Lack of over-the-air updates forces Jaguar to conduct an ordinary recall of the I-PACE to solve a software issue related to a regenerative brake system failure.
NHTSA announced that 3,083 Jaguar I-PACE (2019 and 2020 model year) ares potentially affected by a regenerative braking system issue.
According to the description, "if the electrical regenerative brake system fails, there will be an increased delay between when the driver brakes and when the vehicle decelerates."
The remedy will be a software update at the dealerships - a clear example of how important the over-the-air-software updates might be these days.
A delay in deceleration, increases the distance needed to stop and the risk of a crash.
