Cats,

...she went into "sleep" and I returned to a full charge with no issues after seven days away! The car previously went to "sleep" when it spent a week at the dealer, so I am happy this mode actually works on my car.

Prior to leaving, I charged my car up to 100% and then left it sitting locked, unplugged in a locked reasonably well climate controlled residential garage in the height of the summer for seven consecutive days.

This isn't a humble brag or a boast-post either. There's also a lot of complaining about things going wrong etc. but it is helpful to report to the mob on when things go right.

I had a great time going for a rip last night because I truly missed the experience of it when I was away, what a car this is! it is so fun to drive.

If you know upfront that you gonna leave the car locked for a relatively long period, you can fill it up to 80-90% , not 100%, that would be better for the battery. For a period of 1 or 2 days, I would not bother too much about this, but 7 days and up, yes.

I've left mine hooked up to the charger and sitting in the garage for over 2 weeks. It didn't do anything either. It didn't even engage the charger. It just had a good long nap.

I was testing it out because wanted to see if it actually lost anything over the course of the week from it just sitting there.

Lack of parasitic drain is one of the strong points of the I-Pace. IIRC, one forum member let it sit for 3 months (?) or something like that and we calculated that at the drain rate he observed it would take years to deplete completely.

You calculated 7.4 years.

Yes. Jaguar definitely got the vampire drain right from the beginning. It seems to be a pretty common thing for EVs to lose a few percent each day just idle. Glad it doesn’t happen to our cats!
