Buying an electric Jag? You might wanna look at Tesla first…

Ah, yes, one of the most famous brands in automotive history. For a while, there, it seemed as if they were going away but thankfully not. The XJ certainly brought them out of perilous waters, I’ll say.

But then, disaster struck. The new all-electric I-Pace isn’t as good as the Tesla Model X and if you’re wondering how close the I-pace was to achieving it’s targeted range, it was just 6 miles. 234 official miles compared to the planned 240 miles.

That’s just 4 miles short of Tesla’s base Model X at 238 miles but miles less than the top-of-the-line, state-of-the-art 100D that boasts 295 miles of range. However, this isn’t the end of Jaguar because, as we know, brand name seems to trump quality and quantity of other manufacturers.

It’s a close call between the two cars; one brand has been around for almost a century while the other is a relative new comer but already making headlines. However, from a cost perspective, you might want to take a look at Jaguar….

Because, for only 4 miles short of range on both base models, a Jag will only set you back $70,000. And for $5,000 more, you get an extra 4 miles of range. Once you get above the base models, however, things start to get a bit dodgy for Jag.

You see, the Jag only comes with one model whereas the Model X comes with four or five models ranging from seventy five grand all the way up to a hundred and thirty five grand which will get you 315 miles of range.

So, to make a long story short, you’re presented with two options. Take a more versatile and more diverse model range with relatively good quality or take the relative new comer that only offers one model.

I’d take a Tesla.
