15,000 mile report on the I-Pace.
I ordered my I-Pace in June 2018, IIRC. I took delivery in November 2018. It is Photon Red First Edition with 20" wheels.
I tend to drive a car harder than many folk do. I've taken the I-Pace to the dragstrip, and autocrossed it. I floor it every day. It will go past the advertised 124mph, about 127-128mph, and the speedo reads shy, not optimistic. No serious offroad, just light snow in the mountains, and driving up curbs and across dirt fields. I've DCFC charged it about two dozen times.
Still fun to drive, still puts a smile on my face. Still gets looks, complements, questions, and folk wanting discuss EVs in general. At least 3-4 times each week.
Paint is still great, no chips.
No squeaks, leaks, or panel alignment issues.
Interior is still in excellent shape, nothing has broken or loosened.
Tires are about 50%, time to rotate them.
Range is about 200 miles when Driven Like A Jaguar. It has never been a problem even once. I've taken a 1,600 mile roundtrip through the southwestern US deserts, covering California, Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. Charging was not a serious issue, but WHY DON'T EV CHARGING STATIONS HAVE ROOFS FOR RAIN???? EVgo is the only one I've seen so far.
It went in for an A/C leak. They fixed it.
It went in for a reflash, which had little effect except it stopped the Black Screen issue.
To enhance rear visibility, remove the L and R side rear headrests and store them. Easy to do, and makes a big difference. Or just leave the rear seats down.
My opinion? This is my favorite car so far for urban duties. I have faster, I have larger, I have smaller cars. Cars with more and less amenities. But the Jaguar fits me and my lifestyle like a glove.
