First iX impressions.

Only 2000 miles of which 500 is highway. First positive impressions are: extraordinary quiet, impressive acceleration, above average ride and comfort. Great front and side vision. Very comfortable seats. Lots of interior room. Negatives are: incredibly complex systems to do simple things, exterior styling is an "acquired taste", rear vision is marginal. Odd door handles inside and outside. It is still too early to make a definitive assessment of this vehicle. Other than an intermittent annoying creak in the passenger window area that is hard to replicate at the dealership, the build quality seems very good. This is not a big Lexus or Mercedes sedan, but rather a very good SAV. Range is 300+ with the 21" wheels. Charging is easy and relatively fast with a good DC charger. True 11KwH on 48 amp home charger. Driver assistance package works well. Steering is a little light but no issues with the shape of the wheel. There will be some adjustment to this type of vehicle, but it has been easier than I anticipated. Registering it as an EV, leased out of state, was a frustrating experience and the extra fees for EV licensing are ridiculous.


Good alternative to EQS suv and Tesla X.

Once you get past the unusual styling, especially the front, the vehicle is very impressive. An honest 300+ mile range. Extremely nice interior although very complicated controls and infotainment will be a challenge for most. Very good seats, although not as good as BMW sport seats. Bottom cushion does not adjust and the massage is pretty lame. Quiet ride although impacts with the large wheel package seem a little abrupt. Could be that the rest of the car is so quiet it seems more noticeable. This is a great alternative to a Tesla X and the EQS suv. Great build quality and stunning acceleration. High price and an EV tax credit only if you lease. Reports say the Goodyear tires have a short life span.
