Yes, consumption is high, but we are a family with 2 full size SUV's and a diesel pickup (for work) so not really looking for an economy car.

EPA testing does not average over 70MPH, because those speeds are illegal in most of the USA. Also to get a trip average over 70, the highest speeds have to be much higher and accelerations quick. Take any car on a road trip of 150 miles and try to average over 70mph, it will require sections of the drive to be over 75-80 mph to pull up the average of the slower parts of the drive.

X is EPA-rated 390Wh/mile, at an average of 48mph, including charging losses.

The EPA Highway cycle : averages 48mph, and has a peak speed of 53mph.

WLTP "Extra High" cycle averages about 71mph, and peaks at 73mph. But never gets published on its own.

Neither Tesla nor Jaguar have any immediate plans for an economy car.
No EV/hybrid pays for itself in fuel savings when compared to current ICE offerings in the US. $13k MSRP cars get 39 mpg hwy EPA but discounts are available.

You buy an EV because it's a superior driving and ownership experience today.

Trivia - Did a round trip in an EV Friday. 63.5 map miles, 13.1 kWh consumed, roundtrip, 2,520 feet elevation change, 9 miles surface streets, the rest freeways. Cost of car? $28,200 total new. Will it ever pay for itself? Unlikely.

Jaguar i-Pace FE Photon Red 20" wheels, "Leaper"
Two Chevrolet Volts in service
24.2 kW x 480v 3ph solar array self-installed.

Wow, you are back.... Welcome...

I have been on the sideline waiting to buy an EV since I had my 2012 Volt, the I-Pace is the first to check all of my boxes, and a great replacement for our Range Rover. Had both S and X Tesla's reserved but just did not like the quality when I actually got to drive them... Loved the drivetrain...

I think the I-pace and E-tron are both going to sell all they can build, but certainly nothing more then a mosquito bite to Tesla.
