BMW i3, Hyundai Kona & Jaguar I-Pace Will Make You Forget Tesla

By  | 

With the start of a new year, those hoping to get the $7500 EV tax credit from getting the Tesla Model 3 model will not be anymore as the tax credit has been cut by half with the start of a new year. Of course, Tesla did say that they will make up to those that have already place the order previously but if you are still looking for an EV model right now, here are some of the vehicles that will still qualify for the $7500 EV tax credit.

One of the model will be the BMW i3 which will be coming in with an electric or electric with a range-extending gas engine. The base model will be offered for $44,450 before tax credit.

There is also the Hyundai Kona which is a full electric vehicle. Hyundai have yet to announce the price for this vehicle yet but this should definitely be on your list if you are looking to get an EV model.

One more option will be the Jagur I-Pace, a fully electric vehicle with a base price of $69,500 before tax credit.

    Apparently many EV buyers have already forgotten Tesla – in Holland the I Pace obliterated Tesla Model S and Model X sales in DEcember – by 2 to 1 and 4 to 1 , respectively, and went on to cause a 40% drop in Tesla sales in Norway. Not mentioned, but one car that is making people forget the Model S is the Porsche Taycan,not available until late 2019 but has already racked up sales that have sold out the first year’ production, which , by the way, will be greater than that yeaar’s production of its direct competitor, the Tesla Model S. It also competes against the higher priced versions of the Model 3. Whenever it gets here, the $35,000 base Model 3 will find competitors waiting and ready- with greater driving ranges and a $7500 price advantage beyond their sticker price advantage. The Model 3 has moved to China to take advantage of those non-American lower priced workers who Musk said he would never employ. Of course, we all know what a Musk promise means. But Musk cannot escape to China and avoid a clobbering that his Model 3 is going to get, both at the bottom end and the top end. Tesla bulls who have placed their faith in the Model 3 apparently didn’t notice how similar it is to the Model S, which is now getting run out of the market.
