Can anybody confirm that the i-pace does NOT have electrically adjustable steering wheel. From what I can find and the owners manual it would seem not. My dealer said he would think a FE has to but I'm not convinced. Not reviews have mentioned it. I hope it does but...

Cheers

True that the I-Pace steering wheel adjustments are manual (up/down & telescopic)..a little cheap for such an expensive luxury vehicle BUT honestly once you set it, how many times to you adjust it? Like never, so who cares. "Set it and forget it."

Literally every time my wife and I get in the Model 3. Except that it's automatic because I just touch my name on the touch screen.

On my Models S it was keyed to the keyfob. So even easier. Maybe that will come to the 3 someday.

We drive roughly 300 miles/weekend and share duties... although AP handles most of it ;)

I'm not letting my wife and her "brake after contact" preferred driving style anywhere near my I Pace. Seriously though, she's a terrible driver. Lovely person and a great wife, but a terrible driver.

... I also prefer Auto Pilot to my wife's "driving" she treats the steering wheel as a digital on/off device. Not the SMOOTH into it SMOOTH out of it turning it should be...

I'm sure it will be added next model year. gotta cut costs somewhere.
Being in cold Quebec I much prefer to have a heated steering wheel (Not available on the Model 3) than an electrically adjustable one. But don't worry about the heated steering wheel on the Model 3, I'm sure it will be added next model year. gotta cut costs somewhere. :grin2:

Jaguar I-Pace also "learns" your preferred settings...seat, mirror adjustments, radio/satellite preferences, A/C settings, seat cooling or heating, etc. just based on the keyfob as well...so it's all automatic and learns as you drive. But it doesn't include the steering wheel adjustment...no big deal IMHO. My wife is only 5'3" and neither her nor I change the steering wheel position in her LR RR Velar...we just change the memory setting (1) or (2) and it adjusts the seat & mirrors...that's good enough for us. To each his/her own I guess. :wink2:

Thanks for the confirmations! It seems to me there must be another reason other than just price but its the second strange decision Jaguar took to me. The lack of 3ph charging is extremely short sighted as most people charge at home and being able to use 3ph (21kw) to do it in 4-5hrs would be huge for me. I think it would help others too. I get not every home has it but if not you're no worse off but expensive cars likely park in expensive homes and they are more likely to have or install 3ph. Just my thoughts of course.

Heated windshield is nice too (both for fogging and ice), another feature not available on any Tesla. Alot of JLR's vehicles have the manual steering adjust, just a design choice.

Same for us in the RR Evoque, have not ever moved the steering wheel on her car.

Yes, got heated windshield in my current Volvo V60. Love it. Of course I selected the option on the I-Pace.

Of course, this is not some newfangled feature recently invented by Tesla - my more-than-twenty-years-old Lexus has the same feature. I just touch #1 if someone's changed the settings, or my wife could touch #2 to recall her settings for seat, wheel, mirrors, etc. We don't even need a touch screen, we have genuine buttons to press!

It's kind of weird that Jaguar omits this. I like that my Lexus moves the wheel out of my way as I exit or enter the driver's seat. But it is a very minor issue.
