Tesla is a great car, but because of what you point out, an S should be a $50k car, 3 a $26k car.Test drove the Model X and Model S. To my option, it felt as if I was driving a glorified golf cart. Handling was different due to the distance from driver seat and front wheels. Perhaps something I was not use to. But very good range. Once I sat down in the Jag, it was totally different feeling. In today's market, No car manufacturer should EVER call their cars luxury if they dont offer seat ventilation. This is Arizona, I can fry an egg on the side walk during summers ?
The one option that was very important for me was the full leather upgrade that you are referring to. I don't understand why this isn't standard of you have the Windsor leather package.I had an Audi Q5 Premium before the I-Pace. The I-Pace made the Audi look like a low end commuter car. I have never had a car before where even the dashboard was leather, the window ledges are leather, instead of some plastic part. The I-Pace is a beautiful car, and drives and feels incredible.
I will admit, I am always a bit on alert waiting for the infamous high voltage battery fault error message, but so far in about 4200 miles in about 3 months the car has worked flawlessly. Software updates over the air are working great (already have 19C on the car). I have had all of the following applied by my dealer with no issues, and today Topix listed that H264 is now available as well, so I will be scheduling for that as soon as the dealer can get the car in for the update.
These have all been applied (with no issues afterwards), and I look forward to when the H264 update can be applied:
H207 - HOOD LATCH AND CABLE
H213 - REGENERATIVE BRAKING SYSTEM NON-COMPLIANCE
H221 - INSTALL NEW CHARGE PORT LABEL
H228 - SOFTWARE ENHANCEMENT PROGRAMME
H237 - INSTRUMENT PACK CLUSTER UPDATE
Very true. The Mars Red is the has the red leather on the passenger side tooI would have gotten the full leather option, IF the leather on the dash would have been black even if you have the Siena Tan leather option. Putting Sienna Tan on the dash just didn’t give the right look because there is so much of it at that point.
