Debunking the Misconceptions of Driving an Electric Vehicle
Whitley, UK: Jaguar has today launched an intelligent app designed to help motorists experience life with an electric vehicle (EV), before actually owning one.
The Go I-PACE app captures journey data to calculate potential cost savings, shows how much battery would be used per trip and tell users how many charges they would need in a week if they were driving the I-PACE.
In recent years, there has been a worldwide acceptance of electric vehicles, with over 1.9 million battery electric vehicles used globally in 2017. China is currently ranked as the largest market for all-electric vehicles, though countries like the US and Norway are also growing considerably, often triggered by government incentives such as subsidies and exemption from toll and parking fees.
According to recent reports by ‘The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders’ (SMMT), many British drivers are still mistrustful or confused when it comes to pure electric cars. Research has shown that more than 52% of consumers are interested in purchasing electric cars, but hesitate due to concerns such finding a charging spot, or not feeling like they know enough about how an EV actually works.
As a result, Jaguar has teamed up with Presenter and Creator of Fully Charged Show Robert Llewelyn, to help customers realise the benefits and simplicity of actually owning an electric vehicle.
Robert commented: “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. 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.”
With many governments around the world, including the UK, intending to cut emissions and improve air quality by 2030, the Go I-PACE app gives motorists the chance to prepare for the future.
The app is free to download and available now on Apple devices, and will be coming soon for Android: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/go-i-pace/id1397794566?mt=8
