Hello from Essex

Post by NATO » Sat Mar 10, 2018 8:20 am

Hi all,
Ordered the I-Pace February 2017 at the local dealer, heard nothing since even though it has been launched, did some chasing last week to find out about confirming model order etc, still drew a blank. Looks like the Netherlands knows how to look after there customers better than the UK :shock:

Look forward to getting an update !

Not sure where is Essex you registered, but just put deposit down and ordered mine from Grange Brentwood. Very helpful and professional service. Questions I’d like to know answers to are
1: will you be able to turn off the piped fake engine noise coming from speakers?
2: will the £4,500 gov rebate definitely be deducted? (they couldn’t say 100%).
3: what insurance group will it be?

Any help appreciated!

I placed mine with my local dealer which is out of the county, sounds like the direct opposite of the service I received. At the moment subject to the budget the dealer will claim back the £4500 grant on our behalf, see link below.

I have piped fake engine noise on my present car and I have never found a way to turn it off, but there are kits available to change the sound to other car exhaust noise !

Hi,

There is a selectable enhanced 'whine'/"raspy note" (as electric not ICE) in the sportier modes i.e. calm to dynamic setting.

It is 5min 44 sec in (active sound design) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoxLIKCh8gI

Cheers,
