WOW this isnt good. Dead Last. Really? I have relied on the emergency breaking for the tesla and to see that I'm moving to a car that is last is a little disappointing:

Strange. Watch this video (wait until 02:31 for the emergency brake test)...




Pretty close considering the Audi RS3 weighs a heck of a lot less and has more massive brakes. BTW - I believe InsideEVS are Tesla biased.

Not the same test. If you hammer on the brakes as in the video, it brakes just fine. The *emergency* brake test asks at what point the vehicle decides that the driver isn't on the ball and brakes by itself.

Oh, I didn't watch the original video. Okay. I suppose that can be adjusted very easily with an OTA software update if JLR decides it needs to do so. Thank you.

I don't believe that video shows the same kind of test referred to in the InsideEVs article. In the video the driver is applying the brake and testing the stopping distance while the AEB (Automatic Emergency Braking) test mentioned in the article is testing the maximum speed at which the car (not the driver) will apply brakes automatically if it detects an obstacle. The full results for the AEB test can be seen here.

The question is: Was it the prototype or the retail car? There were changes.

I remember when AEB didn't even function as AP2 was rolled out. And there are internet videos of a Model X with AEB that won't try to stop WITH AEB in place.
Then there was the fire truck and the street sweeper issues among others.

Seems according to the official EURO NCAP tests, the I-Pace performed AEB very well, so the test above seems to be an outlier. Overall 5 star safety.

At 4800lb the i-Pace also makes a good kinetic energy weapon. If a 3500lb car blows a stoplight and you hit it, you are more likely to survive. Ditto for head-on's.
