Audi e-tron gets disappointing EPA range estimate

Audi's US division has released the EPA-rated driving range for its e-tron quattro SUV ahead of a sales launch in the region next month, and it's not as good as you might expect. Official testing rates the e-tron as being capable of 204mi (328km) per charge, which is significantly behind its key rivals – namely the Jaguar I-Pace (234mi, 376.6km) and Tesla Model X Long Range (295mi, 474.7km).
