The Jaguar I-PACE now offers more driver-focused technology than ever and new options to enhance its multi-award-winning design.

  • Seamless integration with Pivi Pro: Makes voice control simple and intuitive so customers can connect to more of their world – while keeping their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road
  • Interact with your I-PACE from anywhere: From checking your range to making sure the doors are locked, you can ask the Jaguar Remote Skill for Alexa. This is also available on all Jaguar models with the Pivi Pro and Touch Pro infotainment systems (UK and US customers only)4
  • Premium Black Pack introduced: Enhances I-PACE’s visual impact and presence with combination of the Black Pack, new Gloss Black 22-inch wheels, rear spoiler and air suspension. Ostuni White metallic paint is also now available

The all-electric performance SUV becomes the first Jaguar to feature Amazon Alexa voice control. Seamlessly integrated, it brings the familiar Alexa experience to the I-PACE and provides natural voice interaction with the Pivi Pro infotainment system’s features including navigation, media playback, phone calls, and compatible smart devices. Following its debut on I-PACE, all new Jaguars with Pivi Pro will come with Alexa.

Requests such as ‘Alexa, navigate me to home’, ‘Alexa, play my chill-out playlist’ and ‘Alexa show me nearby coffee shops’ can all be done by voice. You can also check the news, the weather and manage your schedule or shopping list – just by asking.

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.

The seamless integration of Amazon Alexa with our Pivi Pro infotainment system gives customers simple, intuitive voice control of regularly used features, making the driving experience even more enjoyable. The fact we can also offer this new feature to existing customers proves the value of our software-over-the-air-updates.

Customers around the world interact with Alexa billions of times each week, making life easier, more productive, and more fun. We’re excited to deliver that same delightful, convenient experience to Jaguar customers – and because Alexa is always getting smarter, new features and capabilities will be added over time and delivered to their vehicles automatically.

Head of Alexa Automotive International

The Alexa voice experience is intuitive to use, making it easy for customers to operate while keeping their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Alexa even makes it possible to control compatible smart home features such as heating and lighting from your I-PACE. You only have to ask: ‘Alexa, set the living room temperature to 20 degrees’, for example.

Customers in the UK and US will also be able to control and check on their I-PACE wherever they are using the Jaguar Remote Skill on any Alexa-enabled device. ‘Alexa, ask Jaguar to check my range’, ‘Alexa, ask Jaguar if my car is fully charged’ or ‘Alexa, ask Jaguar if my doors are locked’ are just some of the features customers can use. In addition to all other Jaguar models with Pivi Pro, this functionality is also available to customers in these markets with vehicles equipped with the Touch Pro infotainment system.

As well as Alexa, the I-PACE offers a wealth of smart technologies to make journeys simpler and more enjoyable. The Smartphone Pack with wireless Apple CarPlay® is standard. Wireless Android Auto™ is also standard. In addition, Pivi Pro can connect two phones simultaneously, and an optional wireless device charging pad beneath the centre console features a signal booster to improve network reception and Wi-Fi.

And before the journey even begins, the I-PACE’s Preferred Charging Period feature enables customers to set a desired start and finish time for charging – helping them take advantage of the reduced rate electricity tariffs available in many markets. It can also let them set a specific state-of-charge they want the battery to reach – 80 per cent, for example.

Customers who wish to enhance the I-PACE’s multi-award-winning design can now choose the new Premium Black Pack option, giving I-PACE even more visual impact and presence. This brings a Gloss Black finish to the grille, grille surround, side window surrounds, door -mirror caps and rear badges, together with striking 22-inch ‘Style 5056’ split-spoke wheels finished in Gloss Black, a rear spoiler and air suspension.

I-PACE is also now available in Ostuni White for the first time. This beautiful metallic finish joins the existing range of solid, metallic and premium metallic paints.

Notes to Editors

About Jaguar

Jaguar has made dramatically beautiful luxury cars since 1935, driven by its passion to make life more extraordinary for its customers. Today's world-class Jaguar model range comprises the XE and XF saloons and XF Sportbrake, F-TYPE sports car, F-PACE performance SUV, E-PACE compact performance SUV and all-electric performance SUV, the I-PACE. From 2025 Jaguar will become a pure electric modern luxury brand with a dramatically beautiful new portfolio of emotionally engaging designs and pioneering next-generation technologies. The journey towards electrification is already under way with a range of mild and plug-in hybrid and full electric models available today.

About the Jaguar Charging app and Plugsurfing

Using the Jaguar Charging app and a single RFID card, I-PACE customers can access more than 250,000 public charging stations from over 700 providers on Plugsurfing's network. This simplifies the charging process by giving customers a single solution for public charging, which would otherwise require drivers to create separate accounts for each network. Customers have the choice of pay as you go tariffs or a subscription with a flat-rate, fixed monthly fee.

Drivers can receive their Plugsurfing RFID card from Jaguar Retailers and can access information on the charging service from a specially-branded web page and portal. The service is currently available in Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland.
