2020 Tesla Model S vs. Its Competition

2020 Tesla Model S
Anthony Sophinos Anthony Sophinos Contributor

The Model S without any competition.

That is finally changing as established automakers are storming in with new cars.

The most direct competitor is from Stuttgart.

The 2020 Porsche Taycan is a killer sports sedan and blends the best design, performance, and heritage into one ultra-modern product.

Audi’s premium electric E-Tron SU wears a very conservative style, which might make it a popular choice among those not trying to be flashy trendsetters.

A more flamboyant choice is the Jaguar I-Pace crossover.

It wears a great racy body and has a practical cab-forward design.

The whole package is spacious and well-appointed.

The BMW 7-Series is a bona fide luxury hauler—but it's not electric.
