Leaper Gone – Electric Engaged

By:  Cathy Droz

Maybe you thought Tesla was the most luxurious all-electric vehicle on the market?  I think that Tesla has made a name for itself with a sleek style, a home screen the size of your laptop and personalized  charging stations that appear to have become gathering places for latte sipping executives and energy conscious surgeons.

I test drove the All-Electric 2020 Jaguar I-PACE EV 400 HSE. The exterior of the Jaguar has a different look than my Jaguar from the 1980’s.  Those were the days  when I could proudly park my car anywhere  and when I returned I still had a Leaper as a hood ornament.  Times have changed and so has the design and technology on this $90,000 vehicle.   The I-Page Jag did get a lot of attention on the road and at the Helicopter Hangar as well.  A futuristic look with some very cool details you will see in the video.

With a 200-mile radius I needed to charge when I had 37 miles remaining.  It was easy to pull up the closest charging station ( located on a normal size screen.)  One morning I charged for a little bit at the Hilton Hotel by my house and then on Sunday, for fun charged at the Penske  owned Jaguar Land Rover of North Scottsdale dealership … and they were happy to oblige. I had so much fun with this car but I must admit I was constantly looking at how many miles I had left.  Charging stations are not a plentiful as in California and I do miss the Leaper.   For more on this vehicle go to www.jaguar.com.
