  1. Under 10 percent poppace.
    Or you do not want?
    This is far below the average, great premium luxury OEM.
    Please wake up Audi

  2. The Audi Etron GT I find great but is just a priceless sports car.

    Do not know what you can buy at Audi on the BEV if you do not want to be a half-wheeler SUV

  3. New Bev ? Only in the high-priced segment (SUV). What about the A1, A3, A4, etc. Not even in the PHEV area in the prior art. The A3 E-Tron was once the pioneer and now ? Almost 60 km E range only because the legislator pretends it since 2022. No CCS and AC only 2.8 kW, that can Mercedes Z.B. A250E better. Where is the projection by technology ?
