Two I-Pace vehicles (Photon Red FE and Borasco Grey prototype) were at grand opening of South Bay Jaguar/Land Rover in Torrance CA last night. My wife and I were treated to a ride along with a Jaguar engineer (two roughly 3 1/2 mile loops, where wife and I each took turns in front passenger and rear seat). While only in the car for about 25 minutes total, we are very much sold on the vehicle and glad that we have one on order. Visually, we really like the looks of the car (even though neither one of us is a big fan of either of the colors at the event). At 6'1" tall and weighing 235 pounds, I found the front sport seat to be quite comfortable (on the firm side, which I like) with my wife having plenty of room sitting behind me. When we swapped, the back seat was also quite comfortable with sufficient (but not a tremendous) amount of leg room for me.

One of the test drivers at the event told us that with aggressive driving, we could expect a range of probably something slightly less than 200 miles. With conservative driving, we were told that 240 mile range should not be a problem (and could probably expect better). Reading between the lines, I was left with the impression that you could better.

On the bad news front, it seems that our early November delivery date will indeed bleed into December (not confirmed as my sales associate was not at the event, and I did not want to ask someone else to check the computer).

I guess you are talking EPA range, but with conservative driving you should be close to the WLTP 290 miles. Many cars today surpass their WLTP range with conservative driving. Teslas are slightly short of their WLTP.

Based on a couple of different conversations, I would expect something somewhere between the 240 mile EPA estimate and the 290 mile WLTP figure. When I say "conservative", I do not mean hyper-mileing. Just everyday run of the mill driving in Eco mode and rarely stepping on it (except when occassionally blowing the doors off some fancy ICE vehicle dthat pulls up at same stop light and gives me the side-eye).

I have a P90D Model-S so I reckon "similar" battery to Jag. I also expect that Jag motors are more efficient than Model-S (more in line with model-3 which is performing about 20% better than Model-S), but the CD is a bit worse. The Jag heat-pump may well mean that Winter (cold) performance/range is better than Model-S

So I reckon Jag will be similar to my Tesla, and unlikely to be much better. I get 220 miles range on my car - that's optimum-weather/temperature minimal AirCon or Heater] cruising on highway at 70-80MPH. In Winter, with temperatures around freezing, I'm 20% down on range

For me a long distance highway cruise is the only time I give a second though as to range - so, for me, the "blowing the doors off some fancy ICE vehicle" only happens on non-highway / short trips, rather than on max-range trips, and is therefore not a problem for range :) Either way, provided I use Regen rather than Friction Brakes then when driving "a bit leary" my consumption doesn't rise enough to make a huge difference as, as said above, my driving style is different on longer max-range trips as I am mostly on cruise-control at constant speed
