Default I'm now a bit of a traitor.

While we still own and drive Wendy, I ordered off the 'other' menu.

I ordered my first import car in decades.

A 2019 Jaguar i-Pace EV400 FE in Photon Red.
It's 394HP and 512ftlb of torque, AWD, with a 90 kWh battery.
It has air suspension and some Land Rover features to enable it for light off-roading, and will cross 20" deep water.
In theory, it will arrive in September.

They have established a racing series for these called eTrophy:

The Photon Red First Edition is a limited production car, the color and features will be only for 2019 based on a limited run.

It has similar performance on the road to a Tesla Model S or X, but for less money when equipped the same:

Sadly, I could not order it with a Baby Seal interior, and Whale Oil charged shocks. However, I will be able to buy Tofu burgers at 1/2 price.

And in case I get homesick, like a BMW, you can turn on a fake engine noise piped into the 825w stereo.
