Jaguar has developed an intelligent mobile phone application that allows drivers’ to experience the all-electric I-PACE before getting behind the wheel.
The Go I-PACE app has been designed to capture the journey
data in order to calculate potential cost savings, battery energy used per
trip, the number of charges needed per week, all based on everyday driving
The application also gives potential buyers considering
switching from a traditional combustion engine to an electric vehicle an
insight into cost savings they would make, and a map of all the charging
locations on that person’s chosen route.
Ian Hoban, Jaguar I-PACE Vehicle Line Director, says that a
traditional test drive doesn’t show the lower running costs and convenience of
living with an electric vehicle day-to-day, adding:
“Making the switch to electric vehicle ownership is a big
decision. We’re confident anyone who experiences the I-PACE will relish its
engaging driving dynamics, performance, practicality and comfort. And the Go
I-PACE app is designed to help potential customers make an informed decision.”
Available on Apple’s App Store in the UK and Europe on 11 July followed by other markets and Google Play Store in due course, the application
uses the mobile phone’s location services to track individual journeys in the
background. Watch as EV expert Robert Llewelyn put the Go I-PACE app through
its paces below.
