Just got my new 2020 delivered on Fathers Day and got my Charge Point charger installed on Monday, so yesterday was the first chance I got to fully charge the beast; however, I noticed that at 100% charged capacity I only have 201 effective range miles available.......WHY SO LOW?

The estimated range is just that, an estimate based upon how the car was driven prior to charge. You can reset it and then let it learn your driving style. Is this your first BEV? Just like in a gas car, if you are driving it hard your MPG will drop. If your gas car had a range estimator, it would estimate your range based upon consumption rate.


If you are driving a lot of freeway at 80+ MPH, the Guess o meter will assume this is your normal driving style and set an estimated maximum somewhere between 200miles and 220 miles. Much depending upon terrain, temperature, speed, etc.

If you tend to drive a more mixed route and see average speeds in the 45 to 55mph range, you'll likely get an estimate above 220miles.


You might want to rest the Guess O Meter and let it learn your style. After the reset, a full charge will show above 234 miles. After that, it'll adjust based upon behavior.


To reset the GOM Guess O Meter on 2018 2019 2020 Jaguar I-Pace, perform the following instructions:

  • Press the “Start” button without touching the brake pedal. (this turns car on without starting it. Same thing you'd do for charging the car)
  • Depress the accelerator and brake pedals all the way down for 10 seconds then release it.
  • Turn off your car and start the engine to see to see the range change

Probably has a lot to do with how it was driven when they built and tested it.

I have been driving with a full family in the car, on comfort or dynamic mode, mostly highway driving and with AC and ventilated seats on, and it gives me almost exactly 200 miles with a full charge.

Now that I'm driving by myself to and from work with less load on the car, it looks like I'm getting about 100 miles/35 kWh, which will give me above 200 (and that's still with dynamic mode and not regulating my driving at all).

That number will adjust up or (hopefully not) down quickly depending on how you drive her.

This is a known issue with newest 2020 models owing to an assembly screw-up. The good news is that it will fix itself after around 11 hours of driving. See the service note (h/t @pcheaven on the UK board).

As others are stating, it has everything to do with how it has recently been driven.


As an alternative data point, I have had great weather here in Northern Virginia for the past few weeks, and with my suburban driving environment I am routinely seeing about 260-270 miles on the GOM when I fully charge. That will drop now that it has become hot and humid, since the AC (and especially the dehumdifying effort) will suck up a lot of energy. But my long run efficiency is 33.2 KWh/100 miles, which I think is pretty decent.


I haven't been as brave as others here so I have never let it get below 17%, but I hope to do better!

Just found this forum

I'm the moderator on another I-Pace forum and a member of the I-Pace advisory group. Was one of the first to order the I-Pace and have had it since December of last year. Mine is a blue HSE loaded with every option but the 22" wheels. Have had issues with the center AV component but otherwise the car has been wonderful. Have 5 cars, this is the one I prefer to drive.

Welcome to the forum, Enderle. What forum do you moderate? I'm always looking for more information about the I-Pace.

Does this method still work? I tried it yesterday and it did not work for me. How long do I have to wait to press the brake and accelerator pedals after I press the "Start" button? Do I wait until all systems load or do I just press the pedals immediately and hold for 10 second or maybe longer?

During one of the post 18D updates, it seems that the Range Estimator was locked down to 201 miles on a full charge to avoid constant questions why the number changes based on variables such as wheels, speeds, weather, loads, wind, and terrain. This was probably done to make people who come from EVs that have 'dumb' estimators feel better. There is only one brand I know of that uses a non-learning style range estimator, and they do not make gasoline cars where intelligent range estimators are more than 20 years old.

201 miles is about right for 75-80 mph freeway driving.

I remember reading a thread where somebody was fuming that their $100k Brand T EV was 2 miles different than advertised EPA range and wondered if the battery was bad.

Hopefully they ignore these complaints, and return our Range Estimator back to where it came from. It was pretty accurate, and would read from ~270 to 186 miles at 100% in my car depending on how I had been driving.
