I didn't see any change in range noted in the Jaguar announcement.
"I-PACE’s 90kWh Lithium-ion battery delivers a range of up to 470km/292mile range (WLTP)3. When charging using the fast-growing network of public chargers, a 100kW DC charger can add up to 127km/78 miles of range (WLTP) in just 15 minutes. Customers with three-phase electricity and an 11kW home wall box can add up to 53km/33 miles of range (WLTP) per hour; a full charge takes only 8.6 hours. Customers in single-phase markets using 7kW wall boxes can achieve up to 35km/22 miles of charge per hour and a full charge in 12.75 hours."

The front panel just gets referenced as a "distinctive" design element. Well, distinctive from previous model years, but I see it as just a "me too" design matching Mach-E, Bolt, etc.

The air channel is still there at the top of the front panel. It just isn't as prominent due to the shape of the flat panel.

One would not put the air channel below the flat panel. The air there would just run into the heat exchanger and be uncontrolled or just hit a "blank wall". It wouldn't be aerodynamic to take a 90 degree turn up then another 90 degree turn aft to flow the bonnet channel.

The air flow for the heat exchanger is in the smaller grille area below the large one. The active vanes are behind it to control flow of air through the heat exchanger.
