Jaguar I-Pace recall announced

Voluntary recall notice issued for the Jaguar I-Pace due to a potential brake problem

A voluntary recall notice has been issued for the Jaguar I-Pace, after the company found a potential fault that could affect the car’s regenerative braking system.

During internal testing of the I-Pace, Jaguar discovered that a failure of the regenerative braking system could lead to affected cars falling foul of regulations.

Not meeting “the regulated standard for the time to transition brake force to the friction brake system” could increase the total stopping distance, and a software update will be required to fix the problem.

Jaguar says the update will be carried out free of charge, and that “every effort will be made to minimise inconvenience to the customer during the short time required for the work to be carried out".

It isn’t clear how many examples of the I-Pace are affected, but the firm says the voluntary recall applies to all 2019 and some 2020 model-year cars.

The recall is the first real setback for the I-Pace: in April, it was crowned World Car of the Year for 2019, fending off competition from the Audi e-tron.

It has also won several other accolades, including this publication’s Best Large Electric Car prize for 2019.

The e-tron is facing a recall of its own in the UK, with a potential fire risk affecting a total of 31 cars.
