Which is Better, the Audi e-tron GT or the Tesla Model S?

As the demand for electric vehicles has surged over recent years, two of the most sought-after models are the Audi e-Tron GT and Tesla Model S. Both come packaged with plenty of impressive features, such as powerful acceleration and cutting-edge technology – but which one is right for you?

Comparing these cars can seem intimidating due to their sheer breadth of capabilities. We will delve into a thorough comparison between both models in order to determine which offers better value without sacrificing performance or quality. Factors including pricing variations, features set differences, capacity for handling various tasks, and emissions from each vehicle need to be taken into account when making our determination.

From an eye-catching exterior design to the kit underneath its hood - it's time take an objective look at how these two exorbitantly luxurious electric cars fare against each other!

Design

The Audi e-Tron GT is an imposing electric vehicle, with its ultra-wide track of rear wheels and glossy diffuser. It features three dimensional nature of light fittings and wheel designs, with alloy elements integrated into plastic hubcap pieces for a more sophisticated look. The black contrast elements gives it an intimidating presence from afar.

On the other hand, the Tesla Model S boasts a slinky silhouette that mimics both Jaguar XF’s and Audi A7’s rooflines design. Over the past couple years, its exterior has seen gradual improvements over time in terms of construction quality as well as styling refinements. Its interior design remains minimalistic but also offers greater tightness to construction compared to earlier versions. For functions and usability purposes, this EV comes fitted with version 8 of 17inch portrait screen display for controlling various car settings at your fingertips without any difficulty or confusion whatsoever.

Practicality

The Audi e-Tron GT has great adjustability with a low sporty position and plenty of headroom and arm space, as well as support for four adults. However, it offers less storage capacity than the Tesla Model S due to the limited battery space.

On the other hand, the Tesla Model S offers excellent storage capacity thanks to its 744 liters (seats up) and 1795 liters (seats down), plus 150 liter frunk compartment. Furthermore, torque is unaffected by extra cargo weight unlike other electric cars.

When it comes to amenities, both cars have their own strengths and weaknesses. The e-Tron GT features two cup holders in addition to console armrest box with wireless charger along with small door pockets while having no retractable shade on large fixed sunroof; whereas the Tesla Model S has none of these but does offer more roominess inside due to its flat floor, allowing rear passengers not having negotiate a transmission tunnel - though knees may get slightly higher may cause some numb bum on long trips. In terms of seating configuration, The e-Tron GT claims 5 seater but centre rear position is very narrow for adults since there’s raised central floor that allows additional battery space.

It’s clear that both cars offer a number of advantages over one another when it comes to practicality, so it ultimately depends on what features you prioritize the most.

Engine and Performance

The Audi e-Tron GT has two electric motors that provide adjustable all wheel drive and a 0-100km/h sprint time of 4.1 seconds for the GT version, or 3.3 seconds for the RS version. It features a 2 speed transmission with a low gear used in sport mode for takeoffs while the second is optimised for highway cruising or Eco Mode driving. The RS model further enhances agility at both high and low speeds by using an AWD steering system and locking rear differential.

In contrast, Tesla's Model S is powered by two 568kW electric motors which generates 1000Nm torque - allowing it to achieve 0-100 kilometres per hour in just 2.7 seconds when set to 'Ludicrous Mode'. Its battery pack functions as its chassis and contributes towards creating a super strong crash structure that adds additional protection to passengers during an accident as well as improving ride quality overall thanks to its large capacity.

Efficiency

The Audi e-Tron GT’s 83.7kWh lithium-ion battery can be charged to 80% in 22 and a half minutes with its 800V DC charger and 270 kW peak charging rate, giving it an impressive range of up to 540km from NEDC standards. It has dual AC ports on either side for slow charging purposes as well as an 11/22 kW AC inverter, allowing for charging time of 4 hours if you find a compatible unit - though this is quite a bit higher than the average energy consumption of 19.2/20.2 kWh/100km which makes the charge times faster overall but less efficient energy wise than some others models available.

Tesla Model S have been gaining traction in recent years due to their impressive combination of performance and range, averaging 400 km on a full charge. Tesla also offers “supercharger” stations where drivers can access premium charges quickly as well as adopting payment model changes starting January 2017 where electric cars get $1 per day charging fees when at these stations .  This ensures that people who own Tesla will always have access to fast chargers whenever they need them making them more convenient than other car brands EVs.

Driving Dynamics

The Audi e-Tron GT features a low seating position which allows the passengers to sit close to the ground. Its electric motor offers an instantaneous acceleration, drawing from its limitless torque when stepped on accelerator pedal. Despite its two-and-a half tonne body weight and 5 meters long size, the car performs with agility.

It is also equipped with adjustable air suspension that absorbs corrugations and smaller bumps for a smooth ride quality. Although steering response has improved in this model compared to other Audi cars, it does not provide much feedback through air suspension while driving. Meanwhile Tesla Model S P100D provides more G force acceleration than its predecessor (P90D) which is 0.6 seconds faster from zero speed to sixty miles per hour; producing more intense sensation of acceleration felt by passengers ranging from emotion to laughing or cursing out loud!

Which one is better?

Choosing between the Audi e-tron GT and Tesla Model S boils down to personal preference. Is a sleek, powerful electric sedan more up your street? The Model S is worth checking out in that case. However, if what you need is a robust and dependable car – well, there are very few vehicles that can beat Audi's offering: the legendary Audi e-tron GT.
