I-Pace bahn-storming at max speed


Bjorn Nyland tries out the I-Pace on the Autobahn, as fast as it'll go

Ah no way, my old haunts, A7 Hamburg-Flensburg!
It's worth watching IMO, pretty entertaining.
Take-homes: great performance, insane consumption, super quiet cabin at high speeds, 'nimble' in the parking lot

Oh yeah, the other take-home: "The regen is strong with this one"
Clearly there's some Jedi power in there

How high was the insane consumption? I'm guessing you mean insanely bad, right? Surprisingly low distance per kWh at high speeds?

Well not surprising. Wind resistance at 120mph is four times that at 60mph.

He starts with an estimated range of 248km, drives 40km, at which point the estimated range is down to 127km.

I don't know how Jaguar calculates the remaining range, but his instrument gauge shows an average consumption of 60kWh per 100km. That'll get you roughly 90 miles on a full charge at those speeds, haha!

Looks like around 640Wh/km, aka 1030Wh/mile, at 200km/h

Looking at the same guy's Model X bahn-storm, X is about 980Wh/mile.

Speed and consumption in both videos is variable due to traffic, so it's not a scientific comparison

And of course, the X's speed is constrained by over-heating by the end of its video.

I also noticed when comparing Bjorn's I-Pace run to the earlier Model X run, he accelerated the I-Pace using wide open throttle each time, where in the Model X he was much more gentle, he also slowed the I-Pace several times using heavy regen followed by full throttle accelerations (Obviously trying to overheat the I-Pace which he failed to do) each of those regen - accelerations wasted a large percentage of the energy (reflected in the overall consumption trip)... Just speculation on my part, but the I-Pace is probably more efficient at a steady 200km/h then Bjorn's, Model X, and it is a quieter, more comfortable, and better handling to boot.

Ok rather than starting a new thread, here's the larger road trip that the night drive was part of.

Some screenshots folks may find interesting re: consumption/speed etc
The last leg was with significant headwind

Not exactly an economy car... depending on driving style and conditions.
Tesla S seems to be EPA rated under 400 Wh/mi.
