Electric Vehicles Explained
Going Electric with Jaguar
How far can an electric car go?
Did you know that 95% of journeys made by cars on UK roads are under 25 miles?* That means one single charge would be enough for Jaguar I‑PACE to cover most of your weekly trips. In an all-electric car or when you’re using your full Electric Vehicle (EV) mode in a PHEV, your battery is the single source of energy for everything.
Low cost of ownership
The cost of electricity is lower per mile than petrol or diesel, making all-electric cars much cheaper to run on a daily basis. In fact, on average you could save £3600 over 3 years compared to a petrol or diesel car driving over 30,000 miles*.
For the fastest charging time at home, we recommend a professionally-installed home charger – also known as a wall box or home charging point. Installation will typically require private off-street parking – such as a driveway or garage – to connect to your home’s electricity. Click here to learn more.
To connect to a charging point, your Jaguar uses a Combined Charging System (CCS). It's easier than ever to charge on the go with over 20,000 public charging points now in the UK - from remote farm shops to motorway services. Click here to learn more.
Jaguar I-PACE Intuitive Technology
Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV)
BEV vehicles have no combustion engine, are an electric only drive and are charged by an external source with additional inputs from regenerative breaking. BEV benefits from a significantly higher range than the typical daily requirement.
Lower running costs, purchase incentives, lower BIK and other tax savings
EV driving experience
Zero congestion charges
0-80% rapid charge in 40 minutes
Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)
PHEV vehicles combine combustion engines with an electric motor and can be charged by an external source with additional inputs from regenerative breaking. PHEV benefits from a small electric range.
Make small electric-only trips
Saving money on fuel
Significant tax savings
High tow capacity
Ability to drive regardless of charge
Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicles (MHEV)
MHEV vehicles combine a combustion engine with a 48V battery while benefitting from Stop-Start technology, which harvests energy that can be reused. MHEV's cannot run on electric power alone and cannot be charged externally. MHEV has no electric-only range, as it is driven with a combination of combustion engine and electrical assistance.
Improved fuel economy, refinement and drivability
Simplicity of operation
No need to plug in
