Fun car to play with. Unlike some EV's, the I-Pace can turn TC/SC off, you can powerbrake it (two pedal driving), and it has a primitive track computer that measures G-forces, pedal position history, and lap times. Not a replacement for a real track computer, but better than nothing, which is what EVs normally have.
I brought to an AutoX and stunned a lot of folk. When we left at lunch, we were still the 2nd fastest car out of about 40 entries, but in full disclosure, the track was very wet, and I'm an amateur racer. Only a well-prepped track Miata beat me. I lapped quicker than a Corvette Stingray, a few Mustangs and Camaros, an Audi R8 (paper plate, the driver was probably green), all the BMWs stock or otherwise, a few FRS/BRZ's, other Miatas. It was certainly the heaviest car there. It did better than the WRX's too.
Now... It understeers a good amount, which is a common AWD trait, especially in heavy cars. With TC/SC off, you can make it oversteer too. It will go faster with TC/SC off by a good amount.
Not a track car, but certainly a fun car. Not numb like the Model S Tesla.
