Audi e-Tron already discounting, too...

Audi's e-Tron got an even faster start on its discounting than the I-Pace! True to form, GCR is throwing shade on the next Tesla competitor to market!

What a bunch of hooey. In today’s market, 1.9% is not even close to a ‘big discount’.

Audi has a very aggressive EV program that has only started to roll out.
In the not too distant future it should outpace JLR so much that incentives might not matter as much.
I might be wrong but Audi seems to be favored here.

I hope so but lets see what they actually roll out. Im a big Audi fan here but the ETron SUV is a bit of a miss in my opinion.

Now lets see about the GTR...

In the Audiworld forum, prospective e-tron buyers are weighing the merits of being a first adopter of this battery powered Q8. The range seems to be the biggest issue. A lot of them are debating whether to get the e-tron or the Model X. I chimed in and suggested that there is another choice with the Jaguar I-Pace. Jaguar wasn't in my radar originally when looking for a lease replacement for my A3 e-tron, but that all changed with the I-Pace.

Avengers Endgame spoiler (ok, not really):


Tony Stark motors up to join the others driving an e-Tron. Good product placement for them!

In Avengers they showcase the e-Tron GT, a concept car, not the e-Tron SUV we're comparing to the I-Pace and MX.

Oh man, you're trolling the Audi forums? Gutsy! But you're spreading the good word, so good for you
