That sucks. They should pull cellphone records. If the phone was in use, make it a 2 point offense like reckless driving, which technically, it is. Reckless is a catchall CVC for any behavior considered dangerous that is not outlined in other CVCs. It has the effect of DUI/502/DWI to your DL and insurance.

I took a closer look today. I think there are three panels that are damaged and possibly one sensor. The panels are all plastic I think. I managed to put a couple grommets back together and now nothing is egregiously loose. Will be able to drive it until it can be fixed. Curious how long parts will take. This thing is a tank.

Yes, good advice. In this case, I'm certain no cell phone was in play ...

So sorry, Sciencegeek. I can't imagine how sick and angry you must be. Was the Mercedes driver just following too close or not paying attention? E350 doesn't have advanced emergency braking?

Same here, sorry for damage and hassle. Obviously correctable as no one was hurt but nonetheless.

Ouch!

So here's the story. I'm stopped at a red light. Light turns green. Guy in front of me doesn't go for a couple of seconds and I remain stopped. Obviously. Suddenly, *Whack!*.
The person who rear-ended me kept asking "The light turned green, why didn't he go" to which I replied "I have no idea but it's irrelevant. You rear-ended me." Weird.

So sorry to hear that your I-Pace was injured. Hopefully, you werent harmed.
On the plus side, the I-Pace is so new that I doubt there are 3rd party parts suppliers for the body panels. So, your I-Pace should get OEM replacement parts.
