The I-PACE has a claimed WLTP range of 292 miles. The range depends on your route, driving style and weather conditions. Strong acceleration, high speeds, mountain roads or cold weather will decrease your range. Here is an interesting article on how to get maximum miles out of your electric vehicle.

Time to charge

The main difference between electric and petrol/diesel cars is the time it takes to charge compared to filling it up at the fuel station. There are 4 types of electric car charging – ultra-rapid, rapid, fast and slow. The charging times for the I-PACE vary where you charge the car: 

  • Ultra-Rapid 100kW public charging networks: approx. 45min for 80%
  • Rapid 50kW public charging networks: approx. 1.5h for 80%
  • Fast 7kW public charging networks: approx. 13h for 80%
  • Slow 3kW home plug: approx. 30h for 80%

Charging will impact your overall journey time and needs to be planned for. We recommend visiting ZapMap which provides a UK map of charging stations. If you register, you get to use their clever route planner for electric vehicles.

How to charge

To use public charging networks we recommend Polar, the UK’s largest public charging network. Access is via their  app and you can pay as you go. 

When you get to a charging point, follow these simple steps: 

  1. Unlock the car, select park (P), switch off the car and press the right side of the flap located behind the front wheel arch on the passenger's side
  2. Connect the charging cable to the car. Please note, the rapid charging port is covered by a rubber insert
  3. Charging starts automatically, a green light will start flashing next to the car’s charging port and the charging cable will become locked in the car’s port
  4. To stop charging, press the unlock button on the key fob to unlock the cable from the port and remove the cable from the I-PACE port
  5. Close the charging port flap and ensure the rapid charging port is covered by the rubber insert
  6. The charging status and  range can be viewed in the car's central display
  7. If needed, an extra set of charging cables is located in the front bonnet

How much is a full charge

In general, a full charge for the I-PACE will amount to around £17. Last but not least, please note that most Tesla charging points will not work for the I-PACE. Best to use Polar, the UK’s largest public charging network.
