Picked up my new I-Pace HSE 11/7
And it is great!
I placed an order back in July, and expected delivery in late December. I needed to have delivery in 2018 for tax purposes. Then about a month ago, I heard from the dealer that the delivery was delayed until February 2019. I asked to the dealer to let me know if any stock came on or there were any cancellations. About two weeks ago, he offered me an HSE with the following options:
Light Oyster Leather Interior
Configurable Ambient Interior Lighting
Satin Dark Ash Swirl Veneer
Click and Go Integrated Base Unit
20" 5 Spoke 'Style 5068' DT Finish
Heated Steering Wheel
Adaptive Surface Response
On the build sheet, it says, "Type of Sale Code - Launch Stock".
I have had the car for four days, and my first impressions are very positive. Frighteningly fast. Build quality as you would expect. I am struggling a bit so far with the UI, but right now I am more interested in driving than setting the accent lighting color.
I am already sold on electric vehicles, and have been happily driving a Chevy Bolt for about a year and a half. That is a great car in its own right, but it is nice to have something more refined in the garage to complement it.
I will post additional impressions as they come in.
