Tesla confirmed today that it delivered 200,000 electric cars to buyers in the United States, the first automaker to reach that level of sales. The milestone is a mixed blessing because it means that the $7,500 federal EV tax credit available to Tesla customers will be reduced by 50 percent in six months—and continue to diminish to zero by about January 2020.

The UK’s Autocar website reported this week that Volkswagen could introduce an all-electric four-door version of its iconic Beetle. The model, if given the green light, would use Volkswagen’s MEB electric-vehicle architecture, the underpinning of an entire line of VW EVs going into production as soon as next year. VW design boss Klaus Bischoff said the company will focus first on electric cars with the highest potential for sales in the next year or two—before deciding on an electric Beetle. Volkswagen continues to garner headlines for concept and one-off electric vehicles while remaining a marginal player in the current EV market.

After two days behind the wheel of the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace in early June, we can confirm that the British automaker has delivered a stylish, highly capable luxury EV. With its 90 kilowatt-hour battery pack providing 240 miles of range, and an electric propulsion system capable of zooming to 60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds, the I-Pace sets a new standard for a long-range EV from an established luxury automaker. While we expected the I-Pace to be a beast on the road and offer a high degree of luxury appointments in the cabin, we discovered four things that surprised us.
