A week after my first test drive, I purchased an I-Pace from Cole in Walnut Creek the day after someone walked away from a lease deal, so THANK YOU, whoever you were. Color and options were close enough (gotta have heated seats and best sound).
After driving a loaner E-Pace for a month, only casual observers could mistake that for an I-Pace. Totally better driving experience and comfort as $80k vs $50k expects. Car business is competitive and Corporate doesn't want to be managing sale of 3 year old lease return EV vehicles when the product cycle changes rapidly. My Chevy Volt depreciated over 40% in 2 years. Steve
