As more and more automakers add all-electric vehicles to their lineups, Jaguar is upgrading the EV range of one of its models — but lower your expectations. The I-Pace picks up an estimated 12 miles of all-electric range, and there are some caveats.

The all-wheel-drive SUV is Jaguar’s first all-electric vehicle and has an EPA-estimated electric range of 234 miles from its 90-kilowatt-hour battery pack. The additional range would ostensibly bump that figure to 246 miles, but Jaguar says the model’s official certified range figure won’t change because the potential increase depends on how the vehicle is used. Range can vary because of driving style, climate-control use, highway versus city driving and other factors.

The potential extra range comes courtesy of the innovations made to the I-Pace that competed in the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy Championship race series, which purports to be the world’s first all-electric production-based international race series. The automaker said it modified that vehicle’s software to optimize the management of battery, thermal and all-wheel-drive systems to enhance the efficiency of the powertrain, and these changes are now available for the production version.

The software updates are free and available now. Interested customers can take their vehicle to a Jaguar dealer to receive the software updates. Jaguar said the range update will also enable enhanced software-over-the-air functionality, which means more of the vehicle’s software systems will be able to be updated remotely in the future.
