Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Australia has issued a recall for the all-electric I-Pace crossover from the 2019 and 2020 model years, over concerns that any potential failure of the regenerative braking system could lead to reduced responsiveness in the conventional friction braking system.
Such an event would increase the vehicle's braking distance, posing a hazard to the vehicle occupants and other road users.
JLR has confirmed to CarAdvice, however, that failure of the regenerative braking system is considered unlikely, with this recall announced merely as a further safeguard.
A total of 143 vehicles are affected by this recall, which were available for sale from 23 August 2017 through 11 April 2019 – the VIN list for these units is available here.
Owners of the recalled I-Pace models will be contacted by Jaguar's local division, and will be advised to present their vehicle to their local dealer for a software upgrade.
For more information, contact 1300 787 803.
