I suspect this is mostly the regen recall update, but could also be addressing the phantom battery fault that shut down everything. I went from a range of 201 mi that dropped to the 180's, but now it is showing a range of 261 miles. It looks like my average efficiency is about 2.8 mi/kwhr now, whereas before it was below 2 most days. Again, I believe this has to do with the regenerative braking update.

If you do a forced range estimator "reset" by depressing hard on BOTH the brake & the accelerator pedals for about 15 sec. while the car is in the ON position (without actually turning on the vehicle to drive it), the range estimator will go from whatever to like 260 mi. +...but you will NEVER actually get that kind of range with the I-Pace currently.

2.8 miles/kWh gives you a range of just over 230 miles

It's less efficiency, I'm guessing its more accurate data and reducing the size of the battery buffer. IIRC the I-Pace's buffer is nearly double what Tesla does? A lot of Tesla's recent OTA updates this year have been more sizzle than steak. Releasing faster charging, only for it to not be really any faster than what they had before, etc. But they were able to market a higher top end speed which got them the press they wanted, even when it appears they countered that by more aggressively stepping down the curve.
