Hiya, docsbc! Great post and welcome back! It's been awhile.
"bumper car acceleration" at redlights and stop signs!I am currently at about 4,000 miles and ownership since November. This is my daily driver and I actually look forward to going to work and driving home, even in traffic. Always hoping to be the first one stopped at the traffic light, so I can see everyone else in the rear view mirror. I do not usually speed excessively, so the aggressive drivers who got left in the dust like to scream past me a few miles down the road as if they have accomplished something. LOL
I agree it is the best car I have owned including S Class AMG Mercedes which were my cars for 40 years. Fun to drive, beautifully finished inside, lots of Torque and no gas stations or tune ups.It appears that many of us have owned remarkable cars. I also feel that the Ipace is my favorite car ever that actually feels like a combination of my last two cars- Porsche 911 and Cayenne. I had the #3000 Tesla Model S 75 and sold it after one year to get the 911. My IPACE has the agility of the 911 and the utility of the Cayenne. But it is faster and more fun to drive ... and unique. I never miss gas stations and I try to behave while driving but Jes-o-pete this jag can pace. Over the years I have had a Jag S type, XJ8L and even a MKII years ago. The IPACE is all quality and as swift as you could ever handle. I recommend the IPACE without hesitation.
Funny, I tell people my 2 previous favorites, GL550 and Corvette, mated to produce the I-Pace. Awesome combination of styling, performance, handling, and practicality. The I-Pace is the ultimate Luxury Sport+Utility EV. I don't miss the 3rd row as much as I though I would, and given I've driven over 25,000 miles in 20 months, I've probably saved $5,000 on gas alone vs. the GL. The I-Pace is still so uncommon I get "What is that?" even as the car enters its 3rd year on the market. Only regret is I didn't wait a year to get one of those crazy $20-$30k discounts off the price.I also feel that the Ipace is my favorite car ever that actually feels like a combination of my last two cars- Porsche 911 and Cayenne.
