Since its debut, the first all-electric performance I-PACE SUV has won more than 80 global awards, including 2019 World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year, World Green Car and AutoTrader 2020 South African Car of the Year.
The I-PACE has now been updated, offering a new infotainment system, improved driver assistance technologies and faster-charging capabilities.
The new Pivi Pro infotainment system features a 10-inch and 5-inch upper and lower touchscreen. With the inspiration of smartphones, the Pivi Pro is easy to use and its processor is supported by a built-in back-up battery – meaning the navigation initialisation takes just a few seconds.
The navigation system uses self-learning algorithms to optimise routing, voice guidance even knows to remain quiet when you’re travelling through areas you know and menu structure makes navigating the system easier than before with frequently used features and functions accessible via the home screen.
The maps will always be up to date thanks to software-over-the-air (SOTA) functionality
The I-PACE is now also available with an optional wireless device charging pad beneath the ‘floating’ centre console. A Smartphone Pack with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard on all derivatives.
The electric SUV now comes with an 11kW on-board charger as standard, enabling access to three-phase electricity supplies to enjoy significantly faster charging.
South African customers with access to single-phase supply can continue using 7kW wall boxes which charge up to 35km per hour, with a full charge taking 12.75 hours. When charging ‘on the go’, a 60kW charger will add up to 76km in 15 minutes, while a 100kW charger will add up to 127km over the same period.
The new 3D surround camera provides a 350-degree digital plan view of surrounding areas and potential hazards, visible through the central infotainment touchscreen.
The Clearsight rear view mirror ensures the driver has an obstructed view of the road behind. Clearsight uses a wide-angle rear facing camera linked to the screen within the glass mirror.
Cabin air ionisation designed to remove allergens, also features a filtration system which captures ultrafine particles to improve occupant health and wellbeing. One important benefit to the new filtration system is that, when charging, customers can use the I-PACE’s pre-conditioning system (which optimises battery temperature) to get rid of allergens and ultra fine particles inside the cabin before beginning a journey.
With a 470km range from its 90kWh battery, I-PACE customers with an average daily commute would only need to charge their vehicle once a week.

The I-PACE comes with an 8 year or 160,000km battery warranty on top of the standard Jaguar Care plan which offers a 100,000km warranty and servicing within in 5 year period, whichever comes first.
All new or Approved Pre-Owned Jaguar customers in South Africa also receive complimentary driver training at the state-of-the-art Experience Johannesburg facility in Lonehill, Johannesburg.
