That looks like a sweet ride! And 1935 - First Edition, right?

My first was a 1969 Chrysler Newport - no classic, but it's now far closer to a 1935 than to a 2019 model year I-Pace. Where does the time go?

That Moris is pimp! I would totally drive that.


If anyone has a super cheap Ford Slant Back, and a crashed leaf... we could combine them into a Ford Slant back EV!



You can get a CPO with 2yr or some have 4 year 50,000. And yes, those stupid doors on the X is part of why you need a warranty!
I'm really hoping the Y has.. Ohh.. I don't know... CAR DOORS. Even the handles on the 3 are stupid and a hassle. It's a car door handle. Making it a 'work of art' just makes it HARDER TO USE.


I've not personally experienced any lengthy part waits, but I assume Jag being a bigger company can produce more parts faster.
With the features my wife will get in the next 4-6 weeks with AP, it will be exciting to see. I enjoy driving, but man is AP nice when you're bumper to bumper at 70 mph in 3 lanes across and tired... because that's not driving. Driving is no one else on a winding road, good visibility, and generous use of the GO pedal in a (safe) manner...


Does anyone know when the official EPA numbers drop for the ipace? They can't sell it until those exist, correct?

When we did a major house make-over recently we went out of our way to choose devices that needed no explanation for house guests ...

... went to stay with family in their new smart rebuild recently. The instruction briefing made picking up a Tesla with AutoPilot-and-all-the-Tech handover seem like a breeze!

Taps that have an on/off hot/cold selector knob that defied logic, plus a "ring" that you can single or double push down, and then turn sideways, for filtered drinking, or boiling, water ... IMHO an accident waiting to happen, especially as the Blue/Red LEd was invisible in direct sunlight ...

We also having Filtered Drinking and Boiling Taps, separate to the main taps, and the only gotcha is that the boiling tap has a child-proof knob.

All the Home Automation stuff we installed had to pass the "Could my elderly Mother in law use it ..."

I hate all this differentiation-for-the-sake of it that Marketing come up with and, as a slow-processing/Dyslexic person, put me at risk from the variability causing me to potentially fail to process the salient information in time. Only yesterday saw a Mini with a turn-signal in the ring of day-light-running-light around the headlight. it definitely took me "longer than reasonable" to figure that it was flashing orange ...

90kWh battery, slightly less good CD than Model-S, slightly better, more modern, motors.

My Model-S is a 90, and the Performance, but at 100% charge I get 220 real-world-miles on a not-overly-hot Summer's day at 75-80 MPH cruise. I reckon Jag will be there-or-there-abouts

Man, that's awful. I want drinking water not to scald my mouth open!
Yea, some stuff is just needlessly complex. the reason the iPhone is successful is in part due to the hours and hours spent making a complex task.. simple.
When I borrowed a F350 this week I was overwhelmed by not only the number of buttons, but all the things I had to do to make it work!
I also tried to turn around in my yard, after heavy rain so I now have a huge ditch where the tires spun. ugh... lol can't win.


I have a rather heavy foot, and drove my S such that I'd wreck a set of rear tires in 7500-9000 miles... Averaged 370 wH/mile.
I just can't see how the iPace is 240 at 90kWh and the X is 240 at 75kWh... and the X is bigger...

I hope this means the iPace is a TRUE 240 miles as I know there is no way in **** I'd get 240 from a X75D...

Seems reasonable to me. Forgot to mention in earlier than the 90 battery in Tesla is quite a bit less than 90, so if i-Pace is 90kWh then 240 real-world miles seems entirely reasonable.

Despite unlimited number of Mates-Demos on Insane in the first year I got 40,000 miles out of the first set of tyres ... surprised me. AWD though, and they never ever spin

My best spot, if I am lucky to be first-at-the-stop-light, is a big roundabout near here which has 1st exit uphill slip onto highway. Its a reasonably sharp 90-degree ... My S will take "launch" happily with no loss of traction, and seemingly no loss of acceleration (compared to straight lien). I love it if there is something exciting behind me ... I'm up the slip and onto the highway before they have even made it to the bottom of the slip. Hopefully they have all been suitably impressed and already put down a deposit on an EV

Awesome. I miss my S. Sometimes I'd leave a green light, and NOT punch it, just you know... go... and I'd look in my rear view and see cars, and think... ohh, crap, was that actually GREEN?!



Yea, I think my S85 was really only like 79kWh or something. I think the 90 and 100 were closer to the "badge". Or maybe that's the 75. In any case, Tesla stock did very well Thursday for me


I'd like to see a side by side of all the Tesla models and the ipace, for a size diagram. But I'm not talented enough to make one. The 3 is fun, but I know it's just not big enough for me. 2 dogs + cargo results in a tight fit...

More than once now I've had to call the hotel front desk to ask how to turn on the shower. Five minutes of pulling, pushing, squeezing, and twisting things is about my limit before I give up. Figuring out a rental car is more challenging every year, even gas guzzlers. Often simple is good.

I hear this is what Elon is planning for the Model Y:
