Jaguar woos Tesla owners with $3,000 I-Pace EV discount

Jaguar woos Tesla owners with $3,000 I-Pace EV discount In a bid to kick start sales of its I-Pace luxury electric vehicle (EV), Jaguar has set its sights at an unlikely target: current Tesla owners. The automaker confirmed to Engadget that it's offering a select group of Tesla owners $3,000 off the price of its I-Pace EV. The offer is also available to anyone who lives in a Tesla-owning household. Those consumers can combine the company's "Tesla Conquest" incentive with a $5,000 dealer discount and $7,000 allowance credit to get $15,000 off the I-Pace. With all three discounts, the base model costs $54,500, instead of $69,500. To top it all off, you don't have to trade in your Tesla to take advantage of the promotion.

While many Tesla owners love their electric vehicles, one complaint we've heard about has been about waiting for repairs. Last year Elon Musk announced Tesla would bring most collision repairs in-house to help reduce wait times to same-day or even one-hour, and now its mobile app is part of the push to get things fixed faster.

Now Tesla owners can attach a picture to their repair request

As the company explained in a tweet, now customers using the mobile app to schedule a service appointment can attach pictures of any damage along with the request. Getting a good look at what happened should make sure technicians are ready to fix it and have the right parts, whether at one of its service centers or if they're coming to the car. The feature just launched today -- here's hoping any of you with Teslas don't have a reason to use it any time soon.

Tesla begins selling insurance to owners of its vehicles

Tesla begins selling insurance to owners of its vehicles SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Tesla owners can now buy insurance policies from the electric car company in what may be an essential step toward it selling driverless vehicles. The company said Wednesday it's now selling policies in California and will go nationwide at an undisclosed date. Tesla said its policies will cost up to 20% less than other insurers because it knows its technology, safety and repair costs. The company said won't use or record individual driver data from its vehicles' sensors in pricing insurance. But it will use broader data from safety systems showing that its models are safer.

With all the focus on the new Model 3 dual motor all-wheel-drive and Performance versions, there’s another Tesla announcement that went under the radar. CEO Elon Musk announced that Tesla owners will ‘soon’ be able to request service through the app and a Tesla ranger will show up to repair the

Consumer Reports finds Tesla's Smart Summon 'glitchy' .
Consumer Reports and Tesla have had a rocky relationship over the years, and it doesn't look like they're about to patch things up any time soon. CR has declared Tesla's Smart Summon feature "glitchy" after several days of testing both at its own facility and in parking lots. The drive-to-you feature only works "intermittently," the publication said, sometimes confusing a parking lot for a public road and shutting off. And while Smart Summon appears to drive the car at cautious speeds, it also wanders "like a drunken or distracted driver" and sometimes veers into the opposite lane.
