Impressive!

I am experiencing about 330km (206mi) when driving high way with a cruising speed of approx 105km mostly using cruise control. Nothing special, no rain temp about 11 degrees. Last track (back and forth) hardly any difference in consumption (3.95 vs 3.91 km / kwh). No excessive accelaration but yes, with ACC on.

I got my sw updated this week to 18D ( took 1.5 day) and it feels that range got a liitle worse but that may also be the change in weather. Anyway, quite disappointing. Driving slower is not really an option as setting cruise to 108 is already pretty slow in 130 roads.

I really hope that at 20 degrees I can do 120 km on the high way and still do something like 350. I don’t even dream from 480km as its already frustrating enough to have 400hp and endless torque you actually can not use.

To add: high regen, 20 inch weels and yes, winter tyres!
I did some motorway runs and got the following figures at constant speeds...

35.6 kWh/100mi @ 65mph
30.0 kWh/100mi @ 55mph

This was maintaining a constant speed in both directions (there and back).

No account was made for gradient, just maintained a constant speed, but not using Cruise Control. So basically, this is what my car achieves if anyone driving it (I think). Perhaps I should do the same thing with Cruise Control on.

18” wheel on the standard tyres that Jaguar supply with the car. 10degC ambient. It was dry and not too windy.

So the 65mph range is about 15% greater than you are seeing. 18” wheels with their lower rolling mass will probably make about 5% difference compared to the heavier 20” wheels. I also run a couple of PSI extra in my tyres, which may add 1%. It’s not too much of an issue having an extra 2PSI in such big tyres, they already give excellent damping and make the ride in the car very smooth. I have not seen any adverse tyre wear pattern after 7500 miles.

So there is 9% somewhere for you to gain. Maybe your winter tyres are conceding another 5%. That leaves 4% to find. I would think 4% is not worth the effort. You should just drive the car the way you do and enjoy it :-)

Come the warmer weather and summer tyres you will see a significant improvement in range.

I am no chewy but managed quite ok:

Didn’t have Jeremy Clarkson clocking, but M3 was quicker by a small margin that got bigger as speed increased. Also, found iPace to be a bit nervous at high speed but that might be due to wind and winter tyres (?).

... 2 identical cars racing, one gets a slightly better start: it will then appear that the car in front gets progressively faster as speed increases (since the distance delta is integral of the velocity and the first vehicle will always maintain its velocity delta).

All i’m trying to say is that your observation about getting bigger with speed should not be read as a difference in performance with speed, it’s just simple physics/maths and caused by either slightly different performance of either a) car or b) driver reaction on the day.

M3 is an impressive car so it just consolidates what we already know about the iPace performance ! 🏎

Although (assuming we are talking about the current model) the BMW M3 is ultimately a quicker car than the i-Pace. By around 0.5 seconds 0-60mph and 2.5 seconds 0-100mph, so will progressively pull away from the Jaguar, it pains me to admit.

My neighbour has just bought a 335bhp M240i which I think has virtually identical performance to our cat, although this has yet to be confirmed!

Ok, it was raining all day with strong wind when I did the same trip as last time but this time not using the cruise control.

Idea was that CC may not be the most efficient option in case of busy trafic.

So I did try to stay around 110 and drive so carefull that even my late mother would compliment me. The result: 3.6 km/kwh. More or less the same both ways but worse than last time I tried (see above) !

My car is now charging and looks like it will end with 320km when done. More or less what In have seen since early Jan. Funny thing is that a loaner i-pace showed 350 and up.

For the record, trip (one way) is about 26km.

Lets hope its the low temp plus winter tyres, if so it can only become better but for sure, the high way is not really the place to be

Getting used to driving an EV now and I’m noticing steady improvements in range. It has been very hot in Melbourne the last few days and I have noticed the fans kicking in a fair bit, including when plugging in to charge.

Still, range is looking good at the moment!

Another comment for those waiting for the warmer months - windows open is more efficient than climate control. Also seat cooling is more efficient than climate control. Climate control with 4 people in the car on a 39C day sucks a lot of range from the car!

Well, at least you have plenty of people to give you a push! ;)
