Surprise us! Tell us something people wouldn’t readily know about this I-PACE.
Accurately predicts your destination based on past usage. Acceleration is phenomenal, especially for such a large heavy car. Matrix headlights are amazing, automatically dipping just the parts of the beam that affect oncoming cars whilst keeping the rest at full beam so you can still see the verges clearly.
What electric car are you interested in next and why?
Another I-PACE, by far the best car I have owned in over 40 years!
What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
A basic Rolec WallPod which does exactly what we need. Simple plug in and charge but I think the rules have changed and you have to go for a smart unit these days?
