What alternatives should I consider to a used Tesla Model S hatchback?
Among conventionally powered rivals, the Porsche Panamera comes pretty close in terms of luxury and prestige. The 4 E-Hybrid model has strong performance, is superbly built, has plenty of space for four and will impress the neighbours. The electric range is comparatively short, though, and the petrol engine is thirsty.
The conventional Audi Q7 can seat seven, like the Model S, whereas the Q7 e-tron version has only five seats. The e-tron is a plug-in hybrid and not a fully electric car. It’s remarkably refined and has lively performance and a comfortable ride. The regular Q7 is capacious and practical, too.
The Jaguar I-Pace styles itself as an SUV and it is a brilliant electric car with a sumptuous interior and a longer real-world range than some versions of the Model S. That plush interior also has an excellent driving position, while the ride is comfy.
The Audi E-tron is a large SUV that combines those much-loved traditional Audi qualities – such as a top-notch interior – with hitherto unimagined levels of comfort and refinement. The spacious interior is bursting with plush materials and high-tech goodies, too.
