    Nice video that i would like to comment on:
    Have had my own I-Pace now for six months and over 10K miles (17K km). So far, have had ZERO problems with the car and it has been a extremely pleasant and comfortable experience so far.
    Range in the real world has been 340-360 km during last winter, but now, May 2020, my range has increased to 454 km on a full charge, which is 96.6% of the official WLTP-range. It does require that you will limit you highway speeds to no more than 110 km/h and otherwise adapt a easy style of driving for which the I-Pace is actually well suited. It also proves the I-Pace can actually achieve a very good range given the size and weight of the car.

    Using Jaguar brand for 18+ years and this is my horrible review with the I-PACE.
    I've had a horrible experience with Jaguar's I-Pace. I had the vehicle for a year, and have only been able to drive it for approximately 2k miles. It has had issues with battery, software malfunction, charging system, and even when you would try to start the car it would make noises. Its a shame that Jaguar has tainted its brand with such a problematic car.
    If you want to be walking to places instead of driving, BUY a Jaguar I-PACE.

    It was going well till he said the real range is 220 miles … we live in the South of France and drive up and down to England now and then and down to Southern Spain. This thing would require 2 hotel stops on the way instead of our normal 1, always assuming the charging stations weren't already occupied. Umm … I fear a hybrid is the answer. This thing is OK for general home use but useless for journeying.

    Fair enough video, but contentious statement at 6:05 or so: ‘…customer spent all of £25 for the whole of the 2000 miles’ when speaking of a female customer driving across Europe. Now, I charged up a Nissan LEAF 30kWh battery I think it was, for about £5 or a tad less. That was on a home charging plug. That was when electricity was about 12p per unit. Any given public charger, costs about twice this, almost three times this, per unit of electricity. Typically, I found a price of 30p per unit. The rules got changed, and now the public chargers in the UK load the cost onto some initial cost, THEN charge less than 30p per unit, BUT when you work it all out – it averages out to be EQUIVALENT to about…30p per unit!

    So, by this factual assessment, I get my calculations to show, we can get about 500 miles for £70 in a LEAF. I know this for fact, from receipts. Therefore, with 2/5 charges being home charging, my LEAF would require £280 to do a public highway drive of 2,000 miles in the UK.

    How to reconcile these two contrasting accounts? Our Jaguar-appointed advisor here tells Jonny, he knows a woman who did 2,000 electric miles for 10% of what I know from receipts and miles, a 2,000 mile trip would cost.

    Let’s try making it kilometres instead of miles, so we get the number of miles to be just 5/8 say 1250 miles (I am assuming the woman in question made an error or the story has been embellished, and in fact it was 2,000 km not 2,000 miles). That could be done with just £190 or so.

    Now, let’s assume the good lady actually used NO public chargers at all. Always somehow she had a friend in every place she needed to charge, or paid a hotel bill that in effect cross-subsidised her car charging? So, we can assume it ALWAYS costs just 12p per unit of electricity. That makes it £4 to do 150 miles, at the absolute best I believe. This, gives us £32, which is at least in the right ball-park.

    So, please do advise: is it not the case, that in order to make any semblance of truth, the good lady mentioned, aCTUALLY meant kilometres of 2,000 NOT miles, and she actually never ever used what we could term a ‘bog standard’ public charger for her i-pace Jaguar?

    That, I could almost say would cost her as little as £25 but ONLY IF she does NOT re-charge the car at the end of the journey, and calculates based therefore on a false amount of electricity consumed, by missing out one ‘tankful’ of i-pace charge, which the vehicle actually did use on the journey.

    To call this ‘loose’ reporting of the facts is to absolutely whitewash what’s been done here. Please don’t do that. The i-pace is an excellent EV, don’t sully it by covering up how much of a rip-off public charging is. Thank you I appreciate it.
