electricity consumption

Post by Mussemie » Wed Sep 06, 2017 1:36 pm

Hiya,
I'm new at this forum. What puzzles me is the fact that everyone including myself is unaware of the consumption the i-Pace will have in comparison to a traditional combustion engine. What will be the cost of electricity to drive 100 km on average? Can anybody tell me or reveal the way I have to calculate this? My Jaguar dealer is unaware.

Hi,

Average electricity cost (kWh) is 16.42p (look at your bill for more accurate figure).
iPace battery circa 90 kWh
Range circa 500Km

So for 100 Km requires 100/500 x 90 kWh = 18kWh (assuming 100% efficiency!)

So cost = 18 x £16.42 = £2.96.

So answer is that (all things being equal) 100Km will cost £3.00 i.e. < 3 ltr diesel/petrol

Cheers,


Rob

Useful calculations thanks.

Thing to remember is we haven't seen the final model yet, let alone any facts and figures. We're hoping for some details coming out of the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Unfortunately the range will be a bit less. The official NEDC range is given as 540 km or so. However the NEDC is always too optimistic. You probably be closer to 400 km range (still a guess though, I won't stick m hand in the fire for it). Thus 22 kWh / 100km is a more realistic value.

Cost 22 kWh x 16.42p = £3.61 / 100 km
Cost 22 kWh * € 0.20 Euro = € 4.40 / 100 km

In Norway electricity is around 0,08€ pr kwh which gives a cost of 1.78€ for driving 100 km. Diesel is priced at 1.50€ per liter and with a consumption of 8 liter per 100 km that gives a cost of 12€. And in addition to the huge "fuel"savings we have many other incentivs as well. No wonder electric cars are popular here :-)

Electrity (including taxes) is only 0.08 per kWh? Wow that’s cheap! We pay around 0.18 - 0.23

here in germany, i think, if you want to drive the Jag with a little smile on the face and without speedlimit, the i-pace will need around 30kWh
30x0,25ct = 7,50€ (6,65£) = 6,5Liter Diesel. (-50% as i made the electricity with my own fuel Cell)

Yes, that includes tax. Since most of it comes from hydro electric plants it varies according to how much water they have stored, how much it rains etc but for the last ten years it has been between 0.04 and 0.10 euro per kwh, everything included. And that is converted wit a record high euro to nok exchange rate that we have today at almost 10 nok for a euro. It used to be around 8 nok per euro a couple of years back.

I have driven Model S on Autobahn and the consumption is sky high if you want to ride with the "big guys" in the left lane. Not only because of the high speed but mostly due to the number of deceleration and acceleration cycles you need to do. The Model S quite quickly became power limited, meaning that it would no longer allow quick acceleration due to excessive heat in the batteries. A guy called "Tesla-Bjørn" on YouTube have a number of videos both for Model S and X which details consumption and range on Autobahn.

When I asked how much it would cost to charge an i-Pace at the Solihull event I was told that, depending on how much you pay for electricity, a 'full tank' would work out at something like £13.
