Earlier today, Audi announced its 2022 E-Tron GT battery-electric performance sedan, based on the Porsche Taycan platform.
Philip Engberg created just the perfect comparison graphic, comparing 0-60 mph, 1/4 mile, power and price (USD). So how does Tesla compare to the latest entry from Audi? Let’s see who wins each category below:
- 0-60 mph: Model S Plaid+
- 1/4 mile: Model S Plaid+
- Power: Model S Plaid+
- Range: Model S Plaid+
- Price: Model 3 Performance
While it’s not exactly fair to lump in the Model 3 Performance into a premium performance luxury sedan, the smaller electric sedan from Tesla can hold its own, especially when you consider its $54,990 USD price and its faster 0-60 mph time that beats the E-Tron GT RS by two-tenths of a second.
As Engberg says, “Tesla keeps the bragging rights.” At the end of the day though, consumers win as we see some more competition in the performance EV space, providing more options for the market.
