Glad to see that you're configuring a Cyber Orange car...note that the colored piping on the seats matches your external color. BTW blue is my least favorite color ( and my wife's favorite). I'm getting Cyber.
I sat next to Mark Kaufman (Team Edison, Head of EV Marketing) at an conference on Feb. 15th. He said:
1. Reserve the GT...the Performance Edition will be an option when you place your official order.
2. You'll be able to delete the glass sunroof at that time (saves weight).

Ford has specifically stated that the batteries are installed in "modules", for two reasons:
1. If a module fails, it can be replaced with a new module, without replacing the entire pack.

3. Both electrics lean...

Since the reservation holders most interested in those settings are the ones with GT reservations, why did you headline "ALL trims and models"...the most important models aren't there. I'm 70...
I, too was interested in an I-Pace, as I prefer the cab-forward design. Unfortunately, when I enquired as to buying one, I was offered a price of full M$RP, with no discount (Sacramento, CA region). I'm keeping my Mach-E reservation.
AWD gives faster starts due to the twin motors and more horsepower (and more traction). But more power uses up the charge faster...you can't have both. Eventually, higher-power-density solid state batteries will extend range, but we're not there yet.
