There's no better proving ground for vehicle performance than in motorsport. Through racing and motorsport development, Jaguar has developed a new, complimentary update that aims to enhance its innovative new I-PACE electric SUV for even better performance.

After unveiling the I-PACE all-electric SUV in 2018, Jaguar decided to put it to the test in a new racing application. The ensuing I-PACE eTrophy race series gave engineers the opportunity to analyze innumerable performance data points. This process, along with analyzing more than 50 million miles of real-world driving, helped engineers put together an update that optimizes many of the model's performance parameters.

Range: Analysis during the eTrophy race series revealed the potential for real-world range gains. The official maximum range for the I-PACE remains 234 miles, but the update can allow for an extra 8 percent of range depending on your driving habits.

Drivetrain: The new update alters the delivery of torque between the front and rear axles while in Eco mode. The result is full-time all-wheel drive traction with superior efficiency.

Battery Capacity: After the update, your I-PACE will be able to continue driving at a lower charge than before.

Jaguar itself has expressed excitement at the opportunities for improved performance in the I-PACE.

“The Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY has generated a huge amount of data for us to analyze and those marginal gains, derived from competition on the track, are now being applied to customers’ cars to further enhance their driving experience,” said Stephen Boulter, I-PACE Vehicle Engineering Manager. “The new software updates optimize the powertrain control systems to improve efficiency and allow I-PACE drivers to travel even further on a single charge without any hardware changes – it really is a case of the vehicle getting better with age.”

These are just a few of the ways the new update can improve performance in the Jaguar I-PACE. If you would like to take advantage of this new update, contact us here at Jaguar Troy. Our service center can conduct the update for your I-PACE free of charge. We'll take care of all your other maintenance needs as well.
