TG magazine I-pace range

Post by Chutche » Thu Jun 14, 2018 5:56 pm

TG managed London to Lands End 291 miles max speed 47mph and no ancillaries on.
They reckon real life range is below 200miles.

I wonder if there's any equivalent to Fuelly for EVs? That's really what we need to nail down this sort of issue. Actually, cost is less important than it is on Fuelly, the only thing of prime interest is watts/100 miles or km. A lot of users might charge most days, but as long as you can get an accurate fix on the kWh pumped in then a Fuelly type app is still feasible.

And what does 'real life range' mean anyway when it's going to be different for everyone. You need some sort of long-term average across a whole range of drivers. I suspect that the US EPA range is likely to be as good a guide as any to what most people can expect - isn't that about 240 miles for the I-Pace?

1l of gasoline = 9kw. So 291 miles with 10l of gasoline is not bad at all for a car with 400bhp and weight 2200 kg ...
I don't think its possible with an ice car ...

How much charge was left when they reached their destination? Google maps puts the distance at 294 miles, so I’m assuming they made it??

I don't think sub 200 miles real life is 100% accurate guess.

I'm sure you'll be closer to 240 miles in UK spring/autumn, a model X 90D gets 240-250ish miles in these season, with 210+ in winter/summer.

Edit : I'd wait for one of the major EV you-tubers to spend a week with one, as they test the smeg out of the long range capabilities.

Probably like many on this forum I've watched numerous video reviews online but I've also just read hard copy reviews In Car, Auto Express, Autocar, What Car and Top Gear. The Lands End run wasn't actually done in one go, they had a sneaky 10% top up, but when they reached Lands End they calculated that without the top up they would have just made it. Car reports on a drive from Blackpool to Scarborough (with Wolfgang Ziebart as a passenger!) in which it sounds like they pushed the car quite hard. Set off with 93% charge, distance completed was 147 miles and they arrived with 62 miles of range left. Obviously I have no more proof than anyone else but from what I've read 240 miles seems to be a more likely average than "less than 200".

Yes we will need to wait on a longer test.Re the trip reported by Car 209 miles from 93%.This gives 180 on an 80% charge with
the car driven quickly.

Or ….. 225 from a 100% charge, which is how I will be keeping mine!

Remember that the displayed 100% and 0% don't necessarily relate to the battery's actual state of charge. The useable capacity is stated as 84.7 kWh, so I intend to use all of it, leaving the battery management system to look after the condition of the battery.

Exactly …. All this talk of 80% charge does seem odd to me as Paul J says only 84.7 kWh is available from the original 90 kWh - so surely isn't 100% full actually 93% full or am I missing something? So if you only filled the 84.7 to 80% (67 kWh) then you would actually be charging the battery 74% not 80% - surely the idea of not using the whole 100% in the first place is to allow the battery management to do its thing
….. also as was mentioned in the Car magazine review … because JLR expect most people coming to the I-Pace will be non EV owners they have to build in extra margins ….. so when the car shows 0 miles it will actually mean you have another 20 miles of range left.

I read somewhere that the chief ingeener of the i-pace stated that the battery is actualy 93kw, so their is 87kw available..
