Would you have an I-Pace if it wasn't an EV, but had the F-Pace 550ho SVR engine instead. Does the environmental impact of an EV sway your decision?
I think the comparison might be closer if you were asking would someone buy a sailboat if it had no mast and a big dirty diesel.The EVness of it is inextricably linked to why it's such a great car. No ICE car could be like it, so the question whether one would buy an I-Pace without the electric drive train is sort of like asking if you'd buy a plane if it can't fly [img= class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]
I was stopped at a red light, and a lady walked over to the passenger window and motioned for me to roll down the window to talk.I keep screaming (in emails) to Jaguar to STOP advertising the I-Pace as "It's a Jaguar - and you should have one!" and start claiming what it is - the BEST luxury EV available. It should be eating a lot of Tesla's lunch for people who like cars more than their cell phones.
Me too. I was at a public charger and a Tesla driver who was there asked me about my new I-Pace. Told him I had Teslas the last 6 years and the differences, both good and bad, between those and the I-Pace. Other people have asked me about the I-Pace in parking lots. Seems people are interested when they see it. :smile2:I was stopped at a red light, and a lady walked over to the passenger window and motioned for me to roll down the window to talk.
She said she was a Tesla owner, and was considering the I-Pace, so what did I think about it? She said she had already decided to go take a test drive, and just wanted a preview.
So I described why I liked it, while she gave the interior a look over. She said, 'gosh, this is niiiice! A lot nicer than my Tesla!'
Well, sure. :grin2:
