Smile Attention grabber

I've had people casually walk up and ask questions, but this was unexpected.

I stopped at a UPS store yesterday and conducted business. When done, the clerk turned to a woman who had entered the store after me and ask "May I help you?" Her reply "No. I came in to ask him some questions about his car." while pointing at me.

She had come from the business next door. She said everyone in the place had noticed the car when I parked it and they all wanted to know what it is.

Then the UPS store people looked out and gave the usual "Wow! That looks great!" reaction.

I explained what it is while all of them stood there looking out the window (not at me) gaping at it.

The woman couldn't take her eyes off of it as she walked back to her place of business.

I have to confess my bride had four different people stop her in NorCal today alone and ask about the car and check it out. That's never happened to us before.

None of them knew what it was. We live in an area teaming with Teslas.

It was kind of cool, actually.

Does anyone even look at a Tesla? Maybe when falcon doors open on an X, but that's it.
Tesla are beautiful cars but how many years can people see anything without being desensitized to it?

To me, I-Pace is one of the most unique and beautiful cars that is not an exotic.
Hats off the Ian Callum and Jaguar for have vision to create this

I finally saw one in Seattle proper today, the Photon Red. It really is a striking car, especially when seen in traffic with other cars. Can't recommend the Photon Red enough, it really is the most suiting color for the iPace. Every color looks great on it but the Photon really sells the uniqueness.

I had a moment of "maybe I should get another one.." which lasted about 30 seconds.

While I think the performance of it (specifically handling) gets vastly overstated at times, it really is a stunning luxury vehicle that is just about the best city-use daily driver on the market.
