I too came from an X5 diesel as my daily - although mine was a 2016. Do you miss the size and ride height of the X5? I still sort of do...
My son (10) says "Its more like a hovercraft than a car. Sounds like one, too." He fully expects cars to fly by the time he's my age.My (grown) son recently rode in mine, and used this expression that I found prescient:
"This car is obscenely smooth. It's like it's hovering on ice, not driving down a road."
Timbo, we have a Pacifica plug-in, which my wife uses as her drive around town. She has over 8000 miles on it, only burned gas for 600 of that. It's a marvelous minivan, but it is pretty big to park around town.Welcome to the club! I drove an i3 for three years and decided I could never go back to burning dinosaurs again. Even with it’s limited range, the i3 satisfied 95% of my needs. I guess I am fortunate that I have a pickup and minivan at work I use for long distance driving/family vacations so at no point did I regret going electric. Has anyone tried driving the electric Pacifica yet? I haven’t, but it seems to me that would be a great combination—electric daily errand-getter and gas burning long distance hauler.
Anyway, I digress—you will be very happy with your Shagwah even though TopGear labels all Jag drivers as slimy creepy somewhat evil people with few scruples and a whole host of STDs.

Thanks for the info—we have a Chrysler Town and Country at work that I like to steal for vacations and when it needs to be replaced I will probably go with the plug-in Pacifica. Many people think minivans are lame, but I love them. Nothing better to travel across the country in if you ask me.Timbo, we have a Pacifica plug-in, which my wife uses as her drive around town.

Needless to say, we take my iPace when cruising around on weekends!
How do you like the ChargePoint? I went with the JuiceBox but don't think I like it at all. To quirky the interface.Was THIS close to buying a demo model Tesla Model X .... went to the closest dealer (which is about 90 minutes away ) and test drove and selected a car I had actually seen at a mall Tesla store. Salesman made an $8,000 “mistake “ on the paperwork and when he finally admitted the mistake, guess what he said the car was sold.... but of course he could find other, more expensive ones in other states. Then he didn’t reply to me for several days and I just couldn’t take all the price and equipment changes that Tesla did...
Luckily a Jaguar salesperson emailed me, I visited the dealership one rainy Sunday morning peeking in windows and thought hmmm I should test drive one of these good looking cars.... and within the week I had my beautiful white I-Pace with 0% financing, full federal tax credit, 2 cars traded in rather than going through Car Max, at a dealership I could walk to with a salesperson who really knows about this car!
I have driven BMW diesel X5 since 2010 and an I3 Rex. Fell in love with electric cars and wanted to have just one car with a decent range and enough room for my life. Had a. Chargepoint installed in my garage and life is good.

My Chargepoint system was great for the first couple of months but recently it seems to disconnect from WiFi and multiple attempts to reconnect will fail. I have to trip the breaker and go through the process of removing the charger from the app and reinstall. This happens once a week. However, I think the app is great. It's intuitive and once I figured out how to reset the charging station I haven't had other problems.How do you like the ChargePoint? I went with the JuiceBox but don't think I like it at all.
