so.. Wait for the 2020 version? I find it great they have a 90kWh at this price point, but the range isn't where the Model X is.
Although, I admit, the X75D is the one I'd be more likely to buy, so it may be moot.



I assume the new packs will help, but it sounds like they have a consumption problem, not a energy capacity problem...

The new battery purchase is not for the I-Pace, but for the new EV Saloon under development at Jaguar, this will hit the market in fall 2020, and the cylindrical cells are more desirable for their assembled pack height being 1"+ less then pouch cells which works better in a saloon. From the looks of things Jaguar is planning for 50K annual production...

BTW folks, the battery pack has very little to do with range, as 90KWh is 90KWh, no matter who makes the pack. Motors/ Inverter, and aerodynamics have more effect on range. Some folks have been spreading full on FUD about the I-Pace, but I have taken it on a long drive, and consumption is right in there for what it is... Wait for the EPA to blow aways all the BS FUD that has been going around... Later this month..

Correct, 90kWh is 90 regardless of the battery configuration, which it appears the iPace has a consumption not capacity problem (compared to the X). (we could also go into discharge/charge rates, etc, but this is just capacity).
I don't care what config the battery is, as long as it works. I was just hoping to be able to plan the purchase to get the 'best' one possible.


We still don't have official EPA on the ipace, do we..?

Not yet, from my test drive experience my bet is 250 Miles EPA... Will go further then a 90KWh X in the real world

Its going to be interesting to see how Tesla responds because at this rate they shouldn't be far off from offering a higher capacity battery.
A simple Google search turns up a lot of 120D speculation that holds weight. Just have to wait for a Tesla announcement at this point.

Yup, but people are stoopid. For the majority of drivers, 40kwh is probably plenty, especially if they can charge at work. Tons of people in the bay area with compliance EVs, happy as clams.

No point to higher capacity. Only weight and size reduction. With the super charger network, and most trips under 100 miles, you're just adding weight and cost to add capacity...
I agree but brands like Tesla have to do something while other brands catch up. Fortunately most owners I know can get away without charging at home. Some have strictly charged at supercharging stations since delivery!
