If you currently have a Durango, and are looking at an eSUV or eTruck, have you ruled out Rivian? They have tons of backing (Ford, Amazon, and Cox) and production is to start middle of 2020. While the Truck and SUV start at $69,000 and $72,500 respectively, that's before the Federal rebate.
I have my own doubts about Tesla meeting their $50k projection, but that's kinda why I mentioned X5 vs Tesla...I figure one way or the other it'll cost me ~$70k, but the plus side to the Tesla is it won't cost me ANOTHER $25k in gas and maintenance before it's even paid off.
