I am puzzled by units on lots too, but as I posted the sales guy said there was little advertising, no support, and he had no training including knowledge of federal and state credits. I don’t believe there is any competition at the base price if I Pace minus federal and state credits Haround 11k here in MD).

The few people I have shown the car to so far have been stunned at the performance, quality, interior and the price. So obviously the car sells itself. I think two people at work are now considering it where before seeing and driving mine they were just curious.

I did however use the zero percent financing as it’s free money. It wasn’t a determinant for me, but it may help some get into one by using 5 year no cost payments.

That is the price of a special order. Too bad JLR can't just go 24/7/365 with 0%. Everything needs to be the deal for the day.
This is exactly how everyone feels ripped off with the dealer system and roller coaster marketing incentives.

While most of the California arses are living in DC, we still have a bumper crop living in Sacramento.

Oddly, websites that filter for obscenities will *** the word for donkey, but let arse slide right past.

The slow sales could be from what's also holding me back. I did a test drive of the i-pace as soon as one was available in Houston. I'm on my third EV/PHEV vehicle, now; with home charging, so it's not like I don't have a grasp of the issues. First off, the i-pace is typical of Jags since I first became aware of the marque in the mid-50's. I absolutely adore the styling. From the XK 120 (former owner), the 3.8 S-type to the E-type; they are sublime. They have also had English electrics (I've had 3 MG's, 1 Austin Healy 100-4, Daimler SP 250, XK-120 and a '74 RR Silver Shadow) and that's why I haven't owned any English car for many, many years. The electrics just were never reliable, never mind the oil leaks. I'm replacing my two PHEV's next year and the i-Pace is on the list--probably head of the list based on it's looks and driving experience. That's why I'm watching the owner experience on this forum VERY carefully. An all-electric English car--what's to worry? To date, I'm not impressed. I see a lot of electrical problems. The display i-Pace at the Houston Auto Show displayed a message: "Electrical Charging Fault" on the center console. But, I've got a year to wait and see. I wonder if others are doing the same thing?

In a way, that is sort of the problem with these forums— People can get a skewed idea of the i-Pace as much of the discussion is about problems or perceived problems. I haven’t had any problems yet, however I am sympathetic to those that have. Unfortunately other express buyer’s remorse through picking at minor quirks.

Ted99– go for it!
