Phantom drain

Post by emgf » Mon Jul 09, 2018 1:04 pm

Hi Stacie,
Tesla batteries are draining, like all batteries, and loosing between 5 to 9 miles per day ( depending on the model)

Do you have released any figures for the I-Pace ?
How much battery charge will be available if I go on holidays for 3 weeks and leave my I Pace uncharged ?
I leave in Paris and cannot charge my car at home .

Subsidiary question: Can the I-Pace be turned off completely (for instance when locked and on holiday away, not connected to a supply, or for when travelling on Euro-Tunnel, unlocked). I have read that Tesla Model S has this function, so I hope I-Pace will have also.
I-Pace HSE on order - Farallon Black - Promised Delivery was 02/09/18, then 30/01/19, then 02/01/19, now 19/12/18

I remember them saying there will be some drain but no where near Tesla levels.

As for fully off I have no idea.

Even Tesla’s are not routinely losing that much a day unless you decide to leave the car always connected to WiFi, or use an app that constantly interrogates it for data, or use the ac to keep the cabin temperature down.

2-3 miles a day is perfectly achievable if you let it go to sleep properly and don’t keep waking it up.

I imagine the Jaguar will be similarly affected by user choices...

I recall being told by Jaguar at the launch in Graz that battery drain really is very low. I don't remember the exact figure but it was something like one percent a week.
