The Jaguar I-PACE has been around for a few years now, but its futuristic design leaves it looking more like a concept than outdated. It’s still a great package too, offering 292 miles of electric range, the ability to replenish 78 miles in 15 minutes, all-wheel drive, 696Nm of torque and a 0-60mph acceleration time of 4.5 seconds.
None of that has changed for 2022, but the I-PACE now comes with Amazon Alexa voice control and a new Premium Black Pack option. It’s like KITT from Knight Rider, except KITT knows what you order from Prime…
The addition of Alexa means that you should be able to ask the I-PACE to do a range of things without having to touch any car controls or your phone. For example you can interact with the I-PACE’s Pivi Pro infotainment systems' features including navigation, media playback, phone calls, and compatible smart devices.
The I-PACE is the first Jaguar to feature Amazon Alexa voice control, but all new Jaguars with Pivi Pro will now come with Alexa.
Existing owners of I-PACE models with Pivi Pro are among more than 55,000 Jaguar customers to have been offered Alexa in a software-over-the-air update. Owners will be notified via a message displayed in their vehicle’s touchscreen.
I-PACE drivers will also potentially be able to control compatible smart home features such as heating and lighting from an I-PACE through Alexa. And if you’re sitting in your house, you can ask Alexa what the range of your I-PACE is.
You can also choose what time you want your I-PACE to start and finish charging so you can take advantage of cheaper rate electricity overnight for example.
As well the addition of Alexa, the I-PACE is now also available with a new Premium Black Pack option.
This adds a Gloss Black finish to the grille, grille surround, side window surrounds, door mirror caps and rear badges, together with 22-inch split-spoke wheels finished in Gloss Black, a rear spoiler and air suspension. The I-PACE is also now available in Ostuni White metallic for the first time.
