EVSE - Home "Charging"
It would seem that it is 4 months until the Production I-Pace is revealed (though we can glean a lot from the eTrophy) and perhaps (fingers crossed) 12 months until deliveries begin - now just might be the time to start a conversation about - Home Charging.
Electric Vehicle Service Equipment (EVSE) or Level 2 "Chargers" is what you will need to Google to discover what you will need. What I have discovered is that the charger is actual part of the vehicle and the EVSE is what provides the AC power to the car. Curiously all EVSEs are not created equal, as some require and thus provide more power to the car than others; and some can communicate with the vehicle, and you, more effectively than others. I think most of us will be wanting to "fuel" our cars at home and we will need to install this equipment as a simple wall plug will soon prove to be unsatisfactory. Initial investigations have revealed units that can provide 6.6 kW/hr up to 15.4 kW/hr (Teslas have even higher) and needless to say as the charge rate becomes quicker, the cost of equipment and installation increases, as does the heat subjected to the batteries (not a good thing).
I imagine that I am not alone when it comes to being a neophyte with regards to what I have to do once I get my I-Pace home and we will all have some prep work to do (for us first time EV owners). Jaguar will have training sessions to be sure and I am hoping that they will have a EVSE with some solid capabilities (for the purists) though many non-automotive brands are well respected; with very positive reviews. If you are just getting started checkout EVObsession's website regarding "Electric Car Charging 101" (North American Bias) it seems like a good start.
