On today's installment of Drive Wire, The Drive discusses a new report claiming that Jaguar may take on Tesla with two electric cars—a sleek battery-powered sedan and a bold electric SUV that would square off nicely against Elon Musk's Model S and Model X. According to Automobile, instead of continuing to try and take on the big guns of the traditional automotive luxury world, Jaguar might replace the XJ sedan with an electrically-powered four-door coupe, then supplement the F-Pace SUV with a similarly-powered sport-ute. Unfortunately, JLR's reported decision to go after Elon Musk and his tech-laden luxury cars may be coming at a cost—one that would be especially painful for gear heads. But you'll have to watch the video to find out what that cost would be.
