With the pretty much unanimously positive reviews of the I-Pace (IEVS' review positively gushed*, much like the case with the Model S intro), it seems Tesla now has real competition for the Model S/X and higher-end Model 3s. Teslas still have a major advantage (for now) on extended road trips in the U.S. from the SC network (Europe's a different matter), but anyone who can afford a car that starts at $69.5k is unlikely to be limited to a single vehicle or option.

Tesla Model S Catches Fire While In Motion – Not Caused By Crash
While fossil-fueled car fires are so common as mostly to go unmentioned, this one _appears_ to be a pure battery fire. No doubt we'll be hearing more about the cause. This one appears to have nearly self-extinguished before the fire truck arrived, and no one was injured.
The brand-new all-electric 2019 Jaguar I-Pace is not an exceptional car. It one-ups that by being a truly extraordinary one. While it wears the Jaguar moniker, it’s fair to say that it’s representative of nearly everything an all-electric Land Rover could offer. Marrying this with the I-Pace’s sports-car-meets-SUV facade, athletic handling, exhilarating acceleration, and spacious, luxurious cabin makes for a true game-changer. Like any car, it’s not without its faults, though they’re few and far between. . . .
