Not as bad but yes, it throttles, and this is in “track mode” so it would be like jaguar releasing the racing modes to the
i Pace.

it’s one of my issues with Tesla, its always some amount of smoke and mirrors rather than a genuine “sports/performance” car.

A line of cars moving slowly in the freeway left lane? Guess who's in front? That's right! The Tesla driver zoning out on autopilot. Priuses don't give sufficient smugness anymore. Gotta get the Tesla for that.

Seriously, when I pull up to a light and have to get behind another car or two, I always judge who's going to be fastest. Priuses and Teslas are usually slowest off the line. A weird combo, but yeah...

E tron vs. I Pace

I ordered both an I Pace and a E Tron but released the E Tron and bought the I Pace.

Though the E Tron had better electronic interface, retractable sunroof with screen, trunk/frunck space, 4k towing, wireless Car Play, wireless cell phone charging and massage seats, I found the range unacceptable (about 200 miles) and handling unaspiring.

I bought the I Pace for design, road handling, range (quoted at 234 but I get 282 miles), acceleration and interior layout despite the lack of sunroof screen (available after market), no towing, slow info-entertainment interface, plug-in Car Play, and no massage seats.

Have you actually been able to travel 282 miles on a single charge or are you simply going by what your distance to empty gauge shows? I would be very interested in knowing under what conditions you are achieving 3.37miles/kWh.

How about a video where you're not driving in a straight line and see if the Tesla is still in front ... ? Esp after lap 3.

I drove the E-Tron again this weekend.
The build quality is superb, excellent finish & finish, but it's a boring car.
Is a big, bulky luxury automobile. I forgot it was even Electric

That's what I said instead of paying the premium for an EV

Sounds like only compelling thing is if you want an Audi and are concerned about carbon emissions. Probably a very small market.

I love Audis but the E Tron was just too boring.

Was at a car show 2 weeks ago, and saw a T-Shirt I enjoyed:
