Conclusion: "The I-Pace. For a ground-up, first-time effort, it’s brilliant, handsome and good to drive."

I laughed at this:

Quote:
Smoothness and silence and, maybe too, the promise of self-driving. Tesla’s tech is little different from anyone else’s – it’s the tolerances that make the difference. It’ll wait longer before telling you to put your hands back on the wheel, make earlier, more positive corrections and so on. The Jaguar seems short-sighted, like it’s walking with its head down, so obstacle avoidance and white line ricochets are more abrupt. But none of these systems drive well. They don’t see more than one car ahead, get spooked by cars in the next lane and panic brake. People will think your dog is driving.

This is my favorite quote, which leads out of talking about the Tesla:

Quote:
I nickname it ‘Heffalump’. It’s just a dirty great fat blob. The Audi is an Audi and the Jaguar is gorgeous.
hehehehe

Seems the fact TG reported the same total range for all 3 cars has gotten many folk upset.

I found this article far more telling about Tesla build quality...
