JAGUAR I-PACE SMASHES EVERESTING CHALLENGE ON A SINGLE CHARGE
REGENERATIVE BRAKING TECHNOLOGY
The I-PACE’s regenerative braking system was developed using technology from Jaguar Racing’s Formula E program. Jack Lambert, Jaguar Racing Engineer, said, “The advanced regenerative braking system developed for the I-PACE is a defining feature of the driving experience. Lessons learned through our Formula E program on the track ensure I-PACE customers enjoy benefits on the road in terms of optimised range.”
The I-PACE was preconditioned ahead of the challenge by plugging it in using mains power. Preconditioning automatically heats or cools the battery to reach its ideal operating temperature and sets the desired cabin temperature to optimise range and comfort. Combined with the I-PACE’s outstanding performance, including acceleration from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds and up to 470km range, Barker was able to tackle the Everesting challenge with ease.
