The Jaguar I-Pace Will Deliver Subpar Range Compared to the Tesla Model X, Hyundai Kona, and Chevy Bolt

The Jaguar I-Pace Will Deliver Subpar Range Compared to the Tesla Model X, Hyundai Kona, and Chevy Bolt

Don’t get lured by the battery size capacity alone

This was Jaguar’s time to shine; maybe score a touchdown with no one else in sight. And still, Jaguar missed it. Jaguar has released the EPA-estimated figures for the 2019 I-Pace, and the 234-mile range makes us face-palm ourselves. With all the mumbo-jumbo surrounding Tesla, all eyes were on I-Pace as it was nearing its launch. This is the range-territory that even hatchbacks don’t enter these days because it’s embarrassing.

Watch a Tesla-Powered 2006 Honda S2000 Run a 10-Second Quarter Mile

Watch a Tesla-Powered 2006 Honda S2000 Run a 10-Second Quarter Mile

With such performance on tap, few can miss the high-revving Honda 2.0-liter

If you’re still dreaming of the Honda S2000’s amazing 100-horsepower/liter figure that was an industry benchmark in the sports car class for years, there’s now a new benchmark, at least in the S2000 world. As expected, it’s highly modified but in an unusual way: it sports the drivetrain from a Tesla Model S P100D.

Discontinued back in 2009, the S2000 remained the backbone of many modified rides over the years. This white example, nicknamed "Model S2000", is one of the raddest yet. It’s employing parts from the Tesla Model S and the Chevrolet Volt to tear up the dragstrip and seamlessly tick a quarter-mile time of 10.24 without much hassle. And that’s only the beginning.

Keep on reading to learn more about this cool S2000 EV.

Tesla Offers New Mid Range Model 3 To Tempt EV Buyers, But Base Trim Buyers Might Be Out Of Luck

Tesla Offers New Mid Range Model 3 To Tempt EV Buyers, But Base Trim Buyers Might Be Out Of Luck

The Fed Tax Credit is going away, so what’s it mean for all those reservations?

A new Model 3 is now available to order. It’s called the “Mid Range,” and it offers 260 miles per charge, a top speed of 125 mph, and a 0-to-60 mph time of 5.6 seconds, all for $45,000. Factor in the $7,500 Federal Tax Credit and $4,300 in average fuel savings, and the final price comes to $33,200, which makes it quite tempting for those looking to live the Tesla lifestyle without dropping a ton of coin. However, with the base Model 3 not hitting production until next year and the Federal Tax Credit on its way out the door, will the Mid Range be the best Tesla you can buy?

Watch Out Tesla Model S - The Audi E-tron GT Will be All About Power

Watch Out Tesla Model S - The Audi E-tron GT Will be All About Power

An Audi E-tron GT With Porsche Tech To Take On The Model S 100D?

The Audi E-tron GT is coming, and it will, by all accounts, be epic. Ever since Tesla made such glorious strides in the electric car fandom, the car world has been waiting for the rest of the big automakers to catch up. With the introduction of numerous expensive electric SUVs in the past couple of years, the car community as a whole gained the much needed electric car boost. But a true Tesla Model S competitor was still nowhere to be found. Until now. The Audi E-tron GT will be its competitor. And I am not the only one to say it. Siegfried Pint, Head of Development for Electric Drive at Audi, said that the new car is “steered towards performance.”

First Driving Impression: An Honest Take on the 2018 Tesla Model S

First Driving Impression: An Honest Take on the 2018 Tesla Model S

373 totally silent horsepower were mischievously pondering their next victim

The first time I ever saw the Tesla Model S was sometime in 2012 or 2013 at one of the car shows in Europe. I will guess that it was in Geneva. I left the Tesla stand a bit underwhelmed by its interior, but the performance, the size, and the sheer fact that someone is buying an electric car like that was more than enough to show me its importance. After that, I drove it only once. And not for a long time at that.

Now, finally, I got my third chance with the Tesla Model S at the Continental AG organized event called the #blackchili. In Nice. Yup, the South of France. I know, I am a lucky guy.

This time I had the Tesla Model S for 40 or so miles. Not the P100D, but the one with 373 horsepower. More than enough, believe me. Considering I drove the car for less than 50 miles, it may seem like I don’t have anything to write home about. How can I call this a short test drive then!? Well, I can because I will tell you about the Tesla Model S from the perspective of a guy who drove European cars all his life, and who never really had an EV stint like this.

The Porsche Taycan Will be Priced to Compete with the Tesla Model S - At Least in Base Form

The Porsche Taycan Will be Priced to Compete with the Tesla Model S - At Least in Base Form

Pricing of Porsche’s first-ever electric car could slot between the Cayman and the Panamera

The Porsche Taycan is arguably the most technologically advanced model Porsche has ever built, but it’s not going to be priced that way. In fact, the Taycan looks like it’ll be more affordable than we thought. A Porsche executive revealed that the Taycan will like carry a starting price of €80,000 or around $92,500 based on current exchange rates. That said, top-spec versions of the Taycan aren’t going to come cheap, potentially reaching €200,000, or a little over $230,000.

Tesla's Really Making Its Own Brand of Tequila

Tesla’s Really Making Its Own Brand of Tequila

It’s called Teslaquila, and it’s probably a real thing based on Tesla’s history with off-the-wall products

Leave it to Tesla CEO Elon Musk to turn seemingly harmless jokes and pranks and make something out of them. The under-fire CEO took a break from all his legal problems to show a “visual approximation” of Teslaquila, the company’s new tequila product. It’s unclear if Teslaquila is actually a real thing — it stemmed from an April Fool’s joke earlier this year — but considering that Musk once signed off on a flamethrower — that product netted Tesla $5 million pre-orders, by the way — it’s not unlikely that Teslaquila will be sold in liquor stores and groceries in the not-too-distant future.

BMW Loves Diesel, so Don’t Expect to see an All-Electric Lineup Anytime Soon

It will use diesel in its car in the foreseeable future

BMW makes and sells many diesel engines in Europe and other parts of the world that are not North America, and it doesn’t plan on stopping anytime in the near future. This point was confirmed on the sidelines of the Paris motor show by a high-ranking company official who also believes that generally speaking “the discussion about electro-mobility is a little bit irrational” in the current context.
