Mostly California freeway, 65-85 mph. Commute of ~90 miles per day round trip, plus errands, weekend travel ball, etc. Average actual range right around 200 mi per charge consistently with the Bolt, and the 200 mile real world range was enough to eliminate any range anxiety. I never go more than about 150 miles in a day locally, and if we take a road trip, we take the wife's gas SUV. I do not believe in range anxiety, and would not consider a car with range much lower than ~200. Life is too short to spend any time at all worrying about a car battery.

The official EPA figure is due to be released within the next 3 to 4 weeks. Looks like 234 is going to be it.
One of the Nyland videos suggests that, of the 90 kwh battery pack, only 81.5 kwh is available for charge/use. I'm sure there is a reason why this is, but I'm not an expert and haven't looked it up as of yet. That said, is it possible that a future OTA software update could improve that number and extend range?

Anything's possible, but I wouldn't bet on it.

It could, it seems to be about double what Tesla uses. However, perhaps this also is why they say you can charge to 100% on a daily basis whereas Tesla advises you to charge to 80 or 90% most days to avoid extra wear on the battery?

It probably does mean something, i.e. that Jaguar's EPA testing and certification are complete, and 234 is the result. The Agency could audit the number, but that rarely happens.

I thought for EPA they actually had to provide the EPA a car to test and run the test cycle on their own?


They already have the Jaguar F-Pace SVR listed on EPA website, which dealers haven't even been able to place orders for yet. I suspect some sort of temporary permit was issued while Jaguar tweaks with the software.

Speaking of tweaking the software, dealers were sent an updated product information document on Monday. Among the tidbits:
1. For all cars currently built and all those that will be built before the end of this month, something called the Pathfinder tool will need to be used to update the software to enable DC fast charging at 100 kw. They also state that 0-80% charge time has been reduced from 45 to 40 mintues (once it's enabled, of course).
2. For these same I-Paces, the Pathfinder tool needs to update them to allow SOTA updates.
3. Amazon and Google Assistant integration has not happened yet and will require a future SOTA update.
4. Automatic lowering at highway speeds requires Adaptive Dynamics.

Bottom line, if you're taking possession of an I Pace built before Oct 31, 2018 (which I would presume to be most everyone on this message board), make sure the dealer has run the Pathfinder tool on your vehicle before you drive it off the lot.

No, apparently that's not how it works. Each manufacturer does the testing for its own cars, according to specifications established by EPA, and then reports and certifies the result. EPA generally does not receive a car.

This is good to know. Thanks.

The MPGe numbers for the I-Pace are as follows:

80 MPGe City
72 MPGe Highway
76 MPGe Combined

https://insideevs.com/jaguar-i-pace-range-just-234-miles/

Only a hair better than my RAV4-EV
Does your RAV-4 EV weight 5K lbs? Have AWD? Accelerate to 60 mph in 4.5seconds, have comfortable seating for 5? Loaded with luxury appointments that all use energy operate?

Seems like a failed comparison... Look at Model X 90D as it is within 200lbs, and even with better aerodynamics, and total drag, cannot accelerate to 60 in 4.5 seconds, nor does it have most of the I-Paces luxury appointments. Much better comparison though. In Bjorn Nyland testing I-Pace proved equal to or slightly more efficient then his Model X P90DL.

Yeah, that seems poor. Another comparison: the Chevy Bolt's 119mpge is 57% greater than I-Pace's 76mpge.:surprise:

Still, I don't care about the efficiency, and the I-Pace' range is sufficient for my needs. So, no problem!:grin2:
