Jaguar I-Pace batteries are enjoying a “second life” as part of a portable zero-emission energy storage device.
His portable charger is powered by batteries recovered from Jaguar I-Pace.
Called the Off Grid Battery Energy Storage System (ESS), they say it will be made from 85pc of Jaguar electric hardware.
That will include the module and the wiring. What is left is then recycled into the supply chain.
This device has been developed in cooperation with electrical equipment manufacturer Pramac. According to JLR, it has a capacity of up to 125kWh, which is enough to power a house for a week.
It can discharge at speeds up to 22kW and has a Type 2 connector compatible with most EVs.
No word on availability or pricing.
This is the first device in Jaguar Land Rover’s plan to create new circular economy business models for its automobiles.
