Jaguar I-Pace beats Tesla Model X from 0-60-0 in race video

New video shows drag race alongside Tesla SUV as Jaguar's first electric car is revealed in production form

Jaguar's glitzy reveal of the all-new I-Pace EV in production form is under way, but away from the main event the British carmaker has released a new video demonstrating it winning a drag race with a Tesla Model X (below).

The two all-electric SUVs go head-to-head at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez ePrix circuit in Mexico City, ahead of the Formula E race this weekend. Both a 75D and 100D version of the Model X are used in the race, which sees the EVs go from 0-60mph and then brake as hard as they can back to a standstill.
