Guess I never cared to see how much electric cars weighed till now.
5k-lb for a sedan is crazy.

It does look good though. Blows out any tesla exterior out of the water

Yes the Tesla Plaid weighs about 4800 lbs. Amazingly they reduced it by almost 200 lbs compared to the Tesla S.

This car has had my attention since it was first announced. It is an incredible machine, but with an incredible price tag to boot.

I considered buying one of these. Its just the infrastructure for electric isn't there yet.

Looked at the Plaid but its just too dam ugly! This is a BJ on wheels tho. The LED lights front and rear are absolutely wicked!

The range on this thing absolutely sucks! U get like 200 miles. Thats pathetic! Total FAIL!

Where are you seeing that range of 200 miles? There is zero range info on the Audi RS eTron GT website. If it IS only 200 miles, I wonder what percentage of "WOT" driving that includes.

i assume the 200 range is because they used the same approach that the Porsche Taycan did. It has the same range. I recall they took a different approach that allows them to recharge much faster. i can’t remember the specifics.

I would not say it is ugly. Looks decent from the rear with the wide stance. The front needs a little work. I did an image search and it is hard to find quality photos of the Plaid that don't have advertisements watermarked on them. I guess we'll have to wait until people start doing photoshoots of their Plaids.

Could very well be. It is, at that performance level, a limited distance runner. I’m waiting for super high performance EVs to eventually introduce extended ranges in the 400-500 mile range as battery technology evolves.

Check out this review of the Plaid. There's nice interior and exterior panning shots. I must say the car looks pretty nice IMO! But I do think the Audi e-tron looks better. Performance wise no contest. Plaid all the way!
