Finally OEMs bringing out some Tesla competitors. That is a great looking Audi, 200 mile range is :notbad: but I wish it was slightly higher, the 250 mile "euro" range is fake news as the EPA always haircuts it by 20-25%

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Yea they used it on that half assed hybrid/thing for 45k.

75k for the nice audi SUV seems competitive with the tesla products, but it doesn't come with Falcon Wing doors or a bio defense mode. :lolgasm:

Right, so it's weird that they're just recycling that name.

I'd buy an Audi before a Tesla, personally.

I think I would also, if they made competitive enough products. This is a really great shot across the tesla bow.

That "half-assed hybrid" was a good car, but it should have been a VW GTE. Near :turboyaris: performance with epic mpg was and still is a good idea. Electric vehicles continue to be a poor solution for most people. Only city dwellers who never leave the city can really use them, but those same people are unlikely to have access to chargers at home.

Maybe it was a good car, but the pricepoint was obscene. 40-50k. :disgust:

A3 with anything beyond the base :jalepenis: motor starts at $35k, the hybrid hatch started at $39k... "luxury" cars are simply :waxer: if bought new.

An A3 2.0T with nothing but blue paint and sport seats is $37400 MSRP.

The 1.8T is comparable to the 1.4T hybrid in terms of performance, the 2.slow also comes with quatbro. I know where I’d spend my doll hairs

That new Etron is bad ass, I’m also surprised they released it as “Etron” since that’s a name used for all their plug in vehicles. I thought it would be called Q6 Etron. I like it though, I’d lean towards that over the Model X.

Definitely agree. Isn't the Model X also like twice the price? I thought they were around $150k and absolutely hideous.

Yes yes worst car in the world from the worst company ever. Model x starts at 80 but goes to 140 if you go to the version that is faster than almost Hypercars. I thought they were ugly at first but they grew on me. We got like 5 of em at work and they are like civics out here. I dig em different from your Honda Odyssey that just says you gave up on life and died
