Dan “No Relation” Edmunds puts the U.S.-spec Audi e-tron through its paces in the mountains of Northern California. In his deep dive into the technology, quick charge capability and drive impressions of Audi’s first EV, we get a better indication of how it stacks up against the Tesla Model X and Jaguar I-Pace.
The e-tron isn’t as fast as its closest rivals, but it delivers plenty of overall performance. We give it high marks for comfort and convenience, which are critical to any SUV whether they’re electric or not. The e-tron’s EPA-estimated range of 204 miles also falls short of the Jaguar and Tesla, but Dan contends that with the fast-charge feature, it’s less of an issue.
Overall, Dan says the 2019 Audi e-tron is the “real deal” and looks to be a serious competitor in the growing EV market. Check back soon for our results from the Edmunds test track next.
