A very comfortable and ergonomically designed car. You’ll love the performance and drive from the vehicle and the take off from 0-60 is very impressive around the 4.5 second mark. I’ve got to be honest there’s not much more to say positively about the vehicle. I actually prefer not to use it because of the electronics on it. Using the same charger and cables etc the Jaguar charges at 14mi/ph on a 7kw charger. You’ll also find it charges exceedingly slowly on a super charger. So watch out for parking fines, of which I have had many. In comparison the Tesla charges, using the same charger and lead at 30mi/ph. So the Tesla is almost twice as fast at filling the tank at home. Range boasted by Jaguar is heading up to the 300 mile mark. That sounds great, but the reality is nearer 150 – 160 miles. Remember you’ll also be charging it much slower than other vehicles so plan your journey well. In my experience of electric cars, the Jaguar is one to keep close to home. I recently drove from Chiswick to Wakefield, a distance of 185 miles up the M1. It did make it with just 7 miles left in the battery but that was driving the entire distance without exceeding 40mph. Other annoying features include a charging flap on the passenger side that is very easy to overlook after charging. The usual scenario is to remove your charge lead and wrap it up. Pop it in the frunk and jump in the drivers door. Most other electric cars have some form of electronic auto close on the flap so for an 80k purchase it’s a little disappointing. All the other usual lovely refinements in the cockpit and typical of the Landrover Jaguar mark. I just won’t be buying another Jaguar electric, they’re just a country mile away from where an electric vehicle needs to be.
