New Member, Considering I-Pace.

Hello All,

Been lurking as a guest the past couple of weeks. Just recently started researching EVs and the I-Pace definitely has my attention. Im not in the market just yet, but the short time Ive been researching has really opened my eyes (and mind) to the possibilities of EV ownership. I want to thank members in advance for the valuable information shared here.

Welcome, Asindc. I can't recommend one car over another because I don't know your preferences or requirements but switching to an EV will make it likely that you'll never want an internal combustion engine car again. Take a close look at the I-Pace because it's a fantastic drive.

I'll second CurtSprings - I've had an I-Pace for almost 2 months and now when I drive an ICE car it feels... wrong. The sensation of a transmission shifting gears makes me uncomfortable (with the exception of sporty manuals that I will always love). Drove my wife's GLE to be serviced this morning and it was like "what fresh **** is this?"

Yup. A little over a month with mine and it is like going to the first talking movie. You realize this is the start of a real change.

Echoing everyone else: Once you go EV, it's curtains for ICE.

Oh yeah, very enthusiastic endorsement for EVs (and the I-Pace in particular).



Smooth effortless (and very quick) acceleration. Easy over-night recharging at home (full tank every morning, if you like).


No noise, vibration, or smelly exhaust.


For the I-Pace, first scheduled maintenance visit is at 21,000 miles! No oil changes, no filters, no belts, no spark plugs, no muffler, no complex fuel injection system or transmission.


The EV driving and ownership experience is so so beautiful.

Just watch a few YouTube reviews and when the driver "hammers it" or "gives it the beans" they all laugh and have big grins. I would recommend a test drive.

Here's what I like about EVs:

It refuels while I sleep. I wake up with a full tank anytime I want. People talk about EVs taking 45 minutes to charge on the road every 150 miles or so, but for most of your driving EVs take LESS time to refuel, which is virtually zero. How much time I have spent fueling my I-Pace this month? 0 minutes. Not critical, but how much $ per 1,000 miles? $0.00 if fueled at work. $.04/mile if fueled at home, or $40.00.

Gobs of torque. The power is right where you need it the most for public roads. Puts a grin on your face.

You can run the A/C or heater in a closed garage. Remote starting is a natural and a given.

No emissions checks. Ever. Big power, no worries.

No oil changes or significant maintenance. Brakes tend to last a VERY long time if the car has blended brakes.

Low CG and the handling advantages that come with it.

----------------------------

Why the I-Pace? For me, it is the most advanced and comfortable EV to date. Just the right blend of luxury, performance, size, and price. I never considered a "Crossover/CUV/SUV" before. The I-Pace handles and feels like a 4,000lb performance sedan, with plenty of room in the back seats for full sized adults, and enough cargo capacity for runs to the airport or trips home from Costco. While I have not used the Snow/Ice/Dirt/Sand systems, it's nice to know it has them.

My local dealer (Penske/Cerritos Jaguar) has $699/month lease on an "S" I-Pace. However, the total miles is only 22,500.
