Jaguar may kill supercharged V6 to make way for inline-six

  Jaguar may kill supercharged V6 to make way for inline-six This could be the last year to score a Jaguar with the carmaker's 3.0-liter supercharged V6. Autocar reports that Jaguar deep-sixed the the XE S and XF S in the UK due to poor sales and difficulty coping with European emissions regulation changes taking place this year. The mag expects the XJ and F-Pace to lose the V6, too, but suspects the F-Type might retain the engine. It's possible, however, the bent-six with up to 380 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque might finally be retiring for a reason reported on for at least three years: To make way for a 3.

An oft-cited reason people don’t buy electric cars is “ range anxiety ” — if batteries struggle to take you as far as gas and charging stations are limited in number, the thinking goes, who would want one? But there is another obstacle: charging time trauma.

With its I-Pace electric vehicle just about ready to hit the streets, Jaguar is striving to alleviate the range anxiety that prevents many car-buyers from considering an EV for their next purchases.

The company has developed a mobile app that predicts how an electric vehicle would behave during your current vehicle use.

Mobile . Smart Home. Range anxiety — a constant nagging feeling that your electric vehicle ( EV ) doesn't have enough juice to cover your trip or make it to the next charging station — has followed drivers since the advent of consumer battery-powered vehicles.

“Making the switch to EV ownership is a big decision. We’re confident anyone who experiences the I-Pace will relish its engaging driving dynamics, performance, practicality and comfort,” said Ian Hoban, Vehicle Line Director for I-Pace. “What a test drive doesn’t show is the lower running costs and convenience of living with our electric performance SUV on a daily basis. The Go I-Pace app is designed to help potential customers make an informed decision.”

Currently available only in the UK for iPhones and coming soon for Android devices, the Go I-Pace app virtually calculates the electricity spent and how much range remains in the batteries. It also keeps track of the time the car is down to tell the owner how many times the vehicle would need to be charged per week, as well as calculating if the vehicle would need to be plugged in mid-day and for how long to top up the range.

Jaguar Debuts Electric Plans With Battery E-Type

  Jaguar Debuts Electric Plans With Battery E-Type Starting in 2020, every new Jaguar will have some form of electric power. To prove it, Jaguar built an all-electric E-Type.This post was originally published on September 7, 2017, and has been republished because of today's Royal Wedding, which you may have heard about. - Ed.

But Jaguar has added a few, critical and well-judged EV -specific elements into the in-car interface. Range anxiety ? The IP address from which the device accesses a client's website or mobile application .

Drivers can also check the data in real time to check how much money they would have saved with an electric vehicle instead of their current one, by entering their real-world fuel-economy as they drive and fill up their vehicle’s fuel tank. It uses accredited data sources (such as government information) to calculate the cost of electricity and fuel.

Statistics show that many drivers drive far fewer kilometres than they attribute to their needs for an electric vehicle, with an estimation of just 2% of most trips exceeding 80 km (which would mean that the I-Pace could complete about 98% of most daily driving needs without charging). An interactive map shows potential recharging points according to the vehicle’s location.

The app works in the background collecting information without the user having to log anything, except fuel stops. The app will prompt for confirmation of “unusual” routes, such as if the iPhone is used on a cycling run.

2021 Jaguar XK Reportedly Planned As Four-Seater F-Type

  2021 Jaguar XK Reportedly Planned As Four-Seater F-Type The 2+2 sports car is expected to be based on the next-generation F-Type due in 2019. It’s a known fact that Jaguar wants to expand its sports car portfolio beyond the F-Type lineup. How are they planning to do so? There have been recent talks of a rebooted XK to join the aforementioned F-Type as a more practical alternative with space in the back for two rear passengers. That scenario seems to be increasingly more likely if we were to rely on a new report coming from Autocar.

How to maximize electric vehicle range (and minimize range anxiety ). These projections typically change in real time , giving you an idea of how driving behavior or conditions are impacting range . Cranking the A/C may seem like a minor draw on your car’s energy supply, but in an EV , it can make

The conclusion was that range anxiety is “overblown.” Using the original Nissan Leaf with 73 miles of range as the standard, researchers proved that the time may as well be now – not some distant Nonetheless, since perception is reality , there is work for stakeholders in the EV ecosystem to do.

“It can be hard for drivers to understand how an EV would fit into their day-to-day lives. The Go I-Pace app makes this possible by providing personalised information about how the Jaguar I-Pace could work for them based on real-world data,” said EV expert and broadcast personality Robert Llewelyn, creator of the YouTube series Fully Charged. “I’ve no doubt the app will surprise many users with the scale of the potential cost savings and by revealing how little change to their driving habits I-Pace ownership would actually make.”

Llewelyn spend a week with the Go I-Pace app, logging 586 km over 19 trips and spending $115 Canadian in fuel. The Go I-Pace app calculated the costs of using an I-Pace for the same purposes would have been about $42.

The I-Pace can get an 80%-charge in 85 minutes through a public DC rapid charger or spend 10 hours plugged in at night to get batteries to the same level through the home standard AC outlet.

Jaguar moves to trademark C-Pace name .
The Jaguar C-Pace could be a crossover coupe version based on either the E-Pace or the F-Pace. The trademark application was filed on July 9, and along with car-related goods and services, the application also covers software and charging stations, even buildings. We'll keep an eye on it.
