Jaguar’s 2022 I-Pace provides American drivers with faster charging and a new infotainment system
Jaguar did not provide US I-Pace buyers with the upgrade launched last year, but it hopes to get things done. The automaker launched the 2022 I-Pace for the United States, which includes many upgrades in the British models in 2021 (not in the United States in 2021). These include the greatly improved Pivi Pro infotainment system and remote updates, a faster 11kW AC car charger, and 3D camera and digital rearview mirror options.
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.
The 2022 I-Pace only costs US$50 more than the 2020 car it replaces, starting at US$69,900. This is not a trivial expenditure. For the Tesla Model S, which has a longer range and more proficient overall technology, this may be a difficult sale. However, Jaguar still has an advantage in luxury. If you are more interested, it may be worth investing in a luxury ride instead of having the fastest EV in the block.
