Before I request it, wondering if anyone's had luck getting a discount when ordering an I-Pace in the US?

I would think you might have a chance for a small discount if you are a repeat buyer from the dealership. Other than that being a first year car I would doubt there would be any discounts.

I only found MSRP for pre-orders.

If it's any consolation, a Porsche Macan with similar performance (Turbo Macan) and similar build as the First Edition is $98,000, and it has a smaller trunk area.

I think you're right, but I'm giving it the college try to get a discount. Fingers crossed :)

MSRP isn't too bad considering the incentives you get from the government. Doubt we'll see dealerships take much off the sticker price on a new electric car with performance to boot.

I would be bad business practice to discount cars without knowing demand.

Sometimes when demand outstrips supply, they mark them up.

Other times, they get a new model and it sits there, unloved, and discount it to move it.

Ordering takes the 'coin toss' factor out of the equation.

I have a hunch that demand in California will outstrip supply until after Dec 31 as people want to claim the tax credit. In 2019Q1, it will be interesting. Tesla will have little to no tax credits left, and create and even bigger gap in pricing.

I could be wrong, but Jaguar has been doing quite a bit of marketing for an EV.

The fact that Tesla Model S/X is selling well, and the i-Pace is cheaper and has more features as well as the Jaguar brand recognition, would lead me to think that some Tesla buyers will cross-shop. This could create a situation where i-Pace demand exceeds supply.

Not sure what the reality will be, but I've been told by two dealers that my order will not arrive for 12 months.

What state?

Understand a car salesman makes money when they sell you a car today, off the lot. So it is to their benefit to sell you some they have today.

Really disappointed in my local dealer.
Originally told me he would order vehicle: MSRP minus $1,000. He called today that he has his next allocation and is ready to order my vehicle.
He backed out of the deal, he now wants MSRP!
Really bad taste in my mouth.
I haven't decided whether I'm moving forward with the I-Pace.:frown2:

Thats a tough pill to swallow, but MSRP is what most other people are paying... Actually I have not heard of anyone getting a discount. My Dealer took 3 allocations for their inventory, and those babies are going to have the dreaded "additional dealer markup"

OUCH! When I ordered our FPace, I was the very first guy in Oregon who walked in and plunked down a deposit, and the first guy to get one (besides another who got a FE). When you sign a contract with them and plunk down the money for a given price from the configurator, how can they charge any more? The price is online and right there for everyone to see. Charging more would be super shady, maybe even illegal? I had a price for the FPace, the price was there in black and white (uh full MSRP of course ordering it online and early on) and that's what we paid and we treated like very valued clients. If I order an I-Pace and the dealer says they're going to charge more than the online price I'd tell them where to stick it :mad:. But that's just me. I would fully expect that if I went down to the same salesguy here in Oregon, he'd surely not try and jack me for more cash. A repeat customer is the best thing he could ever hope for.



Going back to those early days of waiting 9 long months for our cherished FPace, no one got any discounts on those either. You don't get discounts until they're sitting and not moving. :|
