Lol, I may be the first one in Pennsylvania, so there are 3 of us now on the East Coast. Took delivery over 3 weeks a go. Pics are after Ceramic Pro being applied.

I, too, am awaiting a black (Narvik, not Santorini - didn't like speckled look) i-Pace in Florida. Due by year-end but after joining/reading this forum today I emailed my dealer for confirmation of delivery date (12/21). Order shows build date of 11/2. First US delivery landed just 20 min from me a month and a half ago. I was order #5 at my dealer back in August. Hoping my Christmas present arrives on time!

Picked up my Narvik black a week ago. Looks great, and I agree I like it better than Santorini (there was one on the lot at dealership)

Beautiful, noticed you got the black trim and wheels. I was tempted but wanted the 22s. That's the closest I've seen to what I ordered, thanks! (expecting before Xmas!)

Available lease or financing options?

I struggled with the decision (high priced lease vs. risk of an unknown car losing tons of value)...ended up leasing.

Was that a JLR lease program or third party? My local dealer is telling me JLR is not offering lease or financing programs at all??? (at least not on i-Pace, although I'm bombarded with Jaguar offers on other models).


Anyone else care to share what their dealer offered (financing or lease terms?) Is this a dealership level decision or corporate?

I don't think JLR does any financing in the U.S. JLR has an exclusive agreement with Chase, who provides their financing. Chase lease terms are not negotiable, AFAIK.

@Jagpa I too am looking into a ceramic coating my Photon Red. If you don't mind me asking how much did the Ceramic Pro cost and what do you think of the results and how is it wearing so far?

Has anyone else had a Ceramic Coating applied?

My dealer offered a BofA option. I went another way.

If you're a high credit-worthy customer by their standards (something like 750 or 800+) with some assets, LightStream (subsidiary of SunTrust banks) has good priced "auto loans", but they don't want to be on the title. The application was quick and easy. They rapidly approve you, and believe you that you are buying a vehicle. They provide you a loan priced like it's secured by a title, but actually is just a signature loan. They drop the funds into your checking account, and leave you to negotiate whatever deal you can for your car as a "cash" purchase. And, you keep the title. Once approved, if you "close" prior to 11:30 AM, you can get the funds the same day or pick your day to receive it.

I think they're easy, reasonable, flexible, and great!! This will be my 2nd time using them.
