At the launch I was told that a SIM card would be provided with an adequate capacity for OTA updates and infotainment. Also that this would be prepaid for 2 or 3 years.
Is this still the case?

I heard the same from the sales rep at my dealer. According to discussions in other threads/forums it seems that this is different from country to country.

From the dutch price list:
Remote, inclusief Automatische noodoproep met positiemelding, Optimised Jaguar Assistance bij pech onderweg met positiemelding en doorgeven diagnosegegevens en Remote Essentials App met Remote Lock/Unlock, Beep & Flash, Charging Status Information (laadtoestand accu, laadstatus, laadsnelheid, stekkerstatus, geschatte EV-actieradius), Remote Control Actions (starten/stoppen van opladen, selecteren gunstige laadtarieven, instellen maximale laadtoestand van accu)
Remote omvat een abonnement dat kan worden verlengd na de door uw Jaguar dealer geadviseerde aanloopperiode
Voor Remote is een SIM-kaart met geschikt data-abonnement vereist
It says that for the Remote Optimised Jaguar Assistance and Remote Control a SIM card is required that is not included..

For UK:
You effectively have 500mb per month for the warranty period.

ESSENTIAL Data Plan
The ESSENTIAL data plan will enable the customer's connected Navigation Services, Online Media and Wi-Fi Hotspot. The ESSENTIAL data plan will provide 500MB data per month, renewed monthly, for the duration of the vehicle warranty. This will be sufficient to meet most customers' navigation needs. If the customer requires more data they will be able to purchase additional data top ups called EXTENSIONS through their Ubigi account (by using the Ubigi website or the Ubigi app).

It says only that a SIM card is required, not that it is not included, I think.

Does that allow you to make automatic emergency calls and/or automatic service calls?

I do not know that unfortunately. The card is for data and 100 minutes calls if you mean that.

As long as it has voice capability (100 minutes) then you are OK. There are data-only cards out there mainly for tablets, which do not include voice. That would imply you wouldn't be able to use (automated) emergency calls.

Best SIM IMHO for this sort of thing is Three's preloaded one:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/data-sim-card- ... 0preloaded
£25 for 12GB/12months or £45 for 24GB/24months. The great thing about these is that it's not 1GB/month, it's 12 (or 24) GB at any time over 12 or 24 months. Much better than X GB/month.
I agree this is one of the best deals going, especially, if like me, you have no idea how much data you will actually need per month.

I went once more to the Paris Motor Show to discuss the SIM card matter with JLR and learnt that the IPACE navigation system is not able to provide
real-time infos on the charging networks status (like Tesla does ).
The recommanded way to do navigation planning is therefore using your phone to launch a charger navigation app , select your route, and in second step to launch Waze or Google Maps with CarPlay or Android Auto inside the car. These operations does not require a second car SIM card.

Do realize that there is no such things as a "Jaguar Charging network" - like Tesla has it's own Supercharging network - installed and managed by Tesla. You have to deal with a large number of independent providers, some are linked, others are not. It differences from country to country, region to region. Most offer one or two chargers per location. So, you have to be lucky up to some point when arriving - it might be occupied. On a European level most relevant is the Ionity charge network - it's supposed to become as wide spread as Tesla's supercharger. A minimum of 6 chargers per location - 100+kW. Currently at 12 locations - another 20 are under construction. Tesla has 4000+ chargers at 423 locations currently. Hopefully one day real time information about these chargers becomes available in the car and integrated with the navigation.

Anyway even if u can see it's free or not, their could be someone using it just before u arrive. Only safe way will be a reservation system but then u have to be their at the right time and use it only for the time u reserved it wich could be limited. Will still tricky untill EV doesn't charge 8n around 15mn. almost like ice cars.
Our luck for now is that their aren't many EV with long range except Tesla.

"Will still tricky untill EV doesn't charge 8n around 15mn. almost like ice cars."
Or as an alternative, provide many chargers per locations (Tesla has locations with up to 50 chargers) and a large number of charge locations. Currently The Netherlands has 16 Tesla locations, 11 more to follow. Basic idea nevertheless has always been that Superchargers are only used for long roadtrips and daily regular charging is done at home overnight, at work etc. during day-time. Most cars do not move for 22 hours during a day... plenty of time to charge your car.

To correct myself: a data only card is required: Jaguar InControl

To be more precise a data card without a pin code , because the IPACE cannot read it

From the iPace owner's manual in the InControl Overview section, right on top:

"Several InControl® features require an internet connection. A data-enabled micro SIM is pre-installed to the vehicle. If a data-enabled micro SIM card has not been supplied, please contact a retailer/authorized repairer."
