Drove the I-Pace today!!!!

Today I was lucky enough to drive the I-Pace. Coming from a F-Pace I easily adapted to the controls and the nav system. Having the second screen for the climate control is a huge enhancement as it allows you to easily change the settings without having to go to any additional menus. The car is stupid quick off the line and you no longer will have to worry about passing another vehicle as power is no issue. Handling was superb as the car seemed like it was on a track. For those of you worried about the beeping sound when backing up, I wouldn’t worry about it as the sound is very faint. We started out with regenerative braking on low but as soon as we changed it to high, it was a difference of night and day. At first I didn’t know if I would like the braking feature but as I drove it more I easily got used to it and only used my brake to come to a complete stop. The artificial sound that has been added is hard to describe. As other people have described, it’s a cross between video games and some type of rumbling sound. I didn’t notice any issue with blind spots or restricted views. In summary end of October can not get here soon enough. To say I was pleased and impressed is an understatement. Jaguar has created the ideal combination of luxury, performance and efficiency. Just my 2 cents 😁

Thank you! It's great to hear about a first hand experience from a fellow early adopter as opposed to 'just' critics.
I'm planning to not test drive the iPace so that my first experience with the car is in my own one

Jaguar has an I-Pace test drive event coming at the beginning or October to San Fransisco, check with your dealer for a registration and get registered to test it...

Yes, great to read the positive review. I've also heard that test drives will start becoming available early October through-out the greater Bay Area.

My Test Drive

I also was able to take a test drive here on Friday.
It was short but I did notice a smooth ride unlike anything else I have driven before.
I did not spend time playing with the touch screen as my eyes kept on the road so as
to not get in an accident with the prototype car.
This is a new Jaguar dealership and just opened up last week.
My order has been in since this spring.

The good news I found out is that it should have a November delivery date which
would get me in 2018 tax credit time frame.
