Hey everyone. Been lurking for awhile but have decided to join up. I'm still on the fence about buying my first EV, but the I-Pace is looking to put most of my concerns to rest. Just out of curiosity what is the average range that you guys are seeing on a full charge? Recommended home stations?

The average range seems to be a hard number to pinpoint from what I have read.
Once people start receiving and driving we should have a better idea.
My local dealer had a ChargePoint demo unit in the showroom for display.
Also had 2 chargers in front of the showroom.

the EPA numbers still don't exist. Cold cuts EV range drastically. and I don't think anyone in the USA has taken delivery yet to get real world on it...


But don't let that scare you. I loved my Model S, and my wife's Model 3 is AHHMAZING. Did you see the version 9 firmware that hit this week? Autolane change! This is nuts.


I dig the ipace, and in a bubble it's great, but I think I love tech too much to abandon Tesla. That and Hey Jaguar... Show me the Super Chargers! Show Me the Super Chargers.

That other company... Elio? Or what's the name just announced that via the deiselgate settlement they will be getting chargers.
Ohh it's Lucid.

As for going EV. It's awesome. Every day you start with a full go and the acceleration is so much fun.

You will probably want 30 amp or 32 amp rated and needs a 40 amp 240 volt circuit for power. You can go larger but will not be utilized by I-Pace. Smaller is rating is OK although it will extend the time to charge.

Basic I recommend ClipperCreek. Light and flexible cord. They all have a pigtail so not a perfectly clean look if that is what you are after.

Leviton is good. Chargepoint has a bunch of connected features if you are into that.

Basically they all work fine. Be sure you get a 25' cord if needed... some just have 18'.

The i-Pace I saw in Newport Beach, Calif, had an included EVSE that would accept NEMA 14-50. So it's probably Level 2, or over 6kW charging.
I'd install a NEMA 14-50 outlet where you think you'll park. All kinds of L2 chargers are available with 14-50 plugs. I would not buy another hardwired EVSE. I have a Bosch, a Clipper Creek, and a Juicebox. Only my Juicebox is 14-50 (40a).
Then you can recharge at RV campgrounds that have hookups.

I apologize if this is a 'dumb' question; however given there is apparently a serious lack of fast chargers in my area, am I understanding you correctly that I can buy a 'portable' charger and just need to find a suitable 240V outlet to plug it into giving me a 'mobile' fast charging station?

What do campgrounds charge you to plug in to their system?

Thank you.

I know that a charge cable(s) comes with the I-Pace, but
does anyone know what specific cable/charger in included with the
vehicle? (US)

If it helps, this is from the Jaguar I-Pace manual.
“Make sure that the AC charging cable meets standard SAE J1772”

Myself, I originally purchased the Juicebox, but then when Jaguar came out with there recommendations I purchased the ChargePoint hard wired charger.

Is there any reason why the Juicebox wouldn't work as well as the ChargePoint?

I wouldn’t think there would be an issue. Just wanted to stay compliant with the recommended charger by Jaguar.

Thank you. I am just learning about this EV 'stuff' as I had never considered purchasing one until I saw the I Pace. I live in the upper Midwest, the area of the country that has an extremely limited public charging network. Based on the recent comments in this thread, I'm thinking it would be beneficial to have a somewhat portable solution such as the JuiceBox?

I am trying to get an answer today in regards to a charger.
If you want a plug-in charger, ChargePoint uses a Nema 6-50 plug, while Juicebox is 14-50.
6-50 is 3 wires while 14-50 4 wires.
So it seems odd to supply a 14-50 compatible cable, while the dealer suggesting using a ChargePoint charger that uses a different plug-in standard. :|

We have currently have a NEMA 6-50 outlet we are using for the Audi supplied charger for the A3 e-tron (same as Porsche). NEMA 6-50 is what the portable Chargepoint charger uses (there is a hardwired version, too). The Jaguar supplied charger uses NEMA 14-50 (the same as Tesla, I am told). There is a 6-50 to 14-50 adapter that you can purchase from hardware store (HomeDepot) or from Amazon.

glad to see there's some streamlining going on because regardless of which car makers come to market this year, next year, 3 years from now, 5 years from now or 10 years from now, they need to work together.

Thanks for all the replies guys and the wealth of helpful information. I have heard good things about Leviton systems, just wasn't sure if Jaguar was supportive of using third party chargers.
