Picked up the milk float  :y
Which model Mark?

21MY so newer infotainment and electrical architecture


Are these big changes MrDTM? From what I'd read, the infotainment on the previous version was pretty good. Do and of the electrical changes affect range/charging performance?

Totally new infotainment system (PIVI as launched on Defender - much slicker and faster) with full system Software over the air, new amps, speakers, telematics, ADAS (surround cams are standard) etc.

Some software tweaks to the drive train to increase range a little, better charging options (now supports three phase type 2 7kW charger support added)

A 'work perk' with salary sacrifice making it very affordable on a three year deal  :y

Small might be a relative concept given your recent progress :y

Rear legroom is something I'd need to check out

Picked up the milk float  :y
Which model Mark?

Jaguar I-Pace HSE in blue with black pack, glass roof and two tone alloys. 21MY so newer infotainment and electrical architecture



That said, I have not really driven it yet, cant get the wife away from it  ;D

This is a fine motor car. Blue is certainly preferable to the taxi white or wedding car white of the model I had on loan for the day. :y

I quite like the look of it even if it does appear quite generic.

A good petrol V8 would make it better but perhaps I'm missing the point. :)

Nice! I've not heard anything about the new infotainment on the defender, but given the positive news the last installation got, it should be excellent.

3 phase charging is good, but what's the need if it's limited to 7kw? Or is it primarily aimed at other markets that runnkess than 230v?

It seems that we're dinosaurs.

..and speaking of dinosaurs, I suppose, rather than burning them in engines, the millennials would rather have us apologising profusely for their extinction due to climate change. ::)

Up to 7kw is single phase, 22kw+ on three phase which is much sought after in Europe and quite common as a public faster charger solution  :y

Well, their demise was only about 65 million years ago.......so middle aged white men are almost certainly to blame. :)
