Jaguar J-Pace, Tesla Model Y Price, Canoo: Monday News Recap

Here is quick recap of the news we missed yesterday in the automotive industry.

Jaguar is currently working on its third SUV. The new Jaguar J-Pace will top of British manufacturer’s luxury SUV lineup ahead of the current F-Pace and E-Pace. It will be built on a new aluminium MLB platform and will offer PHEV and fully electric variants.

The news was first reported by Autocar. The J-Pace would arrive on the market in 2022 and feature an electric motor on the rear axle. That makes it possible to eliminate the driveshaft for added interior space while still having all-wheel drive.

The Tesla Model Y is still a good year away, but it’s already more expensive. Tesla jacked the price of its new entry-level electric crossover which was unveiled a few weeks ago by $1,000 in both the US and Canada. That means the new Tesla Model Y will start at $65,000 in Canada and $48,000 in the US.

It isn’t a huge increase, granted, but the timing of the whole thing is odd. What could possible have happened in the last few weeks that made Tesla increase its price before production has even begun?

Catch up on the latest Tesla Model Y news.

There’s a new electric vehicle manufacturer called Canoo. The EV startup is already planning their first vehicle lined up for 2021. The brand is comprised of former Faraday Future and BMW employees, and was previously called EVelozcity.

Canoo’s first EV will have a van-like design and full autonomous technology is already planned. Described as a “lifestyle vehicle”, it will have the versatility of a sport utility vehicle in a compact format that’s better suited to the city according to Canoo.

The new EV will be available through a subscription process that will be built around flexibility. Canoo says users will be able to try the car and return it at any point if they are not satisfied. An annual fee will be charged, but could be waved if a user decides the EV is not right for their needs.

This Guy Crashed a Lamborghini Huracan Performante

No matter how well engineered a particular performance car is, it can’t help you if you don’t respect it and drive it like a teenager who won the lottery.

Case in point, flooring a machine like the Huracan Performante can lead to a lightning quick loss of traction that will catch you completely off guard if you’re not expecting it or respecting the power being sent to the rear axle. This particular driver found that out the hard way.

Quick tips about driving a supercar: Keep both hands on the steering wheel, roll on the throttle, and never floor it on a narrow city street where you have no room for error.
