Jaguar I-Pace Recalled Over An Issue With Its High-Tech Brakes | Carscoops

Jaguar is conducting a global recall of the I-Pace that includes certain 2019 and 2020 model year vehicles. It’s unknown how many of them are found in the United States, but the company only sold 1,181 units here in total, from October 2018 to April 2019.

The total number of potentially affected units made public by the NHTSA is 3,083. All of them have an electrical regenerative braking issue, as the system could fail, causing a delay and prolonging stopping distances. As a result, the electric SUV fails to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.

“The driver will experience a momentary reduction of deceleration at the moment of loss of electrical regenerative braking, until the foundation brakes function. This concern does not impact the foundation braking functionality”, the NHTSA explained in the description of the issue. Additionally, “stopping distance may be extended and could increase the risk of a crash”, they added. There have been no recorded reports of accidents or injuries related to this condition.

In order to fix the issue, technicians will update the software free of charge. The planned owner notification date announced by the feds is July 1, with the repairs to be carried out subsequently. Owners of the I-Pace (which won the 2019 European Car of the Year and 2019 World Car of the Year, as well as the Car Design and Green Car categories) can reach out to Jaguar at 1-800-637-6837, or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236, and learn more about the recall.
