Should I buy an electric Jaguar?

Should I buy an electric car? One of the most relevant and current questions being asked at the moment. We are here to help answer some of your questions, and put your mind at ease with any doubts you may have about going electric, and to help determine whether an electric Jaguar is in fact the right car for you. 

With the increasing environmental concerns, electric cars are increasing in popularity. The transition from fuel to electric may seem like a large step, but in fact, opting for an EV (electric vehicle) or plug-in hybrid has never been easier.

‘PHEVs and EVs do not have the range for my daily commute’

A big concern may be that a PHEV or EV will not cover your daily commute, when in fact, our Jaguar F-PACE PHEV has a range of up to 33 miles in all-electric mode. This makes the F-PACE perfect for shorter journeys, such as your drive to work, with zero local emissions.

You may say: ‘My journey to work is more than 33 miles’. Well, what about our first all-electric SUV, the Jaguar I-PACE? With a range of up to 292 miles*, the I-PACE has enough range for an average week of commuting on just one charge.

Jaguar Charging

Whilst people often speak about ‘range anxiety’, the vast majority of PHEV and EV drivers charge their vehicles up overnight at home via a wallbox charger, ensuring the battery is full and ready to go when you’re ready to leave in the morning.

Not to mention that there are public charging points all around you should you need to ‘top-up’ on charge whilst out and about - why not take a look yourself with You can locate the different charging points that surround you and your daily commute, or plan for a charging stop should you be going further afield. 

‘EVs cannot be driven or charged in the rain’

Before entering the market, EVs have to adhere to strict technical regulations to ensure these vehicles are safe for you to drive and charge. These strict rules also consist of safe charging and driving in a range of weather conditions, just as your current petrol or diesel car does. Rest assured that your Jaguar I-PACE and any Jaguar electric hybrid can be driven or charged in the rain.


‘It takes too long to charge an EV’

Charging can be completed at home, overnight, with an electric car charging point, so you need not worry about timings when you are asleep. Alternatively, if you were unable to fully charge your car at night, it’s easy to find a nearby public charging point.

A coffee shop is one example for you to search for on, or even on the Zap Map website and App. You can stop, take a break for 20-30 minutes, enjoy a coffee and stretch your legs while your Jaguar I-PACE or Jaguar PHEV is charging. Charging has never been easier.

How to maximise your electric range by adapting your driving style

Fully charged in 12.75 hours^ with a 7KW AC home charger, the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE SUV has a whopping range of up to 292 miles*, reaching 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.
