Electric SUV Comparison: Audi E-Tron Versus Mercedes EQ Versus Jaguar I-Pace
By definition, a luxury car is a vehicle that gives comfort and technology that is more than average, with a premium feel and most of the time, an expensive price tag.

Since all three luxury vehicles are still on the concept stages, most details have not been disclosed yet. However, we can assume that they are targeting the Tesla Model X as the competition. That competition could also be the reason why some details have not been announced yet to the public as each manufacturer want to hide their ace first to ensure victory from the rest. Whatever we choose from the Mercedes EQ, Audi E-Tron, or the Jaguar I-Pace, the clear winner will still be the consumer, as each will offer the best.
