Dateline Whitley, UK - June 23rd 2020

The 2021 MY Jaguar I-PACE now delivers even more technology to make living the electric life simpler and more rewarding than ever. This is the first Jaguar to feature the new Pivi Pro infotainment system. As intuitive to use as a smartphone, Pivi Pro is fast and responsive with enhanced EV navigation that can show you if nearby charging stations are available or in use, what they cost, and how long it will take to charge (market-dependent).

I-PACE now comes with an 11kW on-board charger as standard, enabling customers with access to three-phase electricity supplies to enjoy significantly faster charging: when connected to an 11kW wall box 53km/33 miles* of range (WLTP) per hour can be achieved, while a full charge from empty now takes only 8.6 hours – ideal for overnight charging at home. Customers in single-phase markets using 7kW wallboxes also benefit from competitive charging capability – up to 35km/22 miles of charge per hour, with a full charge taking 12.75 hours.  When charging ‘on the go’, a 50kW charger will add up to 63km/39 miles in 15 minutes, whilst a 100kW charger will add up to 127km/78 miles over the same period.

With a focus on air quality, occupant well-being is prioritised, with cabin air ionisation now featuring PM2.5 filtration to capture ultrafine airborne particles and allergens. The I-PACE can even filter its cabin air before a journey begins.

The exterior design is enhanced with a new Atlas Grey grille tip finish and customers benefit from an enhanced paint palette, new range of wheels, and a luxurious new Bright Pack option, available on all models in the I-PACE range.

Dateline Pretoria – March 30th 2020:

Jaguar Land Rover South Africa has made 11 vehicles available to the South African Red Cross Society (SARCS) in order to keep the organisation mobile in its efforts to control and minimise the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). The vehicles, which come from Jaguar Land Rover’s Experience and marketing fleets, have been supplied free of charge and will be dispatched nationwide to boost transport capacity for SARCS. Red Cross volunteers will now be deployed to critical areas where they will engage communities and educate on how the virus is transmitted and how to avoid risks.

In many vulnerable areas the South African population has limited access to mainstream media and social platforms such as TV, Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp which provide instant communication and updates of COVID-19. SARCS will use alternative communication methods such as megaphones to conduct mass community education and awareness while observing the social distance prevention rule. The main focus areas for SARCS will be on hygiene promotion which entails, hand washing and sanitising techniques, information dissemination and awareness creation, demystifying myths on COVID-19, and the distribution of masks and gloves.

The vehicles will also help the Red Cross in its crucial role of contact tracing. Trained volunteers will identify those who have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, test those people, and then trace their footsteps to identify anyone they have been in contact with if they test positive. In addition to these activities the Red Cross will provide support to affected families, distribute food parcels, buy groceries and feed homeless people.

Dateline Midrand - March 15th 2019

After more than three years in the making, the world’s biggest Jaguar Land Rover EXPERIENCE facility is now open in the heart of Johannesburg’s northern suburbs. What was once a rustic venue in the middle of a 14-hectare Lonehill veld is now a state-of-the-art lifestyle destination where families are welcome to visit and enjoy the many memorable experiences on offer. A wide variety of activities for any age group are designed to showcase not only the entire range of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles, but also the lifestyles that go along with them.

The reception area of the Welcome Centre is divided into two separate brand display zones for Jaguar and Land Rover respectively. Here visitors can get up close and personal with Jaguar Land Rover’s latest products, technology showcases and branded goods ranges. The beauty of the EXPERIENCE Johannesburg facility, however, is that the range can be trialed on a variety of test tracks through a selection of Experience drives. The property is home to the Kingsley Holgate Expedition Trail – 3km of off-road tracks named as an homage to the long-time friend and global ambassador of the Land Rover brand. There’s also an Adventure Park adjacent to the main building where a series of tailor-made obstacles are designed to put the world’s most capable off-road vehicles to the test in plain view of EXPERIENCE visitors.

A 70-metre diameter skidpan, or Dynamic Steering Circle, with central irrigation is on site for low-traction handling exercises, while a 185-metre long and 30-metre wide Dynamic Handling Platform will allow drivers to stretch the legs of various vehicles at higher speeds. All driving courses are hosted by Jaguar Land Rover’s team of skilled EXPERIENCE instructors. There’s no need to book driving courses to enjoy the EXPERIENCE Johannesburg facilities, as TLC on the Track restaurant, ideally placed on the main building’s upper level, is open to the public for walk-ins from 8am to 5pm, seven days a week. TLC specialises in South African-inspired dishes for breakfast and lunch with a vast menu catering for all tastes.

Kids are catered for too with a host of free activities including a miniature “Growler” racetrack where tiny electric Jaguar F-TYPEs can be raced around by children up to age 5. Kiddies aged 3-12 can also gain some valuable off-roading skills at the wheels of quarter-scale electric Land Rover Defenders on a purpose-built off-road track. These activities, along with a jungle gym, and remote-controlled miniature Defenders will be held under the watchful eyes of permanent child minders, so parents can enjoy experiences of their own.

A pair of Personalisation Studios – one for Jaguar and one for Land Rover respectively – take the familiar process of configuring vehicles online to the next level. Here visitors can build digital versions of their dream cars via large touchscreens, together with a massive selection of colour and material swatches which are digitally realised in vivid, full colour displays. EXPERIENCE Johannesburg also features a range of facilities ideal for use by special arrangement by other businesses for product launches, events, conferences, casual meetings or team-building days. A 52-seat cinema room can be used along with a selection of conference rooms and private boardrooms with seating for between eight and 50 guests.
