CROSSING OVER WITH GUSTO
Jaguar’s first electric all-performance SUV, the 2019 Jaguar I-PACE hits U.S. roads early next year. This appealing crossover combines visually dramatic and aerodynamic elements—think flowing waistline, hood scoop and signature rear haunches—with practicality. One full charge powers the all-wheel drive I-Pace for 240 miles. Like other Jaguars, the I-Pace boasts a WiFi hotspot that enables occupants in every seat to stay connected and stream music, video and other data to their devices. From $69,500. jaguarusa.com

CHARGE IT
AdessoCharge lamps not only provide light, but they also power users’ smartphones. Available in a variety of contemporary styles and finishes, the lamps employ Qi inductive technology to recharge phones when they are in contact with the lamp base; they also offer a USB port. Shown in an antique brass finish with an adjustable shade. From $90 to $150. adessohome.com

TUNES ON THE GO
Created for active audiophiles, the portable Amico is a WiFi music system designed to play Internet radio, Spotify Connect, FM RDS and Bluetooth in any environment. Advanced Audio Coding delivers top-quality sound. The speaker is weather-resistant, with a teak veneer,  marine-grade plywood substrate and anodized metal knobs. The rechargeable device offers up to eight hours of playback. $399; comoaudio.com
