A charge limiter is another way of describing a second or adjustable SOC% at which charging ends, like the old Leaf 80% limit. The I-Pace apparently lacks even that.
That is a feature I would have liked to have in our 2020 Eplus. I’m not sure why manufacturers (other than Tesla) are not doing this.
Bolt has had a limiter since model year 2019. Skip to ~1:37 of the video https://insideevs.com/news/339311/video ... e-control/
. I do wish I could set the lower limit to below 40%. On a very hot day, if I want battery thermal management to kick in at home, I have no choice but to waste $ charging to 40% at home if I want the thermal management or I need to have at least 40% in my battery.

Edit: also to add if you are using any type of scheduling (either in the EVSE or the car) for charging it does not count as "plugged in" when the car is not allowed to charge.
So, using a timer won't work as a workaround. :/
Prior to that, Bolt only had a "hill top reserve" toggle. When it was on, it made it stop early.... not sure of the % off the top of my head...
Kona Electric also has it. Skip to ~5:59 of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Mpz4qQW_L4
. They even have separate max charge % values for AC vs. DC charging.
