FIRST DRIVE: Audi RS e-tron GT, 637bhp EV review... feat. Marques Brownlee

2 Μάρ 2021
823 620 προβολές

The new Audi RS e-tron GT is more than just a Porsche Taycan in a sharp suit. It shares its platform and tech with the Porsche, but Audi is pitching it as more of a cruiser than an outright sports car... just one that happens to have supercar-shaming performance. With up to 637bhp available, it's not just the first Audi RS model to be pure electric, it's also the most powerful to ever wear the RS badge. Top Gear Magazine editor Jack Rix, is among the first to drive one and deliver his verdict. As a bonus, we also speak to tech-reviewer Marques Brownlee about his thoughts on Audi's new offering, and EVs in general. Marques is one of GRworld's top tech-experts and, as we reveal in the film, soon to be a new regular contributor to Top Gear Magazine with monthly written reviews on new electrified cars.

  • MKBHD and Tesla owners are techies not car enthusiasts. Which is absolutely fine, it's just that there is a difference in expectation and importance that are not automatically equal. Porsche designed the Taycan to be a Porsche that happened to be electric. So the range is not as important to that type of customer, nor do most enthusiasts worry about range. This RS e-tron is more of the same, though to a lesser extent. It's still not a general purpose EV with attributes that a general car buyer would be looking for. They're products catered to the markets in which their ICE counterparts already exist. Once GM, Honda, and Kia start flooding the market with EVs, the range argument and comparisons with Tesla models will make more sense.

    • @MauriceBln1 Look how far the technology has come in the last 2-4years and how far it needs to go to get to being a proper replacement for ICE. The tech in this car is going to be out of date in 2-4 years

  • Tesla's range isn't magic. They use the whole battery, lessening it's life, and they have far less protective shielding, but which is why their cars can have spectacular fires, and they have less cooling, which hinders their performance. It's not a secret.

  • It is actually scary that regular people can have F1 performance on the street. Without the driving experience or skills. 😬. So once you start to get below 3 seconds 0-60 and 600+ horsepower. It becomes accidents waiting to happen. There should be a special license required for these car specs. Like having a motorcycle license.

  • Asking a Tesla fanboy (most probably with a financial interest in Tesla) about what he thinks about the E-tron. What's the added value of that? The E-tron is available for a test drive today (same counts for the Taycan), Tesla's plaid+ is, as usual with Tesla, nice promises about a somewhere in the future. And still those guys call Tesla is "far" ahead of competition. Great journalism.

I have an electric car with 200 miles and live in a cold mountanois place and it is never a problem, even when doing long trips over in the snow. Provided you can charge at home and the country you live in has an adequate network of chargers, 300 miles is all you will need.

  • Something to keep in mind, top Tesla range vs everyone else, is 3-motors vs 2. To get that 500+ mile range, Tesla is going to use a tri-motor setup. Accounting for software management and other factors, they’ve found that to actually be more efficient- each motor is using less torque to drive the vehicle at the same velocity, or overcome inertia, as compared to a dual motor configuration.
