Post by Eyalron » Tue Jan 14, 2020 12:22 pm

Our I-pace competes with e-from, Tesla 3, merc eqc, Kia niro, Nissan Leaf in a real range test in The UK. Drive until their battery dies...

But the question is : did they use an i-pace with H264 update which could maybe do 20 more miles.

Actually, lot's of questions.

Only at the end, we are told which version of the Model 3 is being tested. And that the Leaf is the 64 kWh model.
But on the I-Pace and the other cars we now nothing. Am not too familiar with the other models (of course), but which wheels did the I-Pace have (18"/20" or the 22" ones). Did it have the H264 update.
Did all cars realy start at 100% charge? Did they precondition the cars prior to starting? Etc. Etc.

The idea of the test is excellent, the execution only so so.

That tends to be the case with everything from Carwow bar their actual car reviews.

For some reasons the cars did not start at 100%. They say that the cars was fully charged the night before or so, but lost some during the night.
Very strange. There is a picuture of the I-Pace holding a 96% charge I believe.

Fact is that Ipace reached the lowest % against the supposed range.

Yes but this fact depends of all that was said before ...
I suppose jaguar used 100% charged and precond car with 18" wheels to establish the max range.
3rd is not that bad for a 400bhp SUV of 2.2 tons, much comparable to etron and EQC than others cars.

Not quite the lowest.

MB EQC - 75% of claimed range
I-Pace ~76%
Tesla Model 3 -78%
Audi Etron - 81%

the slight lack of scientific approach doesn’t bother me.... it’s an interesting video to get a quick idea about each car and it’s rather irrelevant whether one car goes 20km further than another or not. For sure there’ll be some people where that extra 20km might be important for their daily use case, but for 95% of us who drive normal distances in our daily work etc the choice of car is going to be on other factors, such as quality of finish, driveability etc.

TM3 Long Range result is impressive though.... well done Elon for continuing to push EVs at the pace he has. If it wasn’t for Tesla, we wouldn’t be driving our iPaces !

Not the lowest, I pace was 76% while either EQC or Etron was 75%.

I like the test they done but execution is really bad - they also should have reported avg speed and avg consumption for each car.

The other things that surprissed me is that E-tron could not be pushed and that with some cars 0 miles left is really 0 miles left while others could drive another 10-20 miles after hitting 0. With I-pace doing 30 miles passed 0 I am fairly sure the test I-pace didn’t have H264.

Last with regards claimed range - the 292 miles of the I-pace is city range (avg speed 23mph) so bit odd to compare claimed range vs real world range if you do the test for 90% on highway.

Jaguar still claims/advertises the 292 miles of range without indicating it is max range (city range).

The story that I-pace lost 4% charge overnight is rubbish, mine never ever lost SoC% only when I did pre-conditioning without it being plugged in.
