These days it's tough to go one day without a bunch of coverage related to Tesla.

This is the simple reality, folks: It is the hottest automaker alive today.

These are the vehicles people want to know about. And, obviously, many investors — institutional and retail, alike — have a vested interest in the company's performance whether it's good or bad.

That said, the best electric vehicles from the traditional automakers are starting to emerge. And it's happening at the most interesting time.

Tesla is just starting to hit its stride with Model 3 production.

Sales of the Bolt were up when Model 3's were still being figured out at the factory.

The I-Pace recognises this fact and delivers on the imperative behind it and, on the way, should help change not only the way we think about electric cars but Jaguar too. And for a brand that has struggled with its image for far too long, for those who love the British motor industry that could just be the best news of all.

1st - Jaguar I-Pace: Europe’s first long-range premium electric car gets it right first time. Looks like a Jaguar should, drives like one too

2nd - Tesla Model S: Still impressively capable given its age, but quality is variable and chassis not close to the standard now set by Jaguar...
