The Jaguar I-Pace. electric SUV returns for 2022 with even faster charging possible and a reworked infotainment system to make breezing through menus and tasks a snap. Jaguar revealed the updates on Wednesday as it prepares to put the 2022 I-Pace on sale later this year. This includes a much-improved Pivi Pro infotainment system with remote updates, a faster 11kW AC on-board charger, and options for both a 3D camera as well as a digital rear view mirror.
More creature comforts will come standard, too. There’s only one trim level, HSE, but that includes LED headlights with auto high beams, a powered tailgate and 16-way heated and cooled front seats. The Meridian surround sound system now includes two extra speakers for a total of 16.
Drivers will certainly notice the big updates to the SUV’s Pivi Pro infotainment system. With it, Jaguar boasted drivers can access 90% of “common tasks” with fewer than two taps on the screen. There’s nothing worse than burying features behind too many screen taps. Also loaded into the latest infotainment system is the ability to display available charging stations nearby, and on longer drives, it can predict the I-Pace’s charge level by the time drivers arrive at their destination.
The 2022 I-Pace only costs $50 more than the 2020 car it replaces, starting at $69,900. That’s not a trivial outlay, and it might be a tough sell against the longer-ranged and overall more tech-savvy Tesla Model S. Jaguar still has the edge in luxury, though, and might be worth the investment if you’re more interested in a posh ride than having the fastest EV on the block.
