caption The Jaguar I-PACE. source Hollis Johnson/Business Insider I’ve driven the Tesla Model 3 sedan, the Jaguar I-PACE compact crossover, and the Tesla Model X three-row SUV. The vehicles vary quite a bit in capabilities, appointments, and price. But in the end, I think the Tesla Model 3 is the best car. This is going to be a slightly unusual comparison, but it isn’t my fault. As I’ve noted before, Tesla has a segmentation problem. Here at Business Insider, when we want to match up compact crossover SUVs, we can find two similar vehicles from different brands. But when it comes to all-electric cars, it’s a different story. The Tesla Model 3, for example, could take on the Chevy Bolt – and I have compared the vehicles. But the Bolt is the only true long-range EV on the market for under $40,000. Tesla isn’t yet making the $35,000 version of the Model 3, so you have to point out that the available Model 3 is a … [Read more...] about We drove an $87,000 Jaguar I-PACE to see how it compares to a $57,500 Tesla Model 3 and a $150,000 Model X.

caption Our Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo test car. source Benjamin Zhang/Business Insider The Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is all-new for 2018. It’s a hybrid version of Porsche’s first ever production wagon. Turbo S E-Hybrid is powered by a 550 horsepower, 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 along with a 136 horsepower hybrid drive unit to produce 680 horsepower. The hybrid drive system is inspired by the million-dollar 918 hybrid hypercar. According to Porsche, the hybrid V8 wagon can go from 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 192 mph. Once again, we were impressed by the Panamera’s power, luxury, technology, and versatility. However, it wasn’t as fast as we had expected and it’s very pricey. The base Porsche Panamera sedan starts at $86,3000 while our Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo wagon starts at $188,400. Options and fees pushed … [Read more...] about We drove a $211,000 Porsche Panamera to see if it’s a hybrid supercar with room for the whole family. Here’s the verdict.
We’ve waited a long, long time to drive the battery-electric 2019 Audi E-Tron. We saw the first camouflage-clad prototypes in March of 2018 at the Geneva Auto Show. We went behind the scenes in Berlin to learn about the intricacies of its battery pack. We took a ride in one down Pikes Peak in August, shortly before the SUV made its global debut in San Francisco, and we drove a pre-production car through the Namibian desert several weeks later. What a trip it’s been. Why the long ramp-up? Simply put, the E-Tron is one of the most significant cars in Audi’s history. It’s the model that points the way forward in terms of electrification, design, and technology. It’s five years in the making, and there won’t be time for a do-over if Audi doesn’t stick the landing. At launch, Audi will offer two versions of the E-Tron named Premium Plus and Prestige, respectively. Priced at $74,800, the Premium Plus trim level comes generously equipped with 20-inch … [Read more...] about 2019 Audi E-Tron first drive review
