2023 has only just begun but Jaguar has already detailed the 2024 model year version of its I-Pace electric crossover.
This update is highlighted by a grey, blanked-out grille, standard black pack, and new satin exterior paint finishes.
A Jaguar Land Rover Australia spokesperson has confirmed the 2024 Jaguar I-Pace will be offered locally, but pricing and arrival timing hasn’t been locked in yet.
All 2024 Jaguar I-Pace models are now R-Dynamic variants besides the 400 Sport which is exclusive to the UK. The Australian range will consist of R-Dynamic SE and R-Dynamic HSE variants.
As noted above, the front grille has been redesigned and is now blanked out with a smooth Atlas Grey panel. This replaces the previous gloss black lozenge-pattern grille.
Jaguar claims to have chosen this blanked-out grille design to make the front of the I-Pace look cleaner and to also “strengthen its inherently electric DNA”.
The front bumper, lower door and rear diffuser finishes are now painted body-colour instead of gloss black.
There’s now a standard black pack which adds gloss black finishes to the grille surround, window surrounds, side mirror caps, and rear badges.
All alloy wheels offered on the I-Pace as standard are now diamond-turned, while the optional 22-inch Style 5069 wheels now have a satin grey finish with carbon-fibre inserts.
There’s now the option to combine the panoramic glass roof with a contrasting roof colour. Previously, this was only available with a body-colour roof.
There are also two new satin exterior paint finishes, including Eiger Grey and Carpathian Grey.
The I-Pace’s dual-electric motor all-wheel drive powertrain carries over with total system outputs of 294kW of power and 696Nm of torque. Jaguar claims it can do the 0-100km/h sprint in 4.8 seconds and flat out you’ll be doing 200km/h.
It uses a 90kWh lithium-ion battery pack with a claimed range of up to 470km according to WLTP testing.
Jaguar claims that when plugged into a 100kW DC fast-charger, the I-Pace can add up to 127km of range in 15 minutes of charging.
When plugged into a 11kW home wall box on the other hand, the I-Pace can add up to 53km of range in an hour of charging.
There’s a smartphone app that allows owners to precondition the I-Pace and schedule charging, among other features. Jaguar claims it has been updated to make it simpler to use.
Like last year’s model, the 2024 Jaguar I-Pace has a Pivi Pro infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, integrated Alexa voice control, Spotify, and what3words navigation. Pivi Pro can be updated thanks to over-the-air software updates.
Electric vehicle (EV) sales may have soared last year, but the I-Pace hasn’t kept up. Sales slumped by 47.7 per cent in Australia, with only 23 examples sold during 2022.
It was outsold by the likes of the Tesla Model Y (8717 sales), BMW iX3 (593 sales), BMW iX (477 sales), Porsche Taycan (430 sales), Mercedes-Benz EQC (318 sales), Audi e-tron (129 sales), and Genesis GV70 Electrified (44 sales).
The only similarly priced EV the I-Pace outsold last year was the Genesis G80 Electrified sedan. Though it was introduced towards the end of the year, it still came close to matching the I-Pace in sales with 16 examples sold.
