When using one pedal driving to bring I-pace to a complete stop, will brake hold activate automatically? I am not sure from my experience. Also, how can one tell and be sure that the brake hold is on? It makes me nervous that car may move. I tried to add hold to favorite button but does not seems to be working when I press the button. Maybe my favorite button is not working. Thanks.

Brake hold activates automatically when you've come to a complete stop, but only if you're truly flat or on an incline in D. It will not activate if you're even on the slightest decline.
In my experience, if you gently stop on flat or very slightly inclined slope and don't press the brake pedal, it will activate automatically and you'll hear a very subtle 'crunch'. If you're on a steeper slope and you don't press the brake (or gas) it will roll forward and then start rolling backward, so you have to press the brake pedal for it to engage. Then you can leave off the brake. I have never had an issue with it and am not afraid to use it.

If I recall correctly, if you're in R it activates when you're pointing downhill, with all the same logic.

A lot of people don't realize you can manually engage brake hold but it's in the user manual how to do it. When you are at a stop, engage the parking break with the switch below and to the left of the steering wheel. The dash will say Park to indicate the brake hold is active. You can take your foot off the brake and the car won't roll. To start moving again just press the accelerator and the Park indicator will go out.

I wanted to program the hold onto the favorite button on the steering wheel so I don't have to reach down but does not work. Maybe I did not do it right.

I think I know the source of confusion here. I just looked at the online user manual for what you can program into the Favourite (British spelling in the guide) button, and one of the functions is "Hold" but this is not brake hold, this is placing a phone call on hold. All of the functions this button can be programmed to do are for the infotainment system, nothing about operating other controls in the car.

Thanks. I wish Jaguar can make it clear. It is the second time this week it got me confused. When I tried to set the tailgate height, it got me confused as it didn't state clearly that the button on the gate must be the one to push, not the button on the key. It is the detail that makes all the difference. Any way, big thanks again.

On a related note, does anyone know whether the regen braking setting can be set by driver profile? Despite my attempts to get my wife to try one-petal driving with our Chevy Bolt, she completely refuses. I think it’s a paradigm shift in driving and almost always choose it. The I-Pace is my wife’s daily driver, so if I can’t base the regen braking setting on a profile, I’m probably SOL.

I can't get it to set by profile either. We're in the same spot, my wife wants light regen and I prefer heavy. It's simple to change but I usually forget until the first stop and I almost roll through the intersection... Lol

Not sure of this is a pre MY21 problem but mine (with brake autohold enabled) holds when pointed up or downhill when it comes to a complete standstill or if I hit the brake pedal.

The 2021 models likely have real brake hold. If you can turn it on/off in the instrument panel settings then it is real brake hold. The 2020 LR Discovery has real settable brake hold (loaner while mine was in shop for warranty service). The earlier model "fake" brake hold seems to work ONLY when the vehicle is pointed uphill or when using Adaptive Cruise Control and car stops on its own in any position (which is a scary thing to do).

Yes the brake autohold soft switch was added in the Pivi 2.0.6 release

For a car sold at the price of the I-Pace First Edition, lack of true brake hold was a disappointment. For that matter so is the ineffective operation of seat memory which does not conveniently provide for automatic exit departure on ignition turnoff and restoral to diving position on ignition turn-on. The workaround for this is cumbersome and when not followed again becomes a burden. One tends to overlook these shortcomings when driving this kool BEV!!!

Well the autohold works well on the current model, have never heard of this being an issue with the earlier cars either but have less experience driving them. Is this a global issue or US specific?

I understood the old model could commit seat positions to driver profiles, the MY21 doesn't seem able to do this currently but its not a big issue for me, I guess much depends on how you drive the car, if sharing between a number of family members its probably more of an issue but having to press a button to restore seating position on entry would not even make the top 10 of the things I will gripe about.

On pre-MY21, one can use a seat memory position to be where the seat is lowered and moved back to allow maximum room for exit. You have to manually press the seat memory button to do that. The car can remember your desired driving seat position via a profile, but it moves the seat as soon as you open the door instead of waiting until the start button is pressed.

My older Range Rover moves the driver seat down and back with power off, and waits until power on to move the seat to match what is desired according the fob it detects. This allows the driver to have maximum room for both exit and entry. It also has a powered steering column that moves for these moments. The I-PACE does not.

Yes the lack of powered steering column (and thus full tailored driving set up per person) is on my top 10 of annoying things. However another stupid pre MY21 problem has been solved for the MY21 in that the charging flap send and alert to the main instrument panel if its open at startup or you drive with it open.
