Another Negative Review

Not a big reviewer, but the software killed the car again. I really hope Jaguar is paying attention and fixing our cars so they don't end up a footnote in history!

electrek's opinion is about as valid as a review by Lord Elon Musk himself.

Agree. I don’t mind negative reviews with objectivity, but these guys... not so much.

Fred is a Tesla Referral Points blog site owner. He is in it for Tesla Points for Free Stuff. I think he might have forgot to tell Jaguar that.

Love how he mashed the hood with the key fob for no reason. I don't think he's a car person.

You should have heard him whining about the fact he doesn't know how to use a SAE Combo charger. That was comedy. Same car, different video.

"Doesn't feel like 4.5s to 60 mph." Fred, you could have spent $0 dollars on a cellphone app and tested it.

How can anyone see this as a reputable source of information when one of the hosts is literally drinking a beer for the last eight minutes of it lol. He's entitled to his opinion but the bias is noticeable almost immediately.

Honestly not knowing anything it was obvious they had an opinion/bias going in, they leaned on negatives a lot, and in some ways didn't even act like they are serious about this review. So a strange vibe.

Also on another note having driven the various Teslas (and owning an original Roadster which is really a Lotus Elise so it doesn't count) I have no idea why people like them so much. I liked my Leaf and Bolt both better than any S/X/3 I've driven, the cars feel numb and project car in handling and feel. Yes they are "fast" but if that's all that matter go buy a souped up American car...oh wait.

The New Jersey MFR plate means it's one of the first 200 cars used for testing. The biggest changes were to the infotainment system and the EVSE vs the retail cars. IIRC, it might not have CarPlay / AA.

His SUV complaint really depends on how you define an SUV. Is it a Bronco I/II? A Blazer 1/II? An International Scout? Or a Suburban?
Few "SUVs" qualify if a Suburban is your yardstick. It seats 8, 9, or 10 depending on the year and can haul 4x8" plywood and tow a racecar trailer with ease.

SUV v1 - A 4x4 with adequate off-road abilities that seats at least 4 and has an enclosed luggage area.
SUV Classic - A pickup chassis with an enclosed bed, and at least 3 rows of seating for adults. These existed prior to the SUV terminology.

An I-Pace is the closest EV to a v1 style. It has Land Rover DNA mixed with EV tech, and Jaguar road tech.

All these sites that focus on Teslas have produced crap reviews. So yes, bias.

The I-Pace really is a crossover in style, but with the air suspension, it has Range Rover off-road ability. These labels don't matter one bit, though.

OMG! He's drinking during a car review!
