Have had an iPace for almost a year now. Been faultless. Bought it used at 2 years old with 2K miles, done 10K miles in it. Best car I've had.

Out of that list I would be taking the ipace, I just couldn’t live with the dashboard and screen in the Tesla and the fact the model 3 looks a bit like Donald Duck.

As someone said earlier if you can wait a few months the Nissan Ariya and Kia ev6 will be available - both look great options.
I’ve been ev only since 2013 by the way, there’s no going back!

And in nearly 4 decades of membership I've yet to find their car reliability results to be far off the mark.

Whatever you decide, they're all going to drastically lose miles during the wintertime.So maybe worth getting onto a few ev forums/groups to see real world figures.
This was my 1st winter in the E-tron 50 with an advertised 190mile range, however i was seeing between 116-120miles and now starting to creep up has it gets warmer now 150-160miles (i don't think I've ever recalled seeing 190 or even 180 lol)

Out of your list the i-Pace would be my pick, closely followed by the e-Niro....or wait a bit and get the new Hyundai Ioniq5.

Happy Shopping!

That's my initial view - yes it's got loads of tech but the majority of that tech I already have on my Volvo (touch screen, AutoPilot etc). I'd much rather have something which looks good and is comfortable.

iPace is top of my list at the mo too Steve, closely followed by the E-Tron (although the range does concern me on that).

I really don't know when it would be - it could be tomorrow, could be December or could be when my Volvo lease ends. The list will change though as discounts become available and the lease company updates things so others like the Polestar could make an appearance.

Hmm that is an issue isn't it. I do like the look of the E-Tron and it's build quality will be good, but everything I read references the poor range.

With the money for a Tesla you can buy around 4 Dacia Spring and keep them spread around the work area and transfer from 1 car to another, while the non driving one stay at charge
