In this episode of the CleanTechnica Ultimate EV Bracket Battle, we pit the standard-bearing grand-daddy of the modern EV movement against a slick, European upstart. It’s the Tesla Model S vs. the Audi e-tron GT, with CleanTechnica’s CEO, Zachary Shahan, championing the Model S while yours truly takes the side of the Audi e-tron GT.
They’re both premium electric sedans with heart-stopping, pants-s**tting acceleration and high-end, audiophile-favorite sound systems, so how do you choose between them? Zach thinks that Tesla’s Netflix and Disney+ capabilities, nationwide charging network, and video-gaming capabilities tip it over the edge, while I argue that all of those things are unwelcome distractions that get in the way of the task at hand: driving.
That said, there’s no getting away from the superiority of the Tesla Supercharger network, and the white “vegan leather” interior of the Tesla gives it a huge advantage in the hot Florida sun (especially with that all-glass roof). In fact, the more we get into it, the harder it seems to be to pick a winner. Watch the video, below, and see what we mean. Also, you can vote for your pick here.
