Enhanced Regenerative Braking in the 2019 Jaguar I-PACE

The impressive, forward-thinking new 2019 Jaguar I-PACE has more than a few tricks up its sleeve--and its advanced, enhanced regenerative braking system is just one of them.

Regenerative braking isn't necessarily anything new; it's a tech feature that hybrids have been relying on for years, a way to use the power of stopping the massive weight of a car toward its own benefit.

The I-PACE, though, in classic Jaguar fashion, does it better.

As soon as the driver lifts off the accelerator, the Enhanced Brake Regeneration system inside the new Jaguar I-PACE efficiently converts available kinetic energy to electricity to charge the battery and extend range.

The regenerative braking of the I-PACE can be tweaked for your driving preferences. If you set it to the most conservative settings, you can actually enjoy "one-pedal driving": as soon as you take your foot off of the accelerator, the braking system will kick in and slow the vehicle, capturing energy all the while. The only time you'd need to use the brake at all would be in sudden-stop situations.

However, you can set the levels of regenerative braking to a subtler response, for a drive that feels more typical of a non-hybrid.
