Thought it was time for a bit of an update….

Good news is I am still loving the I-Pace :)

Now done over 8,500 miles and only one problem of note - but not a Jaguar one, bolt through the tire so one new tyre needed, was impressed with the TPMS and the stability of the car - I managed to avoid using the gunk and kept it inflated enough to get home and have it replaced.

Range in the warm weather continues to impress me, long trips (100m+) aren’t a problem and I’ve done round trips of 250 miles+ in a day (yesterday was round trip to Bristol) with a small top up charge if potentially on the limit.

Range estimate at the moment is over 280 miles and after a run of 135 miles I will see circa 55% left. Typically seeing over 3mi/kWh with 3.4 yesterday on a 108 mile A-road and M-Way steady cruise back from Bristol so very happy.

Today is another “long” run up to Leeds at 135 miles and a handy free charger gets me back to nearly 100% for the return tomorrow.

Even my wife is a potential convert - after initially saying no way she’s now ”window shopping” EV’s as I pointed out she would wait a year for many of them.

Although I may need to invest in Solar and Battery storage 1st given the energy prices 😬

Wow! To get that efficiency you’ll have to drive it at 55mph! Patience and time on your hands!
I am not the fastest driver but can’t still get my head around the use and meaning of my I-Pace :)
I have got 400hp I can’t use the horses because they’ll drain all the energy. I have to drive it slowly to arrive at destination.
driving 70/80mph, overtaking up to 90mph I get 150miles. That’s the way I want to drive all my cars. Expecially when you pay 70 grand.
Tried for curiosity Tesla 3 and I can get at least 200 miles off it. If it wasn’t ugly, boring and uncomfortable… :)

We get around 240 miles range, less on a long run. But we do drive it like a normal car. We don't hang about.

I tend to average 65+ on my trips if it’s more motorway, lower if it’s A roads and traffic. Slightly less speed seems to make a big difference, even cruising around 70 rather than 75 - but I still like to use the power to get past things ;)

I do use the active cruise a lot which I do think helps as well.

I collected my new Model 3 Performance the other day. They had fully charged it for me as I had requested. In order to use Tesla Superchargers you have to register it with the new V5; obviously not with me for a few days. I decided to drive home with no charging. Initially the car suggested this was a terrible idea and that I would HAVE to charge. I went at 65-68mph and got home with 16% left.

For the electro-geeks out there, it managed 4.23 miles per kWh. The journey used 57kWh of electricity. The equivalent cost on my current tariff comes in at £2.85. In future, on a similar trip, I rather spend an extra pound I think!! So, it would have done 300 miles using the 'full tank'. Keighley to Clevedon is 243 miles.

As an aside I promised myself 2 things - I'd never buy another black car (I had a black SV8 a few years ago), and I'd never buy a car from Keighley (look at Autohub reviews!). Whoops!! Don't worry, it wasn't from Autohub!

Nice run down to Northampton tomorrow morning.... longest run out in the new one, so far.
Probably have to top up at Rugby on the way back.
Definitely charging up to 100% tonight.

I haven’t found the I-PACE very economical. But still good enough for us.

Here’s on of last weeks journeys as a comparison - more motorway but quite a few 60 limits On the M1 ”managed motorway”, the Bristol trips were slower by comparison due to A roads and traffic.

I don’t think it shows that as a power figure, but you can see a graph in the car showing braking impact on the power usage. Just like turning up the AC or using excessive speed.

I get the impression that all you EV owners are hyper-miling. Where's the fun in that? ;)

I'm definitely not. Just get in and drive it like normal.

The definition of hypermiling is all relative. All these EV owners are probably not getting overtaken by anything let alone an XJ.😀

Judging by my trip on Friday, many cars are sitting at 60-65. Also very few tanking along at 80+.
The motorway speed has dropped dramatically since fuel hit £1.90/litre. Traffic volume seems to be down as well.

I was getting passed by several EVs on my journey to Stoke.

with much of the M6 North of Birmingham to around Haydock ( both ways) being littered with Av speed cameras at 60mph limits its hardly surprising.

If we're on a motorway, I'll be passing all the EVs at some point. Won't I? 😀

And whenever I pass (or get passed by) an EV, there's always an associated strange squeaking sound which I've figured out to be butt-cheeks clenching. :LOL:
