Smart Columbus EV Initiative

About Smart Columbus

Smart Columbus was founded after Columbus won the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Smart City Challenge over 77 other competing cities. Amplified by the investments of the Columbus private and public sectors, more than $500 million in investments have been committed to transforming our region into an epicenter for mobility innovation. Through our collaboration with Smart Columbus, Jaguar Easton will strive to improve and grow access to the EV charging network and better educate our clients on the advantages of driving an electric vehicle.

The Future of Mobility

Smart Columbus EV Initiative
  • The transportation sector generates the largest share of greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Our current transportation infrastructure is costly. The Federal Highway Administration Budget was $47B in one year.
  • According to Inrix, the cost of congestion per driver is $990.
  • 10 million of all vehicles sold last year had connected technology. This will increase to 30 million this year.
  • Autonomous driving investments in research and development are rapidly growing amongst manufacturers. A total of $60M of federal grant funding has resulted in 8 new cities launching AV pilots in 2019.
  • Global carmakers are expected to invest at least $90 billion in electric vehicles.

  • Cost of Charging – It’s far less expensive to power a car with electricity compared to gasoline. If you drive 10,000 miles per year, you can save up to $75 each month. That’s a total of $900 per year!
  • Cost of Maintenance – Fewer moving parts means fewer components to wear or break down. Since EVs have 1/100th the moving parts of a combustion engine vehicle, they offer far fewer headaches and a far less expensive maintenance bill.
  • Battery Warranty – Drive with total peace of mind from knowing that your new EV uses a state-of-the-art battery that can last for decades. Better still, manufacturers offer comprehensive warranty coverage for the batter which lasts a minimum of 8 years of 100,000 miles.
  • Tax Credits – When you purchase an all-electric vehicle or a plug-in hybrid, you could potentially qualify for a tax credit of up to $7,500. It’s never been more affordable to join the all-electric revolution.
  • Charging Availability – There are over 100 public charging stations in central Ohio. Thanks to Smart Columbus and its partners like AEP, we’re working together to install a total of more than 900 chargers by the end of 2020. You can download the PlugShare app and discover all of the available charging stations near your home or office.
  • Residential Charging – It’s no secret that the easiest and most convenient type of charging occurs at home. Every EV comes standard with a Level 1 charger that’s able to plug into any standard 120V outlet. You also have the option to install a Level 2 charger from a 240V dryer outlet. The City of Columbus Division of Power, IGS, and AEP all have programs to help simplify installing an at-home charging station.

Jaguar I-PACE

2020 Jaguar I-PACE Charging Station

Starting at $69,850 MSRP*

As the first all-electric vehicle from Jaguar, the award-winning I-PACE is engineered with an aerodynamically-efficient design and an advanced electric powertrain. Offering far more than outstanding efficiency, instantaneous electric response from its standard 90 kWh Lithium-Ion Battery and two permanent magnet synchronous electric motors allows the I-PACE to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.5 seconds.

Driving an electric vehicle no longer means making compromises on interior space and comfort with the Jaguar I-PACE. Premium amenities found inside the cabin include contrast twin-needle stitching, crisp white illumination, and acoustic laminated glass for superlative refinement. For personalized comfort, you’ll have the ability to pre-heat or pre-cool the interior of the I-PACE via the touchscreen or remotely using a dedicated smartphone app.

Next-generation EV technology and zero tailpipe emissions illustrate how the Jaguar I-PACE represents the future of electric travel. It’s also accommodating to your busy lifestyle thanks to convenient, hassle-free charging capabilities. With a 50 kW DC rapid charger — the kind found at most public charging stations — the I-PACE can achieve a 0-80% charge in 85 minutes. A 7 kW single-phase AC onboard charger can fully recharge the vehicle overnight when using a Jaguar approved home charger.If you’re ready to experience the efficiency and exhilaration that comes from driving an electric vehicle, Jaguar Easton is standing by to introduce you to the I-PACE. We’re doing our part to help lead the way for all-electric travel in Columbus.
