    Totally agree with you there, when I drove it I was mightily impressed. It’s the best interior in the entire range too, which is why it’s being shared across the facelifted models. I still can’t believe that Jaguar beat all other premium manufacturers to releasing an EV bagging European car of the year with it too. A first for any Jaguar and well deserved.

    I'm hoping that I can keep the X351 long enough that the first iPaces will have depreciated enough to get into my price bracket!

    I was told by an Ipace owner at Gaydon last weekend that it cost him roughly £10 in electricity to drive 200 miles.

    I am surprised that 5p per mile is not strongly advertised.

    How good will the batteries be by then? I fear that the resale value of electric cars could be very poor because their range by then will be very poor and replacement batteries comparatively expensive.

    I don't know about Jaguar, but other car companies "rent" the batteries, so that when they die (or go below a certain capacity to maintain charge) they get replaced - this rental is not cheap, but is a lot more accessible than a multi-thousand new battery. Which ever way it is charged, though, battery replacement costs should be considered as part of the charging cost and included in the "mpg equivalence" and "pence per mile" calculations.

    This does mean that Stagnite's "5p a mile" is not really representative - it is more likely to be closer to 20+p a mile.

    Just had a trip to the airport in this today.
    Driver explained that there are 6 of these in their fleet and that the company had previously run Priuses.
    He said it's the only rival to a Tesla and that he can run all day long on a charge. Their company has "fast chargers" which will top up completely in a couple of hours.
    He questioned the Tesla "superchargers" claiming that tests showed that the batteries on a Tesla had deteriorated to 50% capacity after equivalent of 150,000km. Apparently a parallel test of a Tesla battery subjected to more gentle charging regime (20kW I think he said) was still at 91% of original capacity after 290,000km equivalent. The taxi driver seemed knowledgable and plausible to me.
    The car itself had phenomenal acceleration from rest and charged (sorry ) up to 120km/hr (and well beyond) easily. Sorry to say that my V8 prejudices took another hit in this experience - my head remains firmly in the sand, but my mind has been wakened to the possibility of great performance with an easy-to-live-with ownership experience. I'd still be concerned about the available range for my longer journeys, but my first i-Pace experience wont be forgotten quickly.

    I wouldn't trust that taxi driver too much - he appears to have got lost if he is in the north east of England.

    Lol.
    I didn't check whether the Jag sat nav was included in all the updates since my car was built. Maybe not
