Efficiency / Range Improvements

Hey Team I-Pace, UK/EU forum is reporting an imminent (2019) update increasing efficiency, regen and range (fast-charge, later).
An optimized I-Pace could be a truly stellar car. Here's hoping JLR delivers.

Wow. This is big news. Those bullet points all make total sense, I'm glad the engineers were able to do all that.

Specifically, one of the bullets: I believe also based on some info through the grapevine, that the "Improved cell balancing strategy" reflects an initial poor design that caused some of us to experience bad batteries much before their time. I'm very happy that they may have fixed it. Should give those of us who will soon be buying (another) one some confidence that we may be ok with the batteries in the future. Actually, everybody should be happy about that, even those of us who have not had a bad battery.

The one other thing is timing for the various markets. This is being rolled out in Norway apparently? .. they're always first. I hope there isn't much of a delay for us here in the colonies.

I didn't see mention of the increase charge rate in the bullet points.

Good point. I guess they prioritized other things ... maybe next time I hope!

Looks like Audi has done some similar improvements to the etron. Unclear how much of this is offered to existing owners or if it is only for new builds.
