So the I-Pace is finally on the list of cars eligible for Clean Air HOV stickers. But much I find much curious to find out that the all electric range listed in the CARB paperwork filing is 354.45 miles for the "S" model and 334.31 miles for the "SE" and "HSE" models. For comparison, the CARB paperwork filing for the Tesla Model X 75D is 318.4 miles and 403.9 miles for the Model X 100D, and for the Hyundai Kona Electric the range is 413.586 miles.

It's based on Urban Dynanometer Driving Schedule (UDDS), which I have no idea what it is.

Also, my delivery date looks like it's been pushed back to January 23. It was originally January 4, then revised to December 14, and now January 23. Oy!

The Dyno numbers make sense and fit into other testing we have seen.

As for your car delayed Jan 4 to Jan 23 makes sense too, mine was pushed from Oct 24th to mid November, so it would see a pretty consistent 3 week delay. I received notice my car is built and shipping from Graz soon...

Folks, here's a more cynical interpretation (and I'm not one for conspiracy theories, ever, really):

The California Air Resources Board wants to make EVs look attractive. They will choose the most lenient test cycle possible to tout the benefits.

As a judgment call, I think they're right to push their agenda because it's for the common good. It's too bad they have to revert to slightly disingenuous tactics.
