New electric cars are hitting the market fast, and plenty more are in store for 2021, from luxury sedans to pickups and SUVs.
Taking Audi's 637-horsepower super sedan for a spin made for a thrilling (and sometimes frightening) first experience driving an electric car.
The entry-level Q4 E-Tron and Q4 E-Tron Sportback take direct aim at one of Tesla's best-selling vehicles, the Model Y.
Audi has always been a pioneer of LED daytime running lights. The 2021 RS 6 Avant I had recently took things a step further.
The 2021 RS 6 Avant I tested recently did cool light tricks when you locked or unlocked it. Inside, it even had futuristic, Tron-like cabin illumination. The best part was that the seat belt buckles lit up so you never had to find them by touch alone. Visit the Business […]
I spent the night in the back of an Audi RS 6 Avant wagon. Since it was 14 degrees Fahrenheit, we piled in a ton of blankets. The experience was warm, comfortable, and totally doable. Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories. “Remind me why we are doing […]
Heard you guys like stunts on this internet of ours. Well, here's my latest stunt: spending a 14-degree night in the back of an Audi RS 6 Avant wagon.
The 2021 RS 6 Avant is the first performance RS station wagon that Audi’s sold in the US. In the 10 days I spent with it, I found it was just as sporty and practical as any performance SUV. Prices start at $US109,000. After options, my loaner came out to […]
Audi unveiled the E-Tron GT, its $US100,000 flagship electric sedan. Its sportiest version, the $US140,000 RS, claims 590 horsepower and a 0-60-mph time of 3.1 seconds. The E-Tron GT hits US dealerships this summer. Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories. Audi took the wraps off of the […]
2020 was a massive year for electric vehicles, but 2021 may be even better. Battery-powered pickups, SUVs, luxury sedans, and more – ranging from around $US40,000 into the six figures – will hit US roads by the end of 2021. Over the next year, upstarts like Rivian, Bollinger, and Lucid […]
I drove four mid-engine cars this past year: the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette, the Audi R8, the McLaren GT, and the Lotus Evora GT. Last year, Insider’s Matt DeBord reviewed the Acura NSX. All of them offered a mix of cylinder counts, horsepower ratings, and price points. For me, the Corvette […]
Because most car keys are key fobs now, you can’t just put them in the ignition anymore. The 2020 Audi R8 I reviewed had a specialised slot in its centre console just for the key. It’s a great solution and became intuitive to use very quickly. Visit Business Insider’s homepage […]
The 2020 R8 is Audi’s halo car, with a naturally aspirated V10 positioned between its two axles. There are currently two versions of the R8 available: the V10 Quattro and the more powerful V10 Performance Quattro. My loaner was the more powerful version, starting at $US195,900. Fees and extra options […]
I tested a 2020 Audi S7, a suave fastback luxury sedan that was priced at a well-optioned $US89,990, just slightly higher than the already well-optioned base of $US83,900. The updated S7 has lost a V8 engine choice, but a 444-horsepower, twin-turbo V6 is a perfectly satisfying alternative. The S7 also […]
I compared an $US89,000 Audi e-tron SUV and a Tesla Model X, now selling for about $US100,000. The Model X has been the premier electric SUV in the market since 2015. The e-tron was touted as a challenger. But the e-tron has far less range than the Model X, and […]
There are five fully electric SUVs currently available in the US or coming soon to the US luxury vehicle market. This list includes the Tesla Model X and Y, Jaguar I-Pace, Audi e-tron, and the recently announced Cadillac Lyriq. These are the five electric luxury SUVs compared across various specs, […]
